Inter will have to have 100% focus on tonight’s game against PSV, but can not completely neglect what is happening on Camp Noú at the same time.

In order to qualify to the knock-out stage Inter has to do a better match result than Tottenham who will face an already qualified Barcelona that has already secured the first place in the group. Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has reassured Inter that they will not fold but has at the same time announce a couple of changes: Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, Malcom and Rafinha are out, Luis Suarez, Piqué, Ter Stegen, Rakitic and Busquets all are on the bench.

On the other front, Mauricio Pochettino will have Aurier, Dembelé, Sanchez, Trippier, Wanyama and Foyth unavailable. But will at least get Lamela back, although he probably will start on the bench. Here are the probable starting formations:

Barcelona (4-3-3): Cillessen; Semedo, Lenglet, Vermaelen, Jordi Alba; Vidal, Arthur, Denis Suarez; Munir, Messi, Coutinho.

Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Sissoko, Dier; Son, Alli, Eriksen; Kane.
