FT: Barcelona 2-1 Juventus
...
90' 2 minutes of injury time
...
89' Barca have a free-kick on the edge of the box, with Luis Suarez taking it. He sends it well over the bar...
...
88' HE SHOULD HAVE SCORED! Courtesy some clever play and brilliant dribbling, Sergi Roberto finds a yard of space with the goal at his mercy, but his left footed effort is well wide.
...
87' Another swashbuckling run from Arda Turan ends with Barca earning a corner. Can the Blaugrana profit? Denis Suarez takes it to the far post and Szczesny comes out to tip the ball away from the goal.
...
84' NEARLY! Arda Turan chips a cross from the right that seems perfect for Suarez to volley home at the near post, only for Szczesny to come out and distract the Uruguayan into shooting wide.
...
81' CLOSE! Alena attempts a low drive from the edge of the box, but his left footed effort flies wide of goal, despite Szczesny scrambling across to get the ball
...
78' So close! Denis, Arda and Luis Suarez combine brilliantly to begin a foray forward on the right, before finding Luis in the box. The Uruguayan opens his body and attempts a guided shot into the bottom corner, but Szczesny is aware of the danger and pounces on the ball
...
76' IS THIS A FINAL?! Alex Sandro sends in a peach of a low cross that is begging to be turned into the net, only for Higuain to run onto the ball in the box and send his effort well over the bar!
...
75' A fairly quiet spell in the game, as both sides are sloppy in possession
...
71' This may be a friendly, but Arda is still complaining to the ref for his battle with Alex Sandro. Moments later, Luis Suarez is also in the wars..
...
68' HOW DID HE MISS?! Jordi Alba is sent clear of the Juve backline with a long ball and the Spaniard cuts the ball back for Denis Suarez in the box, but he skies his effort well over the bar.
...
66' Incredibly calm stuff from De Sciglio as he heads a cross from Arda straight into Szczesny's arms from close range, with Luis Suarez lurking.
...
63' As easy as they come. Chiellini simply outmuscles the mere mortals around him from the right wing corner and heads the ball home at the far post. Barcelona 2-1 Juventus
...
63' GOOOAL CHIELLINI!
...
62' WHAT A SAVE! Dybala forces Ortola into a great save with a superb low drive across goal, with the ball going out for a corner.
...
61' Oooof! Dybala gets his Neymar audition underway with a lovely shimmy of his bodt to wrongfoot, not 1, not 2, but 3 markers and begin a move. Sadly it peters out...
...
59' Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain, Juan Curadrado, Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro come on for Juventus.
...
58' Umtiti is down and receiving treatment after getting the worst of a battle with Mandzukic.Not many would get the better, to be fair...
...
55' TWO CHANCES IN AS MANY SECONDS! Luis Suarez makes a mug of De Sciglio and forces Szczesny into a good save from a narrow angle, before pouncing on the rebound and attempting to cross into the box, only for no Barca player to be following up for a certain goal at the far post.
...
54' WHAT A CHANCE! Juve should really have a goal back! Betancur sends in a clever low cross from the left to Pjanic making a late run on the edge of the box. The midfielder skies his effort when the goal was at his mercy.
...
Barca team for the second 45: Ortola; Semedo, Marlon, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Aleña, Roberto; Arda, Suarez, Denis.
...
51' Almost! Asamoah sends a cross from the left that finds Mandzukic, but the looping header presents no danger and the chance is wasted.
...
49' Luis Suarez does what he does and collects a pass from the left wing with an intelligent run into that channel, although his attempted cross is blocked out for a corner - which comes to nothing.
...
47' It's a very sedate start to the second half, as Barcelona pass the ball around at the back without any penetrative instinct - Umtiti and Marlon are indulging in a fair bit of stat-padding here.
