Messi To Return? | Predicted 4-3-3 Barcelona Lineup Vs Inter Milan

Barcelona will look to continue their good form in the Champions League when they take on Inter Milan in their next matchup. The La Liga leaders won the first leg clash against the Italian giants and will look to repeat that again in the second leg at the San Siro.

The Blaugrana have won all of their three matches so far in the Champions League. Inter Milan, on the other hand, have only lost one game in their European campaign and would look to make most of their home advantage when they lock horns with the Spanish giants.

It comes as a big boost for Barcelona as their talisman Lionel Messi is back in training after missing the action for the last three weeks. Defensive ace Samuel Umtiti is also on his way to recovery. However, Ernesto Valverde might not risk using them in the next match against Inter Milan with a long season ahead of them.


Marc Andre Ter Stegen would once again start in the goal for the Catalan club. He would like to put behind the disappointment of conceding twice in the last La Liga match against Rayo Vallecano going into the European clash.


Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique have paired up well in the heart of the defence for the Blaugrana and will continue their good work against Inter. Sergi Roberto will start on the right of the backline while Jordi Alba would continue his stint as the left back.


The trio of Ivan Rakitic, Arthur and Sergio Busquets have been on point with their passing, interceptions and goal scoring so far this season. They will once again be deployed in their familiar positions in the midfield for the next match.


Luis Suarez has been in terrific form this season so far and has been on a goal-scoring spree. He will lead the line for Barcelona and would look to add to his goals tally. He will be accompanied by Philippe Coutinho and Rafinha, who has taken his game to a whole new level in the absence of Lionel Messi.

Predicted Formation: 4-3-3
