Luis Suarez almost scored what would have been a marvellous goal after controlling a high ball with his chest but sent his attempted chip inches wide of the top corner of the goal.

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

The first half saw Barca have multiple chances through Luis Suarez but the Uruguayan striker failed to really test Samir Handanovic.

Barcelona remained top of the group, three points ahead of Inter and six ahead of Tottenham which beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1.

"It's a good point", Icardi said. "It depends on training", Valverde told a news conference.

The Slovenia worldwide made his best save just before the hour mark when he charged out to block Ivan Rakitic's shot as the Croatian bore down on goal.

The Frenchman started in his side's 1-1 draw with Inter, a result that sealed Barcelona's qualification to the last 16 - and he produced a glorious fake shot that completely fooled both Matias Vecino and Marcelo Brozovic. "We wanted him to train with the team but training isn't the same as playing", Valverde said of the Argentine talisman. With what should be a fairly comfortable match at home to Real Betis this Sunday, it will be interesting to see whether Valverde finally gives Malcom a chance from the start.

He also expressed that "I think it's better if he's there".

"The boys didn't let up and the fact that Icardi went straight to get the ball after scoring the equaliser shows the character and mentality of this team".

Inter are expected to break the Italian record for match day revenue against Barcelona tonight.
