Barcelona stare at champions league elimination

Barcelona are on the brink of elimination from the champions league after they were held to a three all draw by Inter Milan at Camp nou.

Robert Lewandowski scored twice but was not enough to earn them victory.

Inter were heading for a win with a third goal on the 89th minute only for the former Bayern talisman to head in the equalizer in the 92nd minute and set up a tense last four minutes.

Having been beaten in the San Siro last week, Xavi’s side went into the game knowing that they realistically needed to win to maintain hope of progressing from Group C.

The draw leaves Inter who sit second, behind Bayern Munich who progressed on Wednesday – three points ahead of Barcelona, with both to still play Bayern and Viktoria Plzen.

Barcelona boss Xavi said: “We’re depending on another team to go through. They are our mistakes, we have to improve them. That’s the reality. He added.

With Bayern already through, an Inter Milan home win on Wednesday, 26 October against bottom side Viktoria Plzen will confirm Barca’s elimination.
