Barcelona Defender Maxwell Wary Of Inter Threat

Barcelona full-back Maxwell is relishing the upcoming Champions League visit of Italian giants Inter to the Camp Nou and has urged his team-mates to be at the top of their game, if they are to beat his former side.

Maxwell left the Beneamata over the summer and is expected to line up against Jose Mourinho’s men next Tuesday due to Eric Abidal’s injury lay-off.

“Inter showed their strength in the first leg and will travel to Barcelona to win,” Maxwell explained to the Corriere dello Sport.

“They have balance on the field of play and have brought in good players who are performing well.

“It will be a beautiful and difficult match for us. We all know it won’t be a walk in the park.

“It will take a great performance on our part to defeat Inter in a crucial encounter for us.”

Inter lead the way in Group F with six points to their name after the opening four rounds of games, while Barca sit one point behind along with Russian outfit Rubin Kazan.
