Barcelona vs Porto live score, updates, lineups, and result from the Champions League

Barcelona are looking to slay some recent Champions League demons by qualifying for the knockout stages for the first time in three years when they host Porto.

The two sides are level on nine points apiece at the top of Group H and Barca will reach the Round of 16 if they are able to back up the 1-0 win they claimed at Estadio do Dragao on matchday two.

However, a defeat by the same scoreline to Shakhtar Donetsk last time out carried a lot of the hallmarks of the Blaugrana’s recent setbacks on the European stage.

It will be interesting to see how Xavi’s youthful side respond, especially with goalkeeper Marc Andre ter Stegen ruled out.

Barcelona vs Porto live updates, highlights, and commentary

55 mins prior to kickoff: This is how the visitors line up. Barca’s old tormentor Pepe has made it!

1 hour 5 mins prior to kickoff: Here’s the Barca XI. Raphinha joins Robert Lewandowski and Joao Felix in the front three.

1 hour 20 mins prior to kickoff: Confirmed team news will be with us shortly. Former Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez is likely to be involved in some capacity for Porto. The 21-year-old joined the Portuguese giants in an €8.5 million deal over the summer and has made 12 appearances across all competitions, although his three in the Champions League have all been from the bench.

1 hour 40 mins prior to kickoff: Three wins out of three had Barcelona sailing serenely into the last-16, with Xavi’s youthful side putting the club’s European hurt of recent seasons behind them. However, the 1-0 loss at Shakhtar carried all the hallmarks of bad Barca. Lots of possession, not a lot of penetration and beaten by opponents who seemed to want it that little bit more. Win tonight and they’re through, making the defeat last time out a footnote. Lose and Porto would take top spot, meaning things might just get a little hairy.
