Reports earlier today claimed that Barcelona were ready to file a formal complaint to UEFA over the refereeing decisions in the game against Inter Milan.

However, as per the latest update from journalist Adria Albets, the Catalan giants are unlikely to go ahead with such a move even though they feel frustrated over the way things went down on Tuesday night at the Giuseppe Meazza.

Barcelona saw a number of officiating calls go against them during the game against Inter, with the referee and VAR ruling out a goal that was legal and then denying two clear-cut penalties to the Catalan giants.

On top of that, there was a possible red card for Hakan Calhanoglu which was not shown either.

Manager Xavi Hernandez and the Barcelona team were left furious by the decisions. Following that it was claimed that the Blaugrana were preparing to file an official complaint against the officials and the Video Assistant Referee.

However, as per the aforementioned update from Adia Albets, Barcelona studied such a possibility and debated over it, but at the moment, are unlikely to go ahead with the complaint.

The club remain unhappy with the situation, given that the same VAR who was in duty yesterday had denied them a penalty in the clash against Bayern Munich last month. However, at this point, they will not be going ahead with an official complaint.

Barça will face Inter Milan again in a week at Spotify Camp Nou. A win will be necessary for Xavi & co. to stand a chance of qualifying for the Round of 16 stage of the Champions League.

Elimination from the group stage once again could see them miss out on a possible €52.7 million payout from UEFA.
