    • Sevilla FC
    • FC Barcelona
    • 90+5' The sending off has changed the whole mood of this match. There goes the final whistle. What a finish! A 3-2 win for Barca. They remain top of the table. And unbeaten with six straight wins this term.
    • 90+2' GOAL! Villa slams the ball into the net, and suddenly Barca are heading for three points. Would you believe it? One-two with Messi and Villa sends the shot crashing into the net.
    • 89' Five minutes to be added to this match. We are into them now.
    • 88' Michel is furious about that decision, and I think he has been sent to the stands for his troubles.
    • 87' GOAL! Fabregas scores for Barca and that is surely going to earn the visitors a point. Looked like handball by Thiago in the build-up to that goal. Fine finish from Fabregas from the pass by Messi. No chance for Palop.
    • 86' Messi trying to pick out Villa in the box, but there are so many white shirts in the home box to clear the danger.
    • 85' Sevilla wall jumps to block the Xavi free-kick before they defend well to clear the corner. Sevilla so close now to this win.
    • 84' Fabregas brought down by Manu and the visitors have a free-kick outside of the box. 20 yards.
    • 83' Luna has been brought on for Negredo for the home side.
    • 82' Tello just offside from the pass by Villa. Sevilla looking to get men forward in these closing moments.
    • 81' The home fans making so much noise. Barca trying to pick holes in the Sevilla defence but Spahic brings it clear for his side.
    • 80' Cesc Fàbregas has scored his first away goal from outside box in La Liga. Needs another one now right enough.
    • 79' Chance for Villa, but his first touch just eludes him with Palop out of his goal. Into the final 10 minutes with this match in the balance.
    • 78' Palop out of his goal to claim the loose ball. Manu drags a shot wide from distance. Four yards wide of goal.
    • 77' And Barca shuffle their pack again as David Villa is brought on for Alves.
    • 76' Navas skips away from Thiago, who does enough to get back to close down the space. All or nothing now for Barca. Sevilla chasing the double over Barca and Real Madrid this term. Not too terrible.
    • 75' Thiago is wheeled on for Busquets. Barca have 14 minutes left to try to preserve this unbeaten start to the season in La Liga.
    • 74' Rakitic departs to be replaced by Kondogbia for Sevilla, who cling to this lead with only 10 men.
    • 73' Pedro has been booked for taking out Navas as he sped up the park. It is all happening out there now.
    • 72' Free-kick chance for Barca as Messi fires a free-kick straight into the opposition wall.
    • 71' MEDEL HAS BEEN SENT OFF! Deemed to have butted the face of Fabregas and suddenly the home side are down to 10 men.
    • 70' Change coming for Barca as Sanchez departs to be replaced by Tello.
    • 69' A yellow card coming here for Busquets after he was late on Cicinho. Really poor challenge. Fortunate not to see red there.
    • 68' Navarro back to head the ball behind from the cross by Pedro. Had to make that clearance with Sanchez lurking.
    • 67' Negredo has scored his first goal against Barcelona in La Liga after seven league meetings
    • 66' Fabregas with a superb cutback across the face of goal, but nobody following into convert the cross.
    • 65' Barca earn a free-kick at the other end. 25 yards from goal, but this time the move comes to nothing as Sanchez runs the ball out of play. Sevilla have the goalkick.
    • 64' Appeals for a penalty after Negredo tumbles to the deck under pressure from Alba. No penalty given, much to the chagrin of the home fans.
    • 63' Botia caught offside. Bit of a wasted opportunity it must be said with the corner not going straight into the mix.
    • 62' Alves puts the ball behind his own goal after a lovely little cross by Navas. Sevilla have their own corner.
    • 61' Negredo and Alves collide competing for a loose ball, and looks like the Sevilla forward is none too happy with that treatment.
    • 60' Palop throws himself across goal to tip Messi's free-kick over the bar. Stunning stop as that was heading right into the net.
    • 59' Messi taken out of the action around 30 yards from goal. Chance for Barca to have a shot at goal. Or will they look to float this into the mix.
    • 58' Song with a decent header out of defence, but Sevilla look very comfortable in possession. Fabregas finally collects in the middle of the park.
    • 57' Fabregas plays in Sanchez, but he can only squeeze the shot wide of goal under pressure from Spahic. Poor finish really from a man of his quality.
    • 56' Spahic makes a superb sliding tackle on Pedro. Barca have another corner here.
    • 55' Palop comes off his line to punch the ball clear from the cross by Alves. On we go with a 2-1 lead for Sevilla and Barca up against it.
    • 54' This match has come to life. A 2-1 lead for Sevilla, but you suspect there may a few more goals left in this contest.
    • 53' GOAL! Fabregas nets for Barca, who are suddenly right back in business. His first league goal since January. Superb finish finish from 23 yards out.
    • 52' Sanchez takes a tumble under pressure from Cicinho, but the referee waves play on. Not much in that.
    • 51' Sevilla so fired up for this match, and so are the fans, who are loving every minute of this action. Barca last failed to score against Villarreal back in January.
    • 50' Pedro smashes a shot at the Sevilla goal, but Medal clips the ball off his line with Botia also in there. Brilliant defending.
    • 49' Long, long way back for Barca now and suddenly the visitors are looking down the barrel. No central defenders really hurting the visting side.
    • 48' GOAL! Negredo races in on goal before chipping the ball over Alves. Song left for dead after Busquets had lost it. Brilliant finish. A 2-0 lead for Sevilla.
    • 47' No changes for Barca at the break. Barca have gone 23 games without failing to score. Will look to keep that run going.
    • 46' The second half is off and running. Can Barca bring themselves level in the second period?
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break! A 1-0 lead for Sevilla.
    • 45+1' We are into one minute of time added on in this absorbing first period.
    • 44' Alves giving the ball away under little or no pressure. Most un-Barca like play out there.
    • 43' Medel launches a hopeful effort at goal, but the ball is always heading wise. Sevilla looking good for their 1-0 lead as we approach the break.
    • 42' Navas and Negredo almost combine again, but Mascherano and Alba combine to snuff out the danger. Barca being given a serious going over in defence.
    • 41' Trochowski has been replaced by Manu. He has scored two goals in La Liga this season v Real Madrid and Barcelona - he only scored one in the league last term.
    • 40' Manu threatening to leave Busquets for dead, but the Barca player scurries back to make the tackle. Sevilla have a corner now.
    • 39' Spahic crashes into a superb tackle on Messi. Sevilla going at this match like it is a cup final here.
    • 38' Negredo sees a shot flash inches wide from 25 yards out with Valdes beaten. Brilliant effort with his favoured left foot.
    • 37' Trochowski is on the deck here and needing some treatment. Think he might be finished for the night. That would be a real blow to Sevilla.
    • 36' Alba steps up just in time to ensure Negredo is offside. That Sevilla forward line is causing Barca no end of problems.
    • 35' Alba doing well to focus on his business as Navas tried to wriggle free. Wins the ball and then a free-kick.
    • 34' Sevilla on the move again. As we stand, Sevilla will join Malaga on 14 points from six games - one behind Barca. The visiting side's biggest test of the season so far is proving just that this evening.
    • 33' Fabregas caught narrowly offside after a lovely little ball by Pedro. Brilliant by Pedro, but the Sevilla defence playing a high line and getting out quickly to leave the former Arsenal man alone.
    • 32' Navas is scampering around the park with some relish. That Barca defence not overly convincing with Cicinho playing Navas onside there.
    • 31' A booking for Rakitic after he was guilty of a clear handball in taking the ball away from Messi.
    • 30' Maduro with a brilliant block to stop Messi from walloping a loose ball into the net. That is a wonderful piece of defending. This game coming to the boil nicely.
    • 29' Medel's initial attempt deflected into the path of Trochowski off the feet of Mascherano. Not sure what Alves was doing there. He looked at Trochowski stick that in the net.
    • 28' GOAL! Trochowski smashes the ball through Valdes from 18 yards out. Awful defending by Barca and Sevilla have the lead.
    • 27' Ths game was expected to be tight and isn't disapponting so far in Seville. Here come the home side again.
    • 26' Messi drills the ball into the heart of the Sevilla box, but Negredo is back doing some sterling work to head clear for Sevilla.
    • 25' Spahic clatters into the back of Sanchez and the visitors have a free-kick here out wide.
    • 24' Offside flag goes up against Negredo in the middle of the Barca half. Wasn't too much in that.
    • 23' Navas almost gallops onto the pass from Negredo as Sevilla clear a cross from Alves. Sevilla content to sit and soak it up and launch these speedy counter attacks.
    • 22' Spahic guilty of a clear foul on Sanchez and this time the referee spots the foul. Barca build in the home half.
    • 21' Dani Alves tries a cute little ball into the heart of the home box, but easy enough take for Palop in the home goal. This game finely balanced so far.
    • 20' Negredo, Sevilla’s top scorer this season with three goals, has never scored in six previous appearances against Barcelona.
    • 19' Navas slides the ball to Rakitic, whose shot is dealt with well by Valdes in the Barca goal. That ball was travelling from 22 yards our so.
    • 18' Botia with a clear shoulder challenge on Messi, but somehow the referee misses it. Astonishing decision by the referee.
    • 17' Rakitic just failing to send Negredo clear with a little pass. Right idea, but Barca deal with the danger.
    • 16' Song showing quick feet in the middle of the park. Barca then fall into their passing style. Spahic forced to do a smart bit of defending deep in his own half.
    • 15' The passing movement before that move was Barca at their brilliant best. These two teams really going at this match with some pace.
    • 14' Brilliant stop by Palop to deny Messi before Sevilla scramble the ball clear. Messi got hold of that effort from 15 yards out.
    • 13' Negredo drills a shot wide of goal from the edge of the Barca box. Should have perhaps hit the target with that attempt. Sevilla looking sharp on the counter attack.
    • 12' Song forced to cut out a pass by Rakitic before Botía races back to block the run of Sanchez.
    • 11' Cicinho with a brilliant piece of covering play to make sure Messi can't dart clear 30 or so yards from the home goal.
    • 10' An offside flag goes up against Alexis Sanchez as Palop comes out of his goal to collect the loose ball. Brave goalkeeping.
    • 9' Sevilla appeal in vain after Song whacked the ball off the nearby Alba. Appeals for a penalty, but the referee is quick to wave play on.
    • 8' Fabregas slides the ball into the path of Pedro, whose ball across the face of goal is gathered by Palop. Decent sweeping move.
    • 7' Alba forced to get in ahead of Navas to head the ball back to Valdes in the Barca goal. That was excellent defending by the Barca player.
    • 6' Messi taken out of the game late by Maduro, who will have a hard job keeping Messi quiet all night long. Barca keeping the ball in the home half.
    • 5' Pitch is like a bowling green. Navarro comes across to win the ball from Alves.
    • 4' Teams for you: Sevilla: Palop; Navarro, Spahic, Botia, Cicinho; Medel, Rakitic, Maduro, Trochowski, Navas; Negredo////Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Song, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Fabregas; Sanchez, Pedro, Messi
    • 3' Pedro gets plenty of pace on a shot from distance, but the ball speeds over the bar. Barca looking to impress themselves upon this game early on.
