It's been a very entertaining opening 45' here in Barcelona.
There will be four minutes added on!

Pedri bursts through the middle. He flicks it with the outside of the right, looking for the run of Lewandowski, but Bastoni reads it well. 0-0
Inter are looking comfortable in this first half. Inzaghi will be pleased with his side thus far.
Barca try another one from distance.
This time is Sergi Roberto. It's straight down the middle, Onana spills it, and Lewandowski rushes in for the rebound.
The Polish striker wins a sliding tackle, but Onana goes over and is now receiving treatment to the disgust of the Barca fans.
The Spanish left-back tries his luck from distance. It must be 35 yards out. It flies wide of Onana's left-hand post.

Dumfries strikes it well. Ter Stegen is equal to the effort.
It's end to end now. 0-0

After some pushing and shoving between both sets of players, Raphinha sends a free in from the left. Lewandowksi is free but can't keep his header down.
Inzaghi's side should be ahead although Barca have had the majority of the ball.
Hakan Calhanoglu sends in a wonderful free. Dzeko hits the bar. He's only seven yards out and is in front of goal but he can't keep it down.
DZEKO OFF THE BAR!
The majority of the play has been in Inter's half. The Serie A side only had 28% possession in the reverse fixture in San Siro last week.
Raphinha's corner from the right is cleared.
Barca have another corner. It's Raphinha again and this one is also cleared.
Since losing 5-1 to Valencia in 2004, Inter have not won any of their eight games away to LaLiga sides, and seven of those were defeats.
Busquets wins it back high up and plays it to Raphinha. The former Leeds man turns back onto his left before curling an effort over the bar from 20 yards.
Lewandowski has his header cleared off the line!
Raphinha picks him out at the back post from his right wing corner.
Lautaro drives through but hits the side-netting and is offside.
Pedri is playing in a very advanced role. He did say pre-match that Xavi wanted him closer to the box. This role gives Gavi more responsibility in midfield. It's scary to think just how young they are.
Barcelona have hosted Inter five times in the Champions League and have not only won every time but have only conceded one goal in the process. Lautaro Martínez scored a consolation in 2019.
Hakan Calhanoglu leaves it for Dimarco. Lautaro heads it wide at the front post.
Inter win the first corner of the game.
Alonso sends a long diagonal ball from left to right. Sergi Roberto can't get high enough to head it and it goes out for a goalkick.
Raphinha is starting on the right; Dembélé is on the left. Lewandowski, who was quiet in Milan last week, is playing through the middle.
Barcelona are playing from left to right as we watch it.
It's loud at Camp Nou tonight. They know the magnitude of this one.
We're underway at Camp Nou!
It's Barcelona vs Inter!
Barca have only lost at home to an Italian team once in 17 occasions, although the sole defeat was also the most recent, 3-0 to Juventus in 2020.
This is a huge one for Barca. After spending all that money, they simply have to progress to the last 16 of the Champions League. Lose and they're out. Inter come into this one having won their last two and will be confident of getting a result at Camp Nou.
The teams are in the tunnel at Camp Nou!
Kick-off is just five minutes away!

Xavi admitted in his pre-match press conference that Barcelona have no margin for error against Inter.

“It is a final, and we have no margin for error. With the help of the fans, we hope there will be a magical night. We must not lower our guard; there is talent, there is a desire for revenge, so we have to give everything so that the victory stays here. I would like to be a player tomorrow, I would rather be a player than a coach tomorrow. For me, it is a very good opportunity. We are motivated and hopeful.”
