  1. Farewell on a memorable night

    So Moyes has a point in Spain but in no way could his achievement overshadow some special history...

    Lionel Messi

    That was the moment Lionel Messi became La Liga's record goal scorer with 252 goals. He added another to seal a hat-trick on the night and now sits on 253...

    Lionel Messi

    On that note we bid you goodnight.

    Ryan Crombleholme: Solid basis to build on for Moyes. Can assess players further and change around.

    Dean Glass: First clean sheet in 7 months. Happy with our defending but lack of shots on target wasn't good at all. This will take time

  3. Post update

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    A tight affair with limited quality going forward but Moyes will draw positives from the clean sheet and his side's endeavour throughout at a tricky venue.

    The point moves them up a place to 14th with Depor one position further back.

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    A first league clean sheet in seven months for Real Sociedad and David Moyes is unbeaten in Spain.

  6. Post update

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    Just three minutes of injury time to go. A winner looks unlikely, but if anyone has had a football adventure recently it is David Moyes, so who knows.

    The Scot stands alongside his translator and points energetically to players.

    Real Sociedad v Deportivo
  8. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    Real Sociedad have not kept a league clean sheet this season and it is heart in mouth time. Their central defender Gorka Elustondo plays a poor back pass, leaving goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai to tidy up hastily.

    The stopper then has to scurry to flick a corner over waiting heads. Moyes looks like he is getting a draw at best here. At best...

  9. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    The shining light for David Moyes tonight will surely be Carlos Vela. The former Arsenal player is bright and feisty in carving out his own chances.

    He powers around a challenge this time and while wrestling in the area, gets a shot off which goes wide.

    Vela, still only 25, scored 17 goals in all competitions last season.

  11. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    On his 50th appearance for Deportivo, Pablo Insua arrives unmarked to meet a corner kick but makes a hash of his header and the ball drops into the hands of the Real Sociedad's goalkeeper. From inside the six-yard box that was a chance.

    The home side are on top now though, corners aplenty. Will Moyes look to tighten it up?

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    David Moyes

    The odd goal, a set piece or a moment of unforeseeable genius look like the only ways we will see a goal here.

    A point may not be a bad start to Spanish life for David Moyes. He lost captain Xabi Prieto and two of his back four to injury ahead of this match. Plus game two will undoubtedly bring fewer cameral lenses, more time to adapt and a home crowd against lowly Elche.

    Depor have introduced Cezary Wilk for Juan Dominguez in this half but a flurry of offsides ate hampering both teams.

    Danny, Hemel: To compare Lionel Messi's league record to Ronaldo is ridiculous - he was in the league five years before Ronaldo and on average Ronaldo is banging in 35 a season so five times that is 175 - if they started in the league at the same time Ronaldo would be miles ahead - a fact!

    Juventus beat Lazio 3-0 tonight in Serie A to go three points clear over Roma again.

    All three goals came from ex-Manchester United players, with Paul Pogba's brace sandwiching a Carlos Tevez strike.

    Simone Padoin was sent off for the champions.

  21. HALF-TIME

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    How will David Moyes reflect on that first half of football in the Spanish game?

    Positively I would think. His side have twice gone close through Carlos Vela and late in the half, a whipped corner fizzes over the crossbar off the leg of a Deportivo defender.

    The whistle blows... over to you David. Remember, clenched fists, thumbs up and clapped hands will get the message over. Words are overrated.

  22. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    As this half has progressed, Moyes's level of satisfaction will have steadily increased.

    His side have created the better openings and Carlos Vela is at the heart of their latest foray. He curls an effort over the bar from 18 yards.

    His manager has settled again on the touchline. A low profile may be advised after seemingly riling a rival coach to the point where he was dismissed.

  23. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    Carlos Vela looks the most likely to break the deadlock here and he cuts in from the flank to curl an effort and force a smart tipped save.

    Uproar on the Deportivo bench as they claim offside and David Moyes is drawn into it. He flutters his hand, telling a member of Depor's coaching team to calm down. The instruction does the opposite and it seems Moyes is bringing some Scottish fire to proceedings.

    The game has been bland, a touchline riot would liven it up somewhat.

  25. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    Real Sociedad defend a corner well and spring into a counter-attack through Sergio Canales. Carlos Vela is on hand to receive a pass but his touch is heavy. They had a three against one situation to play with there and they made a pig's ear of it.

    There's a term for the coaching manual you can hand to your players out there David... 'pig's ear.'

  28. CLOSE!

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    Forget Lionel Messi's goal scoring record, when a goalkeeper saves a stinging shot with his face, let the praise rain down.

    Real Sociedad have grown into this and Sergio Canales drives through bodies in the area, forcing Agosto Fabricio to improvise.

    The ball finds his nose but he's the brave sort is Fabricio, no messing, up he gets. Good save son.

  31. Moyes, Man Utd and nightmares

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    David Moyes

    David Moyes says the Real Sociedad job "fits my character" and there is no doubt he cut a chipper figure when presented to the press.

    It is his first step in rebuilding what his time at Manchester United washed away, but just how bad was he at Old Trafford?

    • Moyes brought an end to Champions League football at Manchester United for the first time since 1995.
    • He guided United to only their second finish behind Liverpool since 1992, when the Premier League started.
    • The former Everton boss oversaw the worst home record at Old Trafford since 1978.

    But none of that matters now. Moyes is in northern Spain, what could possibly go wrong?

  32. Post update

    Deportivo La Coruna 0-0 Real Sociedad

    The Moyes factor aside, this game actually sees two sides in a fairly glum position going at it.

    Real Sociedad sit 15th and Depor are two positions worse off. The losers here could find themselves in the bottom three by Sunday night.

    Deportivo start the better in front of a home crowd at the Riazor but set-piece deliveries are well defended by the team from San Sebastian.

  33. Text us on 81111

    Dave Rotherham, York: I wish all the best for David Moyes in Spain. He wasn't given enough time at Man Utd to show his capabilities. On the plus side, Man Utd and their fans have been dragged off their high horses into the chop and change philosophy of modern day club management.

  34. Reasons to be optimistic

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    Spanish football writer Andy West believes Moyes has reason to be optimistic in Spain...

    "The good news for Moyes - and surely one of the main reasons he has taken the job - is that his new squad contains plenty of talent, with their current position of 15th with nine points from 11 games an inaccurate reflection of the team's true capabilities.

    "Although the departure of star forward Antoine Griezmann has undeniably left a hole up front, Moyes can still call upon Carlos Vela who, despite struggling with Arsenal as a youngster, has been one of Spanish football's most consistent scorers in recent years.

    "Moyes's new midfield is stacked with potential, including two young players who have long been regarded as potential future Spanish internationals: former Real Madrid man Sergio Canales and youth team product Ruben Pardo."

    You can read more of Andy's views in a feature highlighting challenges Moyes will face.

    Yousuf Ahmed: At United Moyes' lack of football know-how was highlighted but for a mid-table side like Sociedad he will succeed.

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    David Moyes

    In his first games in charge of the three clubs he has managed before tonight, David Moyes has a flawless record.

    The Scot guided Preston to a 2-1 Division Two victory over Luton Town in his first game in 1998, Everton to a win by the same scoreline over Fulham in 2002 and Manchester United to a 4-1 thumping of Swansea last season.

    Can he motivate his new troops in a foreign language? Here you go David: 'Vamos Muchachos' apparently means 'come on lads'.

    Can Moyes succeed in Spain?

    James Hoult: Wasn't given a fair chance at United but did a good job at Everton with a limited budget. Got them fourth once and in most seasons got them in Europa League, also got to an FA Cup final against Chelsea in 2009.

    But he always had teams ahead of his team ie United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, even Portsmouth won the FA Cup in his time at Everton.

    Now if we're honest it's going to be the same in Spain because his team will have to compete with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla, Villarreal etc which just like in his Premier League days won't be easy but even as a Liverpool fan I wish Moyes all the best in Spain.

  40. CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

    Barcelona 5-1 Sevilla

    Lionel Messi

    Telmo Zara hit his 251 goals in 15 years at Athletic Bilbao between 1940 and 1955. He notched 20 in 20 caps for Spain and died of a heart attack at the age of 85 in 2006.

    Records are there to be broken but this one will now take some passing.

  41. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 5-1 Sevilla

    Sevilla's brief parity early in the second-half through Jordi Alba's own goal was a golden opportunity for Unai Emery's side.

    They have still not had a shot of their own at goal and that was a gift-wrapped chance for them to dig in.

    They did the opposite, Lionel Messi punished them and as Neymar fires a volley down the throat of Beto, it could get worse.

  42. GOAL

    Barcelona 5-1 Sevilla - Lionel Messi (Hat-trick)

    We could write a live text just about this guy. He deserves to win Strictly Come Dancing, Master Chef and University Challenge for this display.

    Lionel Messi dances through challenges and runs from the right touchline to a central position, plays a wall pass with Neymar and drives home from 18 yards.

    Clinical. A full 253 La Liga goals not out.

    Lionel Messi celebrates
  43. Rising house prices Messi business

    Barcelona v Sevilla (19:00 GMT)

    So Lionel Messi has hit 252 league goals in, wait for it, 250 starts for Barcelona.

    All right, the pedants among you may point to 38 substitute appearances, but I think it is safe to say that is not too bad.

    Now then Arsenal fans, even at London prices, surely buying the wee man's family a flat to seal his signing at the age of 15 would have been a good bit of business?

    A flat in London

    Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes reluctance to throw a flat into the offer was a deal breaker when the Gunners tried bringing Messi to the club along with Cesc Fabregas.

    "It was not completely down to a flat in the end. It was down to the fact that Messi was comfortable at Barcelona," Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said on Friday.

    But Arsene, if you had tempted him with a balcony and stretched to heated wooden flooring, just think of the possibilities.

  44. An impressive CV

    Barcelona 4-1 Sevilla

    This isn't Messi's first record...

    Barcelona's top goalscorer: 367

    Most goals in a season: 68

    Most Ballon d'Ors: 4

    Most European Cup top scorer awards: 4 (with Gerd Muller)

    Most La Liga hat-tricks in a season: 8

    Most goals in Club World Cup: 4 (held jointly with Denilson)

    Most goals in a calendar year: 91

    Most goals in a La Liga season: 50

    Most consecutive La Liga matches scored in: 21

    Most goals in a single European Cup game: 5

    Most goals in El Clasico: 21

  45. GOAL

    Barcelona 4-1 Sevilla - Lionel Messi

    And there it is. The La Liga record all on his own. His first goal showed his quality, the second was all about hunger.

    Lionel Messi picks the ball up just inside the Sevilla half and with a three against two situation in Barca's favour, the alarm bells are ringing.

    The Argentine drives at the defence and feeds Neymar who passes across goal... Luis Suarez will turn it in but Messi wants this, he finds a yard, slides and nudges the ball home. A unique goalscorer with desire aplenty.

    No player has ever scored as many La Liga goals.

    Lionel Messi is held aloft by his Barcelona team-mates
  46. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 3-1 Sevilla

    Barcelona, their own goal aside, have shown glimpses tonight of the side which won so many plaudits under Pep Guardiola.

    It is far from vintage, but snippets of that free-flowing attacking zest are evident.

    Luis Suarez receives a ball from Jordi Alba 35 yards out and as the left back gallops for a return pass, Suarez's flick is exquisite. It finds its target and Alba volleys wide from 12 yards. Slick, clever, dangerous. Suarez deserves a goal.

  49. GOAL

    Barcelona 3-1 Sevilla - Ivan Rakitic

    Ivan Rakitic puts his head in his hands as he powers a header home against his old club. No celebration here.

    The Croatia midfielder profits from unselfish Luis Suarez running and connects with a perfectly floated delivery to nod in.

    Beto in the Sevilla goal gets a hand to it but this one is way over the line. Points sealed?

    Ivan Rakitic scores for Barcelona
  50. Back at home but never at home

    Barcelona 2-1 Sevilla

    Gerard Deulofeu

    Gerard Deulofeu, 20, is still a Barcelona player but has just two appearances for his parent club. His latest loan move to Sevilla follows a season at Everton.

    And perhaps Luis Enrique's decision to farm the youngster out is to stop the kind of decision making we have just seen. Deulofeu has a chance to cross with Carlos Bacca in space in the areabut elects to cut-back onto his left foot. A waste.

  51. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 2-1 Sevilla

    A double round of applause at the Nou Camp as Denis Suarez - a former Barcelona player - leaves the field for Sevilla and coming on is a name many of you may recognise... Gerard Deulofeu.

    Sevilla will kick themselves for their charity in gifting Barcelona the lead and the experience shown by their hosts offers complete contrast.

    Barcelona follow up their strike with a period of solid play, neat possession in and around the 18-yard-box and a shot from range by Ivan Rakitic.

    They are taking the sting out of this one whilst looking threatening.

    Your side equalise in the Nou Camp, so surely you use your head for five minutes, take the sting out of it?

    A foul just inside the Sevilla half allows Xavi to whip in a delivery and at sixes and sevens, Sevilla's defence is breached.

    It's Neymar, it's a glancing header and it's his 11th league goal of the season.

    Time to go again Sevilla...

  56. GOAL

    Barcelona 1-1 Sevilla - Jordi Alba own goal

    Sevilla players celebrate

    The locals are still gorging on chorizo in the snack bars... this one was one-way traffic before the break so what is the need to rush back?

    Think again.

    Vitolo gets down the Barca left with some trickery and his cross is met at the near post by Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba. It bobbles over the line through a mixture of knee, shin and other generally ugly parts of the body which often lead to not so nice things happening in the six yard box.

  57. Meanwhile... in Italy

    Italian Serie A

    Roma celebrate

    Elsewhere tonight, Roma are temporarily level at the top of Italy's Serie A after a 2-1 win away at Atalanta, while their city neighbours Lazio are currently goalless against Juventus - who will move a point clear if the score stays as is.

    Extraordinary. Freakish. How would you sum up what Messi has achieved by the age of 27?

    Barcelona 1-0 Sevilla

    Barcelona may only be two places above their visitors but the gulf here has been vast.

    Luis Enrique's side have monopolised possession and Sevilla are yet to register a shot on goal.

    The intricacies are meaningless however as Lionel Messi is the story. He now shares La Liga's all-time scoring record - though that may change in the second half.

  62. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 1-0 Sevilla

    A dominant Barca display has yielded few chances, but two arrive at one as the first-half draws to a close.

    Jordi Alba - who has ran Sevilla hard down the Barca left - gets in behind and his shot beats the keeper but finds a sliding defender on the goal-line.

    From the corner, do Barca put it in the mixer? Never. They work an opening for Neymar who has a golden chance from 12 yards saved by Beto's legs.

    Big chance, Sevilla like a boxer on the ropes.

    Barcelona 1-0 Sevilla

    Moments after Coke is booked for his brutality on Neymar, Lionel Messi is chopped down having clearly got the the ball quicker than Sevilla's Daniel Carrico - no foul. Then Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic - playing against his old club - is wrestled down and when nothing is given, the locals make their feelings known.

    Barca players surround the referee. You get the feeling Sevilla will need to be industrial if they are to keep tabs on their hosts tonight.

  64. YELLOW CARD

    Barcelona 1-0 Sevilla

    Sevilla defender Coke puts in what we will call a 'robust' challenge on Neymar. It involves shirt pulling and a bit of a boot from behind. No prisoners then.

    Bad news for Coke though, out comes the yellow card and he now misses his side's next match against Granada.

    If there is ever a way to equal the La Liga scoring record this is it.

    The stage set, free-kick, 18 yards and central, Lionel Messi steps up left footed and whips the ball into the top corner. You could put three goalkeepers in there and it would still go in. Beto is helpless, Messi's name reverberates around the Nou Camp.

    He has 251 La Liga goals.

  71. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 0-0 Sevilla

    It would appear Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is going to hug, cuddle, wrestle and do whatever he needs to in order to stop Lionel Messi tonight. He almost hitches a ride on Messi's back in attempting to stop the Argentine.

    Jordi Alba again gets in behind the visiting defence down Barca's left side but his delivery evades the onrushing masses and though it is one way traffic, it remains level.

  72. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 0-0 Sevilla

    Would you want your side going to Barcelona after an international break? The home crowd whoop and roar as a neat exchange releases Jordi Alba, his cut-back finds Luis Suarez who feeds Neymar instantly but the shot is blocked.

    That was football at speed and Barca have the look of a side itching for a game.

    Luis Suarez has had some early touches, much to the joy of home supporters who roar when the Uruguayan puts the ball under his spell.

  77. No win memory for Emery

    Barcelona v Sevilla (19:00 GMT)

    Barcelona are one of only two teams (with Recreativo) that Unai Emery has faced as a La Liga manager and never beaten. He has four draws to his name, but not a single win over the Catalans.

  78. Sevilla's good start

  79. KICK-OFF

    Barcelona 0-0 Sevilla

    And here we go, Barcelona get the ball rolling at the Nou Camp, Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar leading the line. Looks like a 0-0 draw then.

    Sevilla do not like this ground. They have not left with three points for 12 years.

  80. Simeone's boys second

    Atletico Madrid 3-1 Malaga

    Atletico Madrid celebrate

    Atletico Madrid are an incessant force. Champions last year, some experts believed the power would return to Spain's traditional big two this season.

    But victory over Malaga - with goals from Diego Godin, Tiago and Antoine Griezmann - puts them second, four points behind Real Madrid.

  81. FULL-TIME

    Eibar 0-4 Real Madrid

    All over at Ipurua Municipal Stadium at Real Madrid complete a 4-0 win. Cristiano Ronaldo proves he can ever score scuffed efforts as his first is struck into the ground, bouncing high into the net.

    If he was that good he would catch it clean.

    He fired a penalty in late on to seal another win for Carlo Ancelotti's side who now have 101 league goals in 2014 - the most in Europe.

  83. Following in the footsteps of...

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    John Toshack and Chris Coleman

    In taking charge of Real Sociedad after they parted with Jagoba Arrasate, David Moyes becomes the fourth British man to take the helm at the Basque club.

    He follows Harry Lowe (1930-35), John Toshack - who had three spells in charge - and Chris Coleman who lasted just under six months in 2007.

    Only Toshack landed silverware, winning the Copa del Rey in 1987.

  84. Get on with it Lionel...

    Barcelona v Sevilla (19:00 GMT)

    Lionel Messi will be once again under the spotlight when Barcelona entertain Sevilla.

    The 27-year-old has unthinkably not scored in three league games and needs just two more goals to beat Telmo Zarra's all-time league record of 251.

    Stuck on 250 goals since 18 October. He can't be that good...

    Mundo Deportivo with Lionel Messi on page

    Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo is expecting big things, leading with the hash tag 'always messi' today.

  85. Ronaldo rolls over Eibar

    Eibar v Real Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Barcelona will remain second at best if they beat Sevilla as rivals Real Madrid have made routine work of their trip to Eibar.

    Some fella called Cristiano Ronaldo has scored two - he sounds decent - while goals from Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez see Los Blancos 4-0 up with around five minutes remaining.

    Ronaldo now has 20 goals in 11 league games and Madrid will hold a four-point lead at the top over Atletico - winners earlier - with Barca one point further back.

  86. LINE-UPS

    Barcelona v Sevilla (19:00 GMT)

    Barcelona: Bravo, Dani Alves, Pique, Mathieu, Alba, Xavi, Busquets, Rakitic, Suarez, Messi, Neymar.

  87. Time to kick on

    Barcelona v Sevilla (19:00 GMT)

    Barcelona need a victory tonight to ignite their form ahead of a tricky run of games.

    Luis Garcia's side lost two matches on the spin before winning last time out against Almeria and now sit second, trailing Real Madrid by two points.

    After tonight's visit of fifth-placed Sevilla, they face a tricky trip to Valencia and then a local derby with Espanyol.

  88. A new and better stage

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    Moyes believes his new home gives him the chance to manage in the "best league in the world".

    "La Liga has the finest players and great coaches and I want to test myself against the best," the 51-year-old told reporters in his first news conference.

    Real Sociedad away at Deportivo may not throw up Brazil '70 levels of football, but we will have every blow from Sevilla v Barcelona here for you before Moyes' debut - that one could be sparkly.

  89. From East Dunbartonshire to northern Spain

    Deportivo La Coruna v Real Sociedad (21:00 GMT)

    What is that saying? You can't keep a good man down?

    David Moyes

    Just seven months after being sacked at Manchester United, David Moyes rolls up 700 miles south at Real Sociedad.

    How will he handle his first game in charge? That awkward managerial smile as the cameras swamp the dugout will undoubtedly be called for come 21:00 GMT tonight.
