  • BARCELONA LEAD! On his first start for the club, Kessie strikes! An outswinging corner from the right finds the head of Kounde near the penalty spot, and the Frenchman's cushioned nod-down lands perfectly in the path of his fellow new boy to score with a header from close range! That's 1-0 to the hosts, and no more than their start deserves.

  • PLZEN PULL ONE BACK! On the counter, Sykora scores for the Czech champions! Having saved an almost certain goal at the other end, Jemelka pops up in the Barca box; clipping over a ball from the left byline for his colleague to steer past Ter Stegen from close range! Plzen are back in it: 2-1 to Barca!

  • BARCA HAVE A THIRD! The home side restore their two-goal lead before the break, as Lewandowski steers in a header at the back post from close range! Once again, Dembele was Barcelona's key creative force, and it was the winger's cross which picked the Polish hitman out. It's 3-1 heading to the interval!

  • LEWY GETS HIS HAT-TRICK! Just onto the pitch, Torres picks out Lewandowski with a cute flicked pass into the striker's path, and with typical aplomb, Lewy obliges - driving the ball past Stanek from the edge of the box and into the bottom-right corner! It's 4-1 to Barca!
