    Luis Suarez (90+3 mins)

    Messi plays an excellent ball over the top and Suarez clips it over the head of Tomas Vaclik.

    Gbadero Toluwalope: Why in the world is Messi being ranked amongst normals? He should be ranked in his own world! The REAL consecutive best player for the past 12 years or thereabouts. Sincere comment from an EPL fan, a neutral. UNPLAYABLE!

  8. GOAL - Sevilla 2-3 Lionel Messi

    Hat-trick (85 mins)

    He's done it! Lionel Messi gets his hat-trick and Barcelona are set to win this game.

    Carles Alena's shot is blocked and lands at the feet of Messi, 10 yards out, who just chips the ball over Tomas Vaclik.

    The greatest.

  9. YELLOW CARD

    Sevilla's Pablo Sarabia catches Jordi Alba in the face with a rogue hand. Booked.

  11. YELLOW CARD

    Sevilla defender Simon Kjaer cuts across Lionel Messi and brings him down. He's been booked. The Dane goes over and tells Messi to get up.

    The final change of the game as Carles Alena comes on for Barcelona. The 21-year-old midfielder has become an important player for Barcelona in recent weeks. Philippe Coutinho, who is still struggling for form, is off.

    Scott: Messi has scored an absolutely worldie on his left foot, now one on his right foot. Ludicrously amazing.

  17. Post update

    It's almost a hat-trick for the main man. He cuts in from the right and fires an effort just over the bar from about 20 yards out. So close.
