By Football Italia staff Sportsmail’s Paul Ricciotti and Francesco Totti discuss what to watch from Sunday’s clash at the Nou Camp.
In the wake of Manchester United’s win over Barcelona, Antonio Conte’s men will go head-to-head with the Premier League leaders.
Conte has won three of his last four matches at the Bernabeu.
“It’s not just the players’ names, but the quality of the opposition that will be a factor, as well,” said Totti.
However, Totti did concede that the game will be interesting.
“[Antonio Conte] is a manager who likes to be in control and knows that his side has to play with the ball at their feet,” he said.
“The fact that United have been a bit tentative so far, with their defensive structure, is a little worrying, but they can certainly get themselves back into it.
This is a test for the players, but a test that can be won or lost.”
Totti also predicted a difficult fixture for the hosts.
They were beaten in the Champions League last season, and have lost all five of their Premier League matches this season.
Barcelona will be hoping that Conte will take a different approach.
With the Spanish side’s new-look squad, “We’ll have a bit more of a presence in the box and they’ll be more compact,” he added.
