    Time:90'
    • FC Copenhagen
    • FC Barcelona
    • 90' And that's the final action of the match. It finishes Copenhagen 1-1 Barcelona.
    • 90' Pedro rattles the post in the last minute! He steps inside Claudemir brilliantly before unleashing a stunning shot that hits the inside of the far post. That deserved a goal.
    • 88' Pospect (Copenhagen) is booked for timewasting.
    • 85' This could still go either way.
    • 84' Great skill by Bolanos on the edge of the box as he lifts the ball over a series of Barcelona challenges but he runs out of space and Barca clear.
    • 83' Messi and Alves exchange passes in the box, but neither can fashion the space for a shot and Copenhagen survive.
    • 81' Pedro on, Villa off
    • 80' Wendt dispossesses Messi again, who has endured a frustrating night. Despite his goal.
    • 78' But Valdes comes out to gather.
    • 77' Pique takes out Gronkjaer and Vingard will whip in the free kick from the left...
    • 75' David Villa has penalty claim turned down after he fell over Antonsson's leg. That would have been harsh.
    • 74' N'Doye has a goal disallowed for Copenhagen! He pushed Abidal in the back before leaping to head in.
    • 73' Copenhagen seem to be growing in confidence now as they've restricted Barcelona to crumbs in this second half.
    • 70' Bolanos has a glorious chance to give Copenhagen the lead but drags his shot wide of the near post after a deep cross by Gronkjaer. Copenhagen aren't going to get too many chances better than that!
    • 68' Iniesta cuts inside from the left in typical Iniesta style, but his pass to Villa is cut out. Barca staying patient despite Copenhagen's resilience.
    • 65' Barcelona have a decent penalty claim turned down when the ball bounces off Alves and appears to hit the arms of Wendt. Nothing given.
    • 63' Gronkjaer is pulling some strings for Copenhagen as the half goes on. He finds Bolanos on the left, whose cross is cleared. But the home side are not settling for a draw tonight.
    • 60' Barcelona dictating the play in Copenhagen. Copenhagen pinned into their own half.
    • 58' Xavi has an effort blocked on the edge of the box.
    • 57' Barcelona are asking questions of Copenhagen again, who are beginning to look tired having chased the ball for so long.
    • 54' Villa looks for Messi but Kvist is everywhere! He sweeps up at the back for Copenhagen.
    • 53' Kvist tries his luck from long range but it's always going over.
    • 50' Copenhagen are huffing and puffing in their attempts to get ahead here but they are looking very one dimensional on the attack. Pique and Puyol never truly concerned.
    • 48' N'Doye misjudges a ball into the Barcelona box and, at the far post, the Senegalese player fails to make contact with the ball. He was unmarked and that goes down as a missed opportunity.
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • 45' Join me in 15 minutes for the second half. Remember, you can follow me on Twitter at www.twitter.com/mjdasilva
    • 45' And that's the last significant action of the first half.
    • 45' Abidal finds Messi with a cross from the left and Messi takes his shot first time on the run but Wiland sticks a hand out and turns it around for a corner. That may have been sneaking just in.
    • 44' Bolanos fouls keita in what is scrappy end to this first half.
    • 42' Gronkjaer is flagged offside as he tries to roll off the back of the last defender, Abidal.
    • 40' Beautiful football by Barcelona. Iniesta is a magician. He lifts the ball over the Copenhagen defence for Messi, who uncharacteristically takes a poor touch. That could have been two quite easily.
    • 38' Messi goes close again with a stooping header from Alves' cross but Wiland gathers.
    • 36' Another lovely move by Barca, of course involving Iniesta. He finds Xavi, who squares for Messi, but Messi's shot is blocked on the edge of the box.
    • 34' The ball hit Keita on its way in but it definitely goes down as Claudemir's goal.
    • 33' It's raining goals all of a sudden but this one can only go down as a Victor Valdes howler. A good run and cross by Vingard down the left is fumbled by Valdes, leaving Claudemir at the back post to volley back across goal and inside the far post. Bad error by Valdes.
    • 32' GOAL! It's 1-1!
    • 30' And it's the world's best player with the strike! Lionel Messi finishes the move after Keita's cushioned header finds Villa in the box, Jorgensen does a decent job to deny Villa but his hooked clearance only finds Messi, who takes a touch and fires in from close range.
    • 30' GOAL! 1-0 Barcelona!
    • 28' And that should have been a goal! Xavi's low ball finds its way to the feet of Villa, who somehow only finds the keeper from 8 yards out.
    • 27' Kvist, the Copenhagen enforcer, gives Messi a kick on the calf that he'll know about in the morning. Free kick to Barca 35 yards out...
    • 25' Xavi's influence on the game is slowly growing as Iniesta can't quite get on the end of his pass. Barcelona are getting closer to that opening goal.
    • 23' Barcelona are feeling their way into the contest after a tentative start. Copenhagen's early brightness has receded.
    • 21' David Villa hits the post! Perfect pass from Iniesta splits the defence and Villa strikes right footed against the far post. Wiland was beaten there.
    • 19' Valdes just about flaps the ball clear after the corner catches him out at the near post. Uncomfortable moment for the Spanish keeper.
    • 17' Puyol concedes a corner and Copenhagen are bringing their big men forward from the back here.
    • 15' A sweeping move by Barca sees David Villa carry the ball some 50 yards and, with Keita marked, Villa goes for goal but his shot is blocked for a corner.
    • 13' N'Doye is receiving treatment but the game is going on.
    • 12' There's been a bad injury to N'Doye here. Valdes has come out at 100mph to clear the ball on the edge of the box and has totally taken N'Doye out. He looks concussed.
    • 10' Kvist is ticked off by the referee for a late foul on Busquets.
    • 8' Barca getting into their groove now. Iniesta looks for Keita with a cut back but Antonsson does just enough to get the ball clear.
    • 6' It was Pique who made the mistake.
    • 5' Claudemir hits the crossbar for Copenhagen! He saw a loose ball on the edge of the box, and smashes it against the bar. Early warning for Barca.
    • 3' And this is not looking good for Puyol. He's taken a real thump in the face.
    • 2' Puyol is down for Barcelona. He was caught in the face by Bolanos.
    • 1' We are underway in Copenhagen.
