Messi to Man City?

BBC Radio 5 Live

Times chief football writer Henry Winter: "Lionel Messi is not being badly paid by Barcelona. Lifestyle wise Barcelona is quite nice. 

"He is also an intelligent individual who looks at his career and thinks if he comes to the Premier League with no winter break, with the Capital One Cup, which he probably won't play him in, there is the FA Cup as well...he will be exhausted by the time the major honours are contested.

"If he is going to be rated among the greatest players of all time, and you look at Pele and Diego Maradona being in the top two in terms of the World Cup, Messi has still got to deliver a World Cup. Maybe it is all about the money but I just think with Messi it is about the career and his standing in history."

CLOSE

Barcelona 3-0 Real Sociedad

Barcelona are getting closer and closer to a fourth goal. This time Lionel Messi's free-kick flashes past the post.

CLOSE

Barcelona 3-0 Real Sociedad

Lionel Messi is still hunting his first La Liga goal for two months. He goes ever so close with a volley that flies inches wide of the post. Barcelona are not sitting back. They want more goals.

Paris St Germain 0-0 Troyes

Two big early chances for Paris St-Germain to take the lead - both falling to Edinson Cavani. Still goalless. 

GOAL - Barcelona 3-0 Real Sociedad

Neymar (53 mins)

You just can't stop this man. Neymar bags his second of the match and his 14th in 12 La Liga games this season after slotting home from Jeremy Mathieu's cross. Real Sociedad appeal for off side but the celebrations begin.

'On the cusp of greatness'

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon: "I'm looking at Barcelona now and they look like they are on the cusp of greatness with the way they are playing. It's very early in the season. I didn't think I'd see a team as good as the Barcelona side that beat Manchester United in the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley. But this current team is starting to show a lot of similarities to the one four years ago."

GOAL - Barcelona 2-0 Real Sociedad

Luis Suarez

Barcelona double their lead four minutes before the end of the first half. And what a goal. A wonderful Barca attack ends with Luis Suarez hammering a volley into the back of the net in spectacular style. A wonderful effort from the former Liverpool man.

Guardiola to Man City?

BBC Radio 5 Live

Times chief football writer Henry Winter: "The Pep Guardiola link is slightly more do-able. You can see the logic in terms of the individuals in power at Manchester City. 

"Guardiola has talked very politely about English football in the past but from a footballing romantic prospective why leave this Bayern Munich side? They have got some decent players there. 

"I know Barcelona are probably the best team in Europe at the minute but Bayern Munich are playing some of the most beautiful football. Maybe sometime after Christmas Bayern Munich will announce a new contract for him. He is a special manager."

Guardiola to Man City?

It is not only Lionel Messi who Manchester City want. The Premier League big-spenders also want Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.

According to Saturday's Daily Mail, Bayern will fight to keep Guardiola as speculation intensifies over him joining  City.

French Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches will be played without away supporters for a second successive weekend on government orders in the wake of the Paris attacks. 

The French football league - the LFP - also said the ruling is set to apply for the subsequent three rounds of Ligue 1 games, the next two rounds of Ligue 2 fixtures, along with matches in the Coupe de France, Champions League and Europa League. 

It means travelling fans will be able to attend games again on December 18-20, the final weekend before the French game goes on its Christmas break. 

We'll bring you score updates from the first half of Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain's game with Troyes. It is the first time PSG have played at home since the attacks on 13 November.

Neymar

It was only a matter of time. Neymar makes it 13 goals in 12 La Liga games this season with a composed left-foot finish following good work by Dani Alves.

'Obscene'

Messi to Man City?

BBC Radio 5 Live

Former Aston Villa and Manchester United striker Dion Dublin: "If there is a club willing to pay you £800,000 a week, are you really going to be bothered about the climate and the standard of life? 

"Manchester City probably could afford it but it's obscene. I don't care how good the player is. How could you pay someone that amount? I'm not having that."

Messi to Man City?

BBC Radio 5 Live

Times chief football writer Henry Winter:"I would love to see it happen but I still think it is a long way from La Rambla to the Manchester Ship Canal.

"From the Premier League's prospective it would be sensational to have Lionel Messi over here to sprinkle a little bit of gold dust. You have seen how we reacted when Jurgen Klopp came over and put on a masterclass of a press conference. 

"The fact a real showman could come in like Messi, who delivers, who is probably one of the top five players of all-time, I think Richard Scudamore, the broadcasters, even the rivals clubs, would love to see him over here."
