He had one with his right foot seconds ago, this time is was the left. Just too high again from the Pole. VAR has reviewed the Camavinga penalty shout and ruled Araújo didn’t commit a foul. Barça race up the other end and Lewandowski shoots just over from the edge of the box!
It’s official, a goalie of ter Stegen’s calibre ought to have stopped Bellingham’s shot. Though I’m not an expert in goalkeeping, it appears like he attempted the shot with the incorrect hand.
The ball jumps up and rebounds off Rüdiger’s palm, allowing him to control it as the final man. Rüdiger escapes with one there. Nothing is offered, and the referee claims he was powerless to intervene.
Again, lovely stuff by Cancelo! Once again, he deceives Camavinga and darts off to the right. His cross is cut out by Kepa, though, before it reaches two teammates in the middle.
Fermín struck the post after an error from Kroos, who redeemed himself with a crucial interception to stop Balde from getting a shot away in the box. Fermín also blazed over from range when he perhaps should’ve done better, and Carvajal’s last-ditch tackle prevented Félix from racing away.
Real Madrid have seen their fair share of the ball but have created preciously little. Marc-André ter Stegen has had little to do, with Rüdiger’s long-range effort, which flew wide, the only time he looked momentarily worried.
Tempers began to flare towards the end of the half, with Xavi and Vinícius going head to head, which could be something to keen an eye on in the second half.
