...
86' Good spell of pressure for Barca as they win a corner after free-kick!
...
83' Barca definitely haven't been at their fluent best tonight! They are having to grind out this result! Can they hold on for just a little longer?
...
80' David Concha comes on for William Jose
...
79' MESSI TAKES IT! But his shot just rises over the bar and lands on the roof of the net!

79' Messi brought down in a very dangerous area by Martinez!!
...
77' GOMES IS THROUGH ON GOAL! But Navas gets back in time to concede a corner

62' GREAT CHANCE FOR THE EQUALISER GOES BEGGING! A cross comes in from the left across the face of goal and it just goes past the far post with none of the runners into the box able to make contact!!
...
59' ANOTHER CONTROVERSIAL CALL! The free-kick finally comes, Barca try to play the offside trap! But they did not see the run of the full back who wasn't offside. The linesman raises his flag anyway and that is a very poor call!
...
59' Should Messi have been sent off? Sociedad try to take a quick free-kick but Messi gets in the way and blocks it illegally. The crowd scream for a second yellow but the referee keeps his cards in his pocket
...
57' NEYMAR TRIES TO CURL ONE! Once again set up by a Leo Messi backheel allowing the Brazilan to open his body up and try to place that ball in the far corner. Did not get enough curl on it!
...
56' It turns out that handball decision was right as the ball just hits the midriff and not the arm!

53' Sociedad shout for handball against Lucas Digne in the box!! A volley from Prieto hits the defender form close range but nothing given
...
48' NEYMAR WASTES A GREAT CHANCE!! One long ball and the defence are al over the place, the Brazilian is through but he takes a poor touch and the keeper gathers. That should have been 2-0!!
...
48' Barca living on the edge trying to persist with their style of playing out from the back as Suarez fouled
...
47' Oyarzabal on the end of the first real chance of the second half as he fails to get anything on a great ball in from the long free-kick!
...
And the second half gets underway
...
It looks like Iniesta is the one who has made way. Is it a defensive change? An injury/ The reason is unknown
...
The second half is close to starting and it looks like Andre Gomes is coming on and it is unknown for whom
...
HALF TIME Sociedad 0-1 Barcelona
