But Dembele's time at the club so far has been maddeningly inconsistent, with the Frenchman looking equally likely to race past three opponents or sloppily concede possession whenever he receives the ball, and regularly provoking the ire of Luis Suarez by concluding a promising run with a wasteful cross or over-ambitious shot.

"With Messi, they would have caused us more problems, but without him that caused us enough trouble as it was", Inter coach Luciano Spalletti said. But both Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic, who were doubtful for the match, made the starting lineup.
