UEFA Champions League: FC Barcelona vs. Inter Milan Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Barcelona vs. Inter Milan Live Stream: Reigning European champions FC Barcelona meet FC Internazionale Milano tonight at the San Siro in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal. And yes, the Blaugrana’s top-flight players were forced to undertake a two-day, 450-mile road trip to northern Italy with an overnight stay in Cannes due to the the volcanic ash cloud saga across Europe.
I’m really excited about this match. These teams have already met twice in this season’s tournament, in the group stages last year. They played out a goalless draw in Inter Milan, before Barca won 2-0 at Camp Nou. Of course the Catalans are favored to win the title for a second straight term, but you can’t underestimate the stars of the Nerazzurri.
Jose Mourinho’s side progressed to the semifinals following a comfortable 2-0 aggregate victory over CSKA Moscow. The last time Inter reached the last four of the competition was back in the 2002/03 season – they were eventually knocked out by AC Milan. Barca, on the other hand, have reached the semifinals four times in the last five seasons, winning in 2006 and 2009.
Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has fully recovered from his injury and is ready to face the Italians this evening. For Barca fans, the 28-year-old from Sweden is the complete attacker, although it seems he has still not done enough to convince his critics.
The match kicks-off at 20:45 CET (2:45 p.m. ET).
UPDATE: Mourinho’s Inter Milan came from a goal behind to secure a 3-1 victory in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Barca.
