First-half is over and the score is Barcelona 2–0 Man Utd. Here is the match report.
1′ Chance! Rashford hits the post!
OFF THE BAR! United open up Barcelona behind as Pogba slides a throughball forward for Rashford. He surges into the left inside channel and goes for the strike with the outside of his boot. Rashford connects well with his effort, but his strike clips the top of the bar and goes over.
10′ No Penalty! Man Utd get relieved
OVERTURN! The referee has overturned his initial decision as Fred made a clean challenge on Rakitic.
16′ GOAL! Barcelona 1-0 Man Utd (Messi)
MESSI PUTS BARCELONA AHEAD!!! 1-0!!! The Argentine punishes Young for a costly mistake at the back, burying a left-footed strike into the bottom corner. Young loses the ball under pressure at left-back and it travels to Messi on the edge of the box. He drops a shoulder to beat the challenge of Smalling before bending his effort around De Gea into the net. Clinical from Messi.
20′ GOAL! Barcelona 2-0 Man Utd (Messi)
MESSI HAS A SECOND!!! BARCELONA 2-0!!! De Gea has a howler between the sticks. The Spaniard allows a trickling strike from Messi on his right foot through his grasp into the bottom corner. De Gea does not make many mistakes, but this one could be costly to his team. Messi surged into space and fired at goal, but he was hardly expecting to score with that attempt. A bonus for the Argentine and Barcelona.
26′ Over the bar! Messi loses this chance
Messi surges into the box to collect Alba’s cutback. He controls the ball with his first touch before going for goal with his second, only to place his volley over the bar.
36′ Over the bar!
OVER! Messi tries an ambitious strike from distance. Not even he can test De Gea from 35 yards, curling his attempt harmlessly over the bar.
