Inter Milan 1-1 Barcelona: Late Mauro Icardi strike cancels out Malcom’s opener

Barcelona were made to wait to confirm qualification for the Champions League knockout stages after Mauro Icardi’s late strike handed Inter Milan a 1-1 draw at the San Siro on Tuesday.

Needing a victory to confirm their passage to the last 16 as group winners, Malcom gave Ernesto Valverde’s side the lead three minutes after coming on as a substitute.

But Inter captain Icardi capitalised on some poor defending from the visitors to equalise just three minutes later (86), leaving Group B firmly in the balance following Tottenham’s last-gasp 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven at Wembley.

What’s next?

Inter Milan are back in Serie A action at the weekend, taking on Atalanta at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Sunday (11.30am). In Europe, they face a crucial trip to Wembley to play Tottenham on November 28 (8pm).

Barcelona are also back in league action on Sunday, taking on Real Betis at the Nou Camp at 3.15pm. In the Champions League, they face a trip to PSV on November 28 (8pm).
