Lionel Messi in Barcelona's squad to play Inter Milan in Champions League

Lionel Messi in Barcelona's squad to play Inter Milan in Champions League

Does FC Barcelona's flawless UEFA Champions League record represent something more substantive than a hot start? But Inter has made a habit of scoring late goals and did so again as Mauro Icardi leveled in the 87th.

Behind the backline, Marc-Andre ter Stegen is an automatic selection to man the goal. Finally, Suarez scored his second and Barcelona's victor in the dying seconds of the match to rescue the full three points for the Catalan giants. "Unfortunately, we just ran out of time here".

Belgium midfielder Radja Nainggolan could return after missing the first leg with an ankle injury after coming on to score in a 5-0 win over Genoa at the weekend.

"The goal was fortunate; it fell kindly for me and I was able to turn", he added.

Lionel Messi is one of the greatest footballers to grace the game of football if not the best. "He always gets a goal or an assist". While Inter will still fancy their chances of qualifying for the last 16 even with another defeat, a result against the Spanish champions would all be ensure Spurs' exit.

Spalletti's side travel to Wembley to meet the Premier League club in their next group clash later this month, and Vecino doesn't believe they can go to London in search of a draw. "The message from this match is that we want to qualify from the group, we wanted to take points from this match knowing that now we have two hard matches". "They will likely play with the intention of having the ball and following their gameplan".

Rayo winger Alvaro Garcia sent the raucous home fans into delirium early in the second half by stabbing his side in front on the rebound after striker Raul de Thomas had struck the post with a diving header.

"I don't know what route Inter or us will have after tonight, but of course they are a team to consider, they have the DNA of never giving in and they will take that spirit into the Tottenham match". We didn't win but we qualified.
