Though not guaranteed a starting role due to his fitness issues, Lionel Messi is top on the list of players expected to rock Camp Nou tonight as Barcelona host Inter in the second Champions League Group F tie.

Having both drawn their group opener, the two European giants are eager to secure their first win in the competition; thus setting the stage for a possible explosive encounter.

Barca were held to a 0-0 stalemate at Borussia Dortmund while Inter settled for a 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague last time out.

Wednesday’s Champions League game comes at a crucial time for Ernesto Valverde amid Barcelona’s tough start to the domestic season, sitting in fourth place in La Liga, two points adrift of leaders Real Madrid.

Inter on their part are cruising as they have maintained a perfect start to their Serie A campaign under Antonio Conte, winning six out of six matches.

The records are firmly in favour of Barcelona who in the last nine matches between the teams have lost just once (San Siro, April 2010, 1-3).

Inter have also lost on five of their six visits to the Camp Nou with their only win being in the Fairs Cup in 1970.
