Spain, Barcelona
October 01, 2019 at 22:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte said his squad will 'play their cards' against FC Barcelona when they meet in a Champions League fixture on Wednesday. Conte was speaking at a pre-match press conference in Barcelona on Tuesday.

"We come to play our cards with great respect, knowing that we will play against an opponent who's among the candidates to win this year's Champions League," said Conte.

"Our group [in the Champions League] is a beautiful one, an interesting one, and certainly a tough one. We realized this already during our match against Slavia Prague, where we drew on our own stadium," he said.

"In all of us there should be the will to come here and play against Barcelona, to play our cards, in a right way, in a humble way, but knowing that we are working to fix some of our shortcomings, but also knowing that this is a squad which is working to work on its strong sides too," Conte added.

Barcelona will face Inter at the Nou Camp in Barcelona on Wednesday. The kick off is set at 20:00 GMT.
