Luis Enrique rotates the squad
Not the greatest of matches for Barcelona at Leverkusen. Luis Enrique used a different XI, resting Luis Suarez and with only Leo Messi and Ivan Rakitic as the usual starters in attack. Leverkusen could have won by a couple of goals, but Ter Stegen denied the locals one time after another. If the Germans had scored one goal more, they would have qualified for the round of sixteen.
Barcelona scored first with an excellent goal from Leo Messi. Ivan Rakitic with the assist.
Leverkusen reacted in the first half. Chicharito with a great shot with the left foot.
