Barcelona - Inter

Pep Guardiola has been facing a lots of problems these days. Barca have noticed three consecutive league draws on the road (Valencia, Osasuna, Athletic Bilbao) and left the first place to the worst enemies from Madrid (who will face for the weekend at home in new El Clasico, btw.). Team doesn’t perform well, it’s obvious. Unusually for them, have plenty of problems to score. Leo Messi is completely out of shape. He’s also injured and predictions are he won’t play. Ibrahimovic is surely more expensive than Eto’o, but he can not reach the same number of goals as Cameronian, so far. As Messi, he’s also injured but is expected to appear. Eric Abidal and Yaya Toure have both been diagnosed with the H1N1 flu virus and are isolated. Rafa Marquez is ill, but it has been discerned that the Mexican does not have Influenza A, and depending on his progress, he may be able to play. And one long term injury - Gabriel Milito! Lack of result here would mean Barca will fight for progress in the last round against Dynamo Kiev on the road!

Inter keep the absolute domination in domain frames, have noticed 10 wins and just a single defeat in opening 13 rounds and are in run of 10 games without a defeat. Problem is, however, Massimo Moratti wants a Champions League trophy and it has been well explained to Jose Mourinho. Despite the tiny achievement in past four group rounds, three draws (and one win), Inter hold the first position in group with a point more than Barca and are in good position. Win in Spain would practically secure the progress and first place, while draw would leave the decision for the last round and game at Meazza against Rubin Kazan. Mourinho is well aware the keeping a draw at Camp Nou would be a suicidal mission. He’s also aware about the moment where the Spanish giant is. Oppositely, his lads have been playing in a great shape and he hasn’t any injury worries as well. If Inter win, that will push the title defender very close to elimination. Answer on Barca’s attacks will be tight formation and waiting for some counter attack. And Samuel Eto'o will have another opportunity to prove his departure from Barcelona was harsh.

Beside the importance that game brings for Italians, I have the impression this is also a test of maturity for Mourinho. A big win would return him on the big scene, while defeat would move him closer to the exit door from Meazza. I give a small advantage to Italians, but Barca will attack anyway. However, goals shouldn’t miss. Pinnacle offer 2.10. Over.
