It seems Barcelona wants to move to the Champions League round of the last sixteen with Inter Milan. Tomorrow, Barcelona is going to play against Inter Milan which is the 2nd leg between these two teams in the UCL group stage. The calculation for the Italian club of moving to the next round seems not so easy but quite difficult. It is quite important for the Barca-Inter’s groupmate Borussia Dortmund. If the team of Conte can manage the victory against Barcelona, they can secure their next round journey. Now, it seems that Barcelona is giving Inter Milan a chance.
However, Barcelona already secured their position in the next round of the Champions League. So, in the important match, the Catalan club is giving the Serie A top team Inter a chance. Before the match, they have revealed their squad list and the most surprising fact is that Lionel Messi is not in the squad.

In the Champions League group F, Barcelona is holding the top position on the point table. They have gathered the highest 11 points there. The 2nd and 3rd place holder teams are Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund. Both teams have gathered seven points each. But considering the goal difference and head to head battle, Inter Milan is ahead still. In the situation, Inter Milan is going to host the match against Barcelona tomorrow.
For the match, the Barcelona coach did not keep Lionel Messi in the squad. Not only Messi but also he has given rest to the top stars of the club named Gerard Pique, Nelson Semedo, Arthur, Ousmane Dembele, Jordi Alba, and Roberto. At the same time, he has selected a number of young players like Fati, Todibo and some others. The hints are clear. He is giving rest his top stars for the next important matches and also wants to see his young talents performance.
