57’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 2-1 Porto (Félix): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! The comeback is complete as João Cancelo and João Félix combine on the left wing and the forward scores a gorgeous right-footed flick to put the home team in front!


SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 1-1 Porto: Back underway at Montjuïc!


HALFTIME, Barcelona 1-1 Porto: A fantastic, thrilling first half at Montjuïc. The score is 1-1 but could easily be 2-2 or 3-3 as both teams created and missed some big chances, and the second half promises to be a whole lot of fun if the game continues to be this wide open.


32’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 1-1 Porto (Cancelo): BARÇA EQUALIZE!!! A crucial and instant response from the home team as João Cancelo receives the ball on the left wing, dribbles past João Mário and fires a beautiful curler into the bottom corner!


30’ GOAL, Barcelona 0-1 Porto (Pepê): No offside this time. Porto are ahead as they go on a quick counter-attack and Galeno has his shot saved by Iñaki Peña, but Pepê is first to the rebound and buries the opener for the visitors.


26’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Porto take the lead through Taremi who scores at the far post after a cross from the right, but the striker is offside and the goal is called off.

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, watch the 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!
