    Bilbao lift the Supercopa

    A great result and performance over the two legs for Athletic Bilbao but a wake-up call for Barcelona. 

    Can they respond when La Liga kicks off next weekend? It is going to be interesting to find out.

    Goodnight from me!

    Not many other teams get the chance to enjoy a party on the Nou Camp pitch. The Athletic Bilbao players are making the most of it now, and rightly so. 

    A warning shot for Barcelona.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Three added minutes, exhibition time for the Athletic Bilbao players. Barcelona players want to get off the pitch as soon as possible.

  8. Post update

    Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    PEEEP! A familiar sound for Barcelona as Lionel Messi runs through, the linesman raises his flag and the referee blows his whistle. Offside.

    Goal aside. Messi has been anonymous. 

  9. RED CARD - Kike Sola (Athletic Bilbao)

    Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    Kike Sola lasts just seven minutes on the pitch as he is sent off for standing on Javier Mascherano.

    Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    The thing other sides will take from this is that the Barcelona defence is not a fearsome presence. Nine goals conceded in just three games. Plenty for Luis Enrique to mull before their La Liga opener.

  14. GOAL

    Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    The atmosphere has gone from the  Nou Camp with the home fans resigned to defeat. 

    Goalscorer Aritz Aduriz's work his done as he is replaced by Kike Sola.

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    Jeremy Mathieu was guilty of fluffing up that one, gifting possession needlessly to Athletic Bilbao. 

    No chance of winning all six trophies they contest this season for Barcelona.

  16. GOAL - Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao (1-5 agg)

    Aritz Aduriz

    That's it! Athletic Bilbao are going to win tehir first trophy in 31 years as the absence of Gerard Pique costs Barcelona. Home keeper Claudio Bravo suddenly finds his defence missing and facing  Aritz Aduriz alone. He saves the striker's first shot but can't hold it and Aduriz doesn't miss a second time.

  17. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    There is a glimmers of a cracking understanding between Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, but they need it to click more often. One such combination between the two sees Messi feed a pass to Suarez, who runs at the defence and opens up a little gap, but shoots wide.

    Lionel Messi
  18. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Changes for both sides as we pass the midway mark of this half. 

    Ivan Rakitic comes off and  20 year-old striker Sandro Ramirez comes on. Meanwhile, Pedro is replaced by another young forward, 19-year-old Munir El Haddadi. 

    Gorka Elustondo replaces fellow defender Xabier Etxeita.

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Some furious finger wagging from Aritz Aduriz after the forward and Claudio Bravo charge in on a loose ball and the Barcelona keeper gets there just before him. Aduriz is furious, but can consider himself lucky not to receive a second yellow there.

  21. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Luis Suarez wraps his foot around the shot from the edge of the area from Lionel Messi's knock down but his low drive is straight at the keeper. Barcelona have upped the tempo, but time is against them... 

  22. YELLOW CARD

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    A flurry of yellows are produced as Athletic Bilbao try to disrupt the Barcelona momentum. 

    First, Aritz Aduriz is booked before Benat Etxebarria is cautioned for a weighty challenge.

  23. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    What's this?? Barcelona are actually playing better now and should have a second! 

    Jeremy Mathieu crosses across the face of goal and to the far post where Ivan Rakitic must score...but he knees it wide.

    Ivan Rakitic
  24. RED CARD - Gerard Pique (Barcelona)

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Disaster for Barcelona! Gerard Pique, who had been acting as pretty much an extra striker, is not happy about something and is protesting to the linesman. Over comes the referee and out comes the red card. 

    What a task for the hosts now, surely it is too big?

    Gerard Pique is sent off
  25. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Luis Suarez to Pedro...offside. 

    Soon after, Athletic Bilbao almost catch out Barcelona on the break but Markel Susaeta's shot lacks conviction and Claudio Bravo makes the save. 

    Pedro shoots
  26. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Barcelona are living dangerously in pursuit of that next goal and it is allowing Athletic Bilbao to occasionally attack. 

    Oscar de Marcos is inside the area and has half a chance, but the block is made just in time.

  27. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Andres Iniesta charges down the left and to the edge of the box, he tries to sneak inside but Eneko Boveda sticks out a boot to poke the ball away from him. Luis Suarez steals in to win possession back, but his cross is blocked. Athletic Bilbao have 10 players behind the ball. It is going to be a tough nut to crack.

  28. KICK-OFF

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    No side has ever lost the first leg of the Super Cup 4-0 and gone on to win it. Can Barcelona make history?

    Second half under way.

  29. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    I was one when Athletic Bilbao last won a trophy - 31 years ago. Could that wait be 45 minutes away from ending? They have done a great job of nullifying Barcelona, but have they got the energy to keep it up for the rest of the game?

  30. Premier League full time

    Over in the Premier League, Liverpool made it two wins from two in the Premier League as they edged Bournemouth 1-0. You can get all the reaction to that result here.

    For all their possession, Lionel Messi's goal was their first shot on target. Big second half needed.

  33. HALF-TIME

    Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Well, the game certainly needed that. Still a big task, but hope for Barcelona.

    Lionel Messi
  34. Post update

    Then Gerard Pique goes close! Athletic Bilbao will be desperate for the half-time whistle.

  35. GOAL - Barcelona 1-0 Athletic Bilbao (1-4 agg)

    Lionel Messi

    Could it be on!

    They've been knocking and knocking and now they finally get through the door. Brilliant move as Ivan Rakitic curls the ball into the area, Luis Suarez chests it into the path of Lionel Messi and he makes no mistake from six yards.

    The Nou Camp erupts into noise, just what Barcelona needed. 

    Messi shoots for this goal
  36. YELLOW CARD

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Frustration from that miss? Javier Eraso is the first player to go in the book tonight as he pulls back Andres Ineista after the Barcelona man had nicked the ball off of him.

  37. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Oh my, lucky escape for Barcelona! 

    Javier Eraso steals the ball just outside of the area and skips a challenge to get inside the box. He has a team-mate square but goes for glory and shoots into the sidenetting.

  38. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Luis Suarez, now there's a name I haven't mentioned for a while, wins the ball and has the chance to start a promising attack, he attempts to slip the ball through to Ivan Rakitic but once again an Athletic Bilbao defender is wise to it and snuffs out the pass.

    Andres Iniesta

    Andres Iniesta skews a shot from the edge of the area high and wide.

  41. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Now then. Free-kick for Barcelona, a shade over 25 yards out from goal but very much Lionel Messi territory. He fancies it, but curls the ball on to the roof of the net.

    Must. Do. Better.

  42. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Manchester United fans look away now!

    Brilliant opportunity for Barcelona as a low corner routine is worked to Pedro just outside the box. The forward has time and space as he runs on to the ball and seems certain to drive a low shot into the net but no! Embarrassing air kick ensues...

  43. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Barcelona have had 80% possession but that's no good without the goals to show for it. 

    Apart from smacking the woodwork once, Barcelona haven't actually really threatened the Athletic Bilbao goal.

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Oscar de Marcos cleverly wins Athletic Bilbao a corner by smacking the ball against a Barcelona player. Benat Etxebarria swings the ball in to a chorus of boos, and Gerard Pique leaps to power a headed clearance away. Pique has been brilliant so far at both ends of the pitch.

  46. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Twenty minutes in - the time I reckoned Barcelona needed to have at least one goal by to win this. I'll stand by that. Athletic Bilbao are looking more composed after weathering that early storm.

  47. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Barcelona are committing numbers forward and are almost caught out as a result as Benat Etxebarria skips away down the right, crosses low into the area but can't quite find his team-mate.

  48. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Athletic Bilbao are playing a high line and have caught Barcelona out a few times with it, the hosts seeing the offside flag more than they would like.

    However, they almost catch them out when Andres Iniesta lifts the ball over the top and Lionel Messi peels away from the defence, but just can't quite reach the ball.

  49. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Breath caught. 

    After that gung-ho start things have settled down a bit now. The hosts had been throwing everything at the Athletic Bilbao backline but are now taking a more considered approach, trying to find a genuine opening, rather than force it.

    ...Ivan Rakitic takes it, the ball sails over the heads of everyone but to Luis Suarez on the far side. The striker's ball just fails to find the head of Gerard Pique, who is almost acting as a fourth striker at the moment.

    Probably the least surprising statistic of the evening, but Barcelona are giving it a good go in the opening 10 minutes.

  53. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Barcelona mean business! 

    A succession of chances as first Lionel Messi lifts the ball into the area for the run of Pedro, who shoots but his effort is deflected behind. From the corner, Gerard Pique crashes a volley against the bar.

    What a start to this game.

  54. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Conceding an early goal would be a disaster for Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao players know that. They are snapping and snarling at the hosts as soon as they have possession, trying to force an error. Barcelona are holding their nerve for now, though...

  55. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Yep, as expected Barcelona bolt out of the blocks and the crowd roar as Luis Suarez goes through to chase a ball over the top. Offside.

  56. KICK-OFF

    Barcelona 0-0 Athletic Bilbao

    This is very much new territory for Luis Enrique. 

    In his first season in charge, Barcelona beat their opponents in every one of their knockout games in the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

    A good test for the Barca boss. Can he rise to the challenge?

    We are under way.

    Barcelona have produced a couple of good comebacks in recent years. Back in 2010, they lost 3-1 at Sevilla in the first leg of the Super Cup but won the return leg 4-0, Lionel Messi bagging a hat-trick.

    Then, in the last 16 of the 2012-13 Champions League, they beat AC Milan 4-0 in the second leg - again at the Nou Camp - after losing the first leg 2-0.

    Luis Enrique

    Barca boss Luis Enrique knows well enough that he has quite a task on his hands. 

    Nevertheless, he's confident.

    "We know it's a challenge, but I think we've a team who can do it," he said.

    "If we get things right, I am sure we can turn things around. Everyone knows Barcelona is capable of anything."

  68. A big task for Barca

    Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao (0-4 agg)

    Barcelona

    It is not often Barcelona are faced with the task of doing something they have never done before, but that's the case tonight.

    After a stunning first-leg in which Athletic Bilbao ran riot, Barcelona have a four-goal deficit to overcome. 

    It is a big ask, but a couple of early goals and we could have a very interesting game on our hands...

  69. Counting on a comeback?

    Comebacks in football. Great aren't they?

    From Manchester United's stunning turnaround against Bayern Munich in 1999...  

    Manchester United in 1999

    ...to Liverpool's stirring response against AC Milan in 2005, witnessing a seemingly unlikely revival occur is a brilliant experience.

    The stage might not have the same gravitas as a Champions League final, but a Barcelona comeback against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup tonight would be a sight to see.

    Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez

    And even if they don't manage it, a bit of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez going full throttle is worth a watch in itself...
