With his strike at the San Siro, Malcom joins the list of his countrymen who've scored for Barça
Malcom’s first goal for Barça, to make it 0-1 against Inter Milan with what turned out to be the goal to qualify the blaugranes for the next stage of the Champions League, sees him join an illustrious list of Brazilian players to have found the net for the Club.
It came in the 83rd minute of Tuesday’s match, a shot from outside the area which flashed past Handanovic and ensured Barça will emerge from the group stages of the European competition for the 15th consecutive season.
