FULL TIME Barcelona 6-1 Gijon
...
90' Two minutes of added time 
...
87' IVAN RAKITIC WALKS IN THE 6th!! Gomes and Roberto combine to set him up and Raktiic drills home the shot with tremondous power! That should be the icing on the cake
...
87' Last few minutes of the game. Barca still trying to add to their tally. 
...
82' Jordi Alba hits the post but he is called offside wrongly by the linesman
...
80' Barcelona have 10 minutes to tinker a little more. For Sporting it's 10 more minutes of suffering
...
78' LOVELY COMBINATION PLAY BETWEEN DENIS SUAREZ AND RAKITIC! The former backheels it into the path of the Croatian whose low drive to the right is just tipped behind by Cuellar!
...
75' Alcacer almost through on goal again, Neymar the provider but the Gijon defence get back just in time to clear
...
73' Gomes with his first meaningful contribution with an inside pass to Paco Alcacer but his first-time effort is blocked. Rafinha comes off for Sergi Roberto
...
72' Neymar tries an effort from distance but it's a very tame one
...
66' From that angle to put into the net takes pure genius and Neymar is exactly that! He gest it up and around the wall from the right-hand side of the box! Incredible finish!
...
66' NEYMAR MAKES IT 5!! BRILLIANT FREE-KICK!!
...
61' Leo Messi comes off and is replaced by Andre Gomes who has been one of the flops of the season so far. Can he impress this time around?
...
59' NOW I"VE SEEN IT ALL! AN AUDACIOUS FREEKICK ATTEMPT BY MESSI! HE JUST FLOATS THE BALL ABOVE THE WALL AND IT CLIPS THE TOP OF THE CROSSBAR. EVEN HIS OWN TEAMMATES ARE BAFFLED BY THAT ATTEMPT. JUST GENIUS!
...
59' Meanwhile it is a free-kick for Barca
...
58' The Leo Messi stats just don;t stop do they: Lionel Messi has now registered 62 #LaLiga assists since the start of 2012/13; at least 12 more than any other player Via Squawka
...
56' An observation about Busquets this season. He hasn't really had the influence he usually does in games. It might be because of the direct style of play Barca employ
...
56' Alcacer makes an intelligent run, Raktic finds him but the linesman flags for offside. 
...
55' Juan Rodriguez gets a yellow fouling you guessed it NEYMAR! The Brazilian can't catch a break!
...
53' Neymar fouled once again! Really showing why he is the most fouled player in La Liga. The Brazilian is just so hard to mark or tackle
...
51' That should be the game for Barca. Now it's a matter of how many more they can get
...
50' PACO ALCALER SCORES! What an introduction into the match. Lackluster defending once again and Messi sets up Alcacer for a simple finish
...
47' Paco Alcacer has come on for Luis Suarez A chance for the fringe player to make an impression 
...
We are back underway!
...
HALF TIME Barcelona 3-1 Gijon
...
Neymar booked for dissent!
...
44' At the other end Neymar has a great chance to make it 4-1 but once again can;t find the finish
...
42' GREAT EFFORT FROM BURGUI!! He makes Busquets and Mascherano look like standing dummies with two great pieces of skill and tests Ter Stegen who is at full stretch to deny his left-footed strike!
...
42' Barcelona have not lost a game in La Liga when Umtiti has started. So far that runs seems like it is going to continue
...
39' Suarez with an attempt from distance but not really testing Cuellar. Barca lacking ideas in the final third in the last few minutes
...
35' Was that a hand from Mascherano? While trying to slide in to stop Burgui from getting into the box it looked like it hit the Argentine's hand but on second viewing on the replay he just about avoided a very dicey situation
...
32' Despite the two-goal cushion Barcelona have started to switch off again at the back. Gijon players had a couple of half-chances to score but didn't take them
...
28' Rakitic loops a ball in from the edge of the box and Babin when there is no pressure around him tries to clear the ball but only manages to head it as far as Suarez who hits it first time with his right foot. It Richochet's off the bottom of the left-hand side crossbar and lands in the back of the net. Very similar to the one he scored against arsenal last year!
...
27' WHAT A STRIKE FROM SUAREZ!!! WOW THAT WAS A ROCKET VOLLEY!
...
25' Barca play it short and a tight interchange between the MSN trio inside the box leads to a corner! Neymar finds Rakitic but he completely misses his header
...
25' Too far out for a direct free-kick
...
24' Rafinha should have finished off that chance. Will that come back to haunt him! Meanwhile Messi is fouled!
...
Burgui finds Alvarez who makes a run behind the sleeping Barca defense. his cute finish hits the post but Castro is there to slot in the rebound and it's game on once again! That was very complacent from Barcelona
...
22' GIJON SCORE AT THE OTHER END!!! It's 2-1!! Barca caught out!
...
21' ALMOST THREE! Messi once again the provider with a blinding ball over the top to Rafinha on the right who puts too much power on the ball across the face of goal!
