  1. Buenas noches

    Look, we've all got homes to get to, so I'll leave you there. Twelve goals in two games, I don't think we've had a bad day today.

    Unless you're a fan of Sporting Gijon. Or Athletic Bilbao. Or you're the Athletic keeper. Or Iker Muniain.

    Good night.

    It could all have been so different had Javier Eraso not chipped his shot over in the second minute.

    Barca broke from that and won the penalty - which came with a red card for Athletic's keeper - to start the rout.

    Also how unlucky for Iker Muniain - making his first La Liga start of the season following a serious injury. He was the man replaced by the sub keeper after four minutes.

    Graham Jack Thirkill: I cannot even begin to comprehend the gap between Barcelona and Man United at the moment.

    Dave Wood: As much as Barca are a joy to watch, this match has been ruined by an over zealous ref 

    Pure Gunner: Everything Real Madrid can do, Barca do it better.

    Neymar is inches from getting his second. Aleix Vidal puts in a cross from the right but the Brazilian forward misjudges his jump and misses the ball.

  13. YELLOW CARD

    Javier Eraso, who missed a couple of decent chances today, is booked for kicking Javier Mascherano from behind. 

    A last five minutes of five-a-side when you're knackered kind of tackle.

  14. GOAL - Barcelona 6-0 Athletic Bilbao

    Luis Suarez hat-trick

    Luis Suarez

    It's so easy for Barcelona, who have been excellent to watch tonight - admittedly against 10 men. A Sergio Busquets cross comes in from the right and Luis Suarez powers home a header.

    Time for a seventh?

  15. Post update

    Neymar is a sublime footballer when he's on form, he takes the ball in his stride with a brilliant touch, goes on a run and then tries to go around the keeper by rolling the ball under his foot but it's saved.

  16. Post update

    Barca have a free-kick but Neymar fires the shot over. Will Barca find a sixth in the final 10 minutes or so?

    Jack Tanner: Sergi Roberto - the Catalan John O'Shea 

    Albeit with fewer last-minute equalisers against Germany and nutmegs on Luis Figo

  18. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao substitute Ander Iturraspe slams a free-kick into the wall and Oscar de Marcos - who was booked in the aftermath of Barca's fifth goal - fires the rebound wide.
