Marc-André ter Stegen was the best of Barça and prevented his team from scoring Dortmund (0-0). The Germans had quite clear chances and even failed a penalty. Barça did not have its night and barely disturbed Bürki's goal
The Borussia Dortmund went out to bite from the minute one and squeezed to the FC Barcelona in the first compasses of the meeting. The Germans, in fact, approximated with danger in several occasions and infundieron the fear in the defence barcelonista. Jadon Sancho asked a penalti, Paco Alcácer tested luck and threw diverted, and Griezmann lost a balloon that could finish in discontent.
In spite of this, the Barça knew redo and in the minute 13 Hammered had the first big occasion of the meeting. The central combed a corner from the first stick and his head butt strolled by the small area without that anybody finished it. The approach, nevertheless, did not do that the Barça did with the rudder of the party and the Dortmund followed tightening up every time that had option.
Marco Reus did that the opportunity of Hammered remained in at all after being about to mark in the minute 25. Big combination of the ones of Lucien Favre, big pass to the gap of Hazard and grandísima unemployed of Ter Stegen in front of the definition of the captain of the Borussia. The archer culé covered all the gaps and finish stopping with the leg the shot of Reus.
Only three minutes afterwards, Matts Hummels went back to be near to mark with a head butt that finished going high. The central German did not hit in the finish and the Barça could breathe calm for the moment. And it is necessary to say for the moment because only some minutes afterwards Jordi Alba fell to the floor lesionado. The side left and went back to go in to test , but finally had to be substituted by Sergi Roberto.
Before the rest, the Barcelona tightened and to unemployed balloon created two occasions of danger. First it was Ansu Fati the one who tested luck after taking the clear of fists of Bürki. The shot of the canterano went to corner after touching in a defence. Later, Arthur closed his centre to the first stick, Griezmann combed and, once again, anybody could arrive to his left. The Borussia finished clearing the ball to arrive at the end of the first time with tie to 0.
The Borussia forgave in the second part
The Barça began the second strong part and to the two minutes Luis Suárez had the best occasion of the barcelonistas in the chpque. Good driving of Semedo in his new place in the left, pass to the charrúa and manoeuvre of 'crack' of the '9' to go of Akanji. The tip went remaining without place after the dribbling, but still like this had space to try mark in front of the exit of a Bürki that finished putting the hand to kickoff of corner.
But in spite of the occasion, the Borussia did not go to rack and ruin and tightened as much as in the first time in the back minutes. After several arrivals with some consecutive danger, Sancho put in the area, recortó to Semedo and the luso precipitated , stepped him and did penalti. Reus Was the attendant to launch it, but as in the first part, went back to find with a saviour Ter Stegen. The goalkeeper germano guessed him the side, stopped and besides trapped the balloon after the rebound.
After the wonderful action of the guardameta Barcelona, the Barça tried to take a step forward to measure the nervousness of the Dortmund. Valverde Took out to the field to Leo Messi and to Ivan Rakitic to go to by the party, but the venues showed impasibles. Reus Wanted to desquitarse of the failure in the penalti and had two arrivals with danger that frustrated the defence culé.
The command of the crash was of the Borussia and Paco Alcácer failed to a metre of Ter Stegen a goal that seemed sung. Good centre of Hazard that the Valencian did not hit to mark at first and threw very high. But the German team did not conform and, after the referee forgave him the second yellow to Hammered by a clear hand, Reus had again the 1-0 in his boots. Big played by the right of the germanos, good centre of Achraf and finish of the captain entirely only from the penalty spot that was very high.
But the Dortmund had not finished still and of the 73 to the 80 had until three occasions of very clear goal to mark. First it was the recently trado Brandt the one who, with a whiplash from out of the area, commanded the ball to the crossbar. Few minutes afterwards went back to be Reus the one who forgave and Ter Stegen the one who went back to save to the Barça. The German forward could not surpass to his compatriot to the first and neither converted the rebound.
The Barça tightened in the last ten minutes of crash and shut to the Dortmund, but did not create any occasion of danger. Leo Messi tried it several times, but the one of Rosario was too alone, the same that in all the pricks of the Barcelona the past year. The Germans arrived very tired to the last minutes and neither had air to mark. The own '10' had an occasion in the last second, but the defence germana interposed between him and the goal. Finally, tie to at all in Germany with a Borussia that deserved much more, but to the that condemned his fault of puntería.
