That's that here at the Camp Nou.

Caligara is booked

He upends Busquets and is booked for his troubles.

Juve make a change

Caligara comes on for Higuain.

Barca make their final change

Iniesta is replaced by Andre Gomes.

Drama!

Ter Stegen is called into action to tip the ball round the post and from the resulting corner Juve think they have a goal back but it is cleared off the line by Pique. Juve's players claim that he used a hand but the referee is unmoved.

Goal disallowed

Suarez has the ball in the net but the flag is up for offside.

Barca make a change

Pjanic is booked

He catches Sergi Roberto late and goes into the book.

Barca make a change

Ousmane Dembele is replaced by Sergi Roberto.

Barcelona 3-0 Juventus

Game over! Is there anything this boy can't do? He picks up the ball 30 yards out before cutting inside, beating two men and rifling the ball into the bottom corner with Buffon helpless.

GOAL! BARCELONA!

Messi!

Juventus make a change

Bernardeschi comes on for Bentacur.

Messi hits it

Great save from Buffon! Messi's set piece is heading for the top corner but the Italian gets across to make the save.

Barzagli is booked

He wrestles Dembele to the floor on the edge of the box and is booked. Dangerous free kick this.

Barcelona 2-0 Juventus

Messi is in acres down the right and he drives into it, his low cross beats Buffon but is scrambled away but only as far as Rakitic who tucks it home. Game over?

GOAL! BARCELONA!

Rakitic!

Messi is booked

Messi demands a booking for Pjanic and the referee isn't impressed, choosing to book the Argentine instead.

Off the post!

Messi is so close to doubling Barca's lead! He takes aim from the edge of the box but his effort comes crashing back off the post. It hits Buffon and goes behind for a corner. Unlucky on both fronts, that could have gone anywhere.

Chance Juve!

Alex Sandro's low cross is only cleared as far as Dybala on the edge of the box but he fires over as he looks for the top corner. Great chance.

Juve get us back underway

Can they turn things around here?

The teams reemerge for the second half

HT: Barcelona 1-0 Juventus

Barca lead at the half thanks to that goal from Lionel Messi.

Half-time!

The whistle goes here.

1 minutes added on

Barcelona 1-0 Juventus

The Argentine plays a one-two with Suarez just outside the box before firing low into the bottom corner of Buffon's goal. There's nothing the Italian could have done to stop such a precise finish.

GOAL! BARCELONA!

Messi!

Juve look to fashion a chance

Blaise Matuidi tries a combination of craft and force and sees an effort blocked away for a corner, which is cleared.

De Sciglio can't continue

He picked up a knock in a challenge with Andres Iniesta and can't carry on. Stefano Sturaro comes on to replace him.

Dembele goes close

He seizes on a loose pass on the edge of the box and looks for the top corner but his effort is blocked away for a corner. The Frenchman wants a penalty for the challenge on him but the referee is unmoved.

Yellow card for Nelson Semedo

He brings down Douglas Costa as he looked to break and is rightly booked.

Barca guilty of overplaying

They have a couple of chances to test Buffon in the Juve goal but they look for an extra pass and lose possession.

Juve go forward

Higuain gets in down the left but his effort is deflected into Ter Stegen's hands by Pique.

Bentacur is booked

He slides in late on Rakitic and goes into the book.

Close Juve!

Bentacur looks to get a shot away from just inside the Barca box but his effort is blocked away. The resulting corner comes to nothing.

Close for Barca!

Messi's low free kick hits the wall and rebounds to Suarez who sends a powerful shot goalwards that Buffon tips over.

Dangerous free kick here for Barca

Iniesta is felled right on the edge of the Juve box by Matuidi. Lionel Messi territory this.

Chance Dembele!

The Frenchman is put in over the top but Buffon races out to clear the danger.

Juventus certainly aren't shot-shy

The Italians are more than happy to try their luck from range when the opportunity arises.

Pjanic takes aim!

The midfielder drives in a low shot from range but Ter Stegen gets down to it and is able to gather before Dybala can pounce on the rebound.

Barca want a penalty

They feel that Sergio Busquets was fouled by Benatia as he looked to attack Messi's free kick, the referee though does not agree.

Juve counter

Dybala races forward but with no support he is forced to try his luck from wide on the left of the box and his effort is easily stopped by Ter Stegen.

Barca have a free kick on the right

But Messi's delivery is headed away.

Dembele drives forward

He is penalised for a foul but the youngster is certainly looking positive and direct so far.

De Sciglio tries his luck

The defender fires in a strike from range and Ter Stegen just about gets fingertips on it to tip it wide.

Dembele gets to the byline

But his low cross is blocked away for a corner, which Juve clear.

Barca moving the ball around nicely early on

Ernesto Valverde's side look confident.

We're off!

Barca get us underway.

The Champions League anthem is back
