Barcelona secured their first win of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, beating Inter Milan 2-1 at the Nou Camp.
Is Luis Suarez past his best?
It was a tough game for Ernesto Valverde’s side, who went 1-0 down after just two minutes when Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring.
They remained behind at half-time and looked up against it until Luis Suarez equalised in the 58th minute. The Catalonian club then nicked all three points when the Uruguayan netted his second goal of the game with just six minutes left to play.
Despite scoring a match-winning brace, Suarez was not getting all of the plaudits from Barcelona fans on social media after the game.
Instead, many flocked to praise Lionel Messi, who set up the winning goal with a wonderful 40-yard run which saw him beat two players before laying the ball off for his strike partner to finish.
The Argentinian has struggled with injuries so far this term and had only started once all season prior to the game against the Nerazzurri, but he showed he remains their most important player by producing a moment of magic to help the Spanish giants secure victory.
Here’s what some fans were saying about Messi’s part in Suarez’s winning goal on Twitter…
