Barcelona's Lionel Messi not in squad to face Inter Milan

Messi and Umtiti take part in Friday's rondo

Barca lead Group B with nine points from three games heading into Tuesday's fixture in Milan, ahead of Inter (six points), Tottenham (one) and PSV Eindhoven (one).

Messi has missed the 5-1 win over Real Madrid and a 2-0 victory over Inter. The Argentinean attacker has travelled with the squad, despite not being past fit by the medical team.

In today's paper edition of the newspaper Rome-based Corriere dello Sport emphasizes the important role that Nerazzurri captain Mauro Icardi has when Inter host Barcelona in the Champions League.

Does FC Barcelona's flawless UEFA Champions League record represent something more substantive than a hot start?

Mayweather will fight Japanese kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa , who has an unblemished record in 27 professional fights. Nasukawa , called "perhaps the best combat sports prospect [Japan] has ever seen" in the press release for the fight, is 27-0.

Former Inter player Zanetti is not anxious about Icardi being tempted away, and says that they have not had any interest from Real, nor do they have any financial need to sell.

She also spoke about Lionel Messi on the show, insisting that Icardi has a good relationship with his countryman.

"Had it not been for an afternoon where Luis Suarez was not at his best, this would have been out of hand early on". Luis Suarez has stepped up in front of goal, scoring five goals in his last three appearances.

Barca were without a win in four league games and defensive errors looked set to play havoc with their title challenge. Umtiti has returned to training but is still not fully match fit yet, meaning Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet will start at the heart of the defence once again.
