Thanks and goodnight

So a frustrating night for PSG and one of huge mixed emotions for Barcelona.

The Spanish side have managed to win and lose simultaneously. 

There's more to come in this soap opera.

I'll see thee.

FULL-TIME

PSG 0-0 Toulouse

After six minutes of injury time, it ends goalless in Paris.

A frustrating night for PSG. They remain three points behind Ligue 1 leaders Monaco. 

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Those two goals means Lionel Messi has now scored 34 goals in 34 games. You wouldn't have known it from his face when that winning penalty went in. It was an expression more of anger than joy, one that questioned 'how did we get into this?' as opposed to 'I'm glad we got out of it'.

Ligue 1 update

PSG 0-0 Toulouse

Meanwhile, in Paris, it remains 0-0 between PSG and Toulouse. A frustrating night for Unai Emery's title-chasing side. They have five minutes to claim all three points.

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Barcelona's win moves them up to second in La Liga, one point behind Real Madrid, who have two games in hand.

That won't be the focus in the days after this game, though. Luis Enrique is going to be asked a lot of uncomfortable questions shortly.

FULL-TIME

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

There are cheers at the final whistle, but they are either of relief or very, very hollow. Barca have won the game, but this will only prompt more questions.

Luis Enrique's side may have had 75% of possession but they struggled to hurt Leganes, who had enough chances to win the game themselves.

The cracks are covered with tissue paper.

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Into the dying seconds. Neymar is fouled. That looks to have ended any remaining hope Leganes had of a late reprieve.

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Ooooohhh! So close to an equaliser. The Leganes corner is cleared but picked up by El Zhar who unleashes a fierce shot from distance that flashes just past the post. Only a yard in it. Barca breathe again.

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

But wait, Leganes have a corner...

Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Poor Leganes. They were so close to a monumental result. They deserved their point. They have had it snatched away.

Five minutes have been added. 

GOAL - Barcelona 2-1 Leganes

Lionel Messi

Out. Of. Jail. He has played on the biggest of stages and scored goal after goal, but Messi takes this huge moment in his stride, firing a perfect penalty into the corner of the net. No stopping that. Barcelona are still in this title race. Just.

PENALTY

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Barcelona have an escape route! Neymar cuts in from the left and is sent to ground by a lunging tackle from Mantovani. It is cruel on Leganes, but it is a pen.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Blatant time wasting by Siovas, who has a bit of cramp and takes an age to limp off to be replaced by Pablo Insua. It earns him plenty of whistles and a yellow card.

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Big save from Herrerin! Messi floats a pin-point pass over the top for Neymar, who has the ball taken right off his toe by the away keeper. Herrerin takes a knock for his trouble and eats into time to receive some treatment, much to the home fans' annoyance.

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Six minutes left for Leganes to survive and seal a famous result.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Three changes for Barca. In the space of a minute, on come Andreas Iniesta, Denis Suarez and Jordi Alba. Rafinha, Andre Gomes and Digne depart. Can the old guard rescue them?

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Oooh, this could be controversial. Montovani, who has already seen yellow cynically blocks Messi on the break. It is a yellow-card offence but the referee keeps his cards in his pocket. 

As you'd expect, Luis Enrique is not a happy man.

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Leganes don't just want a point, they want all three! They come forward through Machis down the left but he is muscled off the ball and Barca clear.

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Messi takes again but misses the target, floating his effort over the bar. Poor.

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Foul. Free-kick on the edge of the box for Barca. Big moment coming up...

Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Andreas Iniesta is stripping off. Barca need every bit of talent at their disposal to try and get out of jail here. You thought the PSG result was bad. This would be worse.

GOAL - Barcelona 1-1 Leganes

Unai Lopez

Oh my word! What a story we potentially have now! Leganes, tiny, little Leganes are level at the Nou Camp against the mighty Barcelona. There is a hint of fortune about it as the ref ignores what looks like a foul on Sergi Roberto in the right-back position by Machis before the ball is then worked to sub Unai Lopez, whose strike from the edge of the box beats Ter Stegen.

You can't say Leganes don't deserve this.

Ligue 1 update

PSG 0-0 Toulouse

The game is back under way in Paris and PSG have gone very close. Edinson Cavani has hit the post. It remains 0-0, though.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Off the line! Rafinha gets past a couple of men in the Leganes box before producing a shot that deflects towards the goal and past the keeper before being hacked cleared by Diego Rico into Herrerin's hands.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Once again, Guerrero is clear of the Barca defence. He eyes a shooting opportunity but is denied it by the attention of Jeremy Mathieu. Was that a nudge? The ref says no.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

A smart turn from Luis Suarez leaves his marker standing still and beaten, but out comes Iago Herrerin to beat the Barca forward to the ball.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Erik Moran departs and on comes Unai Lopez. It is an attacking move. Leganes coach Asier Garitano knows his team can get something out of this. Barca are vulnerable.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

If an end result comes the build-up can be considered patient, but when the final ball is as woeful as Barca are producing it looks unnecessarily laboured. They take an age to work the ball to the right of the box before Rakitic side-foots a low cross straight to the Leganes keeper.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Herrerin's turn to save. Neymar is found in the box by Messi and he tries to sneak a low shot inside the away keeper's near post but out comes a leg to block and avert the danger.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Ivan Rakitic turns on the edge of the box but slices his shot horribly wide of goal.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

If Leganes had a goalscorer they could be three, maybe four-one ahead. I kid you not.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Ter Stegen again to the rescue! He is Barcelona's star player so far. He produces another key save to deny Guerrero, who breaks the offside trap to go clear but fails to find the net with his angled drive. How often can the home side play with fire and not get burned?

Wayne Hollis: Saw Barca play Bilbao 2 wks ago. Defence poor then. Too much faffing about between GK & centre backs. PSG win was no surprise 

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Iniesta must be a tempting option for Luis Enrique now to add some calm authority to the home side. I'm sure he would have preferred to have put this game firmly to bed without him but needs must.

Tom Rainsford: Barcelona not finishing chances. Feels flat around the Nou Camp, would not be surprised if Leganes grab one

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

The passes are ambitious but too often going astray for Barca. Lionel Messi is gliding over the turf but failing to beat men with the usual ease. This is a dysfunctional Barcelona.

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

Leganes really fancy this. They win another corner, which Guerrero fails to flick on at the near post before a Barca defender blocks a follow-up shot and clears.

Ligue 1 update

PSG 0-0 Toulouse

It is half-time in Paris, where PSG are being frustrated by Toulouse. 

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

The first yellow of the evening goes to Luis Suarez for a high foot in on Gabriel.

KICK-OFF

Barcelona 1-0 Leganes

We are back under way. I can't believe I'm typing this, but it is a really big half of football for Barca. Against Leganes.
