INT vs BAR Dream11 | Team News
Manchester United loanee, Alexis Sanchez is still out of contention due to an ankle injury. Stefano Sensi and Nicolo Barella have both been real assets in midfield but unfortunately for Conte both players are on the sidelines. Kwadwo Asamoah recovered from a knee injury and came off the bench against AS Roma. Antonio Candreva is also likely to play a part against Barcelona after overcoming a back injury. In case, Candreva is unable to make the cut, Danilo D’Ambrosio and Valentino Lazaro could come in as replacements.
Ousmane Dembele, Jordi Alba and Nelson Semedo are all ruled out due to injuries, while Arthur and Ansu Fati are doubtful to start against Mallorca. Ernesto Valverde could shuffle a few players now that Barcelona has qualified to the next round. Arturo Vidal, Carles Perez and Samuel Umtiti might be in line of getting starts. The two frontline attackers, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are sidelined for the upcoming fixture.
Inter Milan- Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar; Biraghi, Valero, Brozovic, Vecino, Candreva; Martinez, Lukaku
Barcelona- Ter Stegen; Roberto, Umtiti, Lenglet, Firpo; De Jong, Vidal, Rakitic; Perez, Griezmann, Fati
Romelu Lukaku has been a constant threat from Inter’s perspective and has brought in the goals this season. The Belgian international has 11 goals and two assists from 19 appearances in Seria A and the Champions League combined.
In the absence of Suarez and Messi, Antoine Griezmann could get an opportunity to play down the middle for Barcelona. Griezmann has five goals and four assists in La Liga while also contributing with a goal in the Champions League this season.
Lautaro Martinez has been as effective as Lukaku in the forward line for Inter Milan. The Argentina international has five goals from five Champions League games while also scoring eight goals in the Italian league this season.
Frankie de Jong will have to play the anchor role in FC Barcelona’s midfield. The former Ajax man has a pass accuracy of 90% in La Liga as well as the Champions League
In the reverse fixture, it was two sublime goals by Luis Suarez which won Barcelona the game at Camp Nou. However, Inter Milan at San Siro will be a tough cookie to crack and they might just be able to nick a win against the Catalans.
