INTER 1-1 BARÇA | Match preview

FC Barcelona can wrap up first place in UEFA Champions League group B — the so-called group of death — with a triumph on Tuesday night at Inter Milan in just their fourth game, an achievement that would have been unthinkable at this stage of the tournament when last September's draw lumped the two European giants into the round robin juggernaut along with imposing sides Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven.

And yet, here we are — with three games to play in the group stage and having done nothing but win during Leo Messi's absence due to a fractured arm, Barça can claim a spot in the last 16 as group winners for the 12th season in a row, a feat which would allow them not only to rest the big guns on the final two matchdays but also to avoid all the other group winners when the first knockout stage rolls around this winter.
