FT: Almeria 0-2 Barcelona
A final Barcelona change: Jonathan Dos Santos replaces Iniesta for Barcelona.
90+1' Tello! The Barca forward scampers in on goal but just can't slip the ball inside the far post.
89' Busquets receives his customary yellow card for a two-footer on Azeez. You'd want him on your team, though...
suso denied a goal, play pulled back for offside. he scored anyway, but flag already up beforehand.— Karl Matchett (@karlmatchett) September 28, 2013
85' Almeria have the ball in the back of the net but it's correctly whistled for offside. Rodri the guilty party in this instance.
82' Azeez and Busquets are both down. Busquets scissored Azeez from behind. Both should be fine and neither is booked.
80' Two changes: Barbosa replaces Verza for Almeria; Tello replaces Alexis for Barcelona. So Pedro, who has been battling a slight knock, will play on.
77' Barcelona pressing for a third. Alexis twisting and turning on the right-hand side of the box; he plays the ball back to Busquets, whose shot is block, and Adriano's follow-up is well wide of the target.
75' Xavi with a rare misplaced pass is intercepted by Suso, who brings it downfield. Dubarbier's eventual cross is turned away by Pique.
73' Developing a bit of an edge to it, now. Martino will surely not want to bring on Neymar.
The Adriano goal:
65' Dubarbier has replaced Vidal for Almeria. They're clearly saving him for a more winnable encounter.
62' Azeez has replaced Soriano for Almeria.
61' Decent little spell there from Almeria. Nelson carried the ball forward and after a few passes the ball was at Vidal's feet; he held it up but couldn't find a target in the box.
Delightful little shimmy by Xavi in the buildup to the goal. He then stabbed the ball to Fabregas who crossed into the box for the on-rushing Adriano.
56' GOAL BARCELONA! Adriano doubles the guests' advantage!
Messi sustained a right thigh muscle injury in the first half of the match against Almería. He will undergo additional tests on Sunday.— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 28, 2013
Messi has a right thigh strain. Tests tomorrow to determine extent of the injury— Inside La Liga (@InsideLaLiga) September 28, 2013
53' Whistles from the home crowd after Verza was brought down as he looked to run onto Suso's ball. And they may have a point. Should have been a free kick.
52' Nelson fouls Pedro and Xavi steps up. His free kick is cleared by Pellerano.
