Leva and Barca arrive at “Giuseppe Meac”

The players of Inter will welcome Barcelona in the derby of the third round of the Champions League. The match of group “C” in Milan will be a kind of battle for second place. Namely, Bayern is the leader with six points, it is expected that the Bavarians will defeat Victoria on their field and thus maintain their maximum performance, while tonight’s rivals have three points on their account. Whoever triumphs will be one big step closer to the knockout phase of the competition.

The teams enter this match in diametrically opposite moods. The “Neroazuri” experienced two consecutive defeats in Serie A, the last one against Roma at home 1:2, the Catalans have the maximum performance in the same number of matches without conceding a goal. Xavi’s men beat Elche 3:0, and then Mallorca by a minimal score.

Simone Inzaghi’s lineup continued to oscillate, not only at the beginning of the season, but throughout the match with Roma. For ninety minutes, the “nerazuri” went from brilliance to despair, at one moment they looked like a championship team, and at another they were a team that was completely powerless in trying to organize a real attack in front of the opponent’s goal. In any case, Roma managed to end a streak of 10 games without a win against tonight’s opponent and record the first celebration since February 2017 when they also celebrated at Giuseppe Meazza (3:1).

Roma had the hardest time “surviving” the first half hour of the match. Dimarko’s goal, which was helped by a rather bad intervention by Ruj Patrici, was preceded by a disallowed goal by Edin Džek, after an excellent action by the home team in the 10th minute of the game.

However, the reversal of the Romans followed.

Handanović was tormented by Leonardo Spinacola and Paulo Dybala twice in a row before conceding the goal, after which the Argentine once again showed what a master he is. He caught the volley in an excellent way after Spinacola’s cross and sent an undefended shot into the home net. The final score was set in the 75th minute. Lorenzo Pellegrini made a phenomenal break, and Chris Smalling caught the ball in the right way and sent it into the left corner of the petrified Handanović.

If anyone had the slightest doubt as to whether Robert Lewandowski would adapt to the conditions of playing in Barcelona and the Spanish Primera, it is now clear to him that he was seriously mistaken. The fantastic Pole did not adapt quickly, but became the footballer who reached the fastest nine goals in the Spanish championship in this century. He managed to do it in seven matches and from only 18 shots into the opponent’s goal. A 20th minute goal against Mallorca the previous weekend was enough to take the points away from the Balearic Islands – 1:0.

Considering the form Inter is in, Barca is a bigger favorite than before the start of the competition. For the “Neroazures”, even a draw would be a success.
