    FT: Sevilla 0-2 Barcelona!! All over in Sevilla and the visitors deserved the win. Dembele scored in a first half which had few chances. Then, the second period was much more open, but Koeman's side looked more dangerous and Messi got on the scoresheet five minutes on time to give Barca a crucial three points. The teams do it again on Wednesday in the cup.

    HT: Sevilla 0-1 Barcelona!! Half-time at the Sanchez-Pizjuan and Barca lead here thanks to a goal from Dembele in the 29th minute. It's been a quiet match with few chances, but Barca have been on top. Sevilla have done little going forward and Messi could have been sent off just before the interval for a second yellow, but the ref just gave the foul. Back soon!

Yellow card

  • 45'
    Escudero sees yellow here for arguing a decision now, Five yellows in what has been a clean game...
  • 44'
    Lopetegui was booked for protesting the decision.
  • 44'
    To be fair to Messi, he was a bit unlucky with his first yellow so things have probably evened themselves out.
  • 43'
    Sevilla surround the referee as Messi fouls Kounde at midfield from behind. He's already been booked and that looked a cynical foul. Sevilla wanted a second yellow and if he hadn't been booked already, he would have seen one here.
