...
90+5' Messi's freekick is deflected but the ref blows the whistle for full-time! Wow, that was some game, lads and lasses. The Barca players surround the ref, clearly feeling hard done by some of the ref's decisions. Full-time!
...
90+4' Barca win a freekick and it's barely 25 yards away from goal! Messi territory. By the way, Mallo was booked for the tackle. 
...
90+3' ALCACER had the chance to win it! A stunning cross from Roberto, from the right, but Alcacer's header is just over the bar!
...
90+2' Suarez has been so bad in the build-up play in the last 10 minutes or so. He is caught dwelling on the ball for too long and Barca lose possession. 
...
5 minutes have been added one. FIVE.
...
90' Suarez had the chance to make something happen and nearly did, but what should have been a corner is given as a goal-kick. The refereeing has been below-par, again. 
...
89' Barca are rushing their passes now. Hell, I won't be surprised if Celta grab a late winner here judging by the way the hosts have defended. appaling. 
...
87' Jeez, Celta nearly scored on the counter, AGAIN! ter Stegen did so well to deny Sisto there and the rebound came to nothing. 
...
87' Yellow card for Wass for a tactical foul on Denis!
...
85' Messi! Nearly grabs the winner! Suarez did well to control and play Denis on the left and the latter's shot takes a deflection and falls for Messi. The Argentine is only able to head it wide! Big chance!
...
84' Substitution for Celta: Jozabed is replaced by Hernandez. 
...
82' Barca are seeing a lot of the ball, but are struggling to break through. The service from the wide areas has dried up and the crossing into the box is a bit aimless here. Can they create one good clear-cut chance before the end? 
...
80' Jeez, Aspas absolutely schooled Pique with a fake there. The defender is bailed by his teammate Alba though. Barca have struggled while defending Celta's counters. 
...
78' Substitution for Barcelona: Alcacer replaces Rakitic.
...
77' Barca play it out well from the back and nearly convert! It seemed like a mix up between the two Celta centre-backs, but luckily for the away side, it falls away from any Barca attacker!
...
75' PIQUE WITH A TERRIBLE MISS! Messi cheekily passed it through the clueless Celta defence who were expecting a cross and Pique, collects it, rounds off Ruben, but can't find the net! Amazing!
...
74' Yellow card to Roncaglia. Barca get a freekick. Again, it's an angle from where Barca can't take a direct shot or cross it as they don't have enough aerial prowess. 
...
Substitution for Barcelona: Umtiti is replaced by Vermaelen. Looks like a hamstring issue. Big blow to Barcelona. 
...
Poor play by Barca and Alba in particular. Aspas had acres of space on the right after Alba was found out of position and he squared it to an unmarked Gomez who smashed it past Stegen.
...
70' GOAAAAAAAAAAALLLL for Celta! Gomez with the goal! 2-2!
...
68' Barca have the lead and should be able to manage the game well now that Celta will throw more men forward. Their defensive structure could become a bit looser now. 
...
67' Aspas tries to sidefoot it into the goal from about 30 yards, but laddie, you don't try that when ter Stegen is in this imperious form! Easy safe. 
...
66' Messi marauds on the left but his pass was cut out well by Fontas. A decent chance that. Suarez was on hand to tap it in again!
...
65' Chance for Barca! Messi should have made it three for Barca! Top save from Ruben there as his strong right hand denied Messi a good headed goal. 
...
Leo Messi starts the move with a brilliantly weighted pass for Abla. The pass took out Gomez and Wass, and Alba, on the left, simply had to side-foot it to a free Suarez who tapped it in with ease!
