Barcelona moved one step ahead of the Champions League held on 6th November although they had to settle for a draw of 1-1 against Inter Milan. Mauro Icardi did delay, but scored a great record of Barcelona in this season’s competition. As far as the Group B match is concerned, Harry Kane did score 2 times to support Tottenham Hotspur so as to defeat PSV Eindhoven. It kept their hope of going into the competition. In Group A, the outstanding run of Borussia Dortmund came to a halt as Atletico Madrid showed a 2-0 win.
The former Barca player Icardi beautifully smashed the ball in the net during the 87th minute soon after Malcolm made his appearance to snatch a winner for Barco. He scored his first goal post coming off the bench for this club. Barca did not have Lionel Messi although they played well with high intensity, but lacked in terms of quality until the last 10 minutes at San Siro. Inter scored 2nd on 7 and Tottenham Hotspur came 3rd on 4. PSV Eindhoven was at the bottom and out of the match with one.
Barca was beaten by Jose Mourinho by 3-1 in the semi-finals in the year 2010 and did not win in any of the visits to Italy since then. However, they did cope well and started to dominate. Inter played with a lot of courage and met the expectations of the crowd this time. It earned a record amount for tickets to the match which was indeed a proud moment.
