    • 90+4' And that's it! What a win for Getafe!
    • 90+3' Miku has the ball in the Barca half and just needs to hold the ball up, but he loses it and here comes one final wave of pressure - Messi's onside! Hits the post! Pedro on the rebound and it's saved by Moya!
    • 90+2' One last Getafe counter attempt but Valdes comes well out of goal to clear the punt upfield.
    • 90+1' But here come Barca again. Villa through to Keita who squares to Messi and he scores! No, the flag went up, Keita was offside.
    • 90' The visitors have three minutes of added time to salvage a point.
    • 89' Messi's shot is deflected off for another corner, which he takes himself and Busquets collects at the near post and holds up before going down dramatically. It's a poor attempt to buy a penalty and the referee sees through it, booking the midfielder.
    • 88' Time is running out for Barca. Who would have predicted this?
    • 87' Getafe break and the sub Rios releases Miku who gets sight of goal away from Abidal and fires wide. Rios was there to receive a return pass but Miku went for glory.
    • 86' Decent cross from Pedro, headed away by Lopo.
    • 84' Getafe bring off creator of the goal Sarabia for Pedro Rios.
    • 83' Miku booked for a late slide on Abidal.
    • 82' Pedro gets into the area again, but his shot is scuffed and Moya collects. The keeper then punches away a dangerous cross which bounces awkwardly in front of him.
    • 81' Cuenca and Messi's team-work just outside the box is cut out.
    • 80' Pedro's in on the right-hand side! Good parry from Moya! Barcelona have their 12th corner.
    • 78' Xavi's free-kick hits the wall.
    • 77' Handball from Lopo this time, 20 yards from goal and dead central. He gets booked for that one.
    • 76' Another Barca corner fails to create a significant chance.
    • 75' Messi has a shot closed down from the 'D'.
    • 73' Double switch from Barca to try and rescue this: Pedro replaces Sanchez while Maxwell makes way for Cuenca.
    • 72' Castro is booked for a handball.
    • 71' That was Valera's first goal for Getafe. And what a time to open your account.
    • 70' Pique's pass upfield goes astray - to the roar of the home fans.
    • 69' Mascherano was all set to come on, but now it's young Isaac Cuenca who's stood beside Guardiola in the technical area.
    • 68' All those Barcelona corners (nine) and Getafe score from their second.
    • 67' Miku turns and shoots, it takes a deflection and they have a corner of their own. Sarabia with a good delivery.. AND VALERA HEADS IT IN! Getafe take the lead!
    • 66' Said corner fails to get beyond the near post, and Messi's cross moments later from the right goes straight to Moya.
    • 65' Keita comes on for Thiago before Barca take their next corner.
    • 64' The home side counter, but Castro wastefully goes for goal from distance when passing options were there.
    • 63' A few half hearted shouts for a penalty against Diaz who makes contact with Sanchez inside the box, but nothing is given.
    • 62' Dangerous cross from Castro is wisely left by Maxwell as it had a little too much pace on it for the blue shirts in the box. Goal kick to Barcelona.
    • 61' Alves overlaps from the right into the box to latch onto Xavi's raking ball, but the offside trap catches him out by inches.
    • 60' Barca take a free-kick quickly, but Messi's final ball is intercepted.
    • 58' Good lofted through pass from Messi to pick out Maxwell's run down the left, but the Brazillian was offside.
    • 57' Casquero volleys clear an Alves cross from the right.
    • 56' It's played short this time to Messi who cuts into the box and has his shot deflected into the arms of Moya.
    • 55' Another Barca corner coming up
    • 54' Getafe break and it's the right-back Valera who's going to get a shot in from outside the area, but he drags it wide of the far post.
    • 53' Alves gets forward on the right, but loses possession cheaply with a poor pass attempt.
    • 51' And now Villa has a low cross attempt along the face of the goal cleared for a corner.
    • 50' We finally have the free-kick from the foul now, 25 yards out just to the left of centre. Xavi's delivery is good and Villa gets on the end of it! Off target.
    • 49' Alberto Lopo warms up quickly and comes on for the hurt Mane.
    • 48' Mane has gone down out of the blue. Looks like he's tweaked his hamstring.
    • 47' Barca start off bright and Casquero goes into the book for a foul on Thiago.
    • 46' Getafe get us back underway.
    • 45+2' And there's the whistle: Getafe go into the interval holding the champions to a goalless stalemate.

    • 41' Another Barca corner on its way. Sanchez shoots and it's deflected over by Rafa Lopez. Getafe again get the corner clear.
    • 40' Xavi cuts out another Getafe attack. Good energy from the hosts, and the longer they can keep Barca out the more confident you can see them becoming.
    • 38' Abidal loses possession and the visitors break through Lacen, who himself gives the ball away with a poor pass attempt.
    • 37' The ensuing corner comes to nothing.
    • 36' Villa collects a good ball over the top and pulls back to Sanchez, who can't find space for a shot. He goes back to Messi, decent cross-field pass to Alves and the centre back to Sanchez! One-handed save by Moya!

    • 34' Dogged defending from Getafe to thwart the threats of Alves and Sanchez in quick succession.

    • 31' Thiago concedes a free-kick with a handball.
    • 29' Messi has wriggled his way through the defence to latch onto Sanchez's pass! Great block from the outrushing Moya! Sanchez tries to follow up with the keeper out of position, but it's deflected behind for another corner.

    • 22' Messi has space on the right, but is unable to pick out the right assist and Getafe sweep up.
    • 21' Barca fail to clear the corner delivery and Miku half-volleys over the bar. Decent chance that.
    • 20' The free-kick is whipped into the danger area and Busquets is inadvertedly mowed down by his own keeper as Valdes rushes out to try and deal with it. Corner kick coming up.
    • 19' Maxwell earns the first yellow card of the contest with a check on Valera.
    • 18' A decent early ball in from Dani Alves almost picks out Villa. Once again, the defence are resolute.
    • 17' Another Getafe break is rushed and they lose the ball.
    • 15' Michel cuts out a Barca pass and initiates a counter, but he and Miku find themselves outnumbered.
    • 14' A Mane low cross is disappointing and doesn't get past Pique.
    • 13' Messi weaves his way into the box, and despite losing his balance initially he's able to shoot at goal only to have his effort blocked by dilligent defending.
    • 12' A Michel cross goes straight to Valdes.
    • 11' Moya does well to rush out and collect a final ball attempt from Sanchez looking for Thiago.
    • 10' Messi and Villa work well in tandem, and their series of quick passes between each other lead to a Maxwell cross which is closed down by Valera.
    • 8' He curls for the top corner, but it's just off target. However, when it ripples the net from the other side after bouncing off the goal support, the Barca fans at the other end of the stadium begin celebrating! Always a classic faux-pas in football.
    • 7' Stalling aplenty here, but once the wall is finally in place it looks as if Messi will take this one.
    • 6' Despite being fouled just outside the box, Villa is able to try to play Sanchez through. When that fails, the referee brings it back for the free-kick.
    • 5' Getafe look to burst forward, but Maxwell cuts out the threat.
    • 3' A second consecutive corner follows the first, from which Abidal fires over.
    • 2' Villa with the first shot of the game! Saved at the expense of a corner at the near post!
    • 1' Barca waste no time getting their usual possession play going, no doubt spurred on by the fact that Real Madrid have just won once again in the derby game against Atletico.
