Barcelona missed the service of Lionel Messi who is recuperating from injury, but it was a nice win for them as they stay top of the Spanish La Lagi with 24 points. But wins, in any form, can not be overlooked. I want to play more. Luis Suarez has stepped up in front of goal, scoring five goals in his last three appearances. After six games without a goal, he has now hit six in his last four. "Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible". "We'll know more after training", added the Inter coach.

Racing onto Rakitic's pass and teeing up Suarez to tap in the opener at Vallecas was also Jordi Alba, who has been arguably Barca's best player this season.

Finally, Suarez scored his second and Barcelona's victor in the dying seconds of the match to rescue the full three points for the Catalan giants.

"We are aware that Inter is a healthy club so that we do not have to sell and continue to respect [Financial] Fair Play".

"Leo's at the point where he might be available, but we have to wait until after the training session [on Monday to decide]", Valverde said in a news conference. "He is generous with his effort and today he was very good".

"When I left Barcelona and went to Bayern Munich and Manchester City I never asked Messi to come here", said Guardiola ahead of City's game against Southampton on Sunday.

A draw against Inter would guarantee the Spaniards qualification to the last 16 while victory would secure top spot, with two games still to spare.

Barca have done well without Messi.
