  2. What a fine Messi!

    Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi has scored 22 goals in 20 La Liga games against Atletico.

    That is best described as ridiculous. 

  3. Waiting for Godin

    Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    Atletico defender Diego Godin has scored two goals against Barcelona in La Liga - the first came in 2014 which resulted in his side being crowned league champions.

    Today's goal will be regarded as less memorable in the future.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    Remarkable.

    Lionel Messi is the Barca hero for the five millionth time.

    Luis Enrique's side move to the top of La Liga.

    They looked a shambles in the first 15 minutes of the match.

  6. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    Not long left.

  7. STOPPAGE TIME

    Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    We have four minutes of it.

    Atletico almost pinch an equaliser but Gerard Pique is on hand to hook the ball clear with sub Fernando Torres set to pounce from three yards out.

    Thrilling.

  8. GOAL - Atletico Madrid 1-2 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi

    Yup. Him.

    Again, not produced one of his most memorable displays but comes up with the goods once more.

    This time Samuel Umtiti finds himself in the box and lays the ball to Luiz Suarez.

    The Uruguyan, in turn, plays the ball to Lionel Messi. The Argentine's initial shot is blocked by Stefan Savic, but the loose ball lands at the feet of the diminutive forward who pokes in.

    This would be an amazing win for Luis Enrique's men.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    Sergi Roberto is replaced by Andre Gomes.

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    It's a yellow for Lionel Messi - for being gobby?

    Sixth yellow of the game.

  11. Nada

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    It comes to nothing. 

  12. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    Barca have a free-kick about 30 yards out but far left of centre after Neymar is fouled.

    Interesting-ish.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    Nope. Jeremy Mathieu is not OK. He's coming off to be replaced by Lucas Digne.

  14. YELLOW CARDS

    Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    Gabi is shown a yellow card for a high tackle on Barcelona sub Ivan Rakitic and then sub Angel Correa goes into the book for scything down Barca defender Jeremy Mathieu.

    The defender looks in trouble, but after a bit of treatment he's up and about.

  15. GOAL - Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

    Diego Godin

    What a brilliant delivery by Koke.

    The Spaniard whips in a free-kick from the left and finds the head of Diego Godin, who with the faintest of flicks beats keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

    An excellent ball and header.

    Diego Godin
  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Atletico Madrid 0-1 Barcelona

    Cometh the 68th minute, cometh Fernando Torres.

    The former Liverpool hot-shot is on.

    Brayo:  After the Atleti chances, we might experience a sucker-punch penalty. Awful for pro-Madrid guys but well, this is Barca 

  18. GOAL - Atletico Madrid 0-1 Barcelona

    Rafinha

    I was just saying to my colleague, "imagine if Rafinha scored?"

    The midfielder has not really been noticeable at the Vicente but pops up to slot the ball in past the reach of Jan Oblak after Luis Suarez's effort ricochets into his path.

    A bit of a surprise this.

    Rafinha celebrates
  19. Post update

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Barcelona

    Barca's defence look less fragile and nervy.

    Mr.Shakira puts in a good block to prevent Kevin Gameiro's shot for snapping Marc-Andre ter Stegen's hands.

    Whenever wherever!

  20. YELLOW CARD

    Atletico Madrid 0-0 Barcelona

    Atletico's Saul goes into the book for a foul on Neymar. It gets a little heated between the players but the tension is diffused by ref Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz.
