  9. Post update

    Barcelona 3-1 Eibar

    Eibar have put up a brave fight but they are going away with nothing. They can at least take this battling display into the rest of their season. They started today in sixth spot - and they deserve to be there on this evidence.

  10. GOAL - Barcelona 3-1 Eibar

    Luis Suarez

    Luis Suarez

    Absolutely brilliant by Luis Suarez. His team is down to 10 men but Suarez puts the game out of Eibar's reach with a sublime finish to seal his hat-trick.

    Wonderful control with his chest to bring the ball down and drill home from just inside the area. Barca fans are out of their seats to applaud the forward.

  11. RED CARD - Javier Mascherano

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Has Javier Mascherano just handed Eibar a way back into this? The former Liverpool is shown a straight red card for something he has said to the referee after Eibar had conceded yet another free-kick.

    Barca are down to 10 men for the final few minutes. 

  12. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Luis Enrique

    Barca are 10 minutes away from drawing level on points with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. This has been much harder than Luis Enrique's side could have envisaged. Eibar have been terrific. 

  13. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Barcelona are getting closer and closer to a third goal. Another free-kick just outside Eibar's box. Neymar this time gives way to Ivan Rakitic who is not far away.

  14. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Luis Suarez can smell a hat-trick. He attempts an audacious lob from long range which flies into the crowd behind the goal. The Uruguay forward smiles and raises his hand in acknowledgement to team-mates who were screaming for a pass.

    Simone Verdi

    Credit to Eibar. They have not given up on this. They are prodding and probing the home defence but they are beginning to leave gaps at the back.

  16. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Gonzalo Escalante is playing a dangerous game. He's just been booked and is then involved in an off the ball collision with Neymar just outside Eibar's area. The crowd is howling but the referee is not interested. 

  17. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Eibar

    Neymar kicks

    Neymar's free-kicks have been disappointing this game. His latest fails to clear the wall. Are Barca saving themselves for El Clasico next month? This has been a scratchy performance by their usual high standards.

    Luis Suarez's double means he has scored nine goals in all competitions for Barcelona this season. Barca certainly know they have been in a game. Eibar are not holding back when it comes to challenges with Neymar on the end of a crunching tackle by Gonzalo Escalante which earns the Eibar player a yellow card.,

    What a start to the second half. Momemts after Eibar miss a chance to take the lead, Barcelona do find the net as Luis Suarez drills home from just inside the area after Neymar's pass. It's a great finish by the former Liverpool player but Eibar will be kicking themselves. Tough challenge ahead for them now.

  25. KICK-OFF

    Barcelona 1-1 Eibar

    Eibar fans have enjoyed some wonderful moments over the last two years. But securing a draw against reigning European champions Barcelona at the Nou Camp would top them all.

    Even Neymar's magic from free-kicks have deserted him. Barcelona win a set-piece within sight of the Eibar goal but the Brazilian's curling effort fizzes well wide.

  32. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 1-1 Eibar

    Eibar have already made history by scoring their first goal against Barcelona. Can they now pull off one of the biggest shocks in recent times in La Liga? They're certainly giving it a good go. Keko does well to round the keeper but his effort is just about scrambled clear.

  36. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 1-1 Eibar

    Eibar are certainly not short of confidence. The Basque club weather a wave of Barcelona attacks to break on the counter. Simone Verdi tries his luck from outside the area - it's not a bad effort as it smashes into the side netting. Barca's defence is looking a little vulnerable.

    Barcelona's poor run without a clean sheet continues as Eibar score stun the Nou Camp with their first ever goal against the Spanish giant.

    Incredible but true...Barcelona have not kept a clean sheet in their last six La Liga game. Luis Enrique's side have conceded 11 times in that period. 

    "People are asking about clean sheets, but for me the most important thing is just to make sure we win the game," said Enrique.

  50. GOAL - Fiorentina 0-1 Roma

    Mohamed Salah (6 mins)

    As well as Barcelona, we're also keeping an eye on a huge game in Italy, with leaders Fiorentina hosting third-placed Roma. Fiorentina, who have not won Serie A since 1969, will open up a three point lead at the top of the table if they win while a defeat will hand Roma a two-point cushion at the summit. That match kicked off at 17:00 GMT and Roma have taken an eearly lead through Mohamed Salah.

    AC Milan 2-1 Sassuolo

    .

    What a day for 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

    The AC Milan youngster was handed his debut for the seven-time European champions against Sassuolo - and helped Milan to their first victory in four league games.

    Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic opted to replace former Real Madrid keeper Diego Lopez, 33, with Donnarumma, who was born in 1999.

    The hosts took the lead through Carlos Bacca's penalty after Sassuolo keeper Andrea Consigli was sent off. Domenico Berardi levelled before Luiz Adriano scored Milan's late winner.

    Donnarumma is the youngest ever goalkeeper to start a Serie A match. 

  55. Three changes for Barca

    Barcelona v Eibar (17:15 GMT)

    Barca make three changes to the side that started the 2-0 win away to BATE Borisov in the Champions League on Tuesday.

    Keeper Claudio Bravo, midfielder Ivan Rakitic and forward Sandro Ramires all return - with Sergi Roberto, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Munir El Haddadi making way.

  56. El Clasico on the radar

    Barcelona v Eibar (17:15 GMT)

    A Barcelona win will send them level on points with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga - four weeks before the first El Clasico of the season.

    The trouble is Eibar have made a fine start to their second season in Spain's top flight. 

    Four years ago they were playing in the third level of Spanish football. Right now, they are the sixth best team in Spain.

  57. David versus Goliath

    Nou Camp

    One club is a European giant who have won their domestic title 23 times. The other is a small club in the Basque country with no major honours. One spent £75m on a global super star in the summer of 2014. The other spent 75,000 euros on a winger.

    When it comes to David versus Goliath stories, modern-day football surely doesn't have anything better to offer than Eibar's trip to Barcelona.
