    FT: Frankfurt 1-1 Barcelona! An enthralling contest is brought to a close! Two stunning goals have left this tie perched on a knife-edge. Will the visitors be left to rue not pressing home their man advantage following Tuta's late red card? Xavi's tactical switch on the hour appeared to limit Frankfurt's attacking options, will they be able to find an answer next Thursday? An intriguing second leg awaits in the Camp Nou.

  • 85'
    The game is looking very stretched at the moment. Will we be treated to a winner of the standard of the first two goals?

  • 66'
    GOAL for Barcelona! Barcelona are level with a neat passing move!

  • 54'
    Borre is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 49'
    Almost a second for Frankfurt! The home side break quickly in a counter which culminates in the lively Kostic scampering down the left flank before drilling a low cross into the box. It is slightly behind Lindstrøm, who readjusts but can only power a left-footed effort wide of goal.
Goal
Goaaaaaal!
de Eintracht Frankfurt en el 48'
  • 48'
    GOAL for Frankfurt! What a strike from the hosts! Barcelona clear the danger from the corner momentarily but only into the path of the 20-year-old midfielder. He brings the ball down with his left before sending a dipping half-volley out of reach of ter Stegen and just inside the upright. A sumptuous goal.
  • 46'
    The second half begins!
  • 45'
    HT: Frankfurt 0-0 Barcelona! Frankfurt will be the happier side at the break. The hosts recovered from being indebted to Trapp's super save from a Ferran Torres thunderbolt just three minutes in and have largely enjoyed the better chances since, although predictably, have not had the majority of the ball. Glasner's men have given Xavi a lot to think about at the break.

    The referee has gone over to the pitchside monitor to carry out a review of the decision after the award of a penalty for a challenge by Sergio Busquets on Borre.
  • 38'
    A check is being carried out on the award of the penalty.
  • 38'
    The hosts have a penalty! Kostic's low cross from the left is pushed away by Ter Stegen and with Borre looking to capitalise in the rebound, he looks to be felled by a challenge from Sergio Busquets.
  • 36'
    Barcelona clear Kostic's delivery into the box from the free-kick, but only as far as Lindstrøm, who is lurking on the edge of the area. He brings the loose ball under control but can only blast a right-footed effort high over the bar.
  • 33'
    Foul by Kostic on Gavi.
  • 31'
    Jordi Alba is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 26'
    The hosts work the ball well in midfield with some crisp passing, before Jakic tries his luck from around 27 metres, but his hopeful effort lacks the power to test the Barcelona custodian.
  • 23'
    Barca sub: Clement Lenglet replaces Pique, due to injury.
  • 17'
    A Frankfurt defensive clearance hits Aubameyang with Ferran Torres quickest to the rebound. He picks out the forward in space out to the right, who blasts a right-footed strike at Trapp's near post from a tricky angle, but it flies into the side netting.

    Borre is adjudged to be in an offside position.

    Lindstrom is penalised for a foul on Jordi Alba.
  • 4'

  • 3'
    What a stop from Trapp! Ferran Torres bursts through the middle and unleashes a fierce, right-footed drive from distance that appears to be heading into the top corner. The home goalkeeper has other ideas though, and, at full stretch, somehow gets a fingertip on the ball to divert the strike over the bar.
  • 3'
    Corner awarded to Barcelona.
  • 3'
    This vibrant atmosphere fits in a pattern for Barcelona. They've overcome tough nights in Istanbul and Naples, two of Europe's most passionate football cities, so this Frankfurt noise won't be a factor in how they play.

    The visitors get the game started as they hope to take a major step towards adding the UEFA Europa League trophy to their collection.
