Having taken the lead, Chelsea will be gutted they couldn't see it out. A defensive mistake resulted in the equaliser and Conte will be livid with that. Willian will be pretty annoyed, though he scored, as he could have had a hat-trick! The 1-1 result means we could have another entertaining game at Camp Nou. Chelsea will have to score an away goal, so we'll see a more open game from the word go!

It was a pleasure bringing the game live to you! Until next time, this is Amit Mishra signing off...
...
Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! Full time!
...
90+3' Barca try to keep the ball and run down the clock, exactly what they should be doing right now. 
...
90+1' The players look very leggy. Barca are making another change as Iniesta is off for Andre Gomes. 
...
3 minutes have been added on...
...
90' Yellow for Busquets for a tactical foul on Hazard. Cynical, that. Chelsea were on a break.
...
89' Doesn't look good for Alba as replays show he twisted his ankle. A bit of stoppage here...
...
88' It's end to end here as both teams are trying to get a goal. Barca look more likely as Chelsea are throwing more men forward, thereby leaving space at the back. 
...
87' Barca break forward with Vidal on the right. He had Suarez to cross to in the box but it takes a deflection and loops up for a thankful Courtois. 
...
86' Wasted. Chelsea play it short and Morata gets his shot away. It seemed to have taken a deflection but a goal-kick is given. The Spaniard is then booked for excessive appealing. Hmm...
...
85' Hazard wins a free kick. A good position this to whip in a delivery. Willian on the ball...
...
84' Danny Drinkwater is on for Cesc Fabregas.
...
82' Alvaro Morata is on for Pedro.
...
81' Willian makes another good run on the right and finds Hazard. The latter isn't able to make anything out of it as Barca get back in shape to shut out the move. 
...
Rudiger is booked. Didn't look like a good tackle as the Barca players wanted more than yellow. 
...
79' Chelsea have picked up their game since the equaliser. To be honest, they played a bit too deep after the opener. 
...
77' Moses gets a chance to make something happen on the right but Alba is so quick to get back in position and make the block. A goal-kick is given. 
...
That was a poor pass from Christensen. An outstretched Fabregas couldn't connect which resulted in Iniesta intercepting it. His vision to find Messi was something else though. And Messi calmly slotted it past Courtois. Barca have the away goal and it's 1-1. 
...
74' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! Messi! The hoodoo is over!
...
74' Willian breaks and again, fails to find Kante! Rakitic made the recovery tackle there!
...
73' Barca regain possession and again test the Chelsea defence. I count seven Chelsea players in their own half, including the keeper, and it isn't a set-piece. That's how hard it is for Barca. 
...
71' Barca are still probing the Chelsea defence which is solid as ever. Suarez was found by Iniesta there but the striker's first touch lets him down as Chelsea collect the ball. 
...
69' Chelsea counter and Barca barely hang on! Kante and Willian nearly combined for the one-two there. It was Kante who started the move and passed it to Willian, The Brazilian should have returned the favour but took too long as Umtiti return to make the block. Kante could have had a one-v-one situation on his hand had Willian found him!
...
67' They finally get the ball to Vidal on the right but his cross is overhit. Disappointing end to the move. 
...
66' Barca have managed to keep the ball since the ball but Chelsea are so narrow at the back! Barca need to stretch the backline a bit more here...
