Predicted Barcelona XI vs Inter Milan

Barcelona travel to Italy to face Inter Milan at the San Siro in the third round of the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

Xavi will most likely rotate the team from the one that beat Mallorca over the weekend. Gerard Piqué is predicted to make way for Eric García, while Jordi Alba will almost certainly be replaced by Marcos Alonso at left-back.

Given the threat he provided in front of goal against Bayern Munich, Raphinha will probably start ahead of Ansu Fati.

Pedri was rested against Mallorca following the international break, so he will likely return to the starting XI ahead of Franck Kessié.

Barcelona are looking to beat their Italian opponents to maximise their chances of making the knock-out rounds of the Champions League.

AS predict that Xavi will field the following starting XI vs Inter Milan: Marc-André ter Stegen – Sergi Roberto, Andreas Christensen, Eric García, Marcos Alonso – Gavi, Sergio Busquets, Pedri – Ousmane Dembélé, Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha.
