INTER MILAN V BARCELONA Betting Tips (Champions League Apr 20):
With the long journey Barcelona have made by road to Milan, a lot of people see it as a bit of a disadvantage as they take on an Inter side no doubt highly motivated by Jose Mourinho and I'd be in the same boat. The Barca players must be feeling a bit lethargic and any slack play will be punished with the likes of Sneijder, Milito and the Barcelona old boy Samuel Eto ready to pounce....

The bookmakers see this as pretty confident away favourites but IMO, it's a game totally in the balance. It's a game with plenty of side stories to it such as Mourinho's relationship with Barcelona and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (who returned to action from the bench against Espanyol) and Eto facing their clubs of last year. Barcelona always give up chances and I fancy Inter Milan to create for Diego Milito tonight, while Messi is still obviously on fire for the away side. Don't be surprised to see a Mourinho inspired Inter Milan pull another one out of the bag though.

  1. Barcelona could only managed to win an away game out of 5 in Champions League competition. Thus, I don't expect any outstanding performance from them when travel to Milan tonight.

    For the host team, it is a good sign to Mourinho after successfully defeated Fiorentina and Juventus last week. That was a great warm up to Inter Milan in preparation for tough challengers. From there, it has proven that Mourinho knows very well to handle different type of strong challengers.

    Inter Milan with 1/4 head start sounds a value bet.
