Inter vs Barcelona – Highlights





44' GOAL!! LUKAKU HAULS INTER LEVEL!! Martinez works really hard to hold the ball up under pressure with his back to goal and wait for support. It eventually arrives in the form of Lukaku, who thumps a low, first-time effort into the bottom corner and past Neto with the aid of a deflection! It's 1-1!

23' GOAL!! BARCELONA TAKE THE LEAD!! This wasn't in the script for Inter! Barcelona's much-changed side go ahead as Vidal makes a run into the box and is found sharply into his feet. The midfielder's first touch acts as a cushioned pass for Perez to his right, and the youngster slots a low, left-footed effort under Handanovic and into the back of the net on his Champions League debut! It's 1-0 to Barcelona!




 
21' Martinez's work-rate is causing Barcelona's three centre-backs all sorts of issues as he continuously presses and harries them. He's looked very lively so far. 
 
19' SAVE! Inter break into space and the ball is fizzed into Lukaku just outside the box. He helps it on for Biraghi, storming into the area from left wing-back, to thump at goal first-time, but Neto beats it away! Biraghi caught that well. 
 
18' Barcelona's wide centre-backs are being given license to roam forward if attacks progress down their flank, allowing the wing-backs greater attacking freedom. 
 
16' Inter beginning to pile pressure on Barcelona but the visitors' back-line has, thus far, stood firm as Todibo makes a clean tackle on Martinez inside the box as the striker tried to wriggle into space and shoot. 
 
14' The intial corner is cleared and Vecino chests down on the edge of the box before trying his luck, but he drags it wide of the target and Lukaku just can't reach it in time to divert it goalwards. 
 
13' Martinez works hard to pressure Todibo in the box and wins a corner for his efforts. Inter certainly have a height advantage on Barcelona from set-pieces. 
 
11' Barcelona play some neat exchanges in midfield and release Wague down the right. He bursts forward and drifts infield, before taking on a speculative shot from distance that is deflected and causes no problems in the end. 
 
10' BLOCK! Alena gives the ball away in midfield and Inter break with numbers. Vecino feeds Lukaku to his right and he storms to the edge of the six-yard box before cutting past the sliding challenge of Umtiti and onto his stronger left foot. However, he gets it caught between his feet and allows Lenglet to come across and make a crucial block from the eventual shot! 
 
9' SAVE! Perez sprints onto a ball down the left and gets there ahead of Godin and De Vrij before firing a snap-shot across goal that Handanovic can only palm aside! However, Skriniar is there to pick up the pieces and ushers it away from Griezmann! 
 
7' NO GOAL! Lukaku thinks he's thumped in the opening goal of the game as he is played down the left by Godin before smashing a shot past Neto, but the flag is correctly up for offside! 
 
5' OVER! Inter craft a chance clinically as they move the ball vertically at pace. Lukaku drops off the front line, dragging defenders out of position before playing it to the onrushing Valero who charges into space. The midfielder finds D'Ambrosio to his right, but the right wing-back blazes over from just inside the box! 
 
3' Barcelona are just keeping possession at the moment as they settle into the game. It's a new shape for them, with three centre-halves and two up front as they try to mirror Inter's system. 
 
1' Inter nearly break away immediately as Martinez steals the ball before driving at the back line, but the striker fails to play the ball through for Lukaku to his left, instead seeing a shot charged down. 
 
1' We're under way at San Siro!
