Barcelona faced off against Inter Milan at San Siro earlier tonight as they focused on earning a good result on their travels in the UEFA Champions League. The Catalan outfit made a solid start to the game but ended up conceding the opening goal in the dying embers of the first half when Hakan Çalhanoğlu scored with a clinical strike. Barca were trailing 1-0 at half-time.

Xavi’s men dominated the ball in the second 45 minutes but had very little to show for their efforts. The contest finished with Barca suffering a narrow 1-0 loss away at Milan.

Let’s take a look at how each Barcelona player fared during the clash against Inter Milan.

RB: Sergi Roberto – 6/10

CB: Andreas Christensen – 6.5/10

CB: Eric Garcia – 7/10

The Spanish talent cleared his lines when needed and was very accurate with his passing.
