  1. Goodnight

    Thanks for joining me tonight, that wasn't the worst 0-0 in the world. Athletic were excellent.

    That's the end of this live page now, goodnight.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    That was the last action of the game. It's all over and Barcelona go six points clear at the top.

  3. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    The referee says no penalty for Yeray's tackle on Ousmane Dembele.

  4. Video Assistant Referee

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Drama right at the end as Ousmane Dembele goes down on the edge of the box. Could it be a penalty? The referee is chatting to the VAR team.

  5. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    We're into the final minute now. Athletic on the attack but not in the numbers they were before. And they concede a free-kick.

  6. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Ousmane Dembele shuffles onto his left foot on the edge of the box but his shot is easily saved by Iago Herrerin. I suspect Athletic will just try to see this out now with 10 men.

  7. RED CARD

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    In fact Oscar de Marcos is sent off for a second booking for that handball. It took such a long time for the referee to make that apparent. And he signals to the bench that he wants another minute added on.

  8. YELLOW CARD

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique heads it away. Barca try to counter, but Oscar de Marcos handles. Team-mate Yeray reacts angrily and gets booked.

  9. INJURY TIME

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    The board goes up for four minutes added on as Athletic win a corner.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic make a change up front for the final minutes. Inaki Williams, who has been sensational, is replaced by January signing Kenan Kodro.

  11. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi crosses the free-kick, Gerard Pique just heads it up into the air and Ivan Rakitic's shot is held by Iago Herrerin at his near post.

  12. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Free-kick to Barcelona as Lionel Messi is double teamed by two defenders.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona make a change at the back. Thomas Vermaelen replaces Clement Lenglet, who must not have recovered from a knock earlier.

    That means no Kevin-Prince Boateng today as they've made all three subs.

  14. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic are unlucky not to be winning but if they lost this now, it would be a travesty.

    They come forward again but Inaki Williams' deflected shot is saved.

  15. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic are really going for this. Just the thought of Inaki Williams is scaring the life out of Barca's defence - much like me and Stranger Things.

    He puts in a cross which finds Yeray Alvarez but the defender puts it wide. That's right, a defender had come forward for the attack at 0-0 against Barca.

  16. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Now Raul Garcia gets a header in for Athletic Club/Bilbao but this is an easy save for Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

  17. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic almost get the breakthrough. Iker Muniain picks out Inaki Williams near the penalty spot. The striker takes a touch and smashes a shot towards goal which Marc-Andre ter Stegen reacts brilliantly to claw away.

    The hosts would have won this game if it wasn't for Ter Stegen. They still have eight minutes left to beat him.

  18. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    A real scare for Barcelona as Iker Muniain drives in a free-kick which could go anywhere. Inaki Williams heads it wide, under pressure from Gerard Pique. Clement Lenglet goes down. That could have ended up anywhere.

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Great play by Inaki Williams to win a free-kick as he waits for Sergio Busquets to catch up with him and draws the foul. The Barca midfielder is booked.

  20. Post update

    Athletic 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic will hope they can get another chance through their speedy striker. A long ball is played forward to Inaki Williams but Sergio Busquets holds his nerve to get there first and find a team-mate.
