Will Juventus throw caution to the wind and try to win it late on? Or will they fancy their chances at Olympiakos and be content with a point here?

77' 

Barca looking the more likely here.

76' 

Douglas Costa throwing himself to the turf after battling for the ball with Pique. Not much in it. Juve wanting something, anything. The Italians haven't really looked likely.

As it stands, Matchday Six will be interesting in this group. Barca, already assured of top spot, would host Sporting needing a win. Juve would travel to Olympiakos knowing they would finish second if they match or better the Portuguese side's result at the Nou Camp.

63' 

Messi lines up a 30 yard free kick but his curving strike doesn't dip enough and flies just over the bar,

60' 
59' 

Busquets heads clear after Barca struggled to deal with a left-wing cross. It falls for Dybala's whose speculative volley deflects behind.

58' 

Messi has 19 goals in 23 outings for club and country this season. Is this the night to break into the 20s?

57' 

Douglas Costa surges through the gears and feeds Dybala, but the Argentine's flick is too cute and doesn't find Higuain.

A neat move from the hosts. Douglas Costa's burst ups the tempo before Cuadrado exchanges a one-two with Dybala before firing his volley horribly over the top.

36' 

A tad harsh.

This certainly has the feel of a match where both sides know they are in the driving seat in terms of qualifying from the group.
