    Barcelona 5-0 Eibar

    It hasn't been brilliant from Barca, but they've enjoyed themselves in the last few moments at the Nou Camp.

  4. GOAL - Barcelona 5-0 Eibar


    It's so close to a debut goal for Martin Braithwaite.

    His shot is saved by Marko Dmitrovic but Arthur is there to convert the rebound.

  5. GOAL - Barcelona 4-0 Eibar

    Lionel Messi

    Four for Barcelona.

    Four for Lionel Messi.

    It's a debut assist for Martin Braithwaite, who does well to pick out Messi who slots past teh helpless Marko Dmitrovic.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Another one!

    This time it's Artuto Vidal who strays offside for Barcelona. There's a quick VAR check but the no goal decision stands.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Barcelona have the ball in the back of the Eibar net but it's ruled out for offside.

    Samuel Umtiti manages to bundle the ball over the line but fails to hold his run.

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    It's been a much less eventful second half than we were treated to in the first, mainly because Eibar have really put a shift in and threatened Marc-Andre ter Stegen's goal on a few occasions now.

    Barcelona weren't even that great in the first half. The problem for Eibar was that Lionel Messi was.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Former Middlesbrough and Leganes striker Martin Braithwaite is on for Barcelona.

    He replaces Antoine Griezmann in Quique Setien's third and final change.

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Emergency signing Martin Braithwaite is warming up for Barcelona, who clearly momentarily forgot they had Lionel Messi when applying for special permission to sign a striker.

    His Barcelona debut looks imminent.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    It's been a good spell for Eibar who haven't let their heads drop after the Lionel Messi show in the first half.

    Frenkie de Jong has come on for Sergio Busquets in the last couple of minutes, while Gerard Pique has just been replaced by Samuel Umtiti.

    Pablo De Blasis is also on for Eibar in place of Takasha Inui.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Eibar have another goal disallowed and this time it's for a foul on Gerard Pique.

    Gonzalo Escalante raises his boot to meet the cross and receives a yellow card for that one.


    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Oh that's a great attempt!

    Eibar left-back Cote bends a free-kick towards the corner but Marc-Andre ter Stegen is on his toes and is able to push it wide.

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Full-time in the Bundesliga, and Erling Haaland has helped Borussia Dortmund to a 2-0 win against Werder Bremen that takes them second in the table.

    Third placed RB Leipzig are in action later today and can return second with victory against Schalke.

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Clement Lenglet is clever to draw a foul and end a period of slight Eibar pressure.

    Still no sign of Martin Braithwaite just yet as we edge towards the hour mark, bur Frenkie de Jong appears to be warming up as Barca look to take it easy on Eibar...

  16. Post update

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    A disappointing patch for Lionel Messi, who has scored zero goals in this half.

    There's not much happening at the minute, with Barcelona dominating the ball and forcing Eibar to work hard just to keep up.

  17. Post update

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Another good save by Eibar keeper Marko Dmitrovic denies Barcelona.

    Ivan Rakitic meets Antoine Griezmann's cross at the back post but Dmitrovic reacts quickly to produce a smart save.

  18. Post update

    Barcelona 3-0 Eibar

    Lionel Messi has, believe it or not, already scored four goals in a single game against Eibar.

    That came in a 6-1 win in September 2017.

    It has so far looked like he's absolutely going for a PB today.

    Abid: Its Messi 3-0 Eibar. Barcelona have been quite poor otherwise. Its been a one man show. Hard to believe he's 32.

    Like a fine wine.
