  • End of 2nd Half
90+2' 

BARCELONA ARE THROUGH TO THE SEMI-FINALS. Full time. That's it. Barcelona found it easy, as they should have after United made it so easy for them in the first half. Messi looked occasionally brilliant, Coutinho scored a superb third, but Liverpool don't need to be scared.

90+1' 

Two minutes of added time are indicated.

90'

Sanchez flies in at the near post to meet - I think - Dalot's cross, and Ter Stegen pulls off the save of the match to strike away his header at the near post, down to his left.

89' 

Suarez tries to chip De Gea, but he's no Wayne Rooney, and it floats over the bar.

86' 

Sanchez curls in a return pass for Pogba into the box, but Rakitic lunges back to hook the ball away from danger.

84' 

Suarez gives some lip to the referee after getting a decision in his favour. What a specimen.

83' 

United have the ball back on the left of defence, and give it away promptly.

79'

Lingard has a rare chance for United, as he runs slightly away from goal before space opens up in front of him, and he pings in a shot just over the bar.

Suarez is penalised for handling after falling over. I'm sure it's culturally acceptable to do that in Uruguay, so really, isn't he the wronged party?

73' 

Rashford is the one withdrawn. He's not shown much so far, but none of them have, really.

Messi tries an overhead kick after Jones' header to cut out a cross simply tees him up by dinking it into the box, send it a couple of yards wide.

GOAL! Barcelona 3-0 Manchester United. Coutinho scores - Messi lifts the ball forward, it's dinked back to Coutinho, and he scores a Liverpool-era screamer into the top corner.

60' 

Pogba on the left cuts a cross inside, and it's out for a goal kick.

59' 

Barcelona sweep forward, so the calamitous Jones falls to the ground after a foul from Suarez and somehow wins the ball again. Suarez claims he is the victim when he is penalised, which is something he has done a lot in the past.

57' 

Pobga hoiks it long for Rashford, Barcelona break as Messi tees up Coutinho, but United get it away.

56' 

Coutinho, now Alba, dinked into Messi who cushions a tempting ball into the path of Suarez, but De Gea rushes out to claim.

55' 

Here is the UK's very best football journalist.

54' 

Martial wins a corner on the left. Swung in, and headed away. Pogba has it on the right and he can't find he way past two markers. United keep it moving after he releases it.

53' 

Messi whips in a free kick for De Gea to claim.

52' 

McTominay bundles over Messi in the corner. He concedes a foul.

51' 

Messi forces Fred into conceding a corner on the left. Coutinho takes, and it's headed away at the near post. It's played back to Ter Stegen, who passes to his right as he revolutionises goalkeeping.

49' 

Coutinho plays it wide for Alba, but Barcelona are happy to turn back to their defence and keep the ball, perhaps forever.

47' 

Messi has a shot deflected just wide of goal as United start as you might expect - badly.

  • End of 1st Half
45+2' 

That's half time. I will see you in 15 minutes for a redundant second passage.

45+1'

Sergio Roberto gets on the end of a thrilling coutner-attack at the far post, and De Gea somehow repels the shot when he looked set to bounce it into the goal, but it bounces away.

44' 

Rashford drills it into the wall. That wasn't really very good at all, and now Barcelona can break.

43' 

Martial skittles down the left, then plays it off to Lingard. United move it inside to Fred, who finds Pogba and he's tripped about 25 yards from goal by Rakitic. He should be booked, but he's not.

41' 

Here's a picture.

39' 

Rashford finds Martia, he gets it back, and he drives to the byline and almost gets his pullback to Pogba, but it's cut out.

38' 

Young finds Rashford down the left, it's worked to Pogba, and he drills a well-hit shot at goa from distance, but bounces at a reasonable height into the arms of Ter Stegen.

36' 

Pogba is told off for a fairly ratty challenge on Arthur, who was breaking down the middle.

35'

Fred runs down the heels of Rakitic, bringing him to the ground for a free kick about 40 yards out. Messi takes, and whips an effort a couple of yards over.

34' 

Barca have the ball, constantly. That's pretty much the next 56 minutes.

32' 

Here's Paddy Power, not understanding context.

31' 

United are chasing the ball across the park, and I have just remembered Lingard is on the pitch. Not because he's done anything!

28' 

Barcelona don't seem to fancy scoring right now. I'm sure when they do they'll go up the other end and knock one in.

26'

Messi juggles the ball at the near post, and leathers a shot just over the near post. He's pretty good. 6/10

24' 

Barcelona are playing a series of three-yard passes amongst one another, and they have the skill to do that forever regardless of how tightly they are marked.

21' 

It won't be a cricket score. It might be a rugby one though.

Barcelona, apparently, are unbeaten in their last 30 Champions League home ties.

13' 

Suarez finds Roberto, who plays it back to Mess, and the the whole nonsense carries on until Alba's cross to Suarez is headed away by Jones at the last minute.

12' 

No penalty. I would be using an exclamation point but only the unbelievably incompetent co-commentator actually thought it was a foul. I won't name him.

11' 

PENALTY! Rakitic goes down in the box after Fred kicks the ball and Rakitic runs into the midfielder. VAR is checking...

10' 

Smalling concedes a corner on the left. Headed out by Pogba, and United try to break. It's very English from United, and they lose the ball...

9' 

Pogba shoots from the halfway line, which reflects his ego.

8' 

Messi lifts a pass into box that Jones chests out for a corner on the left. Suarez is given the ball on the right, but his fierce cross to the back post is headed away.

7' 

Pogba plays it out left to Martial, he jinks in side and whacks a low, curling shot at goal for Pique to cut out.

6' 

Rakitic throws himself to the ground after Fred moves while near him.

4' 

A corner from United is low and to the near post, poorly cleared. United have it back, and Pogba scoops a pass to nobody.

2' 

Some quick passing from United gives McTominay a chance to burst through the centre, but he miscontros and the ball runs away from him, and danger.

1'

Wowzers. Pogba floats a pass into the path of Rashford down the inside left on the counter, and he toe punts a rising shot dangerously over the bar.

United trail to a Luke Shaw own goal from the first leg, and they have little chance here. They were poor against West Ham at the weekend, and they have been poor for the last two months.

19:30 

What an odd season Manchester United are having. They buy Fred for £50 million ahead of Manchester City. He looks dreadful under Jose Mourinho, and then turns up against PSG and bang! In with Scott McTominay - yeah - and Paul Pogba against Barcelona in a Champions League quarter-final.
