FC Barcelona captain and newly crowned Ballon d'Or winner, Lionel Messi has been rested for tonight's UEFA Champions League clash against Inter for their final Group F clash.

Barcelona sits pretty at the top of Group F, the same can’t be said for their opponents, Inter.

The leaders of Serie A could fail to reach the last UEFA Champions League knockout stages if they fail to equal or better Borussia Dortmund’s result later this evening.

Six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Messi, sits out this encounter as head coach, Ernesto Valverde, aims to keep Barcelona’s main man rested for important upcoming fixtures.

"We are coming off the back of a number of games and, taking into account what we have coming up, we decided he (Messi) couldn't come," according to Marca.

"These decisions are made by the coach based on what he believes is best."

Confirmed line-ups:

Inter Milan: Handanović, Biraghi, D'Ambrosio, Godín, Škriniar, de Vrij, Valero, Brozović, Vecino, Martínez, Lukaku.

Barcelona: Neto, Wague, Todibo, Umtiti, Lenglet, Junior; Rakitic, Vidal, Aleñá; Griezmann, Carles Pérez.
