Barcelona vs. Milan OddsWith his best men , Barcelona play against Milan and has a great opportunity to kill off virtually their qualifying group for the first change , which if he can get the win against the Rossoneri .

The Catalans added two wins after two games and are two points ahead of Milan , another victory would open the doors of the top spot at the end of the first round of the competition.

It will be the first game on a big week for the team of ' Tata ' Martino . First Milan and then Real Madrid, two games in a few days to know exactly at what point is the Barca team that just lost their first points in the league after a goalless draw in Pamplona .

It will also be a good way to check if the Argentine coach continues his idea of rotating his players more loaded , as it has done so far, or if instead you choose to trust an eleven more stable.

In one case or another, the club has only low Jordi Alba. The rest of the equipment is available. Is Leo Messi , who played a few minutes against Osasuna , and returned with full guarantees Carles Puyol. Also Javier Mascherano is back.


Comes time to make decisions. Will trusting center Marc Bartra and now that Martino has recovered Puyol and Mascherano ? Who will form the core has returned now that Messi and Cesc has not put as false nine ?

All indications are that the club wear their best clothes . Mascherano and Pique form the defensive axis . Puyol does not appear that , after seven month low , is still to large gatherings , and would be a surprise that Bartra , although he has earned , were the chosen .

On the sides , Alves and Adriano are the stakes. Midfielder Busquets is unshakable . Ahead , Xavi and Iniesta play triplet interior and defense is obvious. Messi lead the shares, from left Neymar and Alexis Sanchez, who rested against Osasuna , on the right .

Milan sign the perfect party look . The two teams duel repeat the Champions League in a career in which statistics play in favor of the Catalan team .

The Rossoneri will face yet the absence of star striker Mario Balotelli with a thigh problem and the question of its titular goal Abbiati , while coach Massimiliano Allegri also should evaluate the physical condition of Kaka, who has not been maximum regained form after the injury he suffered in Turin.

Thus, it appears that Milan coach could repeat in the starting formation which ranked last in the league match against Udinese , with the entry of Mexes and De Jong , and in which the Rossoneri won the victory .

A 4-3-3 with a trident formed Alessandro Matri attack , Robinho and Valter Birsa , who scored that last victory ' Rossoneri ' , to contest the opening minutes , leaving space after Kaka throughout the game.

The Brazilian look again be decisive in the Italian before a Barcelona that is presented as a difficult opponent after his previous experiences with Milan and Real Madrid.

In the last two years Milan and Barcelona have met six times, although it is probably the comeback that Barca crowned last year in the eighth leg of the Champions League by signing a 4-0 win at the Camp Nou following a 2-0 defeat at San Siro , which weighs on the mind more milanista for tomorrow .

Probable teams :

Milan : Amelia , Abate, Mexes or Silvestre , Zapata , Constant , Montolivo , de Jong , Muntari , Birsa , Robinho and Matri .

Barcelona : Valdés , Alves , Piqué , Mascherano , Adriano , Busquets , Xavi , Iniesta , Alexis , Messi and Neymar .

Referee: Felix Brych (GER ) .

Venue: Giuseppe Meazza .

Time: 20:45 ( 18.45 GMT ) .

Betting Odds: Barcelona 4/7, Draw 16/5, Milan 11/2.
