Anyway that is your lot for tonight.

But don't worry you can get your fix of European football tomorrow evening for our live text of AC Milan's visit of Palermo.

We will also be rounding up what has happened over the European weekend as well as previewing an exciting Champions League week ahead.

See you then.

Spanish La Liga

Barcelona's 1-0 defeat at home to Celta Vigo has really put the cat among the pigeons though and you can

read all about it here.

It has been a good night for Real Madrid and Atletico fans, while Sevilla fans could be partying tomorrow. A win at Athletic Bilbao and they are top on their own.

Sevilla top of La Liga? What uis going on?

It seems an earlier suggestion from one of you that Lionel Messi is over rated has sparked a lot of debate.

DrHolmes: 250 goals in league, 3 UCLs, played at a WC final, most goals in a calendar year, 4 Ballon d'ors doesn't mean he's any good.

Jack Philip Green: Those who say that Messi is overrated are clueless, the man is genius. Plays at a pace that only Ronaldo can match.

John Roberts: I'm no Messi fan, but there's too many people, who clearly know very little about football, blasting him after one subpar game.

Earlier in La Liga, Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the 12th successive game to help

Real Madrid beat Granada and move top of La Liga.

Ronaldo put the visitors ahead after only two minutes with a low finish after Karim Benzema's square pass.

The French forward then set up James Rodriguez, who made it 2-0 with a spectacular volley from 12 yards out.

Benzema collected Ronaldo's backheel and shot past goalkeeper Roberto for 3-0 before Rodriguez added a fourth from close range after another Ronaldo pass.

Bayern deepen Dortmund's woes

It seems days ago now but the evening kicked off with another Bundesliga win for unbeaten Bayern.

It was far from easy for the defending champions though as they came from behind to leave last season's runners up Borussia Dortmund with just one point from seven matches.

Marco Reus gave Dortmund the lead at the Allianz Arena but late goals from Robert Lewbadowski and Arjen Robben earned the hosts victory.

Finally time to take a breath and recap what has happened on a manic night of European football. Now where do we start?

Andy Kershaw: Now that is a proper top of a football table!!

You're not wrong Andy. Six teams separated by five points. Stunning.

Mitch Mansfield: That's the first time #Barca have lost two consecutive #LaLiga games since 2009. Could drop to 5th tomorrow.

Good stats Mitch. It is also the first time they have failed to score at home in the league for 57 La Liga matches. 57? That is ridiculous.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Stats
BBC

When it's not your day, it just isn't your day. Barcelona dominated possession and had almost double the amount of shots than Celta Vigo but is the visitors having the party this evening - and what a party it is going to be.

FULL-TIME

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Spanish La Liga

Real Madrid are staying top. At least until Sevilla play tomorrow morning that is. Barcelona created enough chances to win four games but found goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez in unbeatable mood.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Free kick to Celta Viga in their own half. This should be enough to see them through. All credit to the visitors, what a brave display.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Groans from the Nou Camp crowd as Neymar sends a ball into touch. Three minutes of injury time.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Just a minute left of normal time for Barcelona to avoid a second successive La Liga defeat. Can they?

Harry Flashman: Messi overrated nowhere near as good as Maradona people were allowed to kick him and did it in a much more difficult league.

Vinny Dozie: Messi is so overrated. Its total insanity comparing him to @CR7Official_ .CR7 has proven himself in several clubs.

ForzaJules: Messi's played in an era when referees deem most forms of contact illegal, and 2 games are not definitive of one's career.

Still think you are being harsh on Messi myself.......

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

This just isn't going to go in for Barcelona. Luis Suarez's cross is inches away from Neymar's head as the Brazilian ends up in the net without the ball. Two minutes left.

GREAT SAVE!

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Celta goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez is looking unbeatable.

Luis Suarez thinks he has crowned his home debut with a goal but somehow Alvarez gets finger tips to his low strike to send the shot wide. An incredible save.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Nolito

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Brilliant skill from Celta substitute Charles. He takes the ball down with his chest with his back to goal, flicks the ball over a Barca defender before volleying towards goal. Claudi Bravo tips over. Time running out for the hosts.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Close but no cigar. Barca hit the woodwork for the fourth time as Messi's free kick hits the top of the bar and bounces to safety. Ten minutes left.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Another free kick for Barcelona from outside the penalty area. Messi lines it up......

What a miss

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo almost wrap up victory and they should have done. Nolito's volley can only be palmed into the path of striker Charles by goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. But, with an empty net in front of him, the substitute stretches and heads over.

Coffee mad: I have to say #messi has to be one of the most over-rated players, he has played in an era of non contact defending.

Wow, that is a brave shout.....

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi

Maybe it isn't going to be Barcelona's night. Messi lashes the free kick horribly over. You don't expect that from him.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez plays a one-tow with Neymar before going tumbling inside the penalty area under Sergi Gomez's challenge.

The officials gives a free kick just outside the area, although Gomez looks to have won the ball.

Chance though from 18 yards for Barca......

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez! No.

The former Liverpool man is standing six yards out with the goal at his mercy but somehow he heads Pedro's cross straight at goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.

You don't get better chances than that to score on your home debut at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Coming up to the last 20 minutes and Celta Vigo are still holding firm. To be fair, they have looked less troubled this half so far.....

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

Double change for Barcelona as they go four up top.

Pedro joins Suarez, Messi and Neymar in attack as he replaces Rafinha.

Playmaker Xavi is also on, with Sergio Busquets making way.

GREAT SAVE!

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo

He obviously was as he almost levels for Barca.

Messi picks the ball up inside Celta's penalty area, wriggles his way past a couple of defenders, before side footing a shot that is saved by the legs of goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.

You can have all the attacking talent in the world but if you can't defend you are always going to struggle. Barcelona have shown that this evening, but you still have to fancy one of their stars to pull them out of a hole.

You listening Lionel........

Andy: Great interlinkage by the front two for Celta Vigo.

Some Body: Good to see #Barca's defending is just as calamitous as #Liverpool's! Now if only Real could do likewise on Tue..

Now you are dreaming.....

GOAL

Barcelona 0-1 Celta Vigo - Joaquin Larrivey (54 mins)

Celta Vigo
AFP

What a goal. Nolito's sublime back heel puts Joaquin Larrivey in on goal and he makes no mistake with a calm finish into the net. You can hear a pin drop at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi slides Luis Suarez down the right channel but the Uruguayan hesitates and the chance is lost.

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

You get the feeling Celta Vigo are going to have to do a lot of defending this half but can Barca find the breakthrough?

If they don't, with Messi, Suarez and Neymar leading the attack, they can only have themselves to blame.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

With all the talk about Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar's contribution to Barcelona so far this season is in danger of being overlooked.

The Brazilian is top scorer with 11 goals in 11 games but he should be celebrating another.

Jordi Alba's pull back finds Neymar unmarked six yards out but he has his head in his hands as he strikes against the bar. He has to do better.

KICK-OFF

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo start the second half as they look to continue to frustrate their hosts.

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

So what do you reckon then? Lionel Messi breaking the La Liga goal-scoring record with two goals? Luis Suarez to break his Barca duck? Celta Vigo to upset the odds?

Plenty of things to keep an eye out for in the second half. Teams are out again, this could be a blast.

Barcelona 0-0 Celta Vigo

Stats
BBC

Things have been pretty one-sided at the Nou Camp but the most important stat - the goals column - is still level. Barca boss Luis Enrique will be wondering when he changes things against his former club.

Spanish La Liga

La Liga
BBC

As it stands, Barcelona won't return to the top of La Liga with a draw against Celta Vigo after Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Granada earlier today.

Champions Atletico Madrid also kept up the pressure with a 4-2 win over Cordoba, with fourth-placed Sevilla having the chance to return to the top tomorrow.

La Liga is deliciously close.

Dec: I'd have a pure goal-getter in my side. Someone in the Romario/Grant Holt mould.

Brent the Cynic: Marco Van Basten for me. My childhood football hero got 218 in 280 games, not the best strike rate but some pearlers in there.

With Lionel Messi just two goals away from becoming La Liga's all-time top scorer, we are asking what striker from past or present would you want in your side? Let us know via #bbceurofooty.
