PEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP!!

And that's it. It's a wrap. Ernesto Valverde's men are victorious yet again. Misery continues for Michel's men but let me tell you one thing, they did not play like a team that is sitting 20th on the table. They created plenty of chances and were unlucky to go down 1-0 in the second minute. Just a horrible time for some poor refereeing.

That's all tonight from the yap centre. Hope y'all had some fun. You can take me to the cleaners on twitter- @goddamnhunter

See you midweek. 

Arrivederci! 
...
93' We're into the last minute of the game and Barcelona will see this out without any bad news it seems.
...
92' Messi with an incredible ball to Paco Alcacer. OH Wait! That's offside too. Almost a brilliant piece of play from the magician.
...
91' ter Stegen saves once again. This time it's an optimistic shot from Chory from the left side of the box.
...
90' Header on target from Juanpi but ter Stegen gathers as it is not really testing.
...
89[' OH MESSI SCORES! NO! OFFSIDE! 

Messi heads it in after Semedo helps on a cross from the right flank. Messi heads it in but Semedo is flagged offside.
...
87' Messi creates yet another chance for Barcelona. Paulinho combines well with Messi again and Messi returns the favour as he drags it back for the Brazilian who tries to carve one into the far corner. But Prieto stretches and parries it out for a corner.
...
86' Iniesta with some brilliant skills and a dinked ball to free Digne on the left flank. Digne's cross is not upto par and Paco tries to get their ahead of Prieto and ends up forcing an awkward save from the Malaga keeper. Ball goes out for a corner but nothing comes from it.
...
84' Paulinho gets an awkward shot away. Lionel Messi is trying to work something on his own. He breaks into the area and then plays a lovely one-two with the Brazilian but Prieto gets to it just before Messi can make something out of it. Prieto parries it and Paulinho tries to send it home first time but it was a half chance at best and the ball flies high over the bar.
...
83' Some great running by Sergi Roberto once again, Shimmies past 2 defenders and tries to curl it into the far corner but his shot is poor. 
...
82' Substitution for Barcelona! 
Paco Alcacer in and Luis Suarez out! Another disappointing night for the Uruguayan as he walks off slowly, head low and full of bugs in his head.
...
79' Barcelona not giving up on trying tonight. Iniesta, Suarez and Messi are all taking on defenders and trying to beat them. Iniesta is brought down outside the area but the ref plays the advantage although Barcelona can't make anything of it.
...
77' Barcelona have really eased into the driver's seat in this game. Ever since that 2nd goal went in, Malaga have been looking uncomfortable and resigned. And Barcelona have stepped up their game in the second half.
...
75' Substitution! Paulinho in and interestingly it's Busquets who goes out!
...
74' Oh! Luis Hernandez comes close from a header off the freekick from the left flank. 
...
73' OH HOW SUAREZ?! HOW?

How did he miss that? Messi picks out Roberto down the centre and that's some astounding pace from the youngster who runs into the box drawing 2 defenders with him. He then squares it to Luis Suarez who has an open goal and needs to just pass it in. He can't get it on target and thats all he had to do. Horrible horrible miss.
...
72' Paulinho is all set to come on. He'll probably be coming on for Rakitic. Let's wait and see what Valverde has on his mind.
...
70' Substitution for Barcelona! Semedo in, Deulofeu out!
...
69' The Malaga players' tiredness from all that pressing in the first half is showing as they have now receded further into their own half.
...
67' Keko tries to pick out Chory on the left flank and Chory twists and turns and runs away from Roberto. Chory swings it in from the left flank and Keko lets one fly and it catches Digne in the face. He unleashes one more on the rebound but this time it's hit straight at ter Stegen Oh wait! He actually had his hands protecting his face there. Could so easily have been a penalty there. 
...
64' Malaga snuff the ball out from Messi's feet right outside the box and tries to break in a quick counter but they are stopped near the halfway line. Should be passing the ball better. 
...
63' Mascherano gives it away cheaply as Keko gathers the ball and tries to free Penaranda into the final third. But his ball is overpowered and it goes flying into the left wing. Chory collects it and Malaga are trying to work their way from the back once again now.
...
62' Adrian fouls Digne on the right flank in their attacking third. Pressure is off once again and Barca can try to build on their lead.
...
59' OH LUIS SUAREZ! CLOSE!
Rakitic finds Suarez on the edge of the box and the Uruguayan with a spectacular turn takes the ball into the box. Baysse goes down but Suarez's subsequent shot rattles the side netting. Could have pulled off a stunner there. Still shining in parts, Suarez. 
...
57' The sense of uneasiness has left Camp Nou and they are sitting more comfortably in their seats now as Malaga seem to have got some wind knocked out of their sails right now.
