90+8' Malaga desperately head the ball out from the corner.
90+6' WHAT A SAVE AGAIN! Neymar sends in a cross and Kameni charges to deny a shot from Gomes and continues forward to block the rebound as well. Heroic stuff from the keeper!
90+5' Barcelona players are livid as Fornals immediately goes down with cramp as soon as his number goes up on the substitution board. Eventually Duda replaces him.
90+4' WHAT A SAVE! Carlos Kameni nearly makes a howler charging out to claim a cross, but he misreads it and has to backpedal and make a stunning save as Neymar heads the ball towards goal.
90+2' Malaga are putting their bodies on the line, sliding in to block multiple shots on the edge of the box.
90' Pique's over to 'encourage' Carlos Kameni to get up as soon as possible. Kameni is still getting treatment and howls of displeasure ring out at the Nou Camp as only 4 minutes of injury time are added on.
89' 10-man Malaga are on the verge of a fantastic result, which will be cheered massively in Madrid. Can Juande Ramos' side hang on? Boos ring out as Kameni goes down injured, with the Barcelona bench incensed as well.
87' Miguel Torres heads out Rakitic's early cross from the right and Barcelona amp up the pressure with another corner. From the set-piece, Barcelona eventually work the ball to Neymar on the left and he chips the ball to the far post. Arda Turan gets his head on the ball, but the referee blows for a foul by the Turkish midfielder.
85' BARCELONA SCREAM FOR A PENALTY! Pique is wrestled to the ground as he is tugged by Villanueva, as the centre-back looks favourite to get to the ball ahead of Kameni in the box. The referee, incorrectly waves play on, much to the Nou Camp's displeasure, who make it known. It's getting LOUD in the stadium now!
83' There's a kitchen sink on the pitch, as Barcelona throw everything at Malaga. HOW HAVE THEY NOT SCORED? Andre Gomes gets ahead of Kameni and heads a cross towards goal but it ricochets off the crossbar and falls to Pique, who puts it in from an offside position.
82' WHAT A CHANCE! Rakitic glances a corner from the left with a super header that flies inches wide of the far post. Barcelona are getting closer, and closer. Can Malaga hang on? Somewhere, Florentino Perez bites his nails nervously.
81' Sandro comes off to warm applause from the Camp Nou crowd. He's been rather quiet tonight.
80' CHANCE! Pique heads the ball over the bar from a left wing cross.
79' Pique is very high up the pitch, he's almost partnering Alcacer up front. Barca earn another free-kick and as the ball is sent into the box, Pique fouls Kameni while challenging for the ball, with the referee blowing for a foul on the keeper.
78' SHOT! Neymar tries his best with a powerful free-kick, but it flies well over the bar.
77' Neymar charges towards the box and is taken out Pablo Fornals from behind and the referee gives Barca a free-kick in a promising position. Too bad Messi is busy vomiting, eh?
75' Rakitic comes on to replace Busquets as Barcelona go in search of the goal they need for a win.
73' OH MY GOD! Neymar with a supreme piece of skill leaves the Nou Camp gasping in awe. Near the left byline, Rosales is all over Neymar from behind, but the Brazilian chips it over the Malaga defender and evades another marker with a stepover before charging into the box. He tries another trick, but Villanueva is wise to it and nicks the ball off him, hacking the ball clear as Malaga breathe a sigh of relief.
71' CHANCE! Rafinha heads the ball over the bar under no pressure in the box, except from his teammate Andre Gomes who also charged at the same ball from the corner.

68' Llorente is sent off for a crude hack on Neymar, with his feet dangerously high up in the air as he slid in
66' Malaga are holding firm at the back. Rafinha, Arda Turan and Sergi Roberto combine well on the right wing, eventually laying the ball off to Busquets, who sends an aimless ball into the box. Predictably, Malaga clear their lines with ease.
63' SAVE! Pique wrestles with his marker at the far post and heads the set-piece towards Kameni, who collects the ball. Luis Enrique is absolutely livid on the touchline as he thinks Pique was fouled.
62' TERRIBLE CHALLENGE FROM ONTIVEROS! Neymar dribbles past a couple of challenges with some sweet footwork and before he can charge into the box, Ontiveros slides into him from behind and earns a booking. Barca have a free kick in a tempting position on the left wing.
59' SHOT! Rafinha shoots optimistically at the Malaga goal, but the shot takes a deflection and earns Barcelona a corner. Malaga deal well with the subsequent delivery into the box, and hold out as Barca recycle the ball. The move ends with Pique going down rather easily in the box after Miguel Torres challenges him, but the referee waves play on.
57' HOW DID HE MISS?! WHAT A CHANCE FOR MALAGA! Juanpi produces a lovely slide rule pass to send Juankar clear, and he does well to take the ball past Ter Stegen, but shoots wide of an open net while off-balance.
55' AMAZING! Ricca clatters into Arda Turan in the box as they challenge for a cross, and it looks a surefire penalty after the referee whistles. Stunningly, he gives a free kick against Barcelona's Turkish maestro
53' CHANCE! Rafinha flicks the ball over the top for Neymar, who runs clear of the Malaga backline and produces a back-pedalling header straight into Kameni's grateful arms. It wouldn't have mattered much, as the Brazilian was offside.
51' Pique slides in to deny Ontiveros from crossing on the right wing, but the Spanish centre-back concedes a corner. Malaga waste the set-piece chance by taking it short which results in an eventual shot from distance that's well over the bar.
50' SHOT! Neymar cuts inside from the left wing and shoots a curling shot aimed at the far post with the instep of his right foot, but the Brazilian doesn't get much power on it, and Kameni collects the ball.
49' Rafinha takes a corner and Mascherano gets his head onto the ball at the near post, but his effort flies well over the bar. Kameni takes an absolute age to take the resulting goal-kick, which has the Camp Nou crowd none-too-pleased.
47' Superb defending! Mikel Villanueva looks like he's allowed Neymar to get past him in the box, but just as the Brazilian is about to take a shot on goal, the Malaga defender stretches out a leg and nicks the ball off Neymar's toes.
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Malaga get us underway in the second half
45' 1 minute of added time

44' CHANCE! Barcelona pass their way around the Malaga backline and Digne cuts the ball back to Busquets in acres of space on the edge of the box. However, much to everyone's expectation, the midfielder blasts his shot well over the bar.
