2.      The ball will not fall for him! Busquets put the ball over the top of Lewandowski's control, but because the ball bounced high, he had to side-foot the ball over the goalkeeper's head and easily save it.

 

3.      Effort from Sanchez! From a narrow angle, his shot had Ter Stegen diving desperately to his right, pushing the ball beyond the target.

 

4.      LEE is close to the equalizer! He won a ball brilliantly inside the box, got the ball into space for himself, and then shot from a tight angle to beat Ter Stegen and also the far post.
