"We have important matches and we are excited to play them, even without Leo, as we will miss him".

"Tottenham" after defeats from "inter" and "Barcelona" on the road failed to beat PSV and to a minimum reduced their chances of getting into the playoffs of the Champions League. It's our turn to win and we hope it is on Sunday.

Barcelona and Real Madrid will play the first El Clasico without both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in 11 years when they meet in La Liga on Sunday.

But Messi made his way to Camp Nou to cheer on his teammates during the week.

"Messi often gets us out of jail in hard games against low blocks and obviously we want him to get better as soon as possible". It is a local match between two fierce rivals who struggle to dominate and claim the bragging rights in their locality.

"He showed a lot of faith in me and I have a lot of respect for him".

The defeat ended Inter's flawless start to Group B, with Luciano Spalletti's side now three points behind Barca heading into the reverse fixture at San Siro on November 6.

Each package had six Forever stamps on the envelope as well. "Let's say for example, that maybe these bombs aren't operational". According to sources, the explosive device was a PVC pipe with a timer (probably a digital alarm clock) to run the detonator.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since the last winners - a small office pool in California - were awarded $543 million. You may have another chance to cash in on a historic payday, but your odds are literally getting slimmer and slimmer each day.

The 26-year-old is also hopeful that Messi will finish his career at Barcelona.

Rafinha volleyed in Luis Suarez's cross after 32 minutes and Alba wrapped up the win with seven minutes left.

Barca will be without talisman Lionel Messi, who fractured his arm in the win against Sevilla over the weekend. FC Barcelona is located in the city of Barcelona, the Catalan capital, while Real Madrid is a team from Madrid, the capital of Spain, and they are more than 300 miles apart.

"We must play with great confidence but the minimum of arrogance given the good spell we are going through".

But nobody had more to prove to both Barcelona - and Inter- than Rafinha, who was loaned out to the Italian side for the second half of the last season.

"You have to think about qualifying for the knockout stages and then, when the real competition begins, try to keep your head on straight, while being resolute and ambitious".
