Rafinha scored his first Champions League goal against Inter Milan to help Barcelona to a 2-0 win over the Serie A side on Wednesday.

The Brazilian’s goal also means Barcelona set a new record in the competition. The club now have more unique goalscorers than any other club in the competition.

Rafinha was a bit of a surprise inclusion in the starting XI, as the man chosen to replace Lionel Messi. However, he made the difference between the two sides at the Camp Nou, before Jordi Alba sealed the win late on with Barcelona’s second.

It’s an important win for Barcelona, who move three points clear at the top of Group B and are now red-hot favourites to go through as group winners.
