The goal of Malcom to the Inter of Milan seemed to clear all the accounts, but Mauro Icardi did to burst the head of some journalists, and also of some chains of television, regarding the mathematical classification of the FC Barcelona for the round of eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League 2018-19, that according to the normative UEFA already has produced .

It will be missing for seeing if it is as first or second of group, but the tie attained by the culés in Giuseppe Meazza guarantees to see them in the next eliminatory round, following point by point the rule that regulates tournament. Barça and Inter have 10 points at present, but the Tottenham, with four, could cause a triple tie to ten points if it wins to the Barcelona and to the Inter of Milan in the two remaining days.

In such a case, it existed the doubt on if it prevailed before the difference of general goals or the direct clashes between the teams empatados. Well, what prioritises the UEFA are the points obtained by each one of the clubs empatados, in the direct duels. Said of another way, the FC Barcelona has attained 4 points of 6 possible in front of the Inter, by what has preference by in front of the Italians.

In a triple tie, the FC Barcelona 'would throw' to the Inter of Milan, waiting for knowing which sucede in the next clashes, since for the moment the Barça has won also three points of three possible in front of the Tottenham, that could be three of six in the case that the 'spurs' gave the surprise of here to some weeks in the Camp Nou.

The Inter of Milan, by his part, comes off badly against the FC Barcelona but for the moment wins the comparative with the Tottenham, when having won in Giuseppe Meazza to the 'spurs' (2-1) after an agónica traced back in the first day of the Group B. 

Like this the things, the Barcelona already knows that it is classified mathematically. From now it will be missing to see if it is as first or second of group, although it already has remained checked in more than an occasion that this fact does not be used to to have too much importance, since at the end it is the draw the one who dictamina the luck of each team.

Be first of group, sobrevalorado in the Champions League

And, being first of group, the FC Barcelona could confront to a second of group like Liverpool or Paris Saint-Germain, or even another fearsome team according to how leave the two next days. The duties already are facts, therefore, and the next two days, in front of the PSV Eindhoven in Holland and the Tottenham in the Camp Nou, could serve to Ernesto Valverde to make probaturas in his onces and give rest to the most worn players. Or, at least, this would be the most intelligent.
