Barcelona draw 1-1 with Inter to advance in Champions League

IANS  |  Milan (Italy) 

are assured of a berth in knockout stage after drawing 1-1 with Milan.

With 10 points from 4 matches, Barça lead Group B by 3 points over Inter, who in turn have an advantage of 3 points on Tottenham Hotspur, reports news.

Barça superstar Lionel Messi, still recovering from an injury, watched from the stands at the San Siro - where the last won in 1959 - as his teammates dominated possession and took the lead only to concede an equalizer with three minutes left.

Even without Messi, kept the hosts corralled in their own end for most of the night and it took a heroic performance by goalkeeper to prevent a rout on Tuesday night.

The score was 0-0 in the 81st minute when replaced Ousmane Dembele on the front line with Malcom and the young Brazilian needed just two minutes to break the deadlock, converting a pass from countryman

Barça's joy turned out to be short-lived, as Inter's won the race to a dead ball in the area and beat keeper ter Stegen to bring the hosts level.
