    • 90+3' Ozil has lost it completely! Another red card has been brandished. Not sure who to...utter chaos. Horrific challenge by Marcelo on Fabregas. Two-footed lunge. Mourinho has pushed somebody in the face. What a finish to this one.
    • 90+3' A red card for Marcelo! A straight red, and there is a lot of pushing and shoving now. Chaos out there. Both sets of players involved. Utter mayhem on the touchline.
    • 90+1' Four minutes to be added, and we have played almost two of them. Barca on the verge here. Valdes is booked for a spot of time-wasting.

    • 88' Barca coach Guardiola is telling his side to concentrate as Marcelo is late on Adriano.

    • 86' GOAL!! Messi is surely the matchwinner for Barca!! A magnificent finish from the little Argentina forward as he converts Adriano's cross. A stunning finish from eight yards out.

    • 84' A booking for Coentrao as he tried to tackle Ardiano only to catch him late.
    • 83' Fabregas is on for Barcelona with Pedro off. Meanwhile, Carvalho has taken a sore one trying to cut out the cross from Adriano.
    • 82' GOAL!! Benzema scores for Real!! A frantic scramble in the box before Benzema pounces to net from five yards. We are all square at 2-2. And 4-4 on aggregate. What a match.
    • 81' Long throw from Sergio Ramos. Met by the head of Mascherano before Valdes comes out to collect the ball.
    • 80' Pedro down on the deck again after Marcelo's challenge. Meanwhile, Fabregas could be making his debut for Barca in these closing minutes.
    • 79' Pedro charges into the box, but he can't escape the attentions of Marcelo. Real looking to push forward. They need a goal, and they need one quickly.
    • 78' Ramos and Adriano involved in quite a battle before Ozil departs to be replaced by Kaka. Not a bad figure to bring on.
    • 77' Pique back to Valdes before he thumps the ball up the park. Barca trying to close this match out in the closing 13 minutes.
    • 76' Adriano goes down like he has been shot, and Sergio Ramos is booked for a foul on him. Adriano needing a spot of treatment.
    • 75' Pepe again fouls as he takes out Pepe late. He must be sailing close to the wind out there with the number of fouls he has committed
    • 74' Busquets taking no chances as Ronaldo threatend to cut a dash to the home goal. He clears to huge applause.
    • 73' Adriano has been thrown on to take over from Villa.
    • 72' Think Barca are looking at a change here. Ronaldo clips Abidal, and Barca have the free-kick in their own half.
    • 71' Real spurn a terrific chance from the corner. Barca caught ball watching, but Sergio Ramos rises to head wide of goal from five yards out. Should have been the equaliser.
    • 70' Pedro is down and in need of a bit of treatment. Meanwhile, Real have a corner.
    • 69' Glorious chance for Benzema at the other end, but he drills the volley wide of the target from inside the Barca area. Players beginning to tire now.
    • 68' Pepe is lucky to be on the park after manhandling Pique in the area. Referee missed it. Was a certain red card.
    • 67' Xavi with the corner kick into the area, but Busquet heads over the bar. Should have scored. Was a free header. Glorious chance for Barca, but no goal.
    • 66' Iniesta goes pass two men as if they are not there before Messi forces Casillas to claw a low shot past a post. Corner to Barca.
    • 65' Benzema beaten to the ball by Alves before he pulls the Barca player back. A bit of frustration from the Real forward.
    • 64' Wonder if we are going to see Cesc this evening? Mourinho is as animated as his team. He is kicking every ball.
    • 63' Di Maria departs to be replaced by Higuain for Real.
    • 62' Free-kick chance for Barca. Messi with the chip, but Villa heads over the bar from 15 yards out.
    • 61' Alonso and Iniesta tangle before Pepe takes out Messi. Going to be action taken here as the Real defender Pepe is booked.
    • 60' Ronaldo on the charge for Real, but he is tracked by Busquets. Real haven't given this one up yet.
    • 59' Few chances this half so far. All got a bit scrappy as Messi is penalised for a late foul on Sergio Ramos.
    • 58' Ramos gets a shot away inside the box under pressure from Abidal, but he has lifted that well over the bar. Cesc Fabregas out on the touchline warming up.
    • 57' Next goal is going to be crucial. The visitors can't afford to fall 3-1 down. The noise immense in the Camp Nou.
    • 56' Lovely pass by Marcelo into the path of Di Maria, but he is narrowly offside. Ball back with Valdes in the Barca goal.
    • 55' Ronaldo and Busquets pick up bookings for mouthing off after that Marcelo incident with Messi. Messi not happy with the Brazilian defender.
    • 54' Messi down after being caught by Marcelo. That was a dirty bit of play by Marcelo. Lucky he is not off after trying to kick Messi.
    • 53' Ronaldo on the charge. He goes past Alves, but knocks a sloppy shot straight at Valdes. Poor play really.
    • 52' Pepe back to make the block on Villa before he dives. A bit theatrical, but Real earn the free-kick and they can clear.
    • 51' A quieter start to this second period. Had to calm a little after that rousing first half. Barca still with the same team on the pitch that won the Champions League final in May.
    • 50' Valdes out quickly to knock the ball long up the park with Benzema threatening. Had to be quick there.
    • 49' Barca leading 4-3 on aggregate in this match over the two legs. Alves pushes Ronaldo before Barca get back on the ball seconds later.
    • 48' Alonso just knocks a free-kick from deep straight out of the park. Bit of a waste with Carvalho up from the back among the other big men.
    • 47' News to bring you of a change with Khedira wheeled off for Real and Marcelo brought into the action.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second half of this match.
    • 45' The referee calls time on the half. Barca lead 2-1. An exceptional half of football. Real have been as good as Barca, but they don't have Messi. He has been the difference as the home side head up the tunnel to the applause of a teeming Camp Nou.
    • 44' Not going to be much time added to this half. I think everybody could do with a tea break.
    • 43' Superb play by Pique to backheel the ball for Messi to race through and score. The home fans in party mood. Mourinho looking a bit dazed. His side have done little wrong.
    • 42' GOAL!! Messi for Barca!! What a finish, what a move and the home side are back in front at 2-1. That was another special moment as Casillas is beaten again by the chipped effort over him.
    • 41' Pedro goes back to Xavi before Pique feeds Villa. Sergio Ramos is back to make the block on Ramos as we head for the break.
    • 40' Looked like Ramos actually got a touch to Benzema's cross, but Ronaldo probably got the final touch. Anyway, no matter...we are level at 1-1 on the night, and 3-3 on aggregate.
    • 39' Xavi picks up a booking for a late on Coentrao. No complaints there from the Barca skipper.
    • 38' Bezema feeds Ronaldo, but Mascherano is there to make the tackle. Fine play by the former Liverpool man.
    • 37' Iniesta and Khedira tussle in the centre of the park, but Barca get the decision. Coentrao out quickly to make a timely tackle on Villa.
    • 36' Pique joins the party as Barca try to restore their lead, but Pepe makes a wonderful tackle on Iniesta. Had to get that spot on otherwise it would have been a penalty.
    • 35' Messi on the move for Barca! He races through like Usain Bolt, but Casillas stays on his feet long enough to make the block. The little magician's legs were pumping like pistons there. Superb play from him.
    • 34' Mourinho seems to have got his tactics spot on, but Alves shows what he is made of as he races back to make the perfect tackle on Ronaldo. Chance for Barca to break.
    • 33' Ronaldo unhappy that a throw-in goes against him. The Barca fans give him a bit of stick, and on we go. Barca trying to settle into their passing game.
    • 32' The crowd are loving this. And little wonder. Messi tries to play in Xavi, but just overcooks the pass as Casillas races out to collect. Breathtaking play from Messi.
    • 31' Ronaldo drives right at Alves, but the wing back does enough to make the tackle. Alves not been seen much in an attacking sense.
    • 30' Coentrao catches Pedro seconds later, but nothing doing. The referee lacking a bit of consistency after booking Khedira.
    • 29' Iniesta goes in late on Di Maria. A late one on the Real midfielder, but no booking. Should have been a booking.
    • 28' Pique heads out of his box seconds later before Benzema screws shot wide of the target. Breathless stuff as the chances and attacks continue to come.
    • 27' Another sublime move by Real Madrid ends with Valdes nudging Ozil's shot past his left hand post. Real continue to search for a second goal.
    • 26' Pedro almost onto the end of a loose ball, but Casillas was out of his goal like a greyhound to pick up.
    • 25' This match is there to be won, but we are going to have our first booking of the night as Khedira clatters Busquets late.
    • 24' What a stunning shot by Ronaldo! Valdes never knew much about that from outside the box, but he does enough to claw it onto the bar and out. Stunning shot. Deserved a goal.
    • 23' Benzema drags a shot into the sidenetting. This game raging from end to end as Real go again at the hosts.
    • 22' It was Benzema and not Pepe that put the ball into the box for Ronaldo's goal. My apologies for that one. All happened so fast. This is frantic stuff.
    • 21' Super stop by Casillas at the other end to swipe the shot by Pedro over the bar.
    • 20' Claims off offside, but nothing doing. Real almost grabbed a goal seconds earlier when Valdes was rounded, but Khedira and Benzema failed to turn it in.
    • 19' GOAL!! Ronaldo scores for Real!! Barca caught sleeping seconds at the back after Bezema's ball into the box deflected off Alves and into his path. 1-1. Game on again.
    • 18' Villa is offside from what I can pick up. Sergio Ramos is not happy about the delay in coming to that decision as he pushes his Spain team-mate.
    • 17' Mourinho looking a bit deflated about that. His defence got caught too square, but what can you do when Messi is dropping through passes with that pace on them. Barca now lead 3-2 on aggregate.
    • 16' Real had made the brighter start, but Barca have the lead. That is life at this level. Very harsh on Real, but what a move that is. Mouthwatering stuff.
    • 15' GOAL!! Iniesta scores for Barca!! Magnificent pass by Messi to pick out Iniesta and the World Cup winner races through to chip the ball over Casillas. Superb stuff.
    • 14' Villa goes wide to collect before Xavi feeds Pedro. Great tracking back by Ronaldo to deny Alves space. That is already looking like a key dust-up in this encounter.
    • 13' Pedro throws over an excellent cross. Messi went for it, but Casillas does enough to thump the ball out of the area. Better from Barca.
    • 12' Fantastic cross from Ronaldo into the area, but nobody on hand in the Barca box. Real have made the sharper start to this match. They are pressing so high up the pitch.
    • 11' Smart play by Abidal under pressure from Ozil before Valdes does the necessary by clearing from his box. On we go then with Ronaldo on the ball.
    • 10' Real now trying to get their passing game going. Despite the pitch being the size of a polo field, there is very little space for players to move. Both teams working incredibly hard.
    • 9' Busquets presses Benzema hard, and the French striker takes his eye off the ball. Goalkick to Barca, but Valdes is forced to knock the ball out seconds later.
    • 8' Sergio Ramos picks the pocket of Villa. All the players flying into tackles to win possession. Possession is ninth tenths of the law and neither side have gained the upper hand yet.
    • 7' Who says this is a pre-season friendly? Both these sides really going for it. Would be a great way to begin the season with some silverware in the cupboard as Valdes picks up in the Barca goal.
    • 6' The Camp Nou is brimming with boos as Ronaldo picks up, but there are cheers seconds later when the same man wallops over the bar. Well over. What a start to this one.
    • 5' Busquets is clattered by Carvalho. That was late and dirty, but the referee waves play on. Barca on the ball as Busquets is caught offside. Alves complaining about that decision.
    • 4' Villa guilty of a foul on Pepe and Real can launch another attack. All very quick at the moment.
    • 3' Di Maria tries to play in Benzema, but the French striker is just offside. Real Madrid really carrying the game to the home side. Don't see that too ofen at the Camp Nou.
    • 2' What a start! Ronaldo flashes a shot at goal that Valdes beats out before he flicks a volley wide from a corner seconds later. Real on the attack.
    • 1' Barcelona get the match off and running. What an atmosphere. Barcelona start with the same side that won the Champions League final.
    • 21:57 Anyway, back to action. A full house in for this one. Should be cracker...let us settle in for it..
    • 21.55 Big news of the day is that the La Liga strike is set to go ahead on Saturday. Read about it here... Weekend strike still on despite talks
    • 21:50 Real Madrid assistant Aitor Karanka plans on starting the season with a cup win. "We have to try to win from the start of the game. We will bring the title back with us if we play like we did at the Bernabeu. We'll make changes to the team, but we'll decide on them tomorrow. We had planned on Morata training with us after returning from playing with the national team. He has one year's experience with us and knows how we work."
    • 21:45 Barca manager Pep Guardiola feels that his side are better than their fierce rivals - without or without new signing Fabregas. "(Fabregas) has trained well, but has only done one session with the group. He is in the squad and we will see if he can play the whole game ... Alexis (Sanchez) ran like six players in the first leg. We have to move the ball faster than in the first leg. We need to play a great game to win win the cup. I feel that we are still the better team."
