BARCELONA face Inter Milan in the Champions League tonight - but who will Ernesto Valverde choose to start the game? I am 100 percent focused on helping my team for tomorrow, nothing more.

"They trust in me, and I trust even more in them", he said.

"It's a great game for us in this moment because we have no choice but to stand up", Toni Kroos said.

"Real Madrid remain a top team, either with or without Cristiano". "It is a shame that Messi is not available for Barca, but they still have the players to win the game". You try to play the same as you normally do in a Clasico, but you can't. We must keep working and improve on the pitch so that we can be there, close to [Barcelona and Real Madrid].

With Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen injured, Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique will again play in central defence for Barca and will have to be wary of Inter striker Mauro Icardi, who has four goals in Serie A this season and is being touted as a possible future signing for Real Madrid. "We focus on the rival, of course, but on what they can do".

"In the second half, we did better and forced Barcelona to misplace passes, but could've done more to make the most of the situation by finishing off the chances". For a broken arm, the Argentinian for the first time in 11 years, will miss "El Clasico" encounter with real Madrid.

"We don't focus too much on [stories that Madrid are in crisis]", Valverde said.

"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 have a certain style, then Messi gives us a touch of brilliance that is extraordinary.

There were disgruntled whistles at full-time on Tuesday, the home fans deflated after watching a team that featured UEFA's best goalkeeper, defender and player hang on for a 2-1 victory over Viktoria Plzen. The emotional and mental side are also important, we must have the right attitude, and show maximum respect. "We know what's at stake and we have to focus on playing our game".
