Barcelona fullback Maxwell insists they can handle major absences from the team for tonight's Champions League clash with Inter Milan.

Maxwell moved to the Nou Camp in the summer from Inter and is confident of victory, despite Barca missing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Abidal, Yaya Toure and possibly Leo Messi.

"They are important players for us, who can make a difference in any moment," said Maxwell, "but we all believe in the squad. A player cannot win games alone."

On his first months in Barcelona, the Brazilian added: "I'm happy here, the city is wonderful, it's a fantastic club and also my family is fine."
