Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said Monday that Lionel Messi could play in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Inter Milan, but he would take "no risks" with the superstar attacker as he recovers from a broken arm.

Messi, 31, has not played since breaking a bone in his arm in a win over Sevilla on October 20.

The piece of play from Dembele was so good that Brozovic was forced to do his signature "crocodile" maneuver in the game rather than from a set-piece and some say he's still sliding as we speak.

Lionel Messi was surprisingly named in the squad to face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.

However, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor was not on Ernesto Valverde's 18-man squad when it was released prior to the match.

He was eventually beaten just as it looked like he was going to save Inter from conceding so many chances, Malcom scampering down the right in the 83rd minute before ripping home a shot between two Inter players. Meanwhile, the Italian hosts can book their spot in the Round of 16 with a win over Barcelona and if Tottenham and PSV draw in the other Group B game. We couldn't risk Messi.

Ousmane Dembele sent two Inter Milan players out of the San Siro last night and we're still not sure of their whereabouts.

"Inter are in a phase of continual growth, I think we're doing better than last season even though we have four points less", he added.

"You do not know what can happen and we didn't want to take risks".

After his goal, the Brazilian he gave the impression that he is not ready to quit the Nou Camp just yet. "We talked to him about it and he understood". After six games without a goal, he has now hit six in his last four.
