Barcelona qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League despite Mauro Icardi snatching a late 1-1 draw for Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday. "But we're happy because our main goal of qualifying is achieved". The 31-year-old was named among the 22 men who travelled to Milan on Monday morning, but whether he will get some minutes is still unclear considering that there's still some time to go until his prescribed date of recovery.

PSG took the lead in first-half stoppage time when Juan Bernat poked the ball home after he was picked out by Kylian Mbappe. "The one that's left is for us to get first place".

Despite the late setback, Barca again proved their ability to perform without injured captain Lionel Messi, with stand-in skipper Busquets excited to see this improving side link up without their superstar.

"The boys are very disappointed, I'm very disappointed and we have to do better", said Klopp.

"This is a hard group but we saw with Liverpool losing that everything is possible", said PSG's Julian Draxler.

"Leo Messi travels to Milan without medical all-clear", Barcelona said in a message accompanying the revised squad list on their official Twitter account.

Barca, without injured Lionel Messi, were left to lament throwing away three points from a game in which they created more than enough chances to win but couldn't get past the superb Slovenia worldwide in the Inter goal. Over the last three games, Suarez has scored six goals.

President Trump Turned the Midterms Into a Referendum on Himself
This small error, along with the fact that some undecided voters unexpectedly voted for Trump, handed him the electoral college. But, depending on the margin of victory for Democrats in the House, even that is unlikely to be immune to partisan obstruction.

In an early Group A fixture, FC Brugge recorded their first win in the competition with a 4-0 thrashing of French side Monaco.

Semi-finalists in 2017, Monaco are now eliminated.

This result also came on the day the club's Russian billionaire owner Dmitry Rybolovlev was arrested in a corruption investigation.

"I want to play more", he said.

Porto are on the brink of qualification from Group D after a 4-1 win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow.

Group C seem to be the toughest in this season's competition as Liverpool were beaten away to Red Star Belgrade by 2-0 while Napoli and PSG shared the points with a 1-1 scoreline.
