On the other side did Joel Matip a dangerous ball against his goalkeeper Alisson caprioleren, a moment later, something laconic remained for the onslaught of German strikers and a ziekenhuisbal deliver on Matip. Kingsley Coman could the fumbling not to punish. In the 23rd minute gave Bayern the ball is not way in the back after an attack by Liverpool, after which Alexander-Arnold, the head of Salah found. The Egyptian striker said, however, in addition to. On the half-hour was an attempt by Near Keita allowed to creep in, then the ball at a free-standing Sadio Mané to the penalty spot ended up. That was his shot, the ball rolled next to. Five minutes before the rustsignaal missed Matip is still an open chance when he failed a grondscherende ball in an empty goal to push. The rest had the home team the most opportunities collected, but goals were not.

Also after the break, went to Liverpool the gretigst looking to the lead, while the Rekordmeister remained mired in recession. The English aanvalslust went out, although after a good quarter of an hour, and then also the match to sleep. A quarter of an hour before the end if Divock Origi things in motion blowing with subbing, but he, too, was the tide, not reverse it. Ten minutes later signed Mané, however, for the greatest danger after peace, when his short corner, with a header, but Neuer had a great reflex in the house.

In Lyon, where Jason Denayer at the kick-off, appeared to the French, had Marc-Andre Ter Stegen for the first time to work after seven minutes at a shot distance of Houssem Aouar. Barely four minutes later, ranselde the goalkeeper with a great swipe of Martin Terrier from his carpenter’s square. Ten minutes after that forced Moussa Dembélé is a way through the French defence, until he came out goalkeeper Anthony Lopes collided. With peace in sight, ventured the French prodigy another chance from the edge of the sixteen, but his icicle whizzed right next to it.

Seven minutes in the second half allowed Memphis Depay has asserted itself with a shot, which is a gauge next to the frame flew. The home team put up a mak Barça firmly, with Mr. Lionel Messi no inches allowed. Just after the hour found the Spaniard, however, still space for a shot, but the angle was too sharp. In the 72nd minute had Luis Suarez the 0-1 at the foot a cross from Jordi Alba, but the Uruguayan put the leather next to the linkerpaal. In the castle, the visitors, the pressure is still on, and they knew Messi and co not continue with their frustration, because the Catalan visor was poorly adjusted.
