Barcelona have taken command of Group G in the UEFA Champions League after a convincing 2-0 win at a Cristiano Ronaldo-less Juventus on Wednesday as part of Matchday 2.
Ousmane Dembele scored in the first half, Juventus defender Merih Demiral was shown a red card late and Lionel Messi converted a penalty kick in stoppage time to put it away.
Ronaldo missed the game due to his coronavirus diagnosis and it showed as Juve rarely threatened, and when they did they were offside.
Barca, on the other side, dominated all game long and should have put it away much earlier than they did, allowing Juve to stick around.
The victory gives Barca three points and a three-point lead atop the group with six. Juve are in second with three points of their own.
