The reigning European Champions, Barcelona, will start their defense of the title in an exploding titanic match against the Italian champions, Inter Milan. The two teams have been in close contact all throughout the close season due to transfer of strikers Samuel Eto and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This is one of the most anticipated ties in the first round of the Champions League group stages.
Inter Milan looks likely to challenge Barcelona for their European dominance and a win here could cement who goes through Group F as winner. Coach José Mourinho took Samuel Eto’o to San Siro and he has been a big hit amongst the Inter fans. Eto’o also managed to get his name on the score sheet last weekend in the 2-0 win at home against Parma. Inter’s Diego Milito is another bright player that Mourinho has bought in. Inter’s goal this year is for the Portuguese to win the Champions League.
Barcelona is looking to become the first team to defend the European crown since Milan did it in 1989/90. They warmed up with a 2-0 win over Getafe away in the weekend and new boy Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the first goal while Leo Messi finished off the match. Ibrahimovic was not a big hit amongst the Inter fans and certainly not with Mourinho either. He will be proving himself to his former club and it will certainly be with a big reaction full of emotions. Barcelona will have every man available for this tie.
Last time these two teams met was back in 2002 in the group stages. The match ended with a goalless draw and both teams qualified to the last 16. A draw would suit both teams and most likely see Eto and Ibrahimovic scoring too. Check out Betsson as they are offering 3.20 for a draw.
