Malcom's First Goal For Barcelona Meant A Lot To Him

Malcom scored his first goal for Barcelona tonight and you could see how much it meant to him.

The Brazilian made the move to the Blaugrana for a reported €41 million in the summer but things haven't got going, with his cameo tonight just his fourth appearance in Barca colours.

He's had a tough time but it made it that much more sweeter when he found the net against Inter this evening. The former Bordeaux man took his goal very well, cutting in on his left foot and slotting past Samir Handanovic after being picked out by Philippe Coutinho.

He'd only been on 90 seconds, having come on as a substitute for Ousmane Dembele but he made an instant impact.

Then, as he wheeled away in celebration, he had tears in eyes and covered his hands on his face as he teammates swarmed around him.

After finding first-team opportunities hard to come by, Malcom will be hoping to get even more minutes under Ernesto Valverde - and of course he'll be hoping this goal is the first of many for the La Liga champions.

Tonight was his first competitive goal but he has already find the net for the club, with it typically coming in a pre-season game against Roma, who saw Barca hijack their summer move for him.
