Inter Milan had a genius way to defend Luis Suarez's close-range free-kick

Luis Suarez vs Inter Milan

Barcelona are fully in control of Champions League group B.

The Blaugrana have won their first three matches and will need just one more victory to seal passage to the last-16.

They blew PSV away 4-0, humbled Tottenham in their own backyard 4-2 and saw off Inter Milan 2-0 at the Nou Camp without the injured Lionel Messi.

Rafinha, the replacement for Messi in the starting lineup, scored the opening goal of the game after excellent work from Luis Suarez.

Jordi Alba added a second late in the second-half to seal the victory.

Suarez was somewhere near his best against the Serie A side, tormenting Miranda and Milan Skriniar throughout.

However, the one side of the game that the former Liverpool man struggled with throughout was his free-kicks.

Suarez and Philippe Coutinho took turns taking them in Messi's absence, but neither of them had any luck.

And it seems Inter were more than prepared for one of Suarez's close-range efforts, as they produced a genius piece of defending.

Suarez wins a free-kick vs Inter

At the very last minute, Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic decided to lay down behind the wall and Suarez's effort appeared to strike him.

You can watch the bizarre incident below. No wonder football fans loved it, though.


We've seen Anthony Knockaert kneel behind the wall to block a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick, but Inter really took it to another level.

Brozovic is quite lucky none of his teammates trod on him and it's unlikely to be a defensive trend that catches on.

Inter will now be hoping they can boost their chances of making the last-16 when they host Barcelona in two weeks time.

A win or a draw against the Blaugrana at the San Siro would pretty much condemn both Spurs and PSV to elimination.
