...
89' 4-2 GAME OVER! ANDRE GOMES SCORESS! Neymar puts it on plate for him after running the length of the pitch!
...
86' Messi booked and he will miss the next game. Was it on purpose so that he gets a rest? Their next game is against Granada after the international break
...
85' Neymar's curler over the bar! But a scintillating run from Messi to go past literally half the team. In the end he overran it but still beautiful to watch
...
84' Valencia have done well to keep it to 3-2 with just 10 men. A third goal for the visitors now will change things drastically at both the top and bottom of the table
...
81' 10 minutes to go and it's still just the one goal separating these two
...
72; HOW DID SUAREZ MISS A SITTER?? Messi beats two defenders inside the box and shoots from a tight angle. Unfortunately, Suarez couldn't be on the same wavelenght as him and mistimed his run into the box thus missing a tap in!
...
71' The chances keep coming as it is relentless Barca pressure
...
70' Iniesta overhits a pass... He is human after all
...
68' Iniesta gets a yellow for a cynical foul on Enzo Perez
...
66' THIS TIME RAFINHA MISSING AN OPPORTUNITY AFTER BEING SQUARED BY MESSI! His shot from just outside the box straight at Alves
...
64' NEYMAR WIITH A CROSS/SHOT! Messi, Suarez and Iniesta combining beautifully to set up Neymar who goes for power what looks like a shot but it was a very heavy cross which Messi and Suarez could not get to
...
62' Barca still probing trying to find the perfect pass to score! But they have to be wary of Valencia's counter
...
57' A furious two minutes of play on both ends of the pitch! First, Suarez tries the spectacular Bicycle kick and completes misses, which leads to a counter for Valencia. Munir only had Pique and the keeper to beat but could not get the better of his former teammate. Then Rakitic tries to square Messi in the box but the ball is just too far
...
54' It's going to be a long second half for Valencia unless they can surprise the Catalans again and get  another equaliser
...
54' After making that wonderful save from the corner Barca recycle and the ball finds it way to the Argentine's feet who buries it on Alves' near post! No stoppping that even if had his near post perfectly covered
...
53' MESSI SCORES!! 3-2 Valencia's resistance did not last long! 
...
52' NEYMAR DENIED BY A BRILLIANT SAVE! Messi picks out the Brazilian with a beautiful pass keeping him just onside but Alves equal to the effort!
...
51' Neymar again tricks his way into the box and tries to set up Messi but the defenders gang up and clear before he can completely get it under control and shoot
...
49' Neymar swivels away from one defender and then unleashes a fast drive which is blocked by Garay.It has only been 4 minutes but Valencia have already defended at least 7 Barca attacks
...
48' Neymar wins the first corner of the second half Quickly taken but Iniesta's follow-up cross is blocked. Barca still have the ball
...
46' Valencia are down to 10 men but that goal just before halftime would give them some confidence. But stopping Barcelona for 45 minutes with 10 men is a herculean task
...
And we are back underway
...
Well after that very weird half of football Barca are Valencia players are back onto the pitch.
...
46' WHAT'S JUST HAPPENED!? FROM THE KICKOFF VALENCIA SCORE!! IT'S 2-2!!!! A ball behind the defence who were asleep finds Gaya who justs squares it for Munir to tap it home! No celebration as a mark of respect from the little Spaniard! And that's HALF TIME!
...
45' MESSI SCORES!!!! 2-1 BARCA!! Right down the middle, Alves dives to his left and Messi kept his cool to just stroke it down the middle!
...
44' The Frenchman pulled back Suarez after he was through on goal and he immediately walks off without any complaints
...
44' PENALTY TO BARCA! RED CARD TO MANGALA!
...
42' Suarez makes a lung-bursting run to try and keep a ball in play and at first glance, it looks like he managed to cut it back but the ball had crossed the line! Great effort from the Uruguayan though!
...
40' MESSI JUST OVER THE BAR! It's a zipping effort with tons of pace but it had too much height
...
38' OOOH BAD TACKLE ON MESSI FROM MANGALA!! The Argentine is back on his feet but he's going to feel that tomorrow. The Frenchman gets a yellow card and now Barca have a chance to take the lead. The usual suspects over this
...
38' Messi getting blocked and tackled more than usual in this game
...
36' Neymar from the throw in finds Suarez who had made a run behind and then opens his body up and slots it cooly into the corner with his right foot! Great finish
...
35' SUAREZ SCORESS!!!! 1-1 VALENCIA CAUGHT SLEEPING!
...
33' Barca need a response and fast
...
30' The Frenchman rises the highest and beats both Busquets and Rakitic in the air to score giving Ter Stegen no chance. The Camp Nou was already quiet and now the silence is deafening!
...
29' VALENCIA SCORE!! IT's MANGALA!!! 1-0 to the visitors!
...
28' MUNIR SCUFFS A GREAT CHANCE TO SCORE! One long ball upfield from Alves and he got Munir a one on one situation but  Pique just about gets back and clears
...
26' Neymar goes down in the box looking for a penalty. The referee points to a spot. There was minimal contact on him and he was looking for it. But he does not get booked for diving. He is a lucky boy
...
24' Neymar fouled by Perez after leaving him for dead with sublime skill. He is booked for his troubles
