Inter Milan host Barca

Iter Milan will be looking to join Barcelona in the last-16 stage of the Champions League when both teams round off their Group F campaign with a clash in Italy tonight.

Barca have already booked their spot in the knockout round as group winners, but Inter are battling Borussia Dortmund for the second qualification spot.

Inter’s task is actually quite simple; win and they would be guaranteed a spot in the knockout round of the competition. Antonio Conte’s side could also lose and still go through providing that Dortmund do not pick up a draw or better against Slavia Prague in the section’s other fixture.

Both Inter and Dortmund have seven points to show from their five matches, but the Italian side are second on the head-to-head record, meaning that Dortmund will have to rely on Barca picking up a result if the Bundesliga giants are to sneak into the last-16 stage of the tournament.

Inter picked up a 1-1 draw when they last welcomed Barca to San Siro during the group stages of the 2018-19 competition. They have only won one of the nine meetings between the two teams, though, which came on home soil during the semi-finals of the 2009-10 tournament, where they won the trophy under Jose Mourinho. – SportsMole
