    • 81' Another chance for Barca! This time Fabregas is the provider, sliding in a ball for Villa, who draws a good save out of Jaime. Pedro then somehow misses an open goal on the rebound!
    • 80' Barca chance! Fabregas creates a shooting chance, but bends his shot just wide. That would have been quite special.

    • 60' Chance for Valladolid! A deep cross finds Oscar, who brings the ball down well with his chest and skilfully shifts the ball into a shooting position, but Valdes comes out to smother well.
