FULL-TIME, Barbastro 2-3 Barcelona: Barça should have never even come close to being in as much trouble as they were at times in the second half, but the job is done and the Blaugrana are through to the next round. It should have been a whole lot easier, though, and it’s Barça’s own fault that they never put the tie away.


90+3’ GOAL, Barbastro 2-3 Barcelona (Prat pen): Marc Prat steps up and fires it home from the spot, and this one is not over yet.


90+2’ PENALTY TO BARBASTRO: Fermín López kicks Crespo inside the box and the referee points to the spot.


88’ GOAL!!! Barbastro 1-3 Barcelona (Lewandowski pen): IT’S THREE! Lewandowski steps up to the spot and passes the ball into the bottom corner to finally settle the tie and send Barça to the next round.


87’ PENALTY TO BARCELONA! Sergi Roberto sends a cross into the box and Robert Lewandowski’s header hits the hand of Javito López twice, and the referee points to the spot.


60’ GOAL, Barbastro 1-2 Barcelona (De Mesa): Barbastro are back in the game. A corner comes into the box, Jaime wins the initial header and Adrià de Mesa fires it home for the hosts.


51’ GOAL!!! Barbastro 0-2 Barcelona (Raphinha): BARÇA DOUBLE THE LEAD!!! Héctor Fort curls a gorgeous cross into the box and Raphinha arrives at the far post to tap it home!


SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barbastro 0-1 Barcelona: Back underway in Barbastro!


HALFTIME, Barbastro 0-1 Barcelona: Barça dominated the entire half and should be out of sight by now, but a bad offside call and a number of very poor decisions in front of goal by the Blaugrana means this is still a game as we head to the second half.


42’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Barça make it 2-0 with a João Félix header, but the goal is ruled out for an offside on the Portuguese forward. There’s no VAR so we don’t know if the call is correct, and it did appear Félix was just onside.


18’ GOAL!!! Barbastro 0-1 Barcelona (Fermín): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Frenkie de Jong starts a counter-attack with a ball over the top to find Raphinha, who plays a cross along the ground to find Fermín López all alone inside the box for an easy finish and the opening goal!


KICKOFF! Barbastro 0-0 Barcelona: And we’re underway in Barbastro!

Matchday Thread Rules
