Team News
Due to a thigh injury sustained on international duty, Inter will once again be without midfield fulcrum Marcelo Brozovic on Tuesday. Since the start of last season, the Nerazzurri have won 69% of their Serie A matches with the Croatian playmaker on the pitch; in four without him, they have failed to win once.

In addition to Brozovic's absence, Romelu Lukaku remains on the road to recovery from a thigh injury, so Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa fight it out to partner Lautaro Martinez up front in Simone Inzaghi's favoured 3-5-2 formation.

Hakan Calhanoglu returned from the start and struck the crossbar with a thunderous free kick on Saturday, so should feature in midfield, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan will compete for selection with Kristjan Asllani and Roberto Gagliardini to join the Turkey international and Nicolo Barella.

In goal, club captain Samir Handanovic's performances have come under scrutiny, so Andre Onana should be handed another Champions League opportunity.
Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Asllani, Calhanoglu, Dimarco; Martinez, Dzeko

Barcelona, meanwhile, travel to Italy without Memphis Depay, Frenkie De Jong and Jules Kounde, after they each picked up injuries in the Nations League last month.

Ronald Araujo may miss the rest of 2022 after undergoing thigh surgery, while Hector Bellerin is sidelined by a calf problem sustained in training last week. As a result, either Sergi Roberto or Alex Balde must fill in at right-back.

Pedri and Raphinha are likely to come back into the starting XI after starting Saturday's game on the bench, as Xavi continues to rotate his resources amid a packed schedule leading towards the World Cup.
Barcelona possible starting lineup:
Ter Stegen; Roberto, Christensen, Garcia, Alba; Kessie, Busquets, Pedri; Dembele, Lewandowski, Raphinha
Prediction: Inter Milan 1-2 Barcelona
