  1. Goodbye

    Athletic Bilbao 1-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona lost just three times in the league last season.

    They're already playing catch-up.

    And what a goal to win it!

    Many thanks for your company.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Athletic Bilbao 1-0 Barcelona

    Brilliant by Athletic Bilbao.

    The champions are beaten on the opening day of the season!

  3. GOAL - Athletic Bilbao 1-0 Barcelona

    Aritz Aduriz

    STUNNING!

    Bedlam at San Mames as substitue Aritz Aduriz produces a breathtaking finish to put Athletic Bilbao on course for a famous win.

    The 38-year-old finds the net with a sublime scissor-kick - one bounce before finding the back of the net.

    Barca are on the brink of defeat!

  4. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Ten shots but just one on target for the champions. They've missed the genius that is Lionel Messi.

  5. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Chance for Antoine Griezmann!

    Barca's expensive summer recruit has been quiet all night but a sharp move leads to an opening. A winner on his league debut for his new club? Nope. He fires wide and that just about sums up the visitors.

  6. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Barca failed to beat Athletic Bilbao last season. We're on course for a third straight draw between these two rivals. This has been a very promising performance for the hosts to take into the season.

  7. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Rafinha has been one of Barca's brightest players since coming on for Luis Suarez. The Brazilian dribbles past one challenge and then another before firing narrowly wide. That was a decent effort.

  8. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Ivan Rakitic tries to fashion an opening but Unai Simon spots the danger and the Athletic Bilbao keeper is quickly off his line to gather.

  9. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Still only one shot on target by Barcelona.

    The champions have looked rusty in the Basque Country but how many times did they leave it late to score last season?

    Both teams still have time to find a winner.

  10. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Ivan Rakitic blazes over after Barca create another opening.

    The champions have 20 minutes to find a goal.

  11. Post update

    Bayern Munich 2-2 Hertha Berlin

    All over. Champions Bayern Munich are held to a draw by Hertha Berlin in the opening game of the Bundesliga season.

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Unai Nunez is punished for a deliberate block on Ivan Rakitic which brings a promising Barca attack to a sudden stop. The home fans don't like it. The jeers are deafening.

  13. Post update

    Bayern Munich 2-2 Hertha Berlin

    They are deep into stoppage time in Munich. Are champions Bayern about to start the season by dropping two points?

  14. YELLOW CARD

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique is pleading with the referee after leaving Raul García rolling in agony. The Barca defender is punished with a yellow card.

  15. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    A free-kick to Barca which Ousmane Dembele delivers into the penalty area. It's a poor clearance and Rafinha goes for a spectacular finish - only to fail miserably.

  16. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Inaki Williams is definitely one to keep an eye out for this season.

    The Bilbao forward could have had a hat-trick but has been denied by a combination of brilliant goalkeeping and poor finishing.

    His latest attempt ripples the side netting.

  17. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Athletic Bilbao cannot get out of their own half.

    They were bright the breezy in the opening 45 minutes but it's a different story now.

    Barca are playing a patient passing game and are looking to pick off the hosts but Athletic's defence remains calm and composed for now.

  18. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    This is more like the Barcelona we know.

    Lovely stuff by Ousmane Dembele whose pass through the legs of Ander Capa finds Rafinha.

    The substitute lets fly with a first-time effort but it's into the side netting.

  19. Post update

    Bayern Munich 2-2 Hertha Berlin

    Around 15 minutes left in Munich. The champions are being held. Will there be late drama?

  20. Post update

    Athletic Bilbao 0-0 Barcelona

    Whistles break out around San Mames as Barca dominate possession in the opening exchanges of the second half.

    An early chance for substitute Ivan Rakitic but he can't keep his header down after Ousmane Dembele whips in a corner.
