    And with that, it's time to say goodnight. Thanks for your company - and for your memories of 2008. Villarreal's wait for a win over Barcelona goes on, but it was a close-run thing. See you soon.

  2. Post update

    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    One final piece to point you towards; Jonathan Jurejko's report on Juve's 3-0 win - which set a new Serie A record of 26 consecutive home wins.

    Serie A round-up

    In Italy, Juve's win keeps them a decent distance ahead of Roma, who had attempted to apply pressure earlier in the day with a 1-0 win at Genoa. Spare a thought for Armando Izzo, the Genoa defender - his own goal decided the game, and it was his second of the season. He's in danger of becoming the Richard Dunne of Italy.

    Elsewhere, Joe Hart kept a clean sheet for Torino in a 0-0 draw at Sassuolo that was about as exciting as the scoreline suggests. Two Ivan Perisic goals gave Inter Milan a fourth successive Serie A win as they beat Udinese; there were late winners for Lazio and AC Milan, and a thumping victory for Atalanta at Chievo. Read all about those games here.

    Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona

    My colleague Neil Johnston is putting together a more considered verdict on tonight's La Liga game, and you can read that report here.

    In today's other La Liga games, Leganes remain four points above the relegation zone after losing 2-0 at Real Betis, while Celta Vigo moved back into the top half of the table by beating Malaga 3-1. Athletic Bilbao drew 0-0 at home to Alaves.

    Kyle: Brilliant goal from Messi. Shame the referee didn't do his job properly as that goal deserved to be the winner.

    Barcelona had two very good penalty shouts rejected as Villarreal captain Bruno handled the ball inside his penalty area twice without detection.

    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    So a good night for Real Madrid, and a good night too for Juventus, who are very well placed to retain their Serie A title after tonight's straightforward win.

  7. Post update

    Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona

    Villarreal could not quite see it out, but the result will nonetheless be welcomed by Real Madrid. Barcelona fail to move above Sevilla, and are five points behind the leaders, having played a game more.


    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    Peep peep peeeeeeeep! All over in Turin. It is easier to successfully leave Alcatraz Island then it is to escape the Juventus Stadium with anything but a wounding defeat.

    Defending champions Juve cruise to their 26th consecutive home win to move four points clear of Roma. Oh, and they have a game in hand on the Giallorossi.

    Have any bookies paid out yet?!

    Juventus' players celebrate

    Dave Wood: The 9 year wait goes on...

    Indeed it does. Villarreal's first win over Barcelona since 2008 looked as if it would happen tonight. Lionel Messi, though, had other ideas.


    Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona

    Jaume may feel that red card was worth it, as it checked Barcelona's momentum just enough to ensure that they could not nick a late winner. And, to be honest, had the game gone on for another five minutes, they may well have done.

  11. RED CARD - Jaume Costa

    Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona

    Deep into four minutes of stoppage time. Is there a late twist here? There's a sending off for Villarreal full-back Jaume Costa, booked earlier for pulling down Luis Suarez, is booked again for fouling Lionel Messi.

    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    Into the final five. If Bologna turn this around now then I'll buy a packet of fruit-based chews for every single one of you.

  13. GOAL - Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi

    Lionel Messi free-kick

    Brilliant free-kick. It's what we have come to expect from the little magician. The free-kick is more or less central, just outside the D, and Messi hammers it into the top corner. The goalkeeper did not move.

    Villarreal 1-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona have done everything but score in this second half. Villarreal's defensive discipline - aided with a degree of fortune - has kept them ahead. But now Bruno hauls down Lionel Messi just outside the penalty area, and this is a chance...


    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    It's party time for Juventus and, in particularly, Tomas Rincon. The new signing, who becomes the first Venezuelan to represent the Old Lady, comes on to make his debut in place of Sami Khedira.

    The former Genoa midfielder is grinning from ear-to-ear. He looks happier than a postman who has just found out he has won the Euromillions. 

  16. Post update

    Villarreal 1-0 Barcelona

    A couple of scares for Villarreal. First, Arda Turan heads a clear chance wide from eight yards. Then keeper Sergio Asenjo and defender Victor Ruiz are caught going for the same ball, it runs loose to Neymar, whose goalbound shot is blocked.

    Mateo Musacchio falls awkwardly on to his arm amid all of that, and the Villarreal defender cannot continue. Alvaro Gonzalez is on at centre-back in his place. Four minutes plus stoppage time for the home side to hold on.

    Alex: Jan VofH's 93rd min goal to win the derby vs Rangers in April. It was a vital win in the title run in!

    Good effort, Alex, to find a way of fitting Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink into a tweet. We're asking for your memories of 2008, as that was the last time Villarreal beat Barcelona.

  18. Post update

    Villarreal 1-0 Barcelona

    Villarreal defending deeper and deeper as the clock ticks down. So far, they're holding on - and they do still pose a threat on the counter. But I wonder if sitting so deep will end up haunting them. Roberto Soriano comes off for Villarreal, and Rodrigo Hernandez is on.

  19. Get Involved - I love 2008


    Alex Smith: In 2008 I scored 2 goals in a game of football in P.E, the only ones I ever scored. Was dubbed Michael Owen from then on.

    Juventus 3-0 Bologna

    Gonzalo Higuain's hopes of taking home the matchball are over. His shift is finished. Mario Mandzukic comes on to replace Juve's two-goal hero.
