Barcelona v Slavia Praha - as it happened
Thanks for joining us today. See you in a few moments for more Champions League action.
FT: Barcelona 0-0 Slavia Prague. A momentous result for the Czechs, and a dismal result for Barcelona. They are still on course to qualify but the boos in the crowd can be justified.
3 minutes added time!!
Slavia currently have 10 players behind the ball. Crazy!!
Kudela is booked for pulling Messi back as he was attacking.
This time Rakitic has a chance. Fati passes to him and he blazes wide.
Slavia sub: Provod replaces Masopust.
Husbauer is booked for a cynical foul on Fati as he was breaking.
Great save Kolar!!! Fati gets it on the wing, he drives and puts in a cross, Messi gets on the end of it and Kolar saves. Great chance and save!!!
Can Barca conjure up a moment of magic?
This is unthinkable if Barca draw this match. They are supposedly playing the 4th lowest ranked team in the tournament. Barca are the top-seeded side....
Barca sub: Busquets off for Rakitic.
And Rakitic will be coming on for Barcelona. An odd change here.
Let's see if Fati can turn this game around.
Barca sub: Dembélé off for Fati.
Slavia sub: Stanciu off for Husbauer
Messi is fouled at the edge of the box. Another good chance.
Messi is through, squares it to Vidal who taps it in the net, but Messi was offside.
Slavia sub: Tecl on for Traore.
Dembélé chips the ball over to Roberto, but he can't dink it past Koler. Probably should have done better,
Sevcik has a shot from outside the box that goes wel over.
Messi steps up and he free-kick goes over the bar.
Stanciu goes into the book for a foul on Messi right at the edge of the box. Stay tuned!!!!
Barcelona sub: Alba off for Roberto.
And we're back!!
HT: Barcelona 0-0 Slavia Prague. Barcelona showing glimpses of their usual self, but other than that this is a game that Slavia could easily sneak. They have already had Barca on the ropes.
Slavia just have a great chance. The ball comes to Stanciu and is header is saved beautifully by Ter Stegen. He scores the rebound but the initial header is ruled out for offside.

Vidal has just given away a foul right on the edge of the box. Another good chance for Slavia.
Incredible from Messi. He gets the ball at the halfway line, he dribbles up until the edge of the box, gets his shot away and it hits the bar. What a goal that would have been.
Barcelona looking very sloppy with their passing. Slavia are capitalising on this.

Olayinka is booked for a foul on Semedo Good position.
Barca trying to find their way through but can't seem to get a shot away.
Piqué is booked for pulling back Olayinka as he was attacking.
What a save from Kolar!!. Piqué finds Semedo with a lovely pass, he runs into the box and gets his shot away, and Kolar saves it with his foot. That's more like the Barcelona we all know!!
Slavia have just won a corner. They are getting past the Barca defence far too easily.
Sevcik gets to the byline and tries to cross, it takes a deflection and almost catches Ter Stegen out who has to claw it away on the line. Nervy stuff from Barcelona.
No chances so far. Barcelona seeing most of the possession.
And we're off!!!
Listening to the Champions League theme tune is incredible. Let's hope for an incredible match!
