Marcelo Brozovic takes matters into his own hands to stop Barcelona!

There aren't many tougher places to go in world football than the Camp Nou. Barcelona's home ground is the biggest football stadium in Europe and it can be an incredibly daunting place to go, especially under the lights for a Champions League game. The Catalonians have won the competition 5 times and their home fans can really create an intimidating atmosphere, that's before you've even got down to taking them on on the pitch. Barca possess some of the worlds best players and on their day they can easily dismantle any team, which many have found out over the years.

The current crop of Barcelona players is no different, with stars such as Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic and Ousmane Dembele all capable of coming up with those moments of magic. Their jewel in the crown is undoubtedly Lionel Messi obviously, with the diminutive Argentine one of (if not the) greatest footballers in the history of the game but at the moment they're currently without him after he fractured his arm against Sevilla on the weekend. His injury meant that he sat out of Barcelona's clash with Serie A giants Inter Milan on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou, but he still watched on from the stands and really enjoyed himself.

Barcelona won 2-0 courtesy of efforts from Rafinha and Jordi Alba but this game will be remembered for one piece of innovate defending from Inter's Marcelo Brozovic. With Suarez stood over the ball at a free-kick the Croatian chose to slide below the wall to prevent the striker placing one in the bottom corner - something we've never seen before! The ball ended up going out for corner so his bizarre way of defending certainly did its job and it got a few laughs, with Messi finding pretty amusing!
