    Espanyol 1-1 Barcelona

    It ends all square and Barcelona's unbeaten start to the season is preserved by Gerard Pique's equaliser.

    Some unsavoury scenes at the final whistle.

    Thanks for joining me.


    Espanyol 1-1 Barcelona

    Sergio Garcia down in e box under Samuel Umtiti's challenge.


    No, says the referee.

    Would have been soft.

    Espanyol 1-1 Barcelona

    Victor Sanchez and Lionel Messi have plenty to say to each other.

    The Barcelona man not happy with the attention given to him by the Espanyol skipper.

    Espanyol 1-1 Barcelona

    It's kicking off now.

    Goalscorer on goalscorer, Gerard Moreno goes in very late on Gerard Pique and is booked by the referee.

    Both sets of players are involved, but it is just handbags.

  9. GOAL - Espanyol 1-1 Barcelona

    Gerard Pique

    It had to be him!!

    Gerard Pique called Espanyol a small-town club last week and it is that man who levels up for Barcelona.

    The centre-back has been roundly jeered all game by the home supporters, but the Spain international meets Lionel Messi's cross with a towering header to plant home the equaliser.

    Pique puts his finger to his lips in front of the supporters. Shhhh.

    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique playing as the furthest man forward now.

    The visitors are pumping crosses into the box.

    So un-Barcelona-like.

  11. Post update

    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Espanyol have kept Lionel Messi quiet so far.

    Can they keep him out for the remaining 10 minutes?


    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Another yellow, this time for Sergio Garcia after he slides in dangerously on Samuel Umtiti.

    It's like a water park out there.

  13. Post update

    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    A scramble in the penalty area following a Barcelona corner, but Gerard Pique cannot get his shot away properly and it dribbles away for a goal kick.

    Espanyol have 13 minutes left to claim a stunning result against their bitter rivals.


    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Now an Espanyol substitution.

    Marc Navarro comes off and Javi Lopez takes his place.


    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Last Barcelona change.

    Lucas Digne makes way for flying full-back Jordi Alba.

    15 minutes remaining.

  16. Post update

    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Any signs of a Barcelona comeback?

    No, not at the moment.


    Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Espanyol full-back Marc Navarro in late on Luis Suarez, clipping his Achilles from behind.


  18. GOAL - Espanyol 1-0 Barcelona

    Gerard Moreno

    Big goal.

    Barcelona's 21 game unbeaten start to the season is under threat here.

    Espanyol win the ball back in midfield and sub Sergio Garcia gallops down the right.

    He curls in a brilliant cross into the box, right on the head of Gerard Moreno to head in his 12th goal of the season.

    Double joy for Espanyol fans, as it was Barca defender Gerard Pique the goalscorer got the better of.

  19. Post update

    Espanyol 0-0 Barcelona

    Espanyol are causing a few jitters for Barcelona at the back.

    Sub Sergi Roberto's clearance in the box hits Gerard Pique and Marc-Andre Ter-Stegen has to scramble away.

    Lionel Messi doesn't need football boots, he needs a raft.
