Barcelona vs. Inter Milan: Where to Watch UEFA Champions League, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

Barcelona hosts Inter Milan on Wednesday in the second game of Group F with both teams looking for a first win of the season in the Champions League.

The Catalans drew 0-0 in Dortmund in their opening game two weeks ago, while Inter Milan needed a late goal to earn a home draw against Slavia Prague.

Barcelona moved up to fourth in La Liga on the weekend with a 2-0 win over Getafe, the first time this season the five-time European Cup winners have won two consecutive games.

The win came without Lionel Messi, who nursed an injury picked up against Villarreal a few days earlier. The Argentine missed the first six weeks of the campaign with a calf problem and only returned to action in mid-September.

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde, however, has named Messi in the squad for the game against Inter Milan and quelled fears over the Argentine's fitness.

Messi's injury woes have been a major headache for Barcelona, particularly as Antoine Griezmann is still trying to find his feet after his $130 million transfer from Atletico Madrid.

The 2018 World Cup winner has scored three goals in eight games in all competitions but he admitted he is yet to fire on all cylinders.

"It's different," he said in the pre-game press conference. "It's a different type of football, a different position and I knew it was going to be difficult to adjust.

"But I feel like I'm improving every game. Three goals, it's not bad, right? I can do better but I just arrived. I work for the team and if I can score or assist, even better."

Inter Milan has injury issues of its own, with Romelu Lukaku unavailable because of a thigh injury. The Belgian has scored three times in Serie A since joining Inter from Manchester United for $87 million and his absence is a major blow for Antonio Conte.

The former Juventus coach has made a blistering start to his Inter career, with the Nerazzurri top of the Serie A table with six wins in six games.

Conte, who is aiming to become the first Italian coach to win away against Barcelona in the Champions League since 2003, however, insisted there was plenty of room for improvement.

"All our performances this season have shown quality and organisation, but mentality makes the difference in getting out of tricky situations," he told a press conference.

"We must now press the reset button, focus on Barcelona at Camp Nou. We're getting into the right frame of mind, but we sill have to grow a lot. We are newborns in this project."

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Wednesday.

Lionel Messi will be available after recovering from the injury suffered against Villarreal and Ousmane Dembele has also been declared fit. Barcelona, however, will be without full-back Jordi Alba and centre-back Samuel Umtiti.

Inter Milan will be without Romelu Lukaku, who is suffering from a thigh injury.

"Romelu didn't travel with us because he's got a slight problem with his quadriceps," Inter coach Antonio Conte said in his press conference.

"It's a problem he's had for about 10 days now and one that he kept on mentioning, but tests have revealed that it's nothing serious. "We're quite relaxed about it but didn't want to risk him."
