It’s already make or break in the Champions League for Barcelona, who know they cannot afford to lose to Inter Milan this week. Xavi’s side are doing well in La Liga, currently top of the table ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference, with seven wins and one draw from their opening eight matches. But things have been slightly different in the Champions League.

Placed in what many consider this season’s Group of Death, Barcelona opened their campaign with a 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen which put them top of Group C. The real tests came after, though, and Barcelona were beaten 2-0 by Bayern Munich before last week’s 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan. Should Barcelona lose this week, they will be six points behind Inter and unable to overtake the Italians by virtue of their worse head-to-head record.

On the flip side, Inter Milan could secure their spot in the last 16 this week, though things aren’t as cut and dry. For Inter to qualify they have to win but also hope Viktoria Plzen drop points against Bayern Munich. While that will be expected, nothing is a 100% guarantee in football, and Plzen will be hoping to frustrate Bayern in Plzen.

The Champions League run for Inter, with two wins from three games, has come with the club not doing as well in Serie A. After nine matches, Simone Inzaghi’s men are seventh, five points behind fourth-placed Udinese with five wins and four defeats – only ending a losing streak at the weekend against Sassuolo.

Barcelona vs Inter Milan match stats

Inter Milan frustrated Robert Lewandowski last week but on home turf the Polish striker is a different beast. Lewandowski has been directly involved in 27 goals in his last 15 Champions League home games, scoring 22 and providing a further five assists, including a hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen last month.

Barcelona also love playing at home against Inter Milan. In five previous matches in the Champions League at Camp Nou, Barcelona have managed five victories with four clean sheets (and only one goal conceded). Inter have lost more games at Camp Nou than at any other away stadium in the Champions League.
