Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Semedo; Arthur, Busquets, De Jong; Messi, Suarez, Griezmann

Inter XI: Handanovic, Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar; Candreva, Sensi, Barella, Brozovic, Asamoah, Lautaro Martinez, Alexis Sanchez

Inter, who lead Serie A after winning all six of their domestic games under Antonio Conte, produced a wonderful first half display and took the lead in the second minute through Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez.

Barca had struggled to get going before half-time but looked more like their usual dominant selves on European nights at the Camp Nou after the break and deservedly pulled level in the 58th minute through a superb swivelling volley from Suarez.

The Catalans then caught Inter out on the counterattack to take the lead in the 84th minute, with captain Lionel Messi feeding Suarez who produced a cool low finish to prompt relieved celebrations among the 86,000 fans in the stadium.

The win takes Barca second in Group F with four points after two games, the same as leaders Borussia Dortmund who won 2-0 at Slavia Prague. Inter have one point.
