LIVE : Barcelona vs Inter Milan
Barcelona coach Xavi admitted his team is in a precarious position in the Champions League but said they are out for revenge against Inter Milan on Wednesday.
The Catalans lost 1-0 in Italy last week and only a win at Camp Nou will give them a realistic chance of qualifying for the knock-out phase and avoiding a second successive group stage elimination.
Inter heads into the game three points ahead of Barcelona, with three games remaining, and if it avoids defeat it can lock in a better head-to-head record against the Catalans.
“This is a special match, we did not do our homework well by losing the away games,” Xavi told a press conference Tuesday.
Barcelona lost 2-0 at Group C leader Bayern Munich on September 13 and then could not find a way through a crowded Inter defence at San Siro.
