Both Barça and Tottenham are classified and the 1-1 meant to reach Bayern München record of 29 matches unbeaten in the Champions League. FCBarcelona is unbeaten since May 2013.

Tottenham needed a win in the Camp Nou to be classified for the next round if they did not want to depend on Inter's result. However, the Italians tied, and when Lucas Moura scored the 1-1, the English were also classified as FCBarcelona did last matchwee. So Ernesto Valverde used to match to give minutes to players like Jasper Cillessen, Thomas Vermaelen, Juan Miranda, Munir El Haddadi o Carles Aleñá. Although Barça played with most of the reserves, they compete at a high level and they could even win. 

Ousmane Dembélé has been the main topic of the week after his great match against Espanyol and because he fell asleep the next day. The club punished him and he was told off. But, Valverde selected him and the French did not disappoint. In the minute 7, he made an incredible solo goal. He recovered the ball in a counter attack from the middle of the pitch and he started to run. He was faster than Walker-Peters and left him behind to enter in the penalty area. There, he managed to brake suddenly with another dribble and beat Lloris to give Barça a lead. 

Tottenham needed at least a goal, so the English started to play rampant. But they shocked against Jasper Cillessen. In the first half, he denied Son the tie with his left leg. And in the second half, he parried from the goal line a heading that seemed to be the 1-1. However, Lucas Moura could beat him in when Harry Kane assisted him.

Barça could even win, but Coutinho smashed his shot against the post. Leo Messi appeared in the last minutes, but he could just try a free-kick that did not surprise Lloris. Finally, the 1-1 satisfied both teams. Tottenham with the classification and Barça because the main players could rest, the reserves had a great chande and the club reach a great record of 29 matches unbeaten in the Camp Nou during the Champions League.
