Barcelona: Lionel Messi should only be used as a substitute against internazionale

Barcelona’s predicted lineup vs Inter: All out to seal knockout qualification

Liverpool travel to the French capital in their next game.

Ernesto Valverde has the option to start Lionel Messi in a game which could guarantee top place in the group if they win, so it's likely to be a tempting proposition. This was also goal number three in four games for ICARDI in the Champions League, having previously been on the mark against Tottenham and PSV.

The Argentine suffered an arm fracture in a La Liga match against Sevilla at the back end of last month and had not recovered sufficiently to play against Inter. But wins, in any form, can not be overlooked. However, Icardi was unable to score against Barcelona when the two teams played in Spain.

As the video shows, Messi has scored goals against AC Milan, Roma, Juventus but he has not scored against Inter Milan in three different occasions and given his injury and well-being, it is highly unlikely that Messi would make a fourth appearance against Inter and ultimately break the deadlock.


"We were careful in training, but we knew that today's match would be like how it was with the intensity that there was". 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.

Racing onto Rakitic's pass and teeing up Suarez to tap in the opener at Vallecas was also Jordi Alba, who has been arguably Barca's best player this season.

Mauricio Pochettino's team were starting to get desperate when skipper Kane equalised with 12 minutes left, and he headed home in the 89th minute with the help of two deflections as Spurs got their first win of the campaign.

"I'm going to do everything I can to get selected, as I've always done ever since I made my debut with the national team", Alba said. "Under the new coach I'm not being picked but I'm working on it".
