Barça started the game well and Robert Lewandowski fired narrowly over. The Pole looked to score his first goal for the club. But he left the field in the second half without a goal. Not yet.
Dembele ended the game with two great goals. The French winger, having seen Raphinha strike twice and set up two goals, decided to play catch-up with his rival for the right-wing spot.
It had been a disappointing opening half hour for Dembele. But then he scored a brilliant solo goal in the 34rd minute, coming in from the right.
Kean levelled for Juventus from close range in the 39th minute, but Dembele repeated his trick in the 40th to put Barcelona ahead.
At the start of the second half, Juventus managed to equalize. It was Kean again who fired past Inaki Pena.
Minutes later, Raphinha hit the bar with a free-kick. Furthermore, seconds later Ansu Fati followed suit, with a curling effort that also crashed into the woodwork in the same place.
At this stage more subs followed, subbing even those who had been subbed on, and the game petered out.
Memphis, who is in the shop window, came close late on but Barcelona could not find a winner.
One more game to go, in New York, and then Barça will head home.
