There is little doubt that Barcelona vs Internazionale is the biggest game in this year’s Champions League as it features perhaps the two best teams in Europe, current champions of Spain and Italy respectively. Inter took a surprising 3-1 lead in the first leg and now have one foot at the Bernabeu. For Barca, it looks like this game would be an uphill battle as they have to score at least 2 goals against one of the tightest defensive lines in club football right now.What should we expect from the game and which are the best bets to lay money on? These are the questions addressed in this material.
Italian teams are known for their outstanding defense and Inter is no exception to that rule. They have a great goalkeeper (Julio Ceser) with 4 really good defenders in front of him. Lucio and Samuel did an excellent job neutralizing Messi in Italy and if they repeat that performance chances are quite high Inter will reach the Final. Maicon also had an amazing night as he was not only perfect in defense but managed to score a goal and always looked dangerous in attack. He will be available for tonight’s game after the collision with Messi at the Meazza last Tuesday. But it wasn’t only Inter’s defenders who contributed to the result as their forwards Milito, Eto’o and Pandev were pressing Barca all over the pitch running like crazy. They have to do the same thing tonight to stand a chance against the Catalans.
With all that mind, it won’t be a surprise to see Inter keeping a clean sheet in this game. In fact, it’s a good idea to bet on Goalless Draw (0-0) as the odds for that are 15.00! But if Barca manage to score in the first 20 minutes of the game, it will be an entirely different game altogether and it might even go into Extra Time if it ends 3-1 again.
