90 min: Mbappe scorches downfield on the counter-attack, dupes Lenglet with a stepover and then finds himself face to face with the keeper. He goes for the blaster into the top corner …. but gets it all wrong, swiping the ball high and wide.
87 min: Danilo curtails a Barcelona attacks with an expert tackle on the edge of his own area, then launches a counter. Di Maria has teammates to his left and right, with Barcelona over-exposed …. but he bungles the through-ball.
75 min: Alba curls the ball across the face of goal. Diallo does just enough to prevent Dembele from prodding it into the net. The striker could have had a hat-trick today if he were just a little crisper.
70 min: Twenty minutes left and Barcelona need three goals just to force extra-time. It seems preposterous … but the way they’re playing, if they manage to get one soon. you sense anything could happen….
69 min: More fine last-ditch defending by Marquinhos, and Danilo, sabotages another dangerous attack by Barcelona. From the resulting corner Navas reacts smartly to bat away a near-post header by Busquets!
61 min: Dainty interplay by Barcelona … followed by an almighty stramash in the box as Barça try to force the ball over the line. Marquinhos slides in to make a magnificent block on a shot by Messi from six yards!
