Chelsea Sub19 v. Barcelona U19 - As it happened.
FT: Chelsea 0 - 3 Barcelona!! The Spaniards are champions!! A late charge by the home side didn't amount to any goals leaving Barca to win the UEFA Youth League thanks to a brace from Marques and a late strike by Ruiz!
GOAL!! Barcelona! Ruiz works some space in the box to hit a cross shot into the bottom left corner, ending all hopes of a Chelsea comeback. 3-0!
Four minutes added on. Surely that isn't enough time for Chelsea to come back from two goals down?
Chelsea have a free-kick out on the left wing but the referee gives a foul in the box after it's taken and another chance goes begging.
Miranda is now given a yellow card for protesting.
CROSSBAR!! Charlie Brown is up the highest to meet a ball from the left but his header back across goal is too high and lands on the top woodwork!
Barca goalkeeper Pena is the latest to be booked, receiving a yellow for time wasting.
The visitors make their second change. Jaime coming on for match hero Marques.
St Clair tries his luck from the edge of the box but his attempt also goes wide of the near post!
CHANCE!! The ball is fired into Marques in the box but the striker completely misses it. What a chance!
Barcelona make their first substitution. Orellana is taken off for Dani Morer.
Last Chelsea change. Lamptey for Maddox.
The home side make another change. Redan off, Charlie Brown on.
McCormick drags a shot wide of the target. Chelsea looking much more of a threat now.
POST!! The resulting free-kick from Hudson-Odoi is struck well but the accuracy isn't quite there as it smacks the inside of the left post, coming back out into play before Barca clear!
Chelsea have a free-kick on the edge of the box after Orellana is booked for a challenge. Can they pull one back?
Chelsea are the first to make a change as Guehi comes off for McEachran.
CLOSE!! McCormich jumps off the group to meet a falling ball in the box with his foot. His attempted bicycle kick whistles past the far post!
GOAL!! Barcelona!! Marques gets his second of the game! Chelsea want to play the ball from the back but the pass to Guehi isn't quite accurate and the striker pressures him hard, winning the ball before slotting it comfortably past Cummings. 2-0!!
Barca appeal for a second yellow for James after the defender takes out a player without touching the ball. The referee, however, chooses to ignore the protests and Chelsea still have 11.
Second half is underway!
HT: Chelsea 0 - 1 Barcelona! The game took a while to get going but Barca have finally edged in front through Marques and look to be dominating proceedings. Can the home side fight back in the second half?
Reece James is the latest to go into the book for a challenge on Miranda.
SAVE! Cumming makes an important save down low to deny Miranda. Barcelona really dominating now.
Barca skipper Mingueza receives a yellow card for hurling down Hudson-Odoi.
GOAL!! Barcelona! Ruiz wins the ball on the left wing, running toward the goal. The winger then fires a pin-point cross across its face, putting it on a plate for Marques to head into an empty net. 1-0!!
Sterling is booked for a foul on Puig.
CLOSE! The ball bounces around the edge of the area before falling to Carlos Perez whose shot at goal takes a lopped deflection and nearly falls under the crossbar.
As is normally the case with finals, it's been a somewhat cagey affair so far. Neither team wants to make a mistake but it's going to have to open up soon.
A route-one approach nearly puts Barca through but Cumming comes out the box to try and clear. His attempt falls to Ruiz who can't chip it over the keeper to break the deadlock. Cumming is spared his blushes there.
A foul in the box sees the chance go to waste for the 'Blues'.
The home side come firing back and win a corner. Chelsea are definitely a threat here despite Barcelona seeing the majority of possession.
Chelsea have a free-kick 30 yards out, slightly to the right. Barca head away the danger.
Puig has been Barca's best creative outlet at the moment, setting up Marques but the striker's heavy touch sees the chance break down.
Now it's Barca's turn for a corner after Chelsea stifle an attack from Puig.
Nothing comes of the corner.
Chelsea have a corner after James whips in a dangerous ball from the right. It just evades a poaching Reden and Barca clear it out for the set-piece.
Barcelona are enjoying the majority of the ball at the moment with Chelsea happy to sit back and counter.
