Tomorrow, they will visit San Siro to face Inter in the third round of the Champions League group stage. Simone Inzaghi’s side are level on points with Barca in the group stage , having won one of their two available games so far, both against Plzen. However, the league paints a completely different fixture for each of them.
On the one hand, Milan are struggling, struggling in Serie A , winning four of eight games and finishing ninth. Meanwhile, Barcelona are La Liga leaders after Real Madrid dropped points against Osasuna last night.
Inter Milan’s head coach has praised the Catalans as the favourites to enter the competition, saying they are one of the best three teams in Europe at the moment .
Robert Lewandowski is in great shape
The supercenter Lewandowski is in excellent condition, scoring 9 goals in the past 6 La Liga rounds, and scoring a genius goal last weekend to help Barcelona beat Mallorca 1-0 .
In the first round of the Champions League group stage, Lewandowski scored a hat-trick to help Barcelona beat Pilsen 5-1 at home. On September 14th , the away game lost 0-2 to Bayern, and Lewandowski was out of standard. This time he went to the Champions League away again, and his performance was crucial. However, Barcelona is full of talents on the offensive end. Rafinha, Pedri, and Ferran Torres, who came off the bench in the last game, impacted the starting qualifications. They, Dembele and Fati can share the pressure of Lewandowski.
Both teams have an incomplete lineup. Relatively speaking, Barcelona’s three lines are stronger, so it is worth looking forward to.
