FULL-TIME, Barcelona 1-1 Tottenham: We finish the group stage without a loss, and Spurs are moving on with Barça. So it’s pretty much a good night, especially since Barça played such a different team.
GOAL, Barcelona 1-1 Tottenham (Lucas 85’): SPURS ARE BACK IN IT! After Philippe Coutinho hits the post, Harry Kane finds himself in space on the counter and assists Lucas Moura for a giant goal. As it stands, Spurs are going to the Round of 16.
SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 1-0 Tottenham: Come on, boys, let’s finish the job!
HALFTIME, Barcelona 1-0 Tottenham: Dembélé’s worldie was really the highlight of the half. Both teams had a few half-chances here and there, but nothing too dangerous for the goalkeepers. Very fun game, though, as expected. It’s like basketball, almost. Non-stop action up and down the field!
GOAL!!!!!!!!! Barcelona 1-0 Tottenham (Dembélé 7’): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!!! Ousmane Dembélé robs the ball from Kyle Walker-Peters in midfield and goes on an INSANE run that ends with Harry Winks on the ground and the ball at the back of the net. WHAT. A. GOAL.
KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Tottenham: Come on, boys! Don’t give me a heart attack. Please.

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, no swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
