Barcelona vs Inter Milan
Champions League 2019/20 season
Venue: Camp Nou
Date: Wednesday 2nd October, 2019
Kick-off time: 3pm EST
Barcelona are looking to kickstart their Champions League campaign as Inter Milan head to Camp Nou this evening
Barca have had a difficult start to the season, losing two of their opening seven La Liga games and holding on for a goalless draw at Borussia Dortmund in their opening Group F game.
Inter also drew their opening game at home to Slavia Prague, but Antonio Conte’s side sit top of Serie A with six wins from six – and the Nerazzurri should offer the Blaugrana a real contest in Catalonia.
Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele have been passed fit to be included in the Barcelona squad to face Inter in the Champions League.

Barcelona have won 29 of their last 32 Champions League games at the Camp Nou (D3), with their last defeat dating back to May 2013 against Bayern Munich (0-3).
