Alexis Sanchez seems more likely to partner Romelu Lukaku tomorrow night at the Nou Camp instead of Lautaro Martinez according to a report from Milan based news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Chilean made his first start for the Nerazzurri at the weekend in the 3-1 win away to Sampdoria, in which he scored before being sent off. As a result of being sent off, he will serve a suspension and will therefore be unable to play any part whatsoever in Sunday’s Derby D’Italia, where Martinez is favourite to start alongside the Belgian.

Inter manager Antonio Conte will make his final decision today as Inter have their final training session before heading to Barcelona.

Inter started their Champions League campaign off with a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Slavia Prague whilst Barcelona were held to a goalless draw against Borussia Dortmund. Group F is therefore wide open and Inter could take a big step toward qualification even at this early stage if they are to be successful over the Catalan side.
