Barcelona - Holders Barcelona comfortably saw off Inter Milan 2-0 with early goals from Gerard Pique and Pedro to go top of Champions League Group F on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola's side started the day under pressure lying third in the group and were weakened when Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were not in the starting XI.

But any worries were quickly dispelled when Pique volleyed in from a 10th-minute corner. Pedro then doubled the advantage after a flowing attacking move.

Inter, who started the day top of the group, struggled to create any chances.
