    • FC Barcelona
    • Osasuna
    • 90+2' The full-time whistle goes at the Camp Nou, and it has been a quite imperious performance from Barcelona, who have thrashed Osasuna 8-0 with a hat-trick from the stunning Lionel Messi! What more can you say about such an incredible performance? Thanks for joining me!
    • 90+1' Messi is ruled offside as he chests down a cross from Alves which hits the crossbar!
    • 89' Villa drives down the left at pace once more, and he very nearly muscles his way into the box.
    • 87' It's breathtaking stuff from Barcelona, who continue to dumbfound their opponents with mesmeric passing and quick one-touch football.
    • 85' David Timor replaces Francisco Punal, while Braca attack once more through Thiago.
    • 84' Damia is booked for a crude infringement, and he can't really argue about that.
    • 83' Will Barca make it 10 this evening? It's a patient move progressing in the hosts' half right now, and Osasuna are sitting extremely deep.
    • 81' Fabregas is thriving in this new role in the centre of the field, and Osasuna cannot subdue the former Arsenal midfielder.
    • 80' Poor Osasuna! Barcelona are absolutely incessant, and the hosts get straight back into their stride...
    • 78' GOAL!!!!! MESSI MAKES IT EIGHT! Wow, what a goal! Villa bides his time before slotting a precise ball into the path of Messi, who fools Fernandez with a dummy before tapping home!
    • 77' Barcelona continue to cruise, and this is emphatic!
    • 76' GOAL!!!!! VILLA BAGS HIS SECOND - IT'S SEVEN! Fabregas does all the hard work, capitalising on some very shoddy Osasuna defending to break through and lay the ball off on a plate for Villa, who simply taps home!
    • 75' Fabregas is dictating the play from the centre of the field now in the absence of Xavi.
    • 73' Ibrahima is booked for a rather cynical handball on halfway to prevent another swift Barca counter.
    • 71' Alves makes a dynamic run down the right at pace to ensure that Osasuna are again pushed firmly back inside their own half.
    • 69' Villa attempts a piledriver from range, but it is blocked inadvertently by Bertran as Osasuna get a reprieve.
    • 67' GOAL, BUT DISALLOWED! Ibrahima is offside as the ball loops over Valdes and into the net after striking his head, and the goal is disallowed!
    • 65' What a chance for the visitors as Lolo flies through on goal, refusing to square the ball to Ibrahima alongside him - he should have passed!
    • 63' Ibrahima replaces Raul Garcia as Osasuna make a change, and that is their second.
    • 62' Xavi departs to a hero's ovation, as he should do, and on comes Afellay to provide some fresh legs. Fabregas slots into a more central role.
    • 61' What more can you ask of Fernandez? The keeper storms out and blocks Messi's shot with a sprawling dive, and that was brilliant!
    • 59' Alves drills a quite stunning low drive from all of 30 yards, but it zips agonisingly wide of the far post!
    • 57' GOAL!!!!! IT'S SIX! Messi picks out Xavi with a perfectly-flighted assist, before the Barca captain loops the ball over the onrushing Fernandez with consummate ease - it's six!
    • 56' Barca stroke the ball around patiently at the back, while Incakolanews tells me that it will finish 5-5 with Osasuna unlucky not to nick it in injury time. Hmmm...
    • 55' Guardiola takes the opportunity to replace Puyol with the game in the bag, and Maxwell comes on to replace the shaggy-haired defender.
    • 53' Cejudo goes down inside the Barca half, but the referee simply waves him up to his feet with no sympathy.
    • 52' MESSI HITS THE BAR! Ruben Gonzalez charges across to pressure Messi as he hones in on goal, so the forward unfurls a deft lob with the ball dropping off the top of the crossbar!
    • 51' Fernandez is swiftly off his line to gather a loose ball as Messi tries to find Villa with a direct pass.
    • 49' Dudulalah thinks it will be 7-0 to Barcelona in the end, while Spikesolie predicts 8-1! It will be intriguing to see...
    • 48' Raul Garcia is shown the yellow card for a late challenge on Busquets, and Osasuna are already stretched.
    • 47' Lolo wins a free kick on halfway, and Fabregas is slightly late into the tackle there.
    • 46' The second half is underway at the Camp Nou, and both sides make a change with Adriano coming on for Abidal, while Alvaro Cejudo comes on for Jukka Raitala.
    • - Justmess29 tweets: "At half time its 5-0...imagine what would be at end.Great answer to all critics!" AirMeCa says "5 more!" and Ahmedfouadeldin says: "2 more for Messi and the same for Fabregas - 9-1!" What do the rest of you think?
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at the Camp Nou, and Barcelona lead 5-0 courtesy of a brace from Messi, an own goal from Roversio and strikes from Fabregas and Villa - wow! It's been a quite scintillating first half from the hosts! How many more do you think Barcelona will score? Let me know your thoughts!
    • 45' Osasuna will be desperate for this first half to be over, and Villa exchanges passes with Fabregas out on the left to keep possession once more.
    • 44' Abidal closes down Damia and comes away with the ball once more, and Barcelona are all over the visitors.
    • 43' Lamah is booked for a rash challenge on Mascherano after being tackled himself, and Barca have a free kick in their own half.
    • 41' GOAL!!!!! MESSI MAKES IT FIVE - WHAT A ROUT! Messi is on hand to finish clinically once more, and the assist from Fabregas puts him in a perfect position to beat Fernandez yet again!
    • 40' GOAL!!!!! IT'S FOUR! It's one-way traffic at the Camp Nou as Villa streaks clear and fires a low shot which sees Roversio net an unfortunate own-goal!
    • 38' Alves goes down on halfway, and now Barcelona can build from this set piece in the Osasuna half.
    • 37' Villa is shown the yellow card for a very late challenge on Garcia, and that was justified.
    • 36' Barca again break from deep, and Osasuna only clear thanks to an interception from Bertran.
    • 35' Raul Garcia wins a free kick for Osasuna in the visitors' half, but Barca refuse to sit deep and continue to press up the field.
    • 34' GOAL!!!!! VILLA MAKES IT THREE! Abidal is again the source of the assist as he gets down the left and finds Villa, who keeps his composure superbly to round Fernandez and slot the ball into an empty net!
    • 33' Mascherano goes down on halfway, and there was nothing really in that. He gets to his feet gingerly.
    • 32' Abidal again careers down the left flank at pace, but this time he is impeccably challenged by Roversio.
    • 31' MESSI HITS THE POST! Another stunning move from Barcelona sees a pinpoint diagonal pass from Xavi pick out Messi, whose downward header strikes the foot of the near post!
    • 30' Busquets drops deep and continues to spray the ball around from just in front of the back four, and Osasuna are really struggling to mark up.
    • 29' Messi races down the left once more, and somehow he manages to backheel to Thiago with three players around him.
    • 27' Lolo forces his way down the left and cuts the ball back for Punal on the edge of the penalty area, but his low shot is gathered by Valdes!
    • 26' ABIDAL HITS THE BAR! A stunning cross from Messi picks out Abidal, who races into the box and heads powerfully against the crossbar with Fernandez comprehensively beaten!
    • 25' Fabregas hurtles into the box at pace, only to see his snap shot blocked excellently by Fernandez with Messi unable to convert the follow up!
    • 24' Abidal launches a long ball upfield to Villa, and the left-back maraudes up the field superbly before crossing too deep for Fabregas.
    • 23' It's mesmeric passing from Barcelona, who stroke the ball around superbly to keep Osasuna firmly under the cosh.
    • 22' Alves cannot quite cut off a slick through ball from Xavi, and there is at last some respite for Osasuna.
    • 21' Fabregas goes down clutching his back on halfway, and Raitala is rightly penalised.
    • 20' Brilliant one-touch football again sees Barcelona create space which doesn't seem to be there, and it's tough going for Osasuna!
    • 19' Thiago battles hard to get the ball back for Barca on halfway, and the hosts can launch another attack.
    • 18' Abidal recovers superbly after being caught out of position by Damia, and he clears the danger.
    • 17' Fabregas harries the Osasuna midfield superbly, and he is covering every blade of grass as Barcelona work off the ball.
    • 16' Messi is penalised for tugging with Gonzalez, and that could easily have gone either way.
    • 15' Guardiola waves his arms around frantically as the hosts stroke the ball around in their half.
    • 14' It's all so easy for Barcelona already, and Osasuna already look thoroughly despondent!
    • 13' GOAL!!!!! FABREGAS MAKES IT TWO! A stunning ball over the top from Messi is coolly volleyed beyond Fernandez by Fabregas, and Barcelona assume a commanding 2-0 lead already!
    • 12' Mendilibar is out on the touchline barking orders at his side, who are being very stretched right now.
    • 11' It's a typically fluid formation from Barcelona as the front five rotate endlessly causing havoc across the pitch.
    • 10' Fabregas drops very deep to spray the ball around, and the midfielder is everywhere right now.
    • 9' Villa bides his time out on the left wing as he collects the ball from Xavi, and Barcelona are dominating possession, as expected.
    • 8' The corner eventually breaks loose to Messi, who drills a low shot on target with Fernandez parrying wide once more.
    • 7' A rasping shot from Villa draws a fine sprawling save from Fernandez down low to his right, and a corner is conceded!
    • 6' Alves loses out to Lamah, but the ball falls loose once more and Barcelona can rebuild from deep.
    • 5' GOAL!!!!!! MESSI GIVES BARCELONA THE LEAD! A stunning raking pass from Busquets picks out Alves, who heads across the six-yard box to the back post where Messi is on hand to turn the ball into the net! How many more?
    • 4' Fabregas finds Alves out on the right, but his cross is cleared away comfortably by Raitala.
    • 3' There is a moment of real uncertainty at the back for Barcelona as first Abidal is beaten to a high ball by Damia, then Martinez has a looping cross bounce off the bar!
    • 2' With Pedro on the bench, Fabregas will be expected to get much further forward and he picks up the ball out on the left to get going.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Camp Nou, and Barcelona kick us off and immediately set about stroking the ball around in their own half.
    • 18:55 Right, we're all set at the Camp Nou, with the banners being waved wildly around the ground and Pep Guardiola just emerging from the tunnel to take his spot on the touchline.
