Last year’s runners-up were beaten by Red Star Belgrade, although the biggest losers on the night were Thierry Henry’s AS Monaco, who were eliminated following a resounding loss to Club Brugge. Lionel Messi was still missing for Barcelona at the San Siro, and it was substitute Malcom who came off the bench to give the Spanish champions a late lead. However, Inter hit back to earn a point thanks to Mauro Icardi’s 87th-minute leveler, keeping the three-time former winners on course to join Barcelona in qualifying for the last 16 from Group B. However, Tottenham remain in the hunt to advance after Kane’s late brace secured a 2-1 victory over PSV Eindhoven. Liverpool were strong favorites away to Red Star in Serbia, but Juergen Klopp’s team were poor in a 2-0 defeat to the 1991 European Cup winners.
