120'
It was an incredible game that saw The emblematic number 10 sent off with just a minute to go, five goals in total, and Koeman's Barcelona outclassed by Athletic Bilbao who walk away the deserved winners.

45'
What a strange game of football we are in for tonight! Barcelona scored from their only real chance just for Athletico to equalise a minute later. The Bilbao club have had by far the better night so far, Koeman will need to make changes to change the dynamic of the game.
44'
Athletic keep up the pressure but can only muster another headed miss from a wide cross.
41'
ATHLETIC GOAL! Madness as Athletic score a fantastic goal in response to going behind. De Marcos finshed from inside the area after a nice cross picks him out in space.

28'
Dembele breaks and fires a cross way too far over Griezmann in the middle. The first chance Barca have had in a while didn't come to much...

25'
The cross into the area from the FK is promptly collected by Simon.
24'
Messi steps up to take a FK from a tight angle outside the box.

Barcelona are in trouble if they can't find a way to break through this Athletic side. Athletic are slowly gaining more and more control over the game even if they haven't yet had many dangerous attacks.
14'

10'
