FULL-TIME

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

It's all over. Barcelona are five points clear at the top and remain unbeaten. Celta Vigo deserved their draw.

Thanks for joining us this afternoon, I'll see you later for Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid (19:45 GMT KO).

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi's free-kick hits the wall and goes out for a corner. But there isn't time left for it.

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi has the ball on the edge of the box. Six Celta players surround him and he's eventually fouled. Free-kick to Barca. Seconds left.

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

It's still end to end. Sergio Busquets' attempted pass over the top to Jordi Alba is cut out. Can someone find a winner?

Paco Alcacer almost does as he heads over Sergi Roberto's cross from 10 yards out.

INJURY TIME

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo are still pushing for a winner, fair play - they have been so positive. They deserve this point.

FIVE minutes added on.

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo have a chance to win it now, but Pione Sisto's shot - from Iago Aspas' through-ball - is saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Barcelona come forward again - this is a magic game - and Denis Suarez is fouled.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi. Four yards out. WIDE.

Luis Suarez finds Denis Suarez, whose shot is deflected. It loops up in the air to Messi, from close range, and he heads wide. He might have been offside anyway.

Celta keeper Ruben Blanco booked for timewasting now.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Celta make the final change of the game. Pablo Hernandez replaces Jozabed in midfield.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Barca sub Thomas Vermaelen is booked. Poor play as he lets the ball bounce then pulls down Maxi Gomez to deny an attack.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

End to end. Iago Aspas is so lively, but this time Gerard Pique gets the better of him. Barca counter, and Jozabed fouls Denis Suarez to pick up a booking.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Barcelona bring on an extra striker - Paco Alcacer - for midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Gerard Pique, who often forgets he's a centre-back, clips the ball into the box and Paulinho, Celta keeper Ruben Blanco and defender Gustavo Cabral all collide. Cabral appears to be injured.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Everyone in the Nou Camp thinks Barcelona are ahead again but Gerard Pique puts it wide. Barca take a quick free-kick which catches everyone by surprise, Lionel Messi plays the ball through to Pique, who goes round the keeper but hits the outside of the post.

YELLOW CARD

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Facundo Roncaglia clothes-lines Luis Suarez. Yellow card.

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

If only all games could be like this, Paulinho is the next player to have a shot but he hooks an effort over from 10 yards out.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Samuel Umtiti couldn't play on after hurting what appeared to be his hamstring in the build-up to that goal. Thomas Vermaelen replaces him.

GOAL - Barcelona 2-2 Celta Vigo

Maxi Gomez

We're level again. Wonderful play by Iago Aspas, who speeds down the right wing, cuts inside and pulls the ball back to Maxi Gomez to score from eight yards out.

Barca defender Samuel Umtiti pulled up with an injury as Aspas flew away from him.

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez has scored 127 goals for Barcelona and is now in their all-time top 10 goalscorers.

Iago Aspas shoots from 25 yards but it's straight at Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Celta made a change after that goal as defender Facundo Roncaglia replaced Brais Mendez. They were planning to bring him on before the goal anyway.

Barca are turning on the class now and Lionel Messi has a shot blocked.

GREAT SAVE!

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

What a fantastic save from Ruben Blanco to keep his side in the game. Lionel Messi heads towards goal and it looks for all the world like it's going to be 3-1. But somehow the Celta keeper sticks an arm out and keeps the ball out.

GOAL - Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez

Just like that, Barcelona turn the style on and they lead. Excellent team goal. Jordi Alba finds Lionel Messi and then he's on the run behind the back. Messi picks out the full-back, who can cross to Luis Suarez to slam home from close range.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo are looking fairly comfortable at the moment. I look at Barca's bench to see who they could bring on to change things, Paco Alcacer maybe.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

A decent spell of possession from Celta Vigo. But then they lose the ball and Barca swarm. Lionel Messi tries to get some space just on the outskirts of the box but Celta's defence do well to take the ball from him.

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Andres Iniesta doesn't last 90 minutes anymore, but this is a really early withdrawal. He was playing well. Denis Suarez replaces him.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Andres Iniesta goes on a Ricky Villa-style tight-control dribble but Jordi Alba is offside when the captain eventually releases the ball.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Barca are almost ahead, Lionel Messi passes to Paulinho, who steps around Ruben Blanco. The keeper forces him wide enough that his shot is from a wide angle and is into the side-netting.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Oh Iago Aspas, you complete dope. He has the ball down the left - there are two men in the centre completely free but he doesn't look up. When he eventually does there aren't as many gaps, and his pass goes out of play.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

The second half is under way.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

We probably shouldn't be too surprised at the goalscorers.

Lionel Messi has scored four goals and assisted four in his last three games against Celta at the Nou Camp.

And Iago Aspas has scored four goals in his last four league appearances against Barca - three at home and then today's away goal.

HALF-TIME

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

This has been a great lunchtime treat so far. We're level at the break.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

A chance for Celta right at the end of the half. Pione Sisto crosses, it goes past Maxi Gomez and Daniel Wass lashes wide at the back post. Had he picked out Gomez, it would have been a better opportunity.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Pione Sisto shoots and effort well wide for Celta. But seconds later the Denmark winger does a good defensive job to take the ball off Lionel Messi break up a Barca attack.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Maxi Gomez is flagged offside as he's played in. Barca's offside trap actually working there.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Barcelona almost ahead as Ivan Rakitic's cross finds Paulinho, but his header is beaten away by Ruben Blanco.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi is in exquisite form so far. Some magic footwork in the box, before he passes to Jordi Alba, who can't do anything with the ball. Back to Messi. More wizardry, but Celta get it away,

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi plays a fine pass to Sergi Roberto down the right but his cross is to nobody.

Now the ball breaks to Messi, who wriggles like a worm on the edge of the box to lose his marker but his shot is blocked.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Barcelona are almost ahead as Lionel Messi hits the post. Luis Suarez has a shot blocked, the rebound comes to Messi, whose header hits a Celta player - the ball comes back to Messi, whose shot from a very tight angle goes wide off the post.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Defences are not on top here. Which is great for a neutral. Ivan Rakitic is in behind but his cross is past everyone in the centre.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi plays a wonderful through-ball to Luis Suarez, who slams home. The flag went up straight away but it was pretty borderline. Not sure he was offside. What a game this is becoming.
