Barcelona beat Inter 2-0 on October 24 at Nou Camp in the teams' first meeting of the season. Goals in either half from Rafinha & Jordi Alba settled the tie in favour of the Catalans.

The defeat exposes the Anfield club to the threat of an early elimination in Group C, with Napoli coming from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the night's other game.

Those rumours have contributed to a hard start to life in Spain, which was perhaps behind the tears that followed his goal as he celebrated with his teammates in the corner of the San Siro pitch.

Inter boss Luciano Spalletti praised his side for the reaction to Malcom's goal. Encouragingly, Inter has been solid defensively in recent weeks, keeping a total of seven clean sheets in their last 19 matches. Luis Suarez has made up for Messi's goals domestically - with five in his past two matches - but has yet to score this season in the Champions League.

"We played the best team in the world and they scored a typical Barcelona goal, but we never gave up, we kept fighting", Icardi told Sky Sport Italia.

As for Barcelona, they can all but book their place in the round of sixteen with a victory against Inter on Tuesday evening.

Suarez, who scored a hat trick in last week's drubbing of Real Madrid, completed the comeback three minutes later by arriving at the far post to steer in a cross from Sergi Roberto, striking a fifth goal in two games and a ninth in total to move top of the league's scoring charts.

Messi is recovering from a broken arm suffered last month, and Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has opted to leave the superstar attacker out of the match at the San Siro, sticking with the same starting XI that scraped past Rayo Vallecano 3-2 at the weekend.

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

He has travelled with the squad to Milan without the all-clear from the club's medical team.

Ousmane Dembele equalized with three minutes remaining in the match.
