Full-time: Juventus 3-0 Barcelona

Luis Enrique's men have to do it all once again. A brace from the irresistible Paulo Dybala and a header from Giorgio Chiellini have given Juve a healthy three-goal cushion going into the second leg. Barcelona were abject and barely mustered a shot in anger.

They may have defied the odds in the first round, but the Blaugrana will really have to pull a rabbit out of the hat if they are to progress to the semi-finals.


Monaco have extended their full support to Dortmund in light of recent events.


Police praise supporters for leaving the stadium in an orderly manner.


An update from IBTimes columnist Oier Fano Dadebat about Bartra's condition: "Marc Bartra is already on his way home. Good news."


An earlier statement from Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Wtzke read: "Bartra was injured, on his hand and his arm, but nothing that would be life-threatening.

"The team is obviously in complete shock. Our task is to process this experience, because the match is taking place in less than 24 hours. That's our job."

Barcelona may need another miracle in the second leg at this rate. Chiellini heads past a hapless Ter Stegen from a corner.


Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has discussed what happened inside the bus when the explosions occurred.

"We left the hotel at 7:15 pm and went down the street. The bus turned to the main street, when there was a giant explosion," he told Blick.

"I was sitting in the back row next to Marc Bartra, who was hit by fragments.

"After the bang, we all ducked in the bus and who could, put on the ground. We did not know if more happened. The police were quick on the spot, they were safe. We're all shocked - nobody thought of a football match in the minute."

Second half has just started at the Juventus Stadium. Juve currently leading 2-0 thanks to a wondrous brace from Paulo Dybala. Barcelona have brought on Andre Gomes in place of Javier Mascherano at half-time.


A Borussia Dortmund official says it is 'a miracle' that only one person - Marc Bartra -suffered any injuries from the explosions.


Residents of Dortmund are offering their homes to Monaco supporters needing accommodation. People are using the hashtag #bedforawayfans to raise awareness, while both clubs have publicised the strategy.

Barcelona have the ball in the net through Messi but Suarez is adjudged offside in the build-up. A warning for Juve, who gave possession away very cheaply then.


Barcelona look aimless right now. Their passing is no way near as crisp as it can be, and Juve, apart from a wondrous through ball from Messi for Iniesta, have not been troubled at all.


Alves picks up a yellow card for a late and aggressive challenge on Iniesta.


Sandro raids down the left hand side and cuts the ball back for Dybala, who finds himself in acres of space. Like the first goal, 'La Joya' finds shifts his body weight excellently and fires a superb effort past Ter Stegen.

It could so easily have been 1-1 just seconds earlier, but now Juventus are very much in the driving seat.
