Champions League: Barcelona Through to Knockouts Despite Draw with Inter Milan

Barcelona advanced to the knockout stage of the Champions League on Tuesday despite having to settle for a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan as Mauro Icardi scored late to snap Barcelona’s perfect record in the competition this season.
In the other match of Group B, Harry Kane scored twice to help Tottenham Hotspur beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 and keep their hopes in the competition alive.
In Group A, Borussia’s Dortmund unbeaten run this season came to an end as Atletico Madrid brought up a comfortable 2-0 win while Thierry Henry’s problems at AS Monaco extended as Club Brugge crushed them 4-0.
Former Barca youth player Icardi swivelled to smash the ball into the net in the 87th minute not long after Brazilian Malcom appeared to have snatched a late winner for Barca by scoring his first goal for the club moments after coming off the bench.
Barca were still without talismanic figure Lionel Messi through injury but were the better side for most of a game that was high on intensity but lacking in quality until an electrifying final 10 minutes at a rocking San Siro.
