    French Ligue 1

    What does that do for the Ligue 1 title race?

    Well with seven games to go, champions Paris St-Germain are top on 62 points. Lyon are one point behind but Marseille are back on 57. Monaco - who have a game in hand - are on 54. They'll need a lot to go their way to have a chance. And you feel Marseille are almost out of it too now.

  20. RED CARD

    Celta Vigo 0-1 Barcelona

    Celta Vigo are down to 10 as Fabian Orellana is sent off. Oh this is incredible. It wasn't obvious what it was for at the time. The Celta player picked up a chunk of grass as threw it at Sergio Busquets as Barca were getting ready to take a free-kick.


    Celta Vigo 0-1 Barcelona

    The final change of the game - Luis Suarez off and midfielder Ivan Rakitic on. Pedro might go further forward now.


    Celta Vigo 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona celebrate

    Celta Vigo make another change in attacking midfield, Pablo Hernandez is off and Santi Mina comes into the fray. Seven minutes left - Celta haven't looked the same since the goal.

    The second thing Charles down is take a cross down well in the box and look like he's about to pull the trigger when Gerard Pique pulls off a goalsaving sliding tackle to deny the substitute.

    The first thing Brazilian striker Charles does is to lay the ball off for Hugo Mallo, but the full-back curls his shot from outside the box wide.

    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Dani Alves almost defined the modern attacking full-back role but he's not the best finisher in the world. If he was Barcelona would be ahead. The ball breaks to the Brazilian - who could well leave the club this summer - but he totally snatches at it 18 yards out, absolutely panics, and he drags it wide.

  38. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Luis Suarez, right at the end of the first half, was the first Barcelona player to be booked for diving since January 2012 (Andres Iniesta against Real Betis). A bit surprising.

    Especially seeing as it didn't look like a dive.

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Topsy-turvy stuff in France, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic involved again as PSG go ahead. He puts Jeremy Morel under pressure as a cross comes in from the left, and the hapless Marseille defender guides the ball into his own net.


    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona boss Luis Enrique obviously not too happy with what he's seen. Legend midfielder Xavi comes on for Rafinha.

  42. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    It's end to end now, Celta Vigo forward Nolito is under pressure from a couple of Barcelona defenders and fires into the side-netting from close range.

    If it ends this way, Barcelona will only be two points above Real Madrid.

  43. GOAL

    Marseille 2-2 Paris St-Germain - Marquinhos (49 mins)


    You can't keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of the game for too long, and after a quiet first half he's involved as PSG level it up.

    The enigmatic Swede slips over as he takes a free-kick, but his effort rebounds kindly for Marquinhos, who makes no mistake from close range. 'Le Classique' is living up to its billing.

  44. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona


    Nolito is the latest Celta Vigo player to have a chance but his shot from 16 yards is deflected, it goes up in the air - where's it going to land? Out of harm's way.

    Barcelona break and Luis Suarez finds Lionel Messi, who fires wide with a first-time shot from eight yards out.

    Tom McLarty: Pub in central London rocking to chants from both fans. Here's hoping for a better second half for PSG!


    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona


    Neymar has a goal disallowed, wrongly, for offside. The Barcelona striker is slipped in 30 yards from goal, takes it on and fires past Sergio Alvarez. Absolutely the wrong decision.

    His arm was beyond the Celta defence, but it has to be a part of your body you can play the ball with.

    "For the purposes of this decision, the arms are not considered to be part of the body," say Fifa.

    Andre-Pierre Gignac

    When is Andre-Pierre Gignac going to get himself over the Channel to the Premier League? If ever a striker has been made for the English top flight, it's this lad. A proper number nine.


    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Match stats

    It's been a closer first half than one may have thought.


    Marseille 2-1 Paris St-Germain

    What a difference a few minutes make - chances were thin on the ground for the first half-hour, but the last third of the half was a totally different story.

    Andre-Pierre Gignac has grabbed two for the hosts either side of Blaise Matuidi's sublime curled effort from outside the box, and as it stands Marseille are going above PSG into second in Ligue 1. But, something tells me that there will be more twists and turns in the second half.


    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    A bizarre end to the first half at Celta Vigo as Luis Suarez gets away from Jonny with a little bit of skill, flicking the ball on the outside of his boot. The Celta defender then appears to bring down Suarez. It looks like the referee has given a free-kick but he instead books the striker. I didn't think it was a dive. Barcelona players seemed to be ready to take the free-kick.

    Oh well, it's not a free-kick to anyone as the ref blows for the break.

  56. GOAL

    Marseille 2-1 Paris St-Germain - Andre-Pierre Gignac (43 mins)

    It's turning into a thriller in France, and Marseille are ahead again as Andre-Pierre Gignac grabs his second with an emphatic shot past Salvatore Sirigu.

  57. CLOSE!

    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Luis Enrique

    Celta Vigo had the ball in the net a minute ago but two of their players were offside - an easy decision. They have been impressive so far and they have an even better chance now...

    A cross comes in from the left, Faban Orellana volleys it across the box first time and Joaquin Larrivey is in loads of space, eight yards out, and he fires over. How he did he miss that?

  58. GOAL

    Marseille 1-1 Paris St-Germain - Blaise Matuidi (35 mins)

    Blaise Matuidi

    Things look grim for PSG following Marseille's goal, with David Luiz limping off injured but seconds after he is replaced by Gregory van der Wiel, the French champions equalise!

    And the goal is a cracker from Blaise Matuidi, who cuts back onto his right just outside the box before curling the ball into the top corner despite goalkeeper Steve Mandanda getting a fingertip to it.

    Marseille 1-0 Paris St-Germain

    French Ligue 1

    As things stand Lyon are top on 61 points, Marseille second on 60 and Paris St-Germain third on 59. The most exciting title race in Europe's top leagues without doubt.

  60. GOAL

    Marseille 1-0 Paris St-Germain - Andre-Pierre Gignac (30 mins)

    'Le Classique' has finally livened up after a non-descript first 30 minutes, with Andre-Pierre Gignac nipping in front of Marquinhos to powerfully head Dimitri Payet's cross into the net.


    Celta Vigo 0-0 Barcelona

    Celta Vigo's Nolito wants a penalty. Pablo Hernandez comes forward and he's so selfish, instead of playing in Nolito he goes for a Diego Maradona-style run except he loses it. The ball however lands to Nolito who's in on goal, but keeper Claudio Bravo comes out with a sliding tackle to take the ball away from the midfielder. Just.

    Moments later Michael Krohn-Dehli drives a shot from distance over.

    This game is really coming to life.

    Paris St-Germain would overtake Lyon at the top with a victory, but Marseille can go above PSG and into second spot if they win.

    Four points separates the top three, with Monaco another three points back (leaders Lyon have played one more than the rest).

    Barcelona boss Luis Enrique makes three changes - two enforced - from their last La Liga match - a 2-1 win over Real Madrid. Sergio Busquets replaces the suspended Javier Mascherano, Adriano is in for the injured Jordi Alba and Rafinha comes in for Ivan Rakitic, who is benched.

    Lionel Messi

    Barcelona legend Lionel Messi had been a slight doubt for today after missing Argentina's two recent international friendlies with a swollen foot, having flown to the USA to play in them.

    But boss Luis Enrique said: "We knew he had taken a knock. Sometimes these problems go away quickly and sometimes things get more problematic.

    "But we didn't arrange anything special with the Argentine coaches. It was a decision made by the player and his coach. Since he's been back, he's trained normally. He's fully recovered."

    But Barcelona boss Luis Enrique - who is generously including Atletico Madrid and Valencia - says: "I think it's highly unlikely that any of the four teams still in contention for the title will win all of their remaining games. Of course, I might be wrong, and if I am then I hope I'm wrong about Barca."

    Do you agree with Enrique, will there be more twists in the title race? Or are Barcelona on a title procession now all the way to the crown?
