Sevilla gave a good account themselves even though the hosts threatened to run away with it at times. Messi was fantastic, but let's not forget Paco Alcacer's vital goals that won them the game. The goals will do him a world of good and with Suarez's goal-scoring touch deserting him, Barca needed Alcacer to come good! Sevilla will be disappointed, as they were good in patches during the game. 

With 10 wins in 11 games, Barca are full of confidence now ahead of the international break, so it wouldn't be wise to bet against them in the coming months.

Peep, Peeep, Peeeeeeeep! Fulltime! Barcelona once again pick up a narrow win and re-open a four-point lead at the top of the table over Valencia. 
...
90+3' Sevilla lose the ball but Paulinho's overruns the ball and doesn't get a freekick. A furious Messi is booked for dissent! Don't get to see that too often!
...
90+2' Sevilla push forward, but Corchia's run is too early and Nzonzi's pass is rendered useless as the former is adjudged offside. What a shame, good pass that. 
...
90+1' Messi has another go at the Sevilla defence but just can't get a shot away. Sevilla are back in possession. Can they create one last chance? 
...
Four minutes have been added on
...
Substitution for Barcelona: Mascherano replaces Rakitic, who was excellent by the way. 
...
89' Barcelona keep the ball and do well to knock it around, drying up what little energy Sevilla have left to give it another push. Good game management. 
...
87' Freekick to Barcelona as Messi is fouled by Lenglet!
...
85' A pass to Ter Stegen is cleared to the Sevilla half by the German! Don't see that too often! At this stage, he can't really be blamed for playing it safe, though. 
...
84' The atmosphere is a tense one at Camp Nou. Sevilla simply haven't created enough after their first goal, so it's hard to think how they will score another. Barca have looked confident in possession, can they continue in that way for a few minutes more? 
...
83' Freekick to Barcelona as Nolito is penalised. 
...
80' Rakitic was clearly fouled by Escudero, but it appeared clear after the replay. The run on the right was started by a Suarez flick, and on first sight, it did look iffy. The ref can be forgiven though, very hard to spot that. 
...
78' Sevilla manage a good spell and a corner at the end of it, but they simply can't muster any sort of a shot. Barca counter with a 2v3 situation, but Suarez's attempted pass to Messi is intercepted!
...
Substitution for Sevilla: Ben Yedder is on for Muriel.
...
76' Deulofeu tries to cut in from the left, but his shot is blocked. Barcelona have dominated possession after the Sevilla equaliser and the away side have barely had a go at the Barcelona goal. That Pizarro goal woke Barca up, for good!
...
75' Ooooh! Paulinho finds Messi with a cute through pass but the latter was inches offside! The rain is absolutely belting down at Camp Nou, by the way...
...
74' Geis should play a more creative role from the deep. His passing and distribution could trouble Barcelona on the counter!
...
Substitution for Sevilla: Geis replaces Kjaer. 
...
73' Messi with a chance again! His sidefoot shot is saved by Soria. How long can they keep the Argentine off the scoresheet? 
...
72' Barcelona have done well to stifle Sevilla after the second goal. To be honest, it was a sucker punch as they had just scored the equaliser!
...
70' Deulofeu combines well with Alba on the left and Barcelona win a freekick eventually as Busquets is fowled. But Messi though. Jeez, he has done everything but score in this game!
...
69' Messi TAKES ON SIX DEFENDERS, YES, SIX, and finds Luis Suarez who's shot deflected away for a corner. It was a handball, but inadvertent, and rightfully just a corner. Nothing comes off it!
...
67' Valverde isn't hanging around now, is he? The quick changes should keep Barca's intensity, something that dropped and perhaps resulted in  the Sevilla goal.
...
Substitution for Barcelona: Deulofeu replaces Alcacer.
