90+2' Almost! Sergi Roberto nearly finds Alcacer running through with a cross from the right wing, but Granada intercept the ball. As the visitors counter, Barral sends in a low cross into the box, and Ter Stegen collects the ball.
90' 3 minutes of stoppage time to be added on.
89' They cannot. A poor delivery forces the visitors to go all the way back to their keeper. Moments later, Alcacer produces a wonderful through ball to Messi, but he blasts over when faced by Ochoa.
88' Granada have a free-kick on the right wing. Can they steal a point?
87' Ruben Vezo and Neymar get into an altercation and both are duly booked. Foolish.
83' Paco Alcacer comes on to replace an angry Luis Suarez.
82' WHAT A MISS! Mascherano finds Suarez in the box with a gorgeous chipped ball into the box, and the Uruguayan heads it straight at Ochoa. A big chance that he will regret if Granada get an unlikely equaliser.
79' WHAT A RUN! Neymar bursts past Agbo's challenge in his own half before running down the left wing and then cutting inside. He is crudely chopped down by David Lomban and the Granada defender goes into the book. Messi steps up to take the free-kick...and its straight into the wall.
76' Sergi Samper, on loan from Barcelona, comes on to replace an injured Jon Toral. He gets a warm reception from the Camp Nou crowd.
75' Neymar plays a delicious pass with the outside of his foot to Neymar, and he chips the ball to Andre Gomes in the box, but he his crowded out.
73' Poor. Messi chips the free-kick forward to Neymar on the left wing, but his pass is overhit.
73' Jon Toral goes into the book for a sliding tackle on Neymar. Very unlike his Arsenal / La Masia education.
72' David Barral comes on to replace Artem Kravets
71' Denis Suarez comes off to be replaced by Andre Gomes
69' Its a testament to Granada that Barcelona's pass accuracy tonight is 77%. It is not a testimony to Granada that their own pass accuracy is 52%
82,914 fans have crammed into the Camp Nou in the 1500th game to take place in the stadium.
66' WHAT A WASTE! Boga is sent clear down the left wing and has to dally as Kravets is foolishly running offside despite being about 5 yards clear. Boga cuts inside and shoots wide of the near post.
63' WHAT A SAVE! Sergi Roberto bursts down the right wing as Barcelona counter and sends in a cross to Neymar who had run clear of the Granada defence. The Brazilian is faced with Ochoa and shoots at goal, but the Mexican keeper blocks his shot as it loops over the bar.
60' Pereira goes off to be replaced by Chelsea loanee Jeremie Boga
59' Messi's delivery isn't the best, and Granada clear with ease.
58' Brilliant from Suarez! The Uruguayan does well to burst into the box, but his cross is blocked, eventually finding its way to Neymar on the opposite wing. He earns a free kick for a kick out by Carcela
56' There are some real concerns over the pitch as the top soil seems to be giving way quite often. Pereira is the latest to get his feet stuck and slip.
54' Digne has the Camp Nou crowd gasping in awe as he controls a long diagonal, and then bamboozles his marker with a neat touch to run into the box. His attempt at a cross is denied though.
Rafinha has scored five goals from just six shots in La Liga this season (five on target).
52' A great tackle from Ruben Vezo to deny Neymar from charging through down the left. He's been great tonight and was not at fault for the goal.
48' OFFSIDE! Carcela is a yard offside as Jon Toral plays an intelligent through ball from the right wing.
46' The same pattern of play as Granada sit deep and intercept a chipped ball to Sergi Roberto making an overlapping run. Silva plays the ball forward to Kravets, but they can't make the ball stick.
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Barcelona get us underway in the second half! No changes on either side.
The teams have exited the tunnel. Kickoff in the second half is moments away!
The second half is minutes away. Stay tuned.
Granada have kept their first clean sheet in a first half of a La Liga away game this season.
45' Cuenca concedes a free-kick with his former academy mate Rafinha, and that is the last action of the half.
44' Granada have a chance with a free-kick in Barcelona's half. Pereira wastes the chance with a strike straight into Neymar after Granada take it short.
42' Granada waste another great chance on the counter! Silva plays a great ball forward to Pereira, and he also chips the ball forward to Kravets with only 1 defender ahead of him, but his touch and subsequent pass to an onrushing Carcela is poor.
40' Barcelona take the corner short, and make a mess of it, with MSN contriving to lose possession.
39' A great clearance from Vezo, as the on-loan Valencia defender clears a cross from the right with Suarez lurking behind him.
