Antonio Conte confirmed that Romelu Lukaku will not be in the visit of Inter Milan to the Camp Nou. His absence can be an advantage for Barça, although it could also be dangerous
FC Barcelona and Inter of Milan ultiman the details for his clash of Champions, and both have news from the infirmary. The Catalans already know that Samuel Umtiti, Jordi Alba and Ansu Fati are not available by injury, whereas Leo Messi and Ousmane Dembélé have recovered to time to go in in the announcement of Ernesto Valverde. Antonio Conte, instead, has an alone but important absence.
Some annoyances in the cuádriceps have left out of fight to Romelu Lukaku, that will not appear in the second day of the phase of groups. The espigado leading Belgian could not be determinant for his in the commitment in front of the Slavia of Prague in Giuseppe Meazza -finished with a tie to a goal-, and will have to conform with seeing by television another decisive meeting for the future of his team.
"It is not Lukaku in the list because had a small problem in the cuádriceps that affected him from does some days. We have done him proofs, but as they continued the annoyances, have decided to not to risk us. It did ten days that suffered are annoyances. Has the cuádriceps tired", recognised the preparador 'nerazzurri' in the previous press conference to the party, in which it did not want to hint of his intentions.
Although the one of Lecce played to the distraction when they asked after him Alexis Sánchez, could bet by the Chilean and Lautaro Martínez in the tip of attack, with an alignment that would lose finish and physical power but would win in mobility, desborde and speed. The technician ensured that it has to think in his alternatives before taking a decision, but recalcó that his will not throw in fault the character, intensity and atrevimiento that has characterised them in the first stretch of the campaign.
For the Barça could be an advantage that his rival do not have a 'killer' as the one of Amberes, although it could prejudice him that there are two attackers with a profile that results him more uncomfortable. Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet have turned into experts in braking to arietes of his same size and with which can go in in a battle of height, although by his qualities, have suffered more when they have had in front to footballers faster that have contested a more open war.
The Barça has spare team to win to the Inter
In spite of that this Inter little has to see with the one of the past year, the Barça has spare team to face up him, and already showed in the last phase of groups that is able to give the size even when it has important drops. With bullets like Messi and Dembélé in the recámara and the support of an imponente Camp Nou, the Barcelona pretend to tie up a victory that would suppose an important step of face to the classification for the eighth of final.
