Lionel Messi will miss tonight’s game as he works his way back from an injury. Messi missed the first month of Barcelona’s season (he is already back to the top of the Spanish scoring charts, which is laugh-out-loud funny) and is still working his way back to two-games-in-a-week fitness.
Barcelona will rotate throughout. Perez and Fati, the young sensation, will partner Antoine Griezmann up front. Barca are expected to make up to seven changes.
Inter and Barcelona’s head honchos will meet prior to the game to discuss transfers. Inter have interest in Arturo Vidal — who is expected to play tonight. Barca are willing to let Vidal join Inter, just not on an initial loan deal. Barcelona are seeking a full transfer that will also give them written preferential treatment for both Lautaro and Stefano Sensi.
