What's the story?

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has called his side the best in the world following their impressive comeback victory over Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League.

The hosts had to come from behind to get their first UCL victory of the season after Lautaro Martinez had given his team the lead in the second minute.

In case you didn't know...

In an eventful match at the Camp Nou yesterday, Suarez scored twice in the second half to give Barcelona the three points.

Barcelona currently hold the longest unbeaten home run in the UEFA Champions League. The Blaugrana have not suffered a defeat at the Camp Nou for over five years now, with Bayern Munich being the last team to defeat them, way back in 2013.

Suarez meanwhile, scored more than one goal in a Champions League match for the first time since the 2016-17 season - when Barcelona thrashed Celtic by 7-0. The Uruguayan has not replicated his LaLiga form in the European stage for the past couple of years, having netted just five goals in the last 29 UCL appearances prior to this game.

The heart of the matter

While speaking to the media, he labeled his side as the best in the world, claiming:

"We are in the best team in the world and everything is viewed with a magnifying glass. Being strong and focused, being aware that we are the team to beat – that's the mentality we should have in this Champions League."

The Uruguayan was also quick to praise his manager for altering tactics, continuing:

"He [Valverde] told us that we had to be more orderly when it came to pressing. That's why we have the coach, to correct those mistakes and we [were] aware of how we were to do it.

It is also a virtue of the rival because they have very fast players and have taken advantage of our spaces."

What's next?

Barcelona will be hoping to continue their winning momentum when they host Sevilla on Sunday evening.
