Livescore from Champions League Group B fixture

Messi and Umtiti take part in Friday's rondo

Although Barca were pegged back by Mauro Icardi's equaliser, Busquets was pleased for the club's newest star.

The Argentine superstar made a surprise return to training last Wednesday, despite initially being ruled out for three weeks when he suffered the injury against Sevilla on Oct.20.

"We've always said we can play against anyone, and that still holds true".

Messi is recovering from a broken arm suffered last month, and Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has opted to leave the superstar attacker out of the match at the San Siro, sticking with the same starting XI that scraped past Rayo Vallecano 3-2 at the weekend.

Lionel Messi was still missing for Barcelona at the San Siro, and it was substitute Malcom who came off the bench to give the Spanish champions a late lead.

Porto are on the brink of qualification from Group D after a 4-1 win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow. This was also goal number three in four games for ICARDI in the Champions League, having previously been on the mark against Tottenham and PSV.

"It was a decision shared by the team", Valverde said.

"We were careful in training, but we knew that today's match would be like how it was". It was a top match and very intense, with lots of tackles.

Barcelona travel to face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday night. "What we will not do is take any risks".

The Uruguay forward went close on a number of occasions, and nearly gave Barcelona an early lead with an audacious flick that flew narrowly over the bar.

However, Handanovic was equal to everything the Catalan club threw at him until Valverde brought Malcom on with nine minutes remaining. I want to play more.

Icardi has missed three Serie A games already this season, whereas Ronaldo has played in all of Juventus' Serie A fixtures.

"I think the goal was deserved because of how the team reacted after Barcelona's goal", Inter coach Luciano Spalletti said.

"We were fearless and we performed in line with what the crowd wanted".
