  • Barcelona 6 Celtic 1. The exhibition comes to an end and the hosts emerge victorious. Barca go through as group winners, Celtic are left to focus on domestic duties.

  • Almost a second for Celtic. Samaras in behind Pique and gets around Pinto. His effort is on target, but is bundled behind by the retreating Pique. Corner comes to nothing.

  • Celtic win a goal kick as a promising Barcelona move breaks down. Again, Forster looks tired as he takes.

  • Celtic looking for more, with Commons on the charge. He drills low at Pinto, who can only parry. The rebound breaks agonisingly wide of Commons' boot.

  • GOAL CELTIC - SAMARAS. The visitors get their reward. Commons tripped again on the right and Mulgrew whips over a dangerous free-kick which Samaras nods home.

  • Pique drills across the field, but Adriano doesn't look to hit the by-line, Celtic battle away and get the ball back. Stokes and Boerrigter combine, with the ball then spread right towards Commons. Celtic win a throw.

  • Adriano striding down the left, but his cross is cut out by Lustig. Tello gathers and finds Xavi. Ole stuff from the hosts now. Agony almost over for Celtic.

  • Mulgrew does do into the box this time. The ball is touched on by Commons, but glanced into the path of Stokes who has drifted offside. Sums up Celtic's night.

  • Stokes able to turn in midfield. He goes left to Samaras. Celtic keeping the ball now, but Barca are offering little resistance. Commons takes over and is tripped by Adriano.

  • Commons wins a free-kick wide on the Celtic right. Opportunity to try and snatch something for the visitors. Mulgrew plays the set-piece square. Odd choice as Brown is immediately closed down. Ball finally worked to Commons, but he has no space in which to work.

  • Final change made by Lennon. Matthews is replaced by Stokes. Been a tough night for those at the back for Celtic.

  • Neymar offered a standing ovation as he is withdrawn. Promising youngster Dongou, who netted on his debut at the weekend, is sent on his place.

  • Celtic lump the ball forward for Boerrigter to challenge for. He ends up charging into Mascherano.

  • Best piece of possession for Celtic ends on a downer as Ledley trickles a tame effort straight at Pinto. Barca spring down the other end of the field and win yet another corner.

  • Song found 30 yards from goal. He plays a wayward pass to Commons. Samaras gets a rare touch, but there is no way through for him. Celtic look to go left, but Barca drag men back. Oles from the travelling contingent.

  • Matthews left with little choice but to put a ball into the box behind for a corner. Set-piece played short, and then backwards. Celtic can step up a yard, but are then back-tracking as Pique forces another corner.

  • Flag stays down and Pedro is in behind. He squares for Neymar, who tries a fancy flick. Doesn't come off as the ball is deflected to safety. Tello gathers, but is outmuscled by Van Dijk inside the box.

  • Forster happy to take a long time with a goal kick. Celtic in no rush to give Barcelona the ball back. They soon have it, though, with Tello pulling it out of the air.

  • Xavi gives the ball away, but Van Dijk gives Barcelona it back. Quick feet again from Neymar offer him a sight of goal. This time he drills too close to Forster, who can save with his feet.

  • Song has been sent on for Barcelona. Busquets the man to make way. Not a bad replacement to have on the bench!
