Lionel Messi put on a masterclass at Wembley a number of weeks ago while Inter struck late at the San Siro to beat Tottenham in Milan.
Thos two disappointing results were followed up with a 2-2 draw away to PSV where they finished the game with 10-men.

GROUP B VERDICT – Barcelona are sailing through but Tottenham could go out early… the state of play in the Champions League group stages
JOE BERNSTEIN: Barcelona made light of missing Lionel Messi in beating Inter Milan last time out though the Argentine may return for Tuesday’s return in the San Siro. A win would put the Catalans into the last 16 and Luis Suarez is bang in form after a Clasico hat-trick.
Spurs cursed a late PSV equaliser in Eindhoven but if they beat the Dutchmen at Wembley, they are back in the game providing Inter don’t beat Barca.
If results go to form this week, the Spurs-Inter clash on November 28 looks key to deciding who also qualifies.

Nobody in Tottenham’s ranks needs telling how important the meeting with PSV Eindhoven at Wembley is.
With just a single point from the opening three group matches, Mauricio Pochettino’s side simply have to take three points at home to the Dutch side to keep alive their fading hopes of reaching the knockout stages.
Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier showed no signs of nerves when they arrived while Harry Kane and Erik Lamela know they will have to shoulder much of the responsibility in attacking areas.
While Group B rivals Barcelona and Inter Milan go head-to-head at the San Siro, Tottenham can merely focus on themselves. Must do better than their last game at Wembley… a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.
