...
86' Dennis to Phillipe, Vazquez wins it back from his fellow South American.
...
85' Messi looks out of it now. Barca seem to have acknowledged their fate. No longer unbeaten! ONLY THE GUNNERS! HAHA!
...
84' Corner is cleared by Roberto as far as Nzonzi. The ball out to the flank is poor. Throw in for the visitors.
...
83' Barca switch flanks to Coutinho on the left who links well with Messi and Alba but the ball in is cleared away. Muriel breaks with pace ONCE AGAIN! His shot is blocked by Pique. Corner.
...
82' Sevilla with Muriel on the ball. Supported by Pizzaro. Dispossed by Dennis.

...
80' Barca build from the back down the left. 
...
79' NAVAS WITH A SHOT ON TARGET! TER STEGEN SAVES!

A good passing move ends with a shot from Navas!
...
78' Barca can't seem to find their mojo as they repeatedly fail to break down the Sevilla back-line who look well-drilled.
...
77' NAVAS WITH AN ATTEMPT!

The former City man shoots from the edge of the box but the ball was always rising.
...
76' MESSI SHOOTS WIDE!

Iniesta to Roberto back to Messi. Whose shot was always curling wide.
...
75' Nzonzi is not letting this Barca attack any time on the ball and is bossing the middle of the park.
...
74' Suarez penalised for a rash challenge after Messi is disposed again. What is that 5 6 times now?
...
73' Another break from Sevilla!

With Barca pushed forward the runners are finding themselves in all sorts of space but are repeatedly failing to put the game to bed for their side.
...
72' Suarez is rolling around on the ground but Barca get on with it. 
...
71' Coutinho attempts to put a ball into the box but fails to deliver, like he has in most of the game. On the fringes.
...
70' Rakitic gives it away and Sevilla break in numbers but fail to capitalise. They might live to regret these chances, specially with Messi now on the field. 
...
69' Sevilla are hitting Barca on the break, but the mere presence of Leo Messi has lifted the performance of every man in a Barca shirt.

Piques with a stray pass. Not totally engulfed in the magic of Leo.
...
68' Suarez has been very poor in possession, gives it away on the edge of the opposition box once more and Sevilla break with pace. The Colombian Muriel fires the ball into the side-netting! Crazy stuff!
...
68' Pandamonium in the Seville box! The ball is finally hooked forward out of danger!
...
67' Banega's ball forward is intercepted by Umtiti, Suarez slows it down as reinforcements arrive. Messi dinks one over the top but a Sevilla man is the first to it!
...
66' Vazqyez dispossessed Messi this time! They are not backing off!

65' Tackle after tackle, bodies flying everywhere. This is getting seriously heated up! Messi and Suarez forward for Barca but the Uruguayan can't find the Argentine.
...
64' Suarez on the left, comes in and whips it out to Roberto on the right, Messi isn't getting any change out of the ref who doesn't award a foul.
...
62' END TO END STUFF NOW! I CANNOT KEEP UP!

Sevilla are far from content to let Messi run the game! And are getting tight on the Argentine. Nzonzi the latest to get the ball off Leo. But this game is now ALIVE!
...
61' Messi dispossessed! And the counter for Sevilla! Navas in acres of space AGAIN! in the box! But he ball doesn't reach him!
...
60' SIDE NETTING FROM SUAREZ! WOW!

Another attempt, two in as many minutes!
Alba elects to cross when he should've shot and the ball across is met by Suarez who finds the side netting.
...
59' OFF THE LINE! BARCA ALMOST GET ONE BACK.

The magic of Messi is already working! The Barca side which has looked lethargic for the majority of the game suddenly seems to be glowing with life!
...
58' Messi will look to make it 30 against the side form Seville. The press is going to go bonkers back in Argentina though!
...
57' MESSI IS ON!!
...
55' IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THREE!

IT'S ALL HAPPENING NOW! Pique flys into a tackle worthy of a yellow, but the ref lets it go. Barca give the ball away with the ball ending up in their half with just Navas up against the keeper, who over does it and allows Pique to get himself on the line, and that was vital as the Spaniard clears it off the line.
...
54' Barca looking to start again, Racitic from the back for them. Iniesta is fouled again on the centre-line.
...
53' Iniesta with a mesmerising drop of the shoulder to turn away and is fouled. Messi looks on. Free-kick is taken rather poorly by the Uruguayan.
...
52' The unbeaten streak looks set to end here tonight at Seville. What giant-killers this side from Spain. Liverpool, United, now Barca?
...
50' GOAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!! 2-0! SEVILLA ON FIRE!

It seemed only like a matter of time. they've started brilliantly in the second! Muriel in acres of space again in the box, no one to close him down. He takes two touches in the box, settles himself, and fires it into the bottom left corner, past the despairing Ter-Stegen. The German had made a terrific save but the defence didn't help him out. Messi has to come on now!
...
49' Good football from the hosts as they move further upfield via some lovely passing. Correa looks to carry the call himself but is intercepted. Umtiti not buying the nut-meg.
...
48' Barca on the ball with Iniesta looking the most likely
...
47' Dangerous ball in by Sevilla!

Sevilla don't look bothered about Messi warming up as they get a hold of proceedings right away!
...
47' MESSI IS WARMING UP!!!!
...
46' AND WE"RE OFF!

Barca get things underway in the second.
...
Messi looks restless on that bench now. Get him on Ernesto. Be a little 'Ernesto' in your decision making.
