PLAYER RATINGS | Barcelona 3-3 Inter

Despite leading at half-time, Barcelona needed late heroics from Robert Lewandowski to keep their knockout hopes alive, in a frenetic 3-3 draw at home against Inter.

Marc-André Ter Stegen: 5 – Could have done better with a couple of goals, but made some sensational saves at crucial moments.

Sergi Roberto: 6 – Assisted Dembélé’s opener, but struggled defensively as Barça lost control in the second half.

Eric García: 4 – A very good first half was negated by a very poor second 45 as he struggled to deal with Lautaro Martínez. Terrible defending on Inter’s second. Strong on the ball, however, assisting Lewandowski’s second.

Gerard Piqué: 3 – Way behind the pace and intensity of the game.

Marcos Alonso: 4 – Failed to track Dumfries who found space repeatedly behind him. Inconsistent with his offensive deliveries.

Sergio Busquets: 4: Lost possession cheaply, leading to Inter’s second. Slow to react on multiple occasions.

Gavi: 6 – A high-intensity performance, making some particularly impressive defensive interventions.

Pedri: 7 – Another classy display, ticking all the boxes technically and aiding the Barcelona buildup.

Raphinha: 6 – Mostly inconsistent final product, but his precise pass to an overlapping Sergi Roberto opened up the scope for Barça’s first goal.

Robert Lewandowski: 8 – Had a difficult time in the first half. Drifted out wide multiple times in a dynamic second-half performance that was capped off by a bullet header to complete his brace.

Ousmane Dembélé: 6 – Was alert to sneak in the opener. The rest of his night was a lot of endeavour with very little end product.

SUBSTITUTES:

Frenkie de Jong: 7 – Added a significant boost to Barça’s buildup with his driving runs from deep.

Ansu Fati: 5

Alejandro Balde: 6 – Added more width and pace to the Barcelona left flank, delivering the cross towards Lewandowski that led to his first goal.

Franck Kessié: 5

Ferran Torres: 5
