90+5' 

And that's full-time. Barca win but I'm not sure how. Slavia Prague were the better team by a considerable distance for much of the match.

90+5' 

Husbauer's shot is deflected wide!

Pique makes the block and surely Barca have survived now?

90+4' 

Olayinka meets a corner at the near post but doesn't get enough on it. Kolar was up for that, all hands to the pump.

90+3' 

How have Barca not scored?!

It's three on one as they go on the counter attack, but Messi fluffs a simple pass from Suarez.

90+1' 

There are going to be five minutes of added time. This could be a nervy ending for the visitors.

89'

Another save from Kolar!

There's no pattern to this game now. Dembele sprints forward and finds Messi, who strides towards goal and tries to bend one past Kolar, who gets down well to save.

87' 

This is a grandstand finish from Slavia!

Husbauer, Sevcik and Olayinka have all had efforts blocked in quick succession. They couldn't, could they?

83'

A good save from Kolar!

Dembele opens up his body Henry-style but his shot is at a saveable height and parried away by the Slavia keeper.

80'

Minutes after coming off the bench, Vidal is booked and he's a lucky boy too. He felled Olayinka right on the line of the box and could well have given away a penalty.

74'

Alba squares a high ball invitingly towards Messi but before the Argentine can apply the finish Kolar rushes off his line and bunles the ball behind.

 
70' 

What a miss!

Messi plays a great through ball to Suarez, who drags his shot wide of Kolar. The wait for Suarez's first Champions League away goal in 18 matches goes on.

67'

Messi turns on the style, playing a wonderful give-and-go then getting the shot away, which is saved well by Kolar.

Boril eventually gets his yellow card, but for protesting Messi's pain.

64' 

Messi is in a heap on the floor after taking an elbow to the gut from Boril. Somehow it's not given a foul.

62' 

Despite the disappointment of scoring a rather farcical own goal, Slavia have responded fairly well.

  • Peter Olayinka

He does not get enough of it and Suarez, who is well off balance, tries to put it back in the danger area. It brushes Olayinka's arm and goes into the back of the net.

GOAL!

Barca have the lead again but they scarcely deserve it.

Messi hangs in a free kick which Olayinka looks to fend behind. He does not get enough of it and Suarez, who is well off balance, tries to put it back in the danger area. It brushes Olayinka's arm and goes into the back of the net.

54'

JUST WIDE!

What has happened to Barca? This time it's Stanciu who has a dig from distance which flies just wide of Ter Stegen's right-hand post.

 
Barcelona. Slavia, Fútbol

GOAL!

Slavia finally get their reward! Masopust collects a high ball brilliantly, feeds Boril, who finishes emphatically beyond Ter Stegen. They've deserved nothing less.

48' 

It's Slavia who have been the more impressive in the early exchanges of the second half. Olayinka stars the second half by robbing De Jong in possession but the Dutchman clears up the mess he made.

  • 2nd Half
46' 

And we're back! Will Barca settle after the break and go back to dominating? Or will Slavia continue their unlikely onslaught of the Catalans' goal?

  • End of 1st Half
45' 

And that's half-time. It looked like it might be a cakewalk when Barca went 1-0 up with barely more than two minutes on the clock but since then Slavia have had the better chances and are still well in this contest. Barca could not complain about being behind if a couple of those opportunities had gone in.

45+1'

We're into stoppage time but it's almost a disaster for Barca, as Pique misjudges a high ball and lets Masopust in. He shoots on the turn but it goes narrowly wide of Ter Stegen's goal.

39'

How have Barca not scored?!

Griezmann, Suarez and Messi all opt to pass from shooting positions. Eventually it's one of the midfielders - De Jong - who decides to take a shot, but it's well saved by Kolar. That's the closest Barca have come to a second goal.

37'

Ter Stegen is called into action again! Olayinka takes aim from distance and the German keeper tips it away when it flying towards the top corner.

36'

Another great save!

Slavia get in behind and Masopust forces a save from Ter Stegen but it was a tame shot.

We've got our first yellow card of the night and it's gone Jordi Alba's way. The Spaniard was fouled but certainly reacted unnecessarily rashly.

30' 

Semedo finally finds a good ball, slipping in Suarez, who should at least be working the goalkeeper from the edge of the box, but slices it high and wide.

29' 

Another nervy moment for Slavia!

Kolar comes charging out of goal to get to the ball, loses it, then wins it back.

28' 

Chaos in the Slavia box!

Messi hangs in a free kick which falls to the feet of an unaware Lenglet, who hesitates to shoot and the ball is desperately taken away from him.

27' 

Semedo gets down the right again - it's been a productive avenue for Barca - but Kudela clears his cross.

25' 

An interesting result from elsewhere in Group F... Inter now lead Dortmund 1-0 at San Siro.

23' 

So we're over halfway through the first half and although Slavia would be level were it not for a fine save from Ter Stegen, this match as been all Barca, though they're yet to truly challenge Kolar's goal since going ahead in the third minute.

20'

What a save!

Sevcik works it out to Boril on the wide left, who squares it to Zeleny, whose goalbound shot is wonderfully blocked by Ter Stegen.

19' 

We've got a break in play here as Semedo and Boril come together after a 50-50 ball.

15' 

Slavia have the chance to counter and Stanciu is in the Barca half with space to run into. But the Romanian's pass is poor and drifts harmlessly out of play.

14' 

Messi fails to control a cross from De Jong. Stranger things have happened, I suppose...

10' 

Semedo goes on the attack this time, striding forward with intent, but Coufal gets in there before Griezmann can apply the finish to the square ball.

7' 

Almost an instant reply!

Slavia get down the right brilliantly and the eventual cross evades everyone. When it eventually makes contact with an attacking player, he is almost is taken aback by it and Semedo charges clear.

And we're off!

Slavia get the game started and pass the ball around patiently.

 

Just five minutes to go! Get ready for the Champions League anthem.

So after a plucky draw against Dortmund and a dramatic win over Inter, can Barca kick their Champions League campaign into gear?

A win would put them in the driving seat in Group F but a loss, coupled with a win for the Italians over the Germans would leave three teams on four points halfway through the group stage...
