Barcelona youngster Sergio Busquets admits his side don’t visit Inter Milan in the Champions League semi-finals at the ideal time, but claims there will be no excuses. The Catalan giants, who could only manage a goalless draw against Espanyol at the weekend, will have to subdue a fired up Italian side, fresh from defeating rivals Juventus.

We are in with a chance to reach another final and we don’t want to throw that away. We know Inter will make it tough for us,” the midfielder said on the club’s official website. “We have been having a lot of big games and it’s not the ideal way to travel to Milan, but there can be no excuses. We have to get a good result that will allow us to go into the second leg with confidence”.

Barcelona are attempting to become the first club to defend their Champions League title, making Tuesday’s match at the San Siro a vital match for Josep Guardiola’s side.
