Romelu Lukaku is out for the game. Conte has a decision to make between Alexis Sanchez or Politano to support Lautaro. “Lukaku is not here with us, he had a slight muscular issue in his quadricep that he has been carrying for 10 days. He was continuing to feel the problem and the tests were negative, but we preferred in any case not to take any chances with him,” Conte explained as part of his pre-match press conference. Lukaku is expected to be back for Inter’s game vs. Juve this weekend.
Antonio Candreva is expected to be healthy and available for selection. Conte, however, appears set to be more cautious and start D’Ambrosio ahead of the weekend.
Lionel Messi will not start for Barca but he will be available to come off the bench, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Teenage sensation Ansu Fati is also out for this game, along with Jordi Alba and Samuel Umiti. Ousmane Dembele is doubtful. Inter couldn’t hope for a better shot at winning in the Nou Camp.
