Barcelona begin life without Messi as Inter visit Camp Nou

Gennaro Gattuso Inter Milan Serie A

"We are very happy for the match, against a team that was going to make things very hard for us, we played very well". Madrid head into Sunday's league Clasico at Barcelona having taken just one point from a possible 12 in their last four league games.

For a broken arm, the Argentinian for the first time in 11 years, will miss "El Clasico" encounter with real Madrid.

Two more bookmakers estimated the victory of inter in this match 6.25.

Argentine football star Lionel Messi suffered an injury in Barcelona's 4-2 win over Sevilla on Saturday, sending shockwaves across the Camp Nou, with fans anxious the club might struggle while the key playmaker recovers.

He is a great fan of Lionel Messi and he likes to write about Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Liverpool.

"Messi often gets us out of jail in hard games against low blocks and obviously we want him to get better as soon as possible".

"We knew what Rafinha could give us, from the first to last minute he worked extremely hard", Valverde said.

"We came from a run of quite a lot of games without winning and the objective was to win in circumstances that were not at all simple".

A positive result against Inter would set them up nicely for Sunday's clash against Madrid, whose poor form has put the future of coach Julen Lopetegui in doubt.

"Madrid will be even more unsafe", Valverde said on Wednesday. FC Barcelona is located in the city of Barcelona, the Catalan capital, while Real Madrid is a team from Madrid, the capital of Spain, and they are more than 300 miles apart.

"We all had to step up given that everyone, my players, our fans, our adversaries, we all had Messi's absence on our minds", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said.

"The Clasico is played from many points of view: from a tactical point of view, from an emotional one".

"Leo is happy here, he feels comfortable, he's spent his whole life here and we want him to feel comfortable", he added.
