Barcelona are the first team to book a spot in the knockout round of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

The Spanish champions were held to a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday.

Playing without talisman Lionel Messi, Barca took the lead in the second half through substitute Malcom.

The Brazilian winger curled in from 20 yards to give his side a deserved lead.

Mauro Icardi was however given room to turn and shoot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen late in the game, to level scores.

The point gained could prove vital against group rival, Tottenham Hotspur, who won 2-1 against PSV, when both meet later in the month to fight for the second qualifying spot in the group.
