Frankfurt produced a solid first half and got their reward three minutes after half-time when Ansgar Knauff put the home side in front.

Barca responded well, but the were forced to come up with something special to undo a tight Frankfurt side.

Some brilliant link-up play between Ferran Torres and Frenkie de Jong saw Barca equalise in the 66th minute.

After a neat one-two, Torres slotted the ball home with a neat finish across his body. Frankfurt went on to have a man sent off when Tuta received a second yellow card in the 78th minute But Barca couldn’t take full advantage and will return to Camp Nou on level terms ahead of next week’s
second leg.
