    Time:90'
    • Villarreal CF
    • Sporting Gijón
    • 90+5' There goes the whistle! Didn't look like a penalty, but the referee gives it and Sporting have rescued a 1-1 draw. They deserved their point. No doubt about that.
    • 90+2' GOAL FOR SPORTING! Diego Castro chips the ball down the middle as Diego Lopez dived to his right. The nine men are level at 1-1. Dramatic finish.
    • 90+1' PENALTY TO SPORTING! Would you believe it. Gonzalo is booked for taking down Novo.
    • 89' Going to be five minutes added to this one.
    • 88' Sporting down to nine men! Rossi is felled by Sastre, who is sent off with the striker set to race through on goal.
    • 87' Lopez comes from his goal to collect the free-kick from Canella.
    • 86' Cazorla departs to be replaced by Catala for the home side.
    • 85' Canella is brought down by Valero as Villarreal prepare to make another change.
    • 84' Wholly unconvincing display by Villarreal, but looks like hey are going to see this one through.
    • 83' Mubarak brings down De las Cuevas and Cases will take the free-kick. Cleared by Valero for the home team.
    • 82' Canella with the free-kick into the area. Botia's control lets him down at the vital moment as the ball spins behind for a goalkick.
    • 81' Wasted opportunity for Sporting as Novo knocks wide off the goal before Mubarak plays a backpass from 50 yards out.
    • 80' Former Rangers striker Nacho Novo is on for André Castro as Sporting try to grab a point.
    • 79' Javier Matilla replaces Nilmar for Villarreal.
    • 78' A booking for Capdevila. Not sure what that was for.
    • 77' Barral hits a post! So unlucky. Lifted the ball over Lopez only for the ball to come back off a post and fly to safety. The 10 men really going for this.
    • 76' Diego Castro showing some delightful skill, but the final ball is poor as Diego Lopez smothers the cross.
    • 75' Mubarak goes for goal again from outside of the area. Again he is disappoitning as the shot flies over the bar.
    • 74' Villarreal will aim to claim their spot in the last eight of the Europa League when Leverkusen visit on Thursday, but work to be done here.
    • 73' Sporting still on the offensive. Diego Castro given offside when he was clearly on. The 10 men not lacking heart.
    • 72' All a bit quiet out there, but Nilmar tries to get the home side going before Mubarek smashes a shot well wide from distance.
    • 71' Rossi tries to make a run through the Sporting rearguard. He looks across the line, but sees the flag up. All a bit scrappy out there.
    • 70' Cazorla tries a throughball to Nilmar, but too much pace on the pass as Juan Pablo collects.
    • 69' Sastre darts down his right flank, but the cross is poor. Easily headed out by the home defence.
    • 68' Rivera departs to be replaced by Roberto Canella for Sporting.
    • 67' Another booking coming here for Cuellar. He is heading off the park to be replaced by Juan Pablo.
    • 66' Cuellar is back on his feet. Not sure how fit he is, but Sporting are going to make a change as they begin life with 10 men.
    • 65' Red card! Sporting are down to 10 men. Jose Angel has been sent off for tapping the referee on the back to make a point. It is a second yellow. Crazy stuff.
    • 64' Cuellar races from his line to smash the ball away from Nilmar. He is needing a bit of treatment.
    • 63' Cross from Nilmar finds Rossi. He fires a shot at goal, but wide of the target from the edge of the box. Better play by Villarreal.
    • 62' Villarreal perhaps a bit jaded after their 3-2 win at Bayern Leverkusen in the Europa League on Thursday, but here they come now.
    • 61' Rossi throws over a delightful cross. The ball deflects off a visiting shirt before landing in the arms of Cuellar, who is happy to collect.
    • 60' Hernandez is booked for a late challenge on Nilmar. Cynical late challenge.
    • 59' Wakaso Mubarak replaces Cani for the home side, who are not exactly impressing themselves upon this encounter.
    • 58' De las Cuevas tries to take on Capdevila, but he hoists the cross well out of play. Poor delivery from the Sporting man.
    • 57' Gonzalo hoists the ball out wide, but Nilmar fails to keep that in play. Throw-in to Sporting.
    • 56' Cases smashes a shot at goal from 25 yards, but that effort is well over the bar. Needs to be better than that.
    • 55' Cases brings down Cani and that is a free-kick to the home side. Sporting continue to look for the equaliser.
    • 54' Sporting on the ball, but Diego Castro loses it before Gonzalo heads out the cross from De las Cuevas.
    • 53' Cuellar races off his line to nod the ball away with Rossi threatening. Alert keeping from the Sporting man.
    • 52' Diego Castro tries to get a shot at the home goal, but Rodriguez makes a brave block to ensure the shot doesn't hit the target from inside the area.
    • 51' Barral caught offside from the pass of Castro. Just offside. Decent play by Sporting.
    • 50' Barral caught offside from the pass of Cases. A few of the visiting substitutes getting warmed up on the side of the pitch.
    • 49' Castro wedged between Gonzalo and Diego Lopez, but no appeals for a penalty. That could have been given as the ball drops behind the home goal.
    • 48' Cazorla has a go from distance, but wide of the target as Cuellar dives to make sure it wasn't hitting the target.
    • 47' No changes at the break for either side. Bruno wins a free-kick for the home side.
    • 46' Sporting get the second period off and running.
    • 45' There goes the whistle! A 25th goal of the season for Rossi and Villarreal have a 1-0 lead at the break. Bit harsh on Sporting it must be said.
    • 44' Only a minute to be added in this half.
    • 43' Long ball across the pitch from Valero to Nilmar, but Hernandez knocks the ball out of play.
    • 42' De las Cuevas opt not to put the ball into the area and Villarreal suddenly on the break.
    • 41' Villareal with 57% of possession and the lead. Sporting win a corner.
    • 40' Musacchio was guilty of foul play there. Pushed the opposing player, but the referee or his assistant never saw the contact with Castro off the ball.
    • 39' Castro is down on the deck and rolling around like he has been taken out by a sniper. He is complaining that he was elbowed in the neck.
    • 38' Sporting have netted 25 goals in La Liga this term. You can see why when you study some of their play. Lack a cutting edge.
    • 37' Superb tackle by Sastre on Rossi. Got that spot on. The home fans are booing, but nothing wrong with that challenge.
    • 36' Jose Angel is booking for a blatant handball as Cani tried the chip up the line.
    • 35' Bruno rises to head out the cross by Barral. Sporting certainly launching a spirted recovery here.
    • 34' De las Cuevas breaks the offside trap. Tries the cuback, but the ball falls for Lopez in the home goal. Chance gone in what was a good position.
    • 33' Offside flag goes up against Botia from Rivera's pass.
    • 32' Not exactly jumping inside the ground. Cases overhits a pass aimed towards Barral.
    • 31' Rivera swings in the free-kick, but there is a bit of pushing in the area and Diego Lopez will take the free-kick in his own box.
    • 30' Sastre tries a one-two, but the ball races out of play before Bruno brings down De las Cauvas. Free-kick to Sporting.
    • 29' Sporting were all over the place at the goal. That has rocked the visiting side, no doubt about that.
    • 28' Cani goes for goal seconds later, but the ball flies behind the Sporting goal. Not sure if that was a cross or a shot by the home player.
    • 27' GOAL FOR VILLARREAL! A horrid mistake by Cuellar as he misses the corner. The ball drops to Rossi who rolls home his 15th goal of the season. What was the keeper thinking of?
    • 26' Cazorla dinks a ball into the heart of the box, but nodded behind by Botia. Corner to Villarreal.
    • 25' Cani takes a dive, but the referee buys it. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 24' Valero goes to ground. The home fans want a free-kick, but the referee sees nothing wrong in the challenge by Cases.
    • 23' De las Cuevas showing some fine skills down his own right flank beofre he smacks a shot straight at Lopez from outside of the box.
    • 22' Rivera wallops a shot well over the bar from 30 yards out. Was leaning back when he launched that at goal.
    • 21' Musacchio clatters Barral late, but no free-kick. That was a fair bit late that challenge, but the referee didn't want to know.
    • 20' Villarreal very easy on the eye on the ball. Capdevila's cross is too far for Rossi as Pichu comes to collect with some ease.
    • 19' Nilmar showing some lovely ball skills. He is dancing around outside of the box. Rossi plays in Santi Cazorla, but his control lets him down. Sporting make the clearance.
    • 18' Andre Castro has a go at goal from distance, but doesn't get hold of the shot as it flies well past a post.
    • 17' Mario on the run down his right flank as Villarreal try to build some momentum, but Sporting holding firm at the moment.
    • 16' Diego Castro catches Cani with a late one and that is a free-kick to Villarreal.
    • 15' Referee coming to make sure that the ball is in ideal condition. Cuellar was looking a bit concerned about it in that visiting goal.
    • 14' Nilmar smacks a shot into the sidenetting from inside the box. Great pass from Cani. Chance missed. Great play by Cani.
    • 13' Castro guilty of foul play on Cani. Free-kick to the home side deep in their own half.
    • 12' Diego Castro has another go at the home goal, but not enough power or direction on the shot as Diego Lopez takes with some ease.
    • 11' Villarreal keeping the ball at the back. Shot went in from Jose Angel that saw a couple of teammates caught offside.
    • 10' Barral caught ofside in the home box. Sporting throwing plenty of men up the park.
    • 9' Andre Castro beats the offside trap. Narrow angle, but drills it just wide of the home goal. Good effort. Warning to Villarreal.
    • 8' Sporting Gijon have collected 16 points from their past 10 games. They are in a bit of form and are looking confident on the ball.
    • 7' Capdevlia tries to pick out a team-mate from out wide, but can only find an opposing player. Sporting can launch an attack.
    • 6' Nilmar and Rossi trying to link, but Sastre is there to make the tackle. Villarreal go backwards from the corner kick.
    • 5' Casesl gets a shot at goal from outside the area, but straight at Diego Lopez. Sporting certainly throwing enough bodies forward.

    • 3' Gonzalo forced to make a timely tackle as De las Cuevas bounded towards the edge of the Villarreal box. Villarreal on the ball.
