Barcelona will host Inter Milan at Camp Nou in their second match of UEFA Champions League 2019-20 season. All four teams in Group F are level with a point each. Marc-André ter Stegen’s penalty save from Dortmund captain Marco Reus helped Barcelona settle for a goalless draw against Borussia Dortmund in their first match. On the other hand, Inter Milan needed an added-time equaliser from Nicolo Barrella to register a 1-1 draw against Slavia Praha. The Spanish giants have dominated in their clashes against Inter Milan over the years at Camp Nou. Here is a list of top five matches between Barcelona and Inter Milan.
The most recent meeting came last season where 22-year-old Malcolm scored the first goal of the match putting Barca in front. Meanwhile, Mauro Icardi, who is currently playing for Paris Saint-German, scored an 87th-minute goal for Inter Milan to settle for a draw at San Siro in Italy. Two weeks before that game, Barcelona recorded a 2-0 victory against Inter Milan. Rafinha scored the opening goal for Barcelona in the 32nd minute while Jordi Alba scored the second goal for the team in the 83rd minute. Barcelona have an incredible record against Inter Milan at home as they have never conceded a goal in their four matches.

The two teams have played only six other matches - all of them in UEFA Champions League. In the 2002-03 campaign, Barcelona won the first match 3-0 at Camp Nou before settling for a goalless draw at San Siro. Both the teams were eliminated in the quarter-finals that season. Meanwhile, in the 2009-10 season, Inter Milan settled for a draw at San Siro before losing 2-0 to the Spanish giants, coached by Pep Guardiola at Camp Nou. Both the teams advanced to the knockout stage, reuniting in the semis. Inter had a 3-1 win in the first leg at home, but they incurred 1-0 loss at Camp Nou. Jose Mourinho’s Inter held on to enter the final, defeating Bayern Munich to claim Inter’s third European title and a historic treble that season.
