Mauro Icardi's late equaliser denied Barca a win in Italy but a draw was enough to seal their progression to the knockout stages with two games to spare.

"The latest results reinforce that and this will be a good opportunity to see if we really can play on a par with Barcelona, who represent the highest level of difficulty in football".

"We are very pleased for Malcom", he told Movistar.

Porto are on the brink of qualification from Group D after a 4-1 win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow. "So I leave Milan happy".

Barca lead Group B with nine points from three games heading into Tuesday's fixture in Milan, ahead of Inter (six points), Tottenham (one) and PSV Eindhoven (one).

But his saves kept the hosts in the game right until the end, and Icardi took the one chance he had to save a point. "Making my debut in the Champions League and scoring will stay in my memory forever - I will celebrate it with my family tonight".

"Let's hope the same thing happens that happened at San Siro", Icardi added with a laugh.

Barca's captain and all-time top scorer was initially ruled out for approximately three weeks after sustaining the injury against Sevilla on October 20, although he returned to training last week.

However, Messi wasn't even on the bench at San Siro.

'Inter is a team with a lot of history, a lot of power and with passionate supporters who make a real impact, as we saw tonight, ' he said.

"I don't know what route Inter or us will have after tonight, but of course they are a team to consider, they have the DNA of never giving in and they will take that spirit into the Tottenham match". On Sunday, Barcelona included the Argentine star in its squad for the midweek Champions League clash at Inter Milan.

Barcelona dominated and had 65 percent of the possession, with 27 shots to Inter's 10. "He is not getting the minutes he wants but, in training, he works like the rest of the players".

But Inter substitute Lautaro Martinez also had an immediate impact as his cross was deflected into the path of Icardi, who fired in his third goal in four matches in the competition.

"Such an important goal, scores virtually straight after coming on".
