Barcelona host Inter Milan at the Nou Camp this evening in the fourth round of the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Barcelona have been struggling for goals over the last couple of games and they must beat Inter Milan in order to stand a realistic chance of progressing to the next round of the competition.
With his shortage of defenders and their necessity to get on the scoresheet against their defensively well-drilled Italian opposition, Xavi may opt to utilise a 3-4-3 formation as opposed to his usual 4-3-3 configuration, with Frenkie de Jong most likely slotting into the Blaugrana’s defensive line.
Predicted Barcelona lineup against Inter Milan
AS predict that Xavi will field the following starting XI against Inter Milan this evening: Marc-André ter Stegen – Frenkie de Jong, Gerard Piqué, Eric García – Gavi, Sergio Busquets, Pedri, Marcos Alonso – Ousmane Dembélé, Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha.
