THE TEAM NEWS

INTERNAZIONALE

  • Internazionale know that a win will send them through to the last 16 and that is what they will have to aim for in their final group game.
  • Inter were kept goalless by Roma in Serie A on Friday and that is not ideal preparation with Barcelona the visitors in this one.
  • Antonio Candreva picked up a knock against Roma and is a doubt to feature but rumoured Barcelona target Lautaro Martinez should start.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar; Lazaro, Vecino, Brozovic, Borja Valero, Asamoah; Lukaku, Martinez

Unavailable: Barella (Injured), Sanchez (Injured), Sensi (Injured), Gagliardini (Injured)

Doubtful: Candreva (Injured)

BARCELONA

  • Barcelona have already confirmed their place at the top of Group F but will still want to end their group campaign on a high.
  • Messi has not travelled to Milan for this game with the recent Ballon d'Or winner afforded a rest following a hat-trick on the weekend.
  • Valverde may opt to make several other rotations with some of their younger squad members set to pick up some valuable playing time.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Wague, Araujo, Umtiti, Junior Firpo; Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal; Carles Perez, Griezmann, Ansu Fati

Unavailable: Dembele (Injured), Sergi Roberto (Rested), Pique (Rested), Messi (Rested)

Doubtful: Nelson Semedo (Injured), Jordi Alba (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Internazionale need a win to progress to the last 16 at the expense of Borussia Dortmund although a draw would also suffice if Dortmund fail to beat Slavia Praha. It will be a tough ask for Inter who host Barcelona and in what should be an open game, both teams are likely to score.
