Barcelona 3-3 Inter Milan live result: Barca close to exiting Champions League despite Lewandowski brace in thrilling draw
Barcelona got two late goals from Robert Lewandowski but it was only enough to draw 3-3 with Inter Milan in a thrilling Champions League game.
The result keeps Barcelona three points behind Inter in Group C, facing group stage elimination for the second consecutive season.
The Italian side can clinch a place in the round of 16 with a home win against Viktoria Plzen in their next group match, a result that would knock Barcelona out of the competition.
Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring for the hosts in the 40th minute as the Spanish side enjoyed a 1-0 half-time lead. Things really kicked off in the second half, as Nicolo Barella equalized the game in the 50th minute, benefiting from the help of a misjudgment from Gerard Pique along the way.
Lautaro Martinez gave the visitors their first lead of the night in the 63rd minute, his shot bouncing off both goal posts before finally crossing the line. Inter’s lead would last until the 82nd minute, when Robert Lewandowski scored with a deflected shot.
Just seven minutes later, Robin Gosens put the Italian side back in front, clinically ending a counterattack. Robert Lewandowski scored his second goal of the night in added time in the second half, leveling the score once again, but the draw is unlikely to be enough for Barcelona to eventually advance.
Since last season, Inter have won three consecutive Champions League games for the first time in the club’s history.
Group C table:
- Bayern Munich: 12 points (knockout spot won)
- Inter Milan: 7 points
- Barcelona 4 points
- Viktoria Plzen: 0 pts (eliminated from competition for CL knockout stage)
