Barcelona through to Champions League last 16 despite Mauro Icardi leveller

Barcelona through to Champions League last 16 despite Mauro Icardi leveller

Cules could be forgiven for imagining the worst when Barcelona's talisman Lionel Messi went down injured against Sevilla. He's done really well and the goal will do him good.

More crucially, key players have delivered while others, less prominent, have stepped up. "We were more ambitious and we dominated the whole game".

"Ronaldo's heart is more Blaugrana than it is Real Madrid, because he has better memories of his time at Barcelona".

Inter were beaten 2-0 in a professional performance from the Catalans where they dominated for large spells.

The 21-year-old scored nearly instantly but Mauro Icardi cancelled it out with a late equaliser in the 1-1 draw.

Mauro Icardi was however given room to turn and shoot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen late in the game, to level scores.

Barcelona have fared well in Messi's absence, winning their last four matches in all competitions and spectacularly beating rivals Real Madrid 5-1 in the first Clasico encounter of the season at Camp Nou - a result that led to the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.

"I have to thank the group for giving me confidence". "We just switched off a bit in the final moments", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde. If the match isn't going in their favour then Barcelona have the ultimate game-changer on the bench to strike fear into the opposition. The Argentine clearly loves playing football and, despite having won it all in his career, he is still trying his utmost best to recover quickly and return to first team action. The quality of the opposition doesn't seem to faze the 21-year-old and this is a kind of game where he could thrive due to the space available if Inter opt to take risks and play high up the pitch.
