Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has admitted Tuesday's crucial Champions League showdown with Internazionale is like a final for the struggling European champions.
Six months on from winning last season's final against Manchester United in Rome, Barca know that anything other than a positive result at home to the Italian champions could see them fail to progress from a tight group.
The Spanish champions are behind both Inter and Rubin Kazan in a congested Group F after winning just one of their four games to date.
"We have no doubts. We know what we have to do, what led us to win it all last season," declared Puyol.
"We will go into this game with the same desire and ambition. The results can follow or not but we know that Barca-Inter is like a final and will face it as such.
" If we fail (against Inter) there may be no solution."
