Inter boss Luciano Spalletti reckons his team would get thrashed if they prepared for their matches in the same way that Barcelona do.

Spalletti spoke about what he had learnt from the Spanish champions after facing them at the Camp Nou last month.

“At the Camp Nou, I saw them come out to warm up ten minutes before the game. We had even asked if they had a gym inside [the stadium] that we could start warming up in, but no.

”Not only that, but my players have told me that, on the afternoon of the game, the Barça guys had gone to pick up their kids from school and had then got in their cars to go to the stadium. If we prepared for games like that, we’d lose 18-0.”

Inter will be hoping for a good result when they meet Barcelona again on Tuesday. The Italian side go into the game second in Group B. They can confirm their qualification for the next round if they win and Spurs and PSV draw in the other game in the group.
