    Luis Enrique

    It's less than a year since Luis Enrique was reportedly on the brink of being sacked as Barcelona boss. The board stuck with him and since then they're won five trophies. Talk about repaying the faith.

    See you in two hours for Real Madrid (last year's world champions) v Rayo Vallecano.

    Barcelona keeper Claudio Bravo won the Copa America with Chile in the summer.


    Neymar is subsituted

    Barcelona make the final change of the game. Jeremy Mathieu comes on for Neymar. A defender for a striker. It sounds like Neymar is getting whistled off the pitch.

    River Plate have their best chance of the game - substitute Gonzalo Martinez whacks a shot in from 20 yards which Claudio Bravo touches onto the post with an excellent diving save.


    Javier Mascherano is substituted

    Luis Suarez scores his fifth goal in two games in this tournament. Neymar plays in a brilliant cross from the left and the Uruguayan pulls off a fantastic header to find the top corner.

    Barcelona have been breathtaking at times here.
