For all their off-pitch issues, Barcelona have only lost one game so far this season. They remain unbeaten in La Liga, level on points at the top with old rivals Real Madrid, with that one defeat coming in their previous Champions League tie in Munich last month, when Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sané both scored within four minutes of each other for Bayern. Can they keep the pressure on the German side with a win here?

Xavi has made five changes to the side that won away at Mallorca on Saturday, with García, Alonso, Roberto, Pedri and Raphina in for Piqué, Balde, Alba, Kessié and Fati. 

Inter have an identical record in the Champions League so far this season – a win and a loss – but Tuesday night's hosts find themselves down in ninth place in Serie A. The Nerazzurri lost 2-1 to Roma on Saturday, a game opposition boss Jose Mourinho had to watch from a bus in the car park due to a touchline ban, leaving them with four wins and four defeats from their opening eight games. Which Inter will turn up tonight?

There are also five changes to the Inter side to face Barca tonight, with Onana, de Vrij, Darmian, Mkhitaryan and Correa in for Handanović, Acerbi, Dumfries, Asllani and Džeko.     

This game has all the ingredients for a goal fest, so follow our guide to get an Inter vs Barcelona live stream and watch the Champions League online from anywhere.

How to watch Inter vs Barcelona from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Inter vs Barcelona in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to watch Champions League football like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also really easy to use.
