We've got our first booking of the Champions League match between Bayer Leverkusen and Barcelona, and unsurprisingly it goes to the hosts. The ball pops loose on the Leverkusen right and Daniel Schwaab slides in to clear, only to see Eric Abidal get there first. The left back ends up getting wiped out and Craig Thompson has little option but to wave a yellow card in Schwaab's direction.
The free kick is well worked by Barcelona, with Lionel Messi and Dani Alves trying an elaborate long-range one-two but Schwaab gets a flick on Alves's searching diagonal and juuuust about manages to avert the danger. However, with Leverkusen posing absolutely no threat on the ball, it just looks like a matter of time until Bernd Leno's guard is breached. The hosts simply cannot allow Barcelona to attack nonstop, because they will break through at some point. Hopefully we see some more positivity soon.
