Three goals in the final ten minutes lead to a crazy finish at the Nou Camp as Barcelona and Inter Milan drew 3-3 to keep Barcelona’s last 16 hopes alive.

After two defeats to Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in their first three games, Barcelona had to avoid defeat tonight to give themselves any hope of progressing from the group stages.

In a first half that they dominated, Barcelona took the lead in the 40th minute when Ousmane Dembélé reached Sergi Roberto’s cross to give them a half time lead.

Just five minutes into a crazy second half, Nicolo Barella took advantage of some poor defending from Gerard Pique to draw the Italian side level.

They then took the lead thirteen minutes later, when Lautaro Martinez brilliantly controlled a long ball and finished into the bottom corner to give Inter the lead.

With Barcelona less than ten minutes away from elimination, Robert Lewandowski drew Barcelona level after Inter failed to clear a cross.

At 2-2, Barcelona looked were safe as things stood. However, the game was far from over. Martinez collected a long ball from goalkeeper Andre Onana, before finding Robin Gosens at the back post to send the Nou Camp into silence as they faced elimination once again.

With six minutes of added time on the clock, Barcelona needed a hero to save their Champions League campaign, and Lewandowski once again stepped up to save Xavi’s side with a towering header from Eric Garcia's cross.

The Polish striker scored his 90th Champions League goal to ensure they live to fight another day.

Barcelona still have it all to do in third place on four points, and host Bayern Munich in a must win game in two weeks time, who have already qualified for the knockout stages while they also need Inter Milan to drop points against Viktoria Plzen.
