FULL TIME: Sporting Gijon 1-3 Barcelona
...
3 minutes of stoppage time added by the referee
...
85': Barcelona are playing a patient game by working the ball around the box, trying to find a gap in Sporting's defence.
...
...
81': Marc Bartra has also come on for Pique to play out the rest of the game
...
Sergio Busquets will miss the next game after receiving a yellow card for reacting to Menendez's foul. He has been subbed and Mascherano comes on.
...
80': Gerard Pique with a sliding tackle to stop an attack. Risky as he was the last man but effective as Sporting are stopped in their tracks.
...
75': Turan tries to force his way through the central defence but he is dispossessed as he falls to ground. No foul!
...
...
Suarez is now level with Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain on 24 league goals - the highest in Europe's top 5 leagues.
...
That third goal silenced the Sporting crowd at El Molinon. They were behind their team with an equaliser in sight but have now mellowed down after Suarez's strike.
...
67': GOAL! Luis Suarez curls one in from inside the box with his left foot! Cuellar had no chance to make a save there! Terrific stuff from Barcelona's no.9!
...
...
62': PENALTY SAVED! Luis Suarez stepped up to take the penalty and Cuellar makes the save by diving to his right! Maybe Suarez should have passed?
...
61': PENALTY! Neymar is brought down in the box by goalkeeper Cuellar! YELLOW CARD!
...
58': Halilovic is brought down in the box by Turan but the referee denies Sporting a penalty! Replays showed Turan came in from behind to steal the ball and Halilovic kicked Turan's leg instead of the ball. Boos from the home fans.
...
56': Suarez tries to chip the goalkeeper but doesn't have enough force on it and Sporting clear the ball.
...
55': SAVE! Mascarell takes a shot on goal but Claudio Bravo is behind it and make a comfortable save.
...
53': Break in play as Busquets gets hit in the face from a lofted pass. The medic has been called to have a look as Javier Mascherano warms up.
...
50': Messi finds Suarez again with a superb through ball but the linesman raises his flag. Offside!
...
...
The second half is underway!
...
...
HALF-TIME: Sporting 1-2 Barcelona. A breath-taking half comes to an end!
