Lionel Messi is the main weapon of Barcelona but reportedly Messi will not play against Inter Milan in the Champions League! He has been given rest in the next UCL match. At the San Siro Stadium, Milan tomorrow the Catalan club will play against the Italian club Inter Milan and it will be the last Champions League group stage match. In the ongoing season, the Argentine forward has played fifteen matches considering all the competitions and scored 14 goals so far. In the meantime, the 32nd years old has scored two goals in the Champions League and assisted three times so far.
Excluding Messi, there are few players who can not take part in the competition for the same reason. Barcelona has a very tight and tough schedule ahead and the first El Clasico of the season is coming fast. So, the Barca coach Ernesto Valverde has given rest to his best weapons. The two defenders Roberto and Gerard Pique will not take part in the match. Besides, due to the injury Ousmane Dembele, Nelson Semedo, Jordi Alba and Arthur also are out of the ground.
But it is matters not. The fact is Lionel Messi will not play against Inter Milan in the Champions League! So, it seems that the Catalan giants are giving an important chance to the Italian club Inter Milan. Barca would nearly use their 2nd eleven against the Serie A top club. And so, the Conte’s team will get a chance to manage the victory against Barcelona.
The decision of Barca seems not to be welcomed by the German club Borussia Dortmund. Because they are also fighting for their place into the next round of the last sixteen in the Champions League. Both of them have gathered the seven points each but considering the head to head fight and goals difference, Inter is ahead. So, if they can manage the victory against Barcelona, Inter will go to the next round without any calculations.
In that case, Borussia counted the club Barcelona because they have Lionel Messi. Now, when the Barca boss confirmed the absence of LM10, they are in great pressure. But, it is Barcelona who has a huge number of top-rated players like Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez. They have the ability to beat Inter Milan no doubt.
