Real Madrid went ahead on the scoreboard at minute 9 after an own goal by Ronald Araújo after a shot by Vinicius Jr.

Subsequently, FC Barcelona tied with one of the youth academy, Sergi Roberto, who masterfully executed a ball seconds before the end of the first half.

Real Madrid persisted and came close to extending their lead but a Marco Asensio goal was disallowed after a VAR review ruled it offside.

After the statutory 90 minutes had elapsed, the referee ordered a 5-minute discount, and in that time slot came the collective madness unleashed by Kessié.
