Guardiola: Barcelona can win without Messi, Ibrahimovic

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola insists they can beat Inter Milan tonight without star pair Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Both players will miss the Champions League clash due to injury, but Guardiola remains confident.

He said: "I still think we can win without them. We can also do so without others. We will come out and play our game - with what we have. Obviously we will miss Messi, who is the best in the world, just like Chicago would miss Michael Jordan or the Lakers and Kobe Bryant.

"I can not deny that they are two players (Ibra and Messi) who are very important. All we've done, we've done together. We will go with an eleven. If people want to make excuses, I won't. If they miss, we will play others."
