Inter legend and current club vice-president Javier Zanetti has shared his thoughts and feelings ahead of the Champions League match away to Barcelona in a few hours time.
“A game such as this one is always important as it is a match between two teams with great tradition and history,” he explained in an interview with Tutto Mercato Web outside of the hotel where Inter are staying.
“We have made a great start, but there is still a long way to go in the season. Today is a very important match because it will tell us where we are.
“Who is the favourite for the match? Playing at the Camp Nou is always difficult but we have confidence in ourselves.”
He was then asked about Barcelona’s star man Lionel Messi.
“I know him very well and I hope he is in the best condition but I also know that he is a difficult player to face. We know his qualities well.”
