  1. Goodbye

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Time to call it a night, folks.

    Don't worry. We're back tomorrow with another dose of La Liga action.

    Will Real Madrid's game at Girona be as dramatic as Barcelona's trip to Real Valladolid?

    Build up starts at 21:00 BST with kick-off at 21:15 BST.

    Until then...

  2. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona


    Barcelona make it two wins out of two and are yet to concede.

    Lots of positives too for Real Valladolid despite defeat.

    Both contributed to a belting match.


    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona crawl over the line with three points.

    Real Valladolid's players sink to their knees. They have given this absolutely everything.

  4. Video Assistant Referee

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona


    Oh. My. Word.

    Valladolid have the ball in the back of the Barca net.

    Keko's diving header inside the six yard area sparks wild celebrations all around the ground but was he offside?

    The referee waits for the VAR decision. There's an agonising delay before the goal is eventually disallowed.

    Heartbreak for the hosts!

  5. CLOSE!

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona


    Is this 2-0?

    Malcom cuts inside and lets fly with a low and hard attempt but Jordi Masip produces another excellent stop.

  6. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    A slip by Gerard Pique but Marc-Andre ter Stegen is off his line to prevent a Valladolid shirt from taking advantage.


    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Barca send on Malcom - their £36.5m signing from Bordeaux. Not a bad sub to have with five minutes remaining. Philippe Coutinho makes way.

  8. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    The ball is in the back of the Valladolid net but it won't count.

    Messi bursts forward before passing to Luis Suarez who produces an unstoppable finish.

    Unfortunately Suarez didn't time his run properly and Barca's celebrations are cut short.

    The hosts are still in this.


    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Barca have sent on Arturo Vidal for the closing stages in place of goalscorer Ousmane Dembele.

  10. CLOSE!

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona.

    Massive chance for Valladolid!

    A wonderful cross by substitute Duje Cop lands on the head of fellow sub Keko but it's straight at Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

    Yells of frustration from the home fans.

  11. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Brilliant injection of pace by Oscar Plano wins Valladolid a corner. They're not done. Far from it. No one is leaving the ground. Their team might be behind but home fans are cheering every kick.

  12. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Valladolid have made a couple of changes to try and freshen things up. They haven't managed a shot on target this half and the clock is ticking. Around 20 minutes remaining.

  13. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Relentless from Barca as they drive at Valladolid's defence. The hosts look dead on their feet after running themselves into the ground before Dembele's breakthrough.

    Whatever the outcome, the champions know they have been in a game.

  14. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    That's knocked the wind out of Valladolid.

    Have they got enough left in the tank to find an equaliser?

    Gerard Pique is booked for another foul.

  15. GOAL - Real Valladolid 0-1 Barcelona

    Ousmane Dembele


    Finally Barca get their noses in front but Real Valladolid's players are furious.

    Ousmane Dembele drills past the keeper after Sergi Roberto's knock down header.

    Valladolid claim Roberto was out of play when he headed the ball into Dembele's path. The goal stands!

    Barca celebrate

    Real Valladolid 0-0 Barcelona

    This is getting tasty.

    Enes Unal is the first player to be booked after his lunges into Sergio Busquets.

    Moments later the crowd demands the referee cautions Luis Suarez for a foul Ruben Alcaraz. Replays show Suarez flung his hand into his opponents chest. The match official decides against a booking.

  17. CLOSE!

    Real Valladolid 0-0 Barcelona

    Enes Unal is really turning on the style. The young Turk has been a real menace and he shows confidence and quality as he tries to curl the hosts into the lead from the edge of the penalty area. Fine effort.

  18. Post update

    Real Valladolid 0-0 Barcelona

    Ivan Rakitic with a huge punt forward...which almost catches out Valladolid's keeper.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Real Valladolid 0-0 Barcelona

    Huge 45 minutes coming up for both teams. We're under way.

  20. Post update
