Kwadwo Asamoah Set to Face FC Barcelona, Messi Back

Inter Milan defender Kwadwo Asamoah is due to play against Spanish giants FC Barcelona in a UEFA Champions League Group stage clash tonight.

The two sides meeting for the second time in under a month after playing the first game of the home and away meetings in Barcelona where the home side overcame Asamoah’s team 2-0.

Despite the loss, many Ghanaians will agree the Kumasi-born star produced a performance that would have made the nation proud and should thus boost his confidence for tonight’s game in front of his home supporters.

Additionally, the 29-year-old looks to be a sure-stater at the San Siro this evening following coach Luciano Spalletti’s decision to rest him for last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Genoa at the same stadium.

The Group B encounter is set to begin at 22:00.
