FULL-TIME, Inter Milan 1-1 Barcelona: What a game! Barça played better and deserved to win, but Inter have a fantastic striker who only needs one chance. In the end, it’s a great performance from the Blaugrana and a spot in the knockout rounds guaranteed. Good result, folks. Good result.
GOAL, Inter Milan 1-1 Barcelona (Icardi 87’): Inter equalize. After a cross from Lautaro Martinez, the ball bounces around in the box and comes to Mauro Icardi who scores a typical poacher’s goal.
GOAL!!!!!! Inter Milan 0-1 Barcelona (Malcom 83’): BARÇA SCORE, AND IT’S A DEBUT GOAL!!! Malcom scores his first Champions League goal with his first touch! Amazing!
60’: Goal disallowed! Barça thought they had scored through Luis Suárez, but Ivan Rakitic couldn’t keep the ball from going out before his assist, and the goal was correctly called off. Suárez was not happy, though.
SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Inter Milan 0-0 Barcelona: COME ON, BOYS! Let’s keep attacking and let’s finish the chances in the second half!
HALFTIME, Inter Milan 0-0 Barcelona: This has been a frustrating first half, but not for the usual reason: Barça aren’t drawing this because they haven’t attacked enough, it’s because they’re not taking their chances. There were a lot of them: Luis Suárez had at least three, Ousmane Dembélé had two, Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic each had one, and Barça have been truly dominant but just couldn’t score.
KICKOFF! Inter Milan 0-0 Barcelona: COME ON, BOYS! Don’t give me a heart attack. Please.

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, no swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
