FT: Eibar 0-4 Barcelona
...
90+3' Credit to Eibar- they are still bursting forward for a goal, earning a corner, but are unable to make a clear cut chance.
...
90+1' Vidal is sent clear by Messi's layoff, and he sends a delicious low cross into the box. Alcacer does not stretch well enough to score, but Neymar collects it at the far post, takes a touch and then hammers a low drive into the net. Eibar 0-4 Barcelona
...
90+1' GOAL NEYMAR!
...
90' 3 minutes of added time - Let's hope the referee can count 180 seconds this time.
...
90' CLOSE! Enrich plays a lovely cross field pass to Escalante who had made a late run into the right side of the box, and he unleashes a first time volley on goal, that flies narrowly over the bar!
...
88' ALMOST! Messi plays the ball out wide to an overlapping Vidal, who floats the ball into the box. Neymar bamboozles his marker with his first touch, but Eibar recover to dispossess the Brazilian with multiple sliding tackles.
...
84' SHOT! Pedro Leon unleashes an absolute howziter that dips and swerves devilishly. Ter-Stegen is at full-stretch and stops the ball from flying into the net with an excellent save.
...
82' Cristian Rivera comes on to replace Antonio Luna
...
81' CHANCE! Enrich nearly gets past Mathieu in the box, only for the Barca defender to get back and clear the ball for a corner.
...
79' Neymar and Messi combine to release Rakitic down the right side of the box, but Yoel saves his shot across goal.
...
77' BRILLIANT! Capa sets off down Eibar's right yet again, but his delivery into the box is awkward. Enrich, however, has other ideas, and controls the ball brilliantly with his chest on the run, and then striking a first time volley at goal, which is blocked for a corner. Inui then comes off to be replaced by Ruben Pena - that's the sound of thousands of Japanese television sets being switched off.
...
76' Vidal charges down the right and with Eibar backtracking in a desperate fashion, the Barca fullback sends in a good cross that looks set to fall perfectly for Alcacer, only for Lejeune to clear the ball for a corner.
...
76' Luis Suarez comes off and is replaced by Paco Alcacer
...
73' GOAA... NOO! Messi plays Neymar through on the left, and Neymar runs past Yoel and is about to slot into an empty net, only for the linesman to flag for offside. That was an incorrect call, and Neymar should have had his goal.
...
71' Barcelona are really turning on the style now! Messi chips the ball into Suarez in the box, who unselfishly tries to set up Neymar, but Escalante intercepts with a diving block, that nearly loops into the net, only for Yoel to tip the ball now.
...
68' Luis Suarez steals the ball of Lejeune and bears down on goal. Yoel does well to charge down and narrow the angle, but Suarez produces an ingenious finish at the near post, slotting home into the bottom corner with a curling finish. Eibar 0-3 Barcelona
...
68' GOAL LUIS SUAREZ!
...
66' OOOH! Capa sends in a swerving cross that looks overhit, but takes an awkward bounce in the box and nearly squirms into the bottom corner. Ter Stegen reacts well to dive to his right and palm the ball away!
...
65' Concerning images for Barcelona, as Sergi Roberto cuts into some bandaging on his right foot on the bench. Another injury perhaps?
...
64' Aleix Vidal (Remember him?!) comes on to replace Sergi Roberto
...
63' Barcelona have the air of complacency in the last few minutes. Arda Turan sends Neymar through down the left wing, and he then produces a careless low cross into the box, that Eibar collect with glee.
...
59' Eibar attack down the right with Capa yet again. He sends in another tempting cross that Umtiti clears... to the feet of Adrian. He takes a touch and has the time to let fly with an accurate shot - only to send it straight down Ter Stegen's throat.
...
58' WAS THAT A YELLOW? The home fans are livid as Enrich is brought down by Mathieu while chasing a long ball, but the referee waves play on.
...
55' Eibar have been playing some wonderful stuff in the last few minutes - you really feel for them. They deserve to be in this game, but MSN are in the mood, and Barcelona will probably rack up some more goals.
...
53' GOA... NOOO! Capa does brilliantly on the right, pirouetting past two defenders to lay the ball off to Leon in the box. He pings in a cross to the far post - and Adrian sends a measured header into the top corner, only for the referee to disallow the goal for offside!
...
50' WHAT. A. GOAL. Messi picks the ball up in the centre circle and plays it wide to Suarez on the right. The Uruguayan responds with a delightful chip into the box, and Messi then produces a measured touch to just caress the ball past Yoel and into the net. This is art. Eibar 0-2 Barcelona.
...
50' GOAL LIONEL MESSI!
...
48' Not much action at the start of the second half, as Barcelona pass the ball around in their own half, sneaking a backpass in there occasionally. Louis van Gaal would have an earth-shattering orgasm looking at this spell of play.
...
*INJURY UPDATE* Sergio Busquets is apparently out for four weeks with an injury to the ligaments in his ankle.
...
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Eibar get us underway, kicking off from left to right.
...
The teams are out of the tunnel. Kick off in the second half is moments away!
...
HT: Eibar 0-1 Barcelona
...
45+1' OFF THE POST! Jordi Alba plays Suarez through with a gorgeous through ball. The Uruguayan shoots across Yoel, but watches in agony as the ball clatters off the post and trickles away! Strangely, the referee blows his whistle for half time having just played 1 minute of injury time, after signalling for 3 initially.
...
45' 3 minutes of injury time.
...
45' HOW DID HE MISS THAT?! Messi cuts inside from the left and leaves two defenders in his wake, before chipping a ball into an unmarked Arda Turan in the box. He .... heads the ball back to Yoel... again.

You can use your feet, my Turkish maestro!
...
44' Sergi Enrich goes into the book for a trip on Neymar. Replays show the Eibar striker had got the ball first, but tripped Neymar on the follow through. That was rather harsh.
...
42' FANTASTIC FOOTBALL! Sergi Roberto, Luis Suarez, Leo Messi and Neymar all exchange swift one-touch passes, which ends with Neymar working his way into the box. The Brazilian tries to curl the ball into the bottom corner after opening his body and striking at goal, but Yoel makes a good save!
...
39' Capa does superbly to deal with a tricky ball from Messi and keeps the ball out of play. The Eibar fullback is livid after the referee signals for a corner and beats the ball away in frustration, earning a corner. Barcelona can't do much from the set-piece.
