Clash of the Titans: Inter Milan battles Barcelona in the first semifinal of the Champions League

They meet for the third time this Champions League season, at it will be a tough game just like the previous ones. Barcelona was forced to travel to Italy by bus, but that is no excuse to fail at this point. Guardiola plans to use his most lethal footballers against Mourinho's side.

Inter is having some troubles at the domestic league - they just lost the pole position to AS Rome - but Wesley Sneijder, Samuel Eto'o and Diego Milito are too dangerous, and Guardiola is aware of this.

One of the most atractive facts of this game is that strikers from both sides will face their former teams: Samuel Eto'o spend many seasons at Barcelona, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the frontman of Inter for many years. All these ingredients make of this the most expected games in years.
