    FT: Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    That's all from me tonight.

    It's been a good day for Barcelona, Borussia Monchengladbach and Inter Milan, who all lead their respective leagues after victories today.

    You can read reports on all of those games on our European football page.

    Thanks for joining!

    FT: Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Confirmation of Barcelona's return to top spot in La Liga.

    The top three remain separated by just one point though, with Real Madrid and Sevilla both also winning this weekend.

    Atletico Madrid find themselves six points adrift of the leaders with defeat.

    La Liga table

    Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    It's not to be for Atletico!

    The full-time whistle goes and Barcelona hold on for victory, courtesy of Lionel Messi's superb late winner.

    They return top, level on points with Real Madrid.

  4. Post update

    Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Atletico have a free-kick and goalkeeper Jan Oblak is up for it!

    This is what you want to see.

  5. Post update

    Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona are trying to take control of the closing moments but Atletico are continuing to press every player.

    Atletico win a throw-in deep in the Barca half, Renan Lodi launches a long throw into the penalty area and the visitors eventually clear after a bit of pinball in the box.

    Nervy moments for Barca.

  6. Post update

    Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Three minutes to be added on. Can Atletico create one more opportunity?

  7. Post update

    Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Atletico aren't giving up on this.

    They force a corner, Samuel Umtiti clears but Barcelona remain penned in to their own half.

    Into the final few minutes.

  8. GOAL - Atletico 0-1 Barcelona

    Lionel Messi

    Who else.

    Atletico break forward from Barcelona's corner, but Ernesto Valverde's side come charging back upfield.

    Luis Suarez receives the ball, lays it neatly into the path of Lionel Messi and the Argentine fires a curling shot into the corner of Jan Oblak's goal from the edge of the box.

    Barca are heading top with four minutes remaining.

  9. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona play their corner short and the visitors fail to work an opening to get the ball into the box.

  10. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Corner for Barcelona.

    What can they make of this?

    One unanswered goal now will send them top.


    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique cannot continue following that challenge by Vitolo.

    Samuel Umtiti comes on for the closing stages.

  12. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona are knocking the ball around nicely as they patiently wait and hope for a gap to appear in the Atletico back line.

    That doesn't look like happening any time soon, though, as Lionel Messi's through-ball runs out of play with Junior Firpo desperately chasing.

  13. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique is not moving very well after coming off worse in a tackle.

    I'm not sure he's going to be able to continue here with just over 10 minutes remaining.


    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Two changes to report, as Atletico's Angel Correa comes off for Thomas Lemar and Barcelona bring on Arturo Vidal for Arthur.

  15. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Alvaro Morata continues to offer Gerard Pique plenty of problems. There's a real opportunity there for Atletico to exploit with Pique on a yellow.

    Meanwhile, Jan Oblak's shinpad has come off and he needs someone to go and put it back on for him. It's all happening.

  16. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    The home crowd are livid!

    Moments after Gerard Pique avoids a yellow card for a foul on Alvaro Morata, Junior Firpo is penalised for a much softer tackle.

    Koke is also booked for dissent in the aftermath. Things are getting heated!

  17. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Now then, Gerard Pique is playing a very, very dangerous game.

    Already on a yellow card, he flies into a tackle on Alvaro Morata and Atletico are awarded a free-kick.

    It looked worthy of a booking, but Pique survives and Koke's free-kick comes to nothing.

  18. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Atletico want a penalty as Clement Lenglet diverts a cross towards Marc-Andre ter Stegen, apparently using his shoulder.

    While the hosts continue to appeal Barca burst down the other end, but Antoine Griezmann's eventual volleyed shot misses the target.

  19. Post update

    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    Excellent work from Koke, who tracks back to rob Lionel Messi of possession just as it appeared the Argentine was about to unleash a bag full of trouble in the Atletico penalty area.

    Messi is adamant he was fouled, but that's as clean a tackle as you'll see.


    Atletico 0-0 Barcelona

    It's Diego Simeone who acts first.

    Joao Felix comes off, and on comes Vitolo for the home side.

    Not sure the fans sound too happy with that one.
