Inter Milan warmed up for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Barcelona on Wednesday by beating AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro in Serie A.

A stoppage-time winner from Mauro Icardi sealed all three points for the Nerazzurri and will give them plenty of confidence ahead of their trip to the Camp Nou.

However, it wasn’t a perfect evening for Inter, as they also suffered some injury issues during the game.

Midfielder Radja Nainggolan was forced off with an ankle problem after just 30 minutes. Initial reports suggest the Belgian has suffered a sprained ankle.

Ivan Perisic also departed in the second half, and he looked to be limping as he was replaced by Keita Baldé Diao on 70 minutes.

The game looked set to finish goalless until Icardi headed home the winner to send Inter inter third place in the Serie A table.

Like Barcelona they’ve won both of their Champions League games so far and will be hoping to make it through to the knockout stages for the first time since 2012.
