Victory in their first three matches against PSV Eindhoven, Tottenham Hotspur and Internazionale left Los Cules on nine points before Tuesday’s draw moved them onto the priceless mark of 10.They hold a three-point advantage over their Italian opponents, whilst Tottenham Hotspur’s poor start to the campaign has left the English side unable to topple the Spanish giants due to the fact they still have to play Internazionale.The two remaining matches include a trip to the Netherlands to face PSV before Mauricio Pochettino makes his return to the Catalan region .

Just two minutes after coming off the bench, Malcom netted in the 83rd minute to give Barcelona a late 1-0 lead over Inter at San Siro.

Inter star Mauro Icardi scored a late leveller against his former club to ensure the match ended 1-1, but the draw still ensured Barcelona secured a place in the last 16 with two matches to spare in Group B.

Malcom’s goal will come as a huge boost for the 21-year-old, who has barely seen any first-team action since making a controversial €41 million $48m move from Bordeaux in the summer.Including Tuesday’s match, Malcom has made just four appearances in all competitions so far this season, with only one of those coming from the start.

The other one to advance to the knockout stage will be decided after games between inter Milan and Tottenham hotspour
