Barcelona failed to capitalize on home advantage as they went down by 3-0 after 67 minutes of play. The Cam Nou was filled to capacity with thousands of German fans to match the number of Barcelona fans.

The second half saw another good goal from Filip Kostic to put the game beyond Barcelona. Busquets goal to give them a life line was disallowed in the 84th minute.
