FULL-TIME: BARCELONA 3-1 BORUSSIA DORTMUND

Two quickfire first-half goals killed off the Dortmund challenge early on, and Griezmann finished the match. Messi was magic once again, and but for a stellar goal and showing by Jadon Sancho, Dortmund were very much second best.

Great, great goal.

67' 

Piszczek really should have done better there, he has a foot on Messi.

Messi jumps double his height and almost scores a far post header after a big looping cross by Griezmann.

65' 

Barca having a funny five minutes but the crowd are getting behind the hosts.

Dortmund need to turn this period of pressure into a goal. And yes, now I would call it pressure.

61'

SAVE!

Sancho finds Brandt in the box and he almost pulls one back with a close-range effort but Ter-Stegen makes a great save.

The margins are tight and that's nearly 2-1.

60' 

Dortmund enjoying a rare spell of possession, but they can't quite turn it into pressure.

Still, it's a start, and it's still only 2-0. Incidentally, Dortmund were 2-0 down against Inter Milan at half-time and won that after scoring three second-half goals!

55' 

Ouch, Akanji catches the advertising boards with his head after a clash with Suarez, who naturally laughs it off.

KICK-OFF!

Here we go again!

 

This is about as involved as Reus has been this evening. Reacting to the ref getting knocked is the highlight.

  • End of 1st Half
 

HALF-TIME BARCA 2-0 DORTMUND

Dortmund started brightly and almost scored inside ninety seconds but just two defensive errors means two Barcelona goals. That's how clinical they are.

Messi to Suarez, then Suarez to Messi. The half-time whistle is a welcome sound for the German side.

45+1' 

Suarez looks to put Junior through but his pass smacks the referee on the side of the head. He's a little stunned and as protocol dictates we got to drop ball.

Two mins of stoppage-time.

45' 

RECORD

Another Messi-based stat

42' 

Some good work by Lenglet. A sturdy double challenge on the right.

Barca in complete control now. Will we see Sancho come on after the break?

40' 

That double suckerpunch has really taken the wind out of Dortmund's sails. There's little purpose to their passing now.

39' 

And Slavia Prague have equalised! Some good news for Dortmund.

37' 

Both goals came from Dortmund mistakes and they've really self-destructed in the last six minutes. They've lost their intensity and edge.

And to add insult to injury, Inter Milan are 1-0 up against Slavia Prague. It was two, but VAR and you know the rest.

Almost two!

Dortmund in trouble.

Griezmann gets ready!

He's had to watch from the bench, with all the spirit of a guy waiting in a hostel lobby after a late night.

25' 

Right up the other end Schulz is through on goal but he's well offside too.

As per the rules, the linesman kleeps his flag down until the play is over. Dortmund know as much that they were off, so the attack is fairly half-hearted,

24'

NO GOAL!

VAR overrules.

Messi played Suarez through and the Uruguayan makes no mistake from 10 yards out, but he's a yard offside in the build-up.

22' 

IN THE NET!

It's a goal!

Or is it?

Suarez puts Barca in front but VAR is on the case! Did he run too early?

21' 

Dembele, however, is getting a lot of the ball. His execution is just a little off.

And now Messi weaves his way through two or three yellows shirts but gets his pass all wrong. A wonderful run.

19' 

Barca just cannot get into their game here. Neither Messi nor Suarez have had a moment on the ball. But can Dortmund keep up this press? They are doing so much running when they're not in possession.

15' 

Dortmund taking the sting out of the game here. Moving about quickly, keeping hold of the ball. Buzzing around the final third. It's working too as Umtiti and Lenglet look almost confused about who they should mark.

13' 

First effort on target by Barcelona as Dembele rolls one into Burki's arms.

It's his first start of the season tonight!

11' 

That's a shocker by his standards. He tries to bend it low around the wall and just hits Busquets square on the leg. Rubbish. How does this guy have 700 appearances?

Messi lines up a free-kick
10' 

Free-kick. Messi doing his laces...

8' 

A little calm. But Messi brings Barca to life, curving a lovely ball into Dembele in the box. He pulls back for Rakitic but his shot is blocked by Akanji.

4' 

Barcelona have eight points in this group having scored just four goals. And they've not started well here!

2' 

OFF THE LINE

Immediate chaos and Barcelona scoop it off the line inside two minutes!

A fiercely quick burse into the Barca half has the Spanish side on the ropes. Dortmund spray the ball from left to right as Rakitic gives away possession and its Schulz who cannot quite get his shot on target.

Out to haunt his old club?

SANCHO ON BENCH

The England superstar is on the bench for Dortmund tonight. A game-changer of a player and perhaps he can make the difference from the bench.

Busquets. Was Sancho born when Buesquets made his debut? It doesn't feel like it.

19:31 

LAST TIME OUT

Things ended all square when these sides met in the reverse fixture in September.

But Dortmund got the better of a Messi-less Barca, with four shots on target to their opponent's one.

But Messi is playing tonight, so...

THE STORY SO FAR

GROUP OF DEATH

No surprise really that the likes of Barca and Dortmund are yet to qualify when they were lumped in the 'group of death'.

There's always one.

There's the small matter of Inter Milan also competing for a spot in the knockouts. And big bogey potential in Slavia Prague. Those two face off tonight and Inter need a win to keep their hopes alive.

BARCA v DORTMUND

Good evening and welcome to our live-text coverage of Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund!

Neither side have qualified for the knockout-stages heading into this one so it's all to play for. A win would be enough for Barcelona, while a win fort Dortmund would put the Catalan Giants in some danger.

Barca are top of La Liga but it's hardly been vintage stuff so far this season, while two games without a win has seen Dortmund slip to sixth in the Bundesliga.

A CL confidence boost required!

Stay with us for all the build-up and hype before we kick-off at 8pm.
