Watch: Ingenious Defending Denies Luis Suárez But Barcelona Get The Job Done

Barcelona took on Inter Milan without Lionel Messi tonight as the Argentinian continues to recover from an arm injury he picked up last week. However, in his absence Luis Suárez turned magical creator to assist a splendid goal as they claimed a 2-0 victory.

Messi's absence opened the door for Rafinha, who has seen little game-time as of late. Yet the Brazilian was at hand to score Barcelona's first goal.

The Camp Nou roared the home side on in search of a second, but there were repeatedly denied by a well-drilled and dogged Inter Milan. Suarez did look set to add a second when his freekick flew under the wall and towards a flatfooted Samir Handanović, only to be denied by a spectacular Brozovic intervention.

In the end, Jordi Alba was at hand to secure the victory as the full-back finally got his reward for persistently darting forward. Leo Messi cut a delighted figure in the stands.

 

Both sides will have been buoyed by Tottenham's 2-2 draw against PSV earlier in the day which means the Premier League club hold just one point after three games in Group B.
