Barcelona responded with a goal, but the referee disallowed the goal, signalling a foul in the attack. The fact that Suarez broke the rules on the Cloud, which said the judge. Overall, Barcelona was added to the end of the half and a few opportunities created. It is worth noting a dangerous kick from the penalty — Cloud pulled the ball from under the crossbar.
