Inter Milan forward is a doubt against Xavi Hernandez’s Barcelona ahead of UEFA Champions League clash.
The visitors suffered a 2-0 loss in the second round of the Champions League group stage despite probably outplaying Bayern Munich for the entirety of the game at the Allianz Arena.
In light of this, Xavi’s team will be focused on regaining their reputation when they take on Inter Milan in the San Siro on Tuesday.
One of the most important players for one of the Serie A heavyweights may already be absent for the much anticipated match, giving the Catalan giants a significant edge.
Romelu Lukaku might miss the forthcoming match against Barcelona owing to an injury, according to the most recent information provided by Pasquale Guarro.
The Belgian international has played just three league games for the Nerazzurri since his injury-plagued return.

While many questioned how the Chelsea loanee would fare in such a significant match after a miserable season in West London.
But it looks like the spectators at the game won’t get to watch the talented attacker in action.
After Ronald Araujo and Jules Kounde suffered injuries while representing France and Uruguay, respectively, during the international break, this ultimately relieves some of the strain on Barça.
It isn’t a hot take to imply that Eric Garcia and Andreas Christensen might have struggled against a top striker like Lukaku, who is on a quest to dispel his skeptics, despite their promising starts to the 2022–23 season and their success in their new environments, respectively.
Even though the Spanish team now has the advantage, it should be noted that it is never a pleasant sight to see the biggest personalities sit out of such important matches.
