Luis Suarez scored two second-half goals as Barcelona came from behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Lautaro Martinez put Inter ahead in the second minute and the Italian visitors had several chances to add to their lead before Suarez leveled against the run of play in the 58th with a superb strike from outside the area.

It was then Lionel Messi's turn to take over late, when he dribbled past two defenders while gliding down the right flank before finding Suarez. The Uruguay striker used an excellent first touch to take the ball past Diego Godin before slotting in the winner.

Antonio Conte's side had kept Messi in check for most of the match. But Messi, who had not played more than 45 minutes in any game this season due to injuries, saved his best for the critical moment to deal Inter its first loss of the season in all competitions.

Barcelona shares the lead of Group F with four points along with Borussia Dortmund, which beat Slavia Prague 2-0 with two goals by Achraf Hakimi. Inter and Prague were left with one point from two matches.
