PEEEP PEEEEP PEEEEEEEPPPP! That's it! It finishes 1-1 just as I had predicted.
Barcelona came to life in the last 20 minutes and they got their goal to keep their unbeaten run intact. Atletico Madrid never really threatened after their goal but were solid in defence and saw off wave after wave of Barcelona attack.

That's all from the Wanda Metropolitano and Atletico still can't walk away with 3 points in a match against Barcelona in the La Liga. 7 years and counting it is, then. Pretty solid showing from Atletico, nonetheless.

This is me, Shambhu Ajith, signing off. Hope y'all had fun at this yap centre. See y'all midweek.

Arrividerci!
...
93' OH NO! He hits it straight at Oblak and Messi is disappointed with himself.
...
93' Can Leo Messi do it? Can he do it twice in a week?
...
93' Leo Messi and Luis Suarez are on it. It is right outside the box. Bread and butter for Messi?
...
92' FREEKICK RIGHT OUTSIDE THE BOX IN THE LAST MINUTE!
Griezmann gets the yellow card. He comes lunging into Messi from behind.
...
92' Deulofeu has injected some genuine pace to the Barcelona attack. He almost pulls one back to perfection for Luis Suarez but Savic intervenes and that fizzled out.
...
91' Gomes finds Alba on the left flank. Alba's cross is almost met by Messi in the centre.
...
90' The Wanda Metropolitano urging Simeone's men to attack. The tension is tangible.
...
90' We're into stoppage time. 3 minutes added on!
...
88' Suarez with another shot! This one goes high!

Messi finds Suarez outside the box in the centre. Suarez drops the shoulder and gets past the defender but his shot flies high and that comes to nothing.
...
87' Barcelona come close once again! So close!
Juanfran tries to whip one into the centre of the box but Umtiti clears it away. Now Barcelona on the attack. Deulofeu with a perfect ball to Gomes on the left. Gomes passes it into the centre of the area but Suarez can't get to the end of it. He should have. Gomes did the right thing there, trying to find the striker instead of going himself.
...
86' Jan Oblak collects a freekick from the left flank and throws the ball out for the Atletico to go ahead and try to win those 3 points.
...
85' Some superb skill from Godin to rob the ball off a promising Barcelona attack. Messi combining well with Suarez near the edge of the area and before he could latch onto the return ball, Godin intervenes and does an astounding roulette outside the area to beat Messi and kickstart a counter.
...
83' Substitution for Atletico! Fernando Torres in! Gabi off!
...
81' SUAREZ SCORES! EXCELLENT FROM BARCELONA!

Gomes has been excellent in the last 10 minutes or so. He finds Sergi Roberto in space down the right flank and Roberto whips in a beauty and Suarez climbs as high as he could and heads the ball past Oblak. Spectacular. GAME ON!

...
81' JAN OBLAK SAVES! Beautiful football from Barce, good effort from Suarez!
Deulofeu frees up Suarez with a neat pass into the box and Suarez takes it well and has to extend his leg to meet the ball to have a try at goal but Oblak dives to his right and saves it!
...
80' Jordi Alba tries to find Paulinho in the centre with a cross from the left flank but there are too many Atletico bodies in the way and they clear the ball with ease.
...
79' Substitution for Barcelona! Rakitic off, Paulinho in!
...
78' Barcelona on the counter. Leo Messi is found by Busquets. Messi misplaces the pass and he had a chance to put Deulofeu 1 on 1 with Oblak. That's very unlike him.
...
77' Umtiti gets the ball from right outside the box and he doesn't know who to give it to and finally decides to go for it himself. Tame effort in the end and Oblak gathers comfortably.
...
76' Pique heads it down from Messi's delivery but Umtiti doesn't get to the end of it.
...
75' Silly silly elbow from Juanfran on Alba. Barcelona with a freekick in the attacking third, on the left flank. Leo Messi will take it.
...
74' Alba whips in an early cross from the left flank but there's no one there. Ball is cleared away and it falls to Deulofeu who plays a ridiculously poor ball back to Alba. Alba has to run 20 yards back to retrieve the ball. Not good stuff from the youngster.
...
72' Substitution for Atletico- Carrasco out, Thomas Partey in!
...
72' Filipe Luis with a clean sliding tackle dispossesses Roberto who was dangerously surging into the box from the right side after the ball was laid off to him by Messi.
