  • GOOOOOAAAALL!!!! The Blaugrana take the lead!!! Pedri's wide pass finds the Frenchman down the right, and he cuts inside before firing a curling shot towards the far corner. Simon saves, and parries it wide, where Lewandowski picks up the ball and crosses back into the area, where Dembele rises above Yuri to head into the net!!! A rare headed goal from the Frenchman, and it's 1-0 to the home side!

  • GOOOOAAAALLL!!! Barca double their lead!!! Roberto sets off over halfway and plays a one-two with Dembele. He receives the return ball inside the box, and blasts a shot across the face of goal, which takes a deflection off Martinez to wrong-foot Simon and fly into the net!! 2-0 inside 18 minutes, and Barcelona are well and truly up and running here.

  • GOOOOAAAALLL!!! There's the third!!! Dembele gives Yuri another nightmare as he glides past the left-back and inside, towards the box. He passes to Lewandowski in the centre, who turns De Marcos with ease and strokes the ball home with his left foot, to put a cruising Barca 3-0 up already!
