    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    All over, Barca get the victory.

    We are back later this evening for more Euro action.

    Until then.


    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona have scored two, but should have had five or six.

    Lionel Messi the creator again, laying the ball on a plate for Luis Suarez, but the Uruguayan's shot is brilliant kept out by Bono.

  3. CLOSE!

    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Here's Philippe Coutinho's chance...

    Played through by Lionel Messi, goes round goalkeeper Bono but takes too much time, dithers for too long and sees his shot blocked on the line.

    Into injury-time, THREE minutes added on.


    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Last throw of the dice for Girona.

    South Korea-born Paik Seung-ho - a former Barca youth team player - comes on for his La Liga debut against his old club.

    He replaces skipper Alex Granell.

    A final Barca change.

  8. Post update

    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    10 to play, how many more will Barca get?

  9. CLOSE!

    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Bono being kept warm now.

    Ivan Rakitic takes aim from 25 yards out, but his swerving drive is pushed out by the Girona goalkeeper.


    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Another Barca change.

    Thomas Vermaelen on for Clement Lenglet.


    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona want a third.

    Luis Suarez plays a lovely, reverse pass to Lionel Messi, but he is human, seeing his caressed, side-footed finish kept out by Bono.

  12. CLOSE!

    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Oof, gorgeous pass from Ivan Rakitic, splitting the Girona defence and playing in Luis Suarez.

    The Uruguayan cuts inside a defender but curls a shot horribly over.

  13. Post update

    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    It has been another poor performance from Philippe Coutinho today.

    Can't say he has not been given opportunities in the team.


    Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Girona's Juanpe booked for his reaction to the goal.

  15. GOAL - Girona 0-2 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi

    All over.

    Gaping holes in the Girona defence and Barcelona double their lead.

    Jordi Alba frees Lionel Messi one-on-one with Bono, he lets the Girona goalkeeper approach him before dinking a delightful finish into the net.

    There was no doubting that.

  16. Post update

    Girona 0-1 Barcelona

    Girona have had the stuffing knocked out of them after missing those two or three quick-fire chances.

    Can they find a second wind?


    Girona 0-1 Barcelona

    Ernesto Valverde makes his first Barca change.

    Off comes Arturo Vidal and Arthur takes his place.

  18. Post update

    Girona 0-1 Barcelona

    Girona are causing Barcelona allsorts of issues.

    Valery puts a cross into the box towards Cristhian Stuani, but the striker is cleverly nudged off the ball by Jordi Alba.

  19. CLOSE!

    Girona 0-1 Barcelona

    ANOTHER opportunity for the hosts, they really should be level.

    Pedro Porro plays a brilliant ball into the six yards box, Cristhian Stuani should convert, but Sergio Busquets slides back with an inch-perfect tackle to avert the danger.

  20. CLOSE!

    Girona 0-1 Barcelona

    Girona are getting plenty of chances.

    It's Cristhian Stuani again with a curled effort from the edge of the box which is straight at Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
