Iniesta goes for goal but flashes his strike well wide. 0-0 [48′]

Second Half

Half-time: Chelsea 0-0 Barcelona.

Unlucky from Hazard who crashes a volley just over the bar after a Fabregas free-kick was headed away. Still 0-0 but we’ve certainly had the better of the chances so far. 0-0 [43′]

Off the post! Willian, yet again, thumps the post. How unlucky can you be? 0-0 [40′]

Fabregas attempts to release Hazard with an incisive pass from deep but the Belgian was unable to get on the end of it. Great idea and unlucky from the midfielder. 0-0 [39]

Off the post! Stunning strike from Willian and it crashes against the post with the keeper rooted to the spot, so close! 0-0 [33′]

Alonso curls it over the wall but it’s a comfortable save for ter Stegen down to his left. 0-0 [30′]

A brilliant run by Willian is brought to a halt as he’s tripped by Rakitic. Yellow card for the Barca midfielder and a Chelsea free-kick, Alonso stands over. 0-0

A wayward pass from Christensen goes behind for a Barca corner. 0-0

Best chance of the game so far for Barca as Messi picks out Paulinho but his header is a poor one and rolls well wide. That was a let-off for the Blues. 0-0 [15′]

Lovely play by Hazard who skips past Paulinho but his cross was blocked. As he sent in back into the box Iniesta cleared and the ball struck the arm of Kante. 0-0 [13′]

Azpilicueta does well to tidy up as Iniesta tried to play in Suarez. 0-0 [11′]

Fabregas takes it but his delivery is headed away, Chelsea back in possession though. 0-0 [7′]

Willian is then fouled by Alba and wins a free-kick deep inside the Barca half.

So close! Hazard fizzes one just wide, great effort by the Belgian!

Messi crosses to the back post, Alonso gets there first and clears.
