Alexis Sanchez has told his Inter Milan team-mates they can’t afford to miss any clear chances if they are to beat Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Antonio Conte’s side are at the Camp Nou for their second group match, and the fixture will see Alexis return to the club where he spent three years.

The Chilean knows what to expect from his former team and is expecting a tough night back at the Camp Nou.

“At home they are very strong, They have the confidence to play there. If we have one chance or two chances, we cannot waste them,” he said.

“I played with United there and we wasted three or four clear chances. Then they have one or two, they get in, and you’re 3-0 down.

“If you want to beat Barcelona, you can’t miss any clear chances.”

Alexis joined Inter on loan in August after a miserable spell at Manchester United. He made his full debut on Saturday, scoring and then getting sent off in a 3-1 win over Sampdoria.
