The first five minutes of the second half have seen PSG dominate. Mbappe is looking very lively and had another chance, while Ter Stegen had to make a good save from a Moise Kean deflected shot. Koeman looks concerned on the sideline and rightly so.
Here’s the half time stats and the numbers say this has been a very even contest so far. The only real difference is when it comes to corners, as PSG have had six and Barcelona haven’t had any. Let’s see if they get one and if they can get Pique forward to mark his comeback with a goal.
We’ve had a PSG substitution at the break. Idrissa Gueye – who was very on a yellow – has been taken off and replaced by Ander Herrera. Let’s see how the Spaniard influences things in the second half.
It started so well for Barcelona as they took the lead, but PSG’s equaliser and late pressure means that the half time break comes at a good moment for the Blaugrana. We’ll see if either coach makes any substitutions, with Pochettino potentially looking to take off Idrissa Gueye before the referee makes that decision for him. It’s 1-1 at the Camp Nou at the break.
Idrissa Gueye is walking the metaphorical tightrope. Already on a yellow, he just delivered a hard foul on Busquets. Pardoned for now, he’s got to be careful. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him subbed off at half time.
