The Catalans got off to a dream start as Ousmane Dembele opened the scoring as he found the back of the net in the 14th-minute of the match. He scored from outside the penalty area to give the visitors the lead. Despite trailing early on, Juventus were aggressive and were dominating proceedings in the first half. So much so that Alvaro Morata scored before 30 minutes of the game, but the flag was up and the goal not counted.

Barcelona took the lead into half-time but would not have felt relieved knowing very well that Juve could strike back. That did not happen as no goals were scored in the second half, but in injury time, Messi finally opened his account via penalty, putting the final nail in the coffin for Juve.
With the win, Barca go top of Group G. They have six points from two games, while they are followed by Juventus – who have 3 points from two games.
Koeman agreed that his team had tried to put the boardroom issue out of their minds.
