Barcelona in Champions League

Barcelona in Champions League

Inter Milan will host Barcelona on Tuesday night knowing they are both overwhelming favourites to qualify from Group B. With group rivals Tottenham nearly out of contention with just one point so far against their name, Inter (six points) and Barca (nine) are odds-on to reach the Champions League knockout stages at Spurs' expense.

Instead, the more diligent Rafinha was named in the starting line-up at home to Inter last month and the Brazilian justified Ernesto Valverde's faith by scoring the opener against the same club he played for on loan only five months ago.

Tottenham remain in the hunt, however, after Kane's late brace secured a 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven. We will go there to win. It was a top match and very intense, with lots of tackles.

"They have earned many points in the last moments of matches". They passed the ball around really well.

Barcelona could have won Group B with a victory at San Siro but a combination of wayward finishing and fine saves by Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic means it will have to wait until the final two group matches.

Mauro ICARDI scored for Inter in their 1-1 draw against FC Barcelona in the Champions league.

Barca were without a win in four league games and defensive errors looked set to play havoc with their title challenge.

Hulk Hogan set for controversial WWE return
That 10-year deal, which is part of the Saudis' "Vision 2030" project, reportedly will net the WWE more than $400 million. Hulk Hogan's return to the WWE was going to be controversial no matter what, but this takes things to another level.

Behind the backline, Marc-Andre ter Stegen is an automatic selection to man the goal.

Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets and Arthur are expected to make up the midfield.

Upfront, Luis Suarez is another player who has stepped up in Messi's absence, and should be focal point of the Barcelona attack.

In team news, much of the buildup has been dominated by the return for Leo Messi to the side.

The Argentinean wizard had not received the medical all-clear before travelling to Milan.

"We managed to get a point in the last few minutes and now our last two group matches will be key".

Substitute Dembele got Barca out of trouble with a perfectly struck half-volley in the 87th minute after a knockdown by Pique.
