UEFA Champions League 2018-19: 5 Takeaways for Barcelona in their 1-1 draw with Inter Milan
#2 Arthur continues to impress
Only in his fourth match in the Champions League, Arthur continued to impress as the replacement for Don Andres Iniesta. With their play consistently pivoting from him, the ball gets distributed from left to right or vice versa in a quick manner.
Not only did he show some finesse like the old No. 8, but he also showed some fantastic touches just like the old number six, Xavi Hernandez. It seems like two of the greatest midfielders was merged into a single body that is of Arthur Melo.
He proved to be among the elites in this match as his passing percentage is at 97% as well as created two goal-scoring chances for the travelling side.
He clearly provided a variety of options for Barca with his balling flying to the left side for Jordi Alba or his incisive passes for Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez.
