ANKARA (AA) - Barcelona are set to take on Italy's Inter Milan in a critical Wednesday UEFA Champions League group match, a must-win if the Spanish team are to keep their last 16 hopes alive.

Group C runners-up Inter have 6 points before the start of the fourth matches in the Champions League.

A victory at Camp Nou Stadium would send Inter to the next round with two matches to spare.

Third-place Barcelona took three points after a 5-1 win over Czech side Viktoria Plzen at Camp Nou. The Spanish side then lost two games against Bayern Munich in Germany 2-0, and Inter 1-0 in Italy.

The German powerhouse are going flawlessly, racking up nine points in three wins.
