    • FC Barcelona
    • Getafe CF
    • 90+3' The final whistle goes, and Barca have claimed a vital three points. Stick around as the Madrid derby is coming right up!
    • 90+2' The ball reaches Albin in the Barca box. The forward birngsd the ball down on his chest with his back to goal, but that gives Barce time to regroup and clear the danger.
    • 90' The fourth official signals three minutes of added time.
    • 89' Barcelona substitution: Jeffren replaces Villa, who ahs now gone five games without a goal.
    • 89' That's Manu's ninth goal of the aseason in La Liga.
    • 88' GOAL!! Manu grabs something of a consolation for Getafe witrh a lovely volley! Milito just watches Mosquera's cross go past him and Getafe's top scorer guides a clinical volley into the top corner!
    • 86' Mosquera fells Mascherano with a late challenge. He's lucky not to be booked for that.
    • 84' Lionel Messi has equalled the record for most assists (17) within a single season for the last 20 years. (Infostrada)
    • 82' Alves fires in a teasing cross but codina is off his line to claim it.
    • 81' Barcelona substitution: Ibrahim Afellay replaces Iniesta.
    • 80' Even Valdes is getting in on the act now, playing a sort of give and go with Xavi!
    • 78' Barca have reverted to suffocating the life out of Getafe, who are chasing shadows as their opponents hog the possession.
    • 76' Barca win a corner. They take it short and the move fizzles out.
    • 75' Getafe substitution: Mosquero replaces Pareja.
    • 73' Mascherano slides in with a good challenge on Miku to stop the substitute's run down the right flank.
    • 72' Pep Guardiola is shouting and hollering on the touchline. He is not happy to see his team take their foot off the gas in the last 10 minutes or so.
    • 70' A rare corner for Getafe is sent to the far post and Manu gets his head on it... wide of the target! a great chance for Getafe's top scorer to get on the scoresheet goes begging!
    • 68' Barcelona substitution: Seydou Keita replaces Bojan.
    • 67' Getafe substitution: Sardinero replaces Arizmendi.
    • 65' Getafe are repelling wave after wave of Barca attacks at the moment. Too many last-ditch interceptions to mention.
    • 63' Remember, immediately following this match is the Madrid derby. Can Real keep pace with Barca at the Calderon? We'll find out soon enough.
    • 61' Messi has stepped things up a gear now as he evades three challenges en route to the edge of the box before finally losing the ball. It has been a quiet game by his very high standards.
    • 60' Getafe substitution: Miku replaces Casquero.
    • 59' Villa finds himself right in front of Codina with the ball at his feet, but he can only hit a tame effort right at the keeper!
    • 56' Villa is free in the box and tries to square a pass to the incoming Messi, but it's far too close to Codina who collects gratefully.
    • 54' Xavi leads a sweeping move forward from Barca, but on this occasion Getafe get the ball clear with the minimum of fuss. Mascherano tidies up and Barca will begin again.
    • 52' The deflection for the Bojan goal came off Cata Diaz, whose header also teed up Alves for the first goal. Not his best evening.
    • 51' Bojan's fifth league goal of the season has given Getafe a mountain to climb.
    • 50' GOAL!! Messi waits and waits on the edge of the box before playing in bojan, whose strike from the right takes a cruel deflection and Codina can only watch helplessly as it goes past him!
    • 48' Adriano reads the ball in for Arizmendi well and intercepts before the striker can get on the end of it.
    • 47' Alves is caught offside when he could have left the ball through for Bojan. Replays show it was a very tight decision.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1' The first half draws to a close, and Getafe should be happy they are still in this game.
    • 45' Villa is looking for his first goal in five games for Barca. He is already enduring his longest goal drought of the season.
    • 44' Villa receives the ball inside the box, shrugs off two men but is forced wide as he does so and fires on the turn into the side netting! So nearly two for Barca!
    • 43' More mesmeric passing from Barca, but the core of Getafe's defence is not letting them through.
    • 42' Manu has scored three of Getafe's last five goals, while he has also scored an own goal in that time.
    • 40' Iniesta makes a driving run forward, but tries to beat one man too many. Getafe are really under the cosh now.
    • 38' Villa chases a ball over the top and reaches it. He holds the play up, waits for Bojan's run and then plays across to him. Bojan loses his footing and goes down inside the box! Once again Barca have a penalty claim denied. Of the three, only the first one was a truly convincing claim.
    • 36' Now Barca have plenty of men surrounding the Getafe box. Alves squares a pass along the edge of the box for Xavi, who hits his first-time strike just wide of the far post!
    • 35' The last time Barca went two league games without a win was in May 2009.
    • 33' Getafe have numbers forward in this attack and Milito slips as the cross comes in and Casquero can shoot... Saved by Victor Valdes!! The Barca keeper denies Getafe a golden opportunity to draw level!
    • 32' Great dummy from Iniesta and Villa has space inside the box to shoot... He wanted too much time, and the shot is blocked by Marcano.
    • 31' Messi has scored in each of the last four league meeting between these two sides.
    • 29' Villa goes down again inside the box! Almost a carbon copy of the first incident! Again the referee gives no spot-kick, but this time he does book Villa for diving! The SPain striker did make a meal of that. This time Cata Diaz appeared to move his leg out of the way just in time.
    • 28' Miguel Torres puts in a good sliding challenge on Bojan.
    • 27' Lionel Messi has scored in three of his last four games at the Camp Nou.
    • 26' It will be Alves who strikes... the shot clips the wall and Codina can't stop it going out for a corner.
    • 25' Cata Diaz's poor evening just got a little worse as he gets booked for a foul on Messi which gives Barca a free-kick in an ideal area for a strike.
    • 24' Bojan battles his way thorugh and finds Villa out wide. He continues his run into the box but the return pass is intercepted. A second goal seems only a matter of time at the moment.
    • 23' There is a round of applause going all the way around the ground as the clocks shows 22 - Eric Abidal's squad number.
    • 21' The attack is not dead, however, and Bojan's square pass flashes across the face of goal before Iniesta fires over the bar!
    • 20' Great move forward from Barca and Villa gets into the box where he is tripped... NO PENALTY!! Villa was clearly feled by Cata Diaz's trailing leg, but the referee waves play on!
    • 19' Barca have now scored in each of their last 27 league games.
    • 18' That is only Dani ALves's second league goal of the season, but it must rank as one of the best in his career. Stunning.
    • 17' GOAL!! WHAT A GOAL!! What a goal from Dani Alves! a ball into the Getafe box is headed away as far as the edge of the box where Alves fires an awesome outswinging strike that flashes past Codina! The keeper had no chance!
    • 16' Xavi gets into the box on the right and sqares a pass towards Bojan... turned behind for a corner.
    • 15' Arizmendi marauds in from the left wing and plays a great one-two with Casquero. He gets to the edge of the box but can't get a clean shot away past Milito's challenge.
    • 14' Michel's team have not won away from home in 2011. In fact, their only league win of this calendar year was a 4-1 victory over Deportivo back in February.
    • 13' Bojan zips down to the byline and almost has the beating of Miguel Torres, but has to make an about-turn and head back up the field.
    • 12' Andres Iniesta with a late challenge on Parejo in the centre circle. He's was fortunate not to be booked there.
    • 11' Barca have won their last four meetings with Getafe in Catalonia in all competitions.
    • 10' When these two sides met at the Colleseum Alfonso Perez back in November Messi, Daviid Villa and Pedro all scored in a 3-1 win. Manu got the goal for Getafe.
    • 9' Messi now picks out Villa with a neat ball through and Codina is off his line to gather. He can't hold on to the ball and it breaks loose in the area, but the play ends with a goal kick to the visitors.
    • 8' Barca do break to great effect as Xavi picks out Messi with a great ball and the little Argentine swivles and hits an overhead kick! Codina spread himself well to block the effort..
    • 7' Barca almost get caught cold as a long flat ball upfield beats Alves and Manu is on to it. The ball runs through for Arizmendi, but his control lets him down and Barca can launch the counter.
    • 6' Patient play from Barca as they have Getafe pinned back in their own final third. The champions win the first corner of the match.
    • 5' Adriano knocks the ball past Victor sanchez and darts into the box, but Codina is off his line quickly to gather up the ball.
    • 4' Getafe have only won once at the Camp Nou in La Liga, a 2-0 win in the 2007-08 season. (Opta)
    • 3' Gabi Milito heads away the free-kick which is sent in from deep. Bojan has already ddropped very deep in search of the ball early on. This is only his sixth league start of the season.
    • 2' Barca yet to give Getafe as much as a touch. Now they have the ball and Manu charges down the left flank and is tripped cynically by Dani Alves. An early booking for the Brazilian.
    • 1' Barca kick-off and we're underway!
    • 19:00 The players are out on the pitch. Before the game kicks off, a message is shown on the big screen in tribute to those who losts their lives in the recent disaster in Japan.

    • 18:45 Barca star Lionel Messi plays despite still having treatment on a bruised knee from last weekend while the injured Carles Puyol, Pedro and Maxwell all miss out. French defender Eric Abidal is recovering from surgery to remove a tumour from his liver and is, understandably, also sidelined, which means Gabi milito and Adriano line up at centre-back and left-back respectively. Abidal has successful tumour op
    • 18:40 Barca can extend their lead at the top of the table back to eight points with a win this evening - at least until Real Madrid play local rivals Atletico later this evening. Getafe can up one place to 10th with a rare win in Catalonia, assuming Mallorca claim a win over Mallorca in the first of Saturday's matches, which is almost over. La Liga table
