Barcelona is prepared to avenge their 1-0 defeat against Inter Milan on Wednesday when the two power teams clash in the Champions League.

Barcelona would have their sight set on the clash against Real Madrid, a defeat in La Liga would leave compound their woes and they might have a huge task to catch up against Real Madrid and a defeat against Inter Milan would leave them in a delicate situation in the Champions League.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez would need to be up their tactical as he approaches these two games as they could make or mar his season at this early point.

Xavi could rest Ousmane Dembele and play Ferran Torres, the Frenchman could be rested for the clash against Inter Milan and field him against Real Madrid in the El-Clasico on Sunday, though he was rested against Celta Vigo with the aim to play him against Inter Milan on Wednesday.

Another aspect of the game Xavi should look at is handing Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets a starting role in the midfield.

De Jong can offer the necessary fluid the team need to switch from the midfield to the attack and ensure the ball circulates well and help in retaining possession always in the midfield.

Eric Garcia should be given the chance to prove himself again and games like this is the best time to distribute game time among players.

Garcia has put in underwhelming performances against top-rank opponents, he would play alongside a veteran like Gerard Pique in the heart of the defence.
