Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

La Liga table.
BBC

Barcelona fail to win for the first time in La Liga this season, allowing champions Real Madrid to close the gap to five points.

We are back on Sunday for more European action, this time in Serie A as Inter take on AC in the Milan derby.

Yummm.

Until then.

FULL-TIME

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

And that Lionel Messi set-piece is the last kick of the game.

A thrilling match comes to an end.

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Lionel Messi smacks a drive at 100mph, past the wall, but thankfully for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, it is straight into his grasp.

Phew.

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Here comes Lionel Messi...

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Lionel Messi hit the post with a free-kick earlier in the match, where will this one go?

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Time is up...

...but Barcelona have a late free-kick.

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Two minutes of added time played, but Antoine Griezmann brings down Lionel Messi bang on the edge of the box.

HUGE opportunity for the winner.

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

THREE minutes of injury time to play.

Is there a hero in this match?

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Sublime from Luis Suarez, dancing around Stefan Savic.

Can the Barcelona goalscorer grab the winner?

No, his shot from the edge of the box is high and into the stand behind Jan Oblak.

Suarez needed to work the goalkeeper there.

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Well, they fluffed this right up.

Andre Gomes, who has not had the best of games, finds space in the box and decides to cross it instead of shooting.

The attempt at finding Luis Suarez is horrible, a dribbly, dibbly, dobbly pass which the Uruguayan cannot get to and the chance is lost.

SUBSTITUTION

Oh, by the way, ex-Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres came on for Gabi after the goal.

GOAL - Atletico Madrid 1-1 Barcelona

Luis Suarez

Barcelona level late on.

What a cross by Sergi Roberto to the back post.

Luis Suarez ghosts in between Atletico full-back Juanfran and centre-back Stefan Savic to powerfully head in the equaliser.

Jan Oblak got a hand to it, but could not keep it out.

Suarez goes running towards the home fans and cups his hand to his ear in celebration.

Naughty.

GREAT SAVE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Everton to Liverpool.

Gerard Deulofeu cuts the ball back into the box for Luis Suarez, who miscontrols it.

But the Uruguayan stretches out a foot to prod a shot at goal, which Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has to react sharply to keep out.

SUBSTITUTION

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Last Barcelona change.

Ivan Rakitic makes way for Barcelona summer signing Paulinho.

Can he salvage a draw? 11 minutes left.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti looking to take matters into his own hands, but his low shot is easy for Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Silly boy.

Barcelona sub Sergi Roberto scoops a cross which sails over the box and towards the other end of the pitch.

Instead of clearing it to safety, Atletico full-back Juanfran elects to shepherd the ball out of play and catches Jordi Alba in the face with a forearm.

Free-kick to Barcelona, but the hosts clear.

SUBSTITUTION

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

It's Partey time.

Off comes Atletico Madrid midfielder Yannick Carrasco and he is replaced by the energetic Thomas Partey.

Andre Gomes with a strike from long-range, over the crossbar.

Dreadful.

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

He is human!

Lionel Messi has missed as many as he scored for Argentina in midweek.

The ball falls nicely for the Barcelona front man inside the area, but curls his shot wide of goal.

Haha! Stephen has got back to us. See 20:46 entry.

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Not happening for Lionel Messi today.

Sergio Busquets fizzes a pass into the feet of Luis Suarez, who controls it instantly.

The former Liverpool man holds it up before playing it in to Messi down the left edge of the box, but the Argentine's drive forces Jan Oblak into a comfortable save.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Atletico boss Diego Simeone is frantically barking out instructions to his players.

His team have not beaten Barcelona in their last 14 La Liga matches.

25 minutes remaining to end that run.

PENALTY APPEAL

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Luis Suarez's first-time pass into the box comes off the arm of Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic.

The Uruguayan is screaming for a penalty.

Referee says no.

I'm not sure.

Lusie Seth: How on earth is Andre Gomes starting ahead of Paulinho? He's been a non existing figure.

Not seen any evidence to disagree with this.

Changes for Barcelona.

Andres Iniesta and Nelson Semedo are being hooked.

On come Sergi Roberto and former Everton man Gerard Deulofeu.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Lionel Messi is over the free-kick. The Argentine is faced by a 12-man wall, consisting of players from both teams.

Messi curls the ball over and towards the top corner, but the ball cannons off the outside of the post.

Close.

Oh Gabi.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder is walking on thinnest of thin ice. He trips Lionel Messi 25 yards out.

Still no second yellow issued...

GREAT SAVE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

It is quite pedestrian from Barcelona, Atletico Madrid look comfortable but the visitors then suddenly come to life.

Luis Suarez shows pace to drift past a home defender and rockets a shot towards goal, which Jan Oblak has to push away.

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Antoine Griezmann evades Barca full-back Nelson Semedo at the back post and thumps a drive just wide of Marc-Andre ter Stegen's goal.

That was travelling.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Atletico are giving Barcelona the runaround in the second half.

Yannick Carrasco slips the ball past Gerard Pique - who is sent tumbling to the deck - but then Juanfran's low cross is blocked by Samuel Umtiti.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

No holds barred stuff from Gabi.

The Atletico Madrid skipper is already on a yellow card and goes charging in on Sergio Busquets from behind with a sliding tackle.

He catches the Barcelona midfielder in front of the referee's eyes, but the man in yellow allows play to continue.

Why did he not issue a second yellow and red card???

CLOSE!

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

Atletico come flying out of the traps in the second half.

They earn a corner which is cleverly worked as Yannick Carrasco plays it short to Koke, who gives it back, but Carrasco's curled shot from the angle is straight at Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

KICK-OFF

Off we go again.

YELLOW CARD

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

The Spanish referee reaches for his pocket and books Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic AFTER the half-time whistle.

Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz had allowed play to go on earlier, as the Croatian midfielder chopped down Antoine Griezmann in the centre circle.

Advantage played, before coming back to the infringement. Well done ref.

HALF-TIME

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

And the referee blows for half time in an absorbing first half.

Saul Niguez's superb strike the difference.

Atletico Madrid 1-0 Barcelona

The Atletico Madrid fans held their breath for a moment as Lionel Messi skipped past two home defenders and made his way to the edge of the area, before the Argentine's run was halted by Diego Godin.

Had he poked that through, he was in on goal and we would be celebrating another Messi special.
