FT: Real Madrid created some good chances and opened the scoring with their first real chance of the second-half when Piqué diverted a Marcelo cross into his own-net, following a corner before Carvajal was denied by Alba on the goal-line.

HT: So will it be Barcelona or Real Madrid to open the scoring? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: Both sides have got into some promising positions but have lacked the cutting-edge in the final-third. They have to be more clinical in front of goal with the chances they create in the second-half as they won’t want to rue their missed chances against their opposition, who will be eager to capitalise. Messi hasn’t really worried Madrid thus far and his Barcelona teammates will need to provide him with better service. Madrid need to provide Benzema with better service, he’s look isolated up front by himself. Los Blancos have Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench and he may be summoned if the performance fails to improve. Both sides will be eager to take some kind of advantage for the second-leg at the Bernabéu.
HT: Real Madrid created some good chances and went close when Kovačić fired an effort from-range that tested Ter Stegen before Casemiro fired an effort from-range that produced a comfortable save from Ter Stegen. Bale then fired a first-time effort at-goal that Ter Stegen palmed behind before the Welshman headed over the bar.
HT: Barcelona created some good chances and went close when Suárez latched onto a cross-field pass before firing an effort at-goal that Navas saved well before Messi curled a freekick just over the bar.
HT: So we’re goalless at the break with nothing to separate the two sides.
