FT: Barcelona 4-1 Valladolid
There will be 3 minutes of added time. Totally unnecessary. Barcelona have done what they came to do and are killing the game off.
It's been a very quiet crowd and there won't be many fans left at the final whistle. Of course, it's quarter-to-midnight in the Catalan capital.
87' Alcatraz replaces Bergdich for Valladolid.
4-1: xXx + Njr92 (short for Barcelona lead 4-1 v Valladolid through goals by AleXis, Xavi, AleXis and Neymar Jr).— Infostrada Sports (@InfostradaLive) October 5, 2013
84' Neymar accepts Xavi's pass and tries his luck from distance, but his left-footer sails well over the bar.
84' Barcelona playing keep-away now and just slowing the play down. Already folks are exiting the stadium.
80' Valladolid have the ball in the back but it's waved off after a foul on Dani Alves by Valiente.
79' Busquets replaces Pique for Barcelona.
76' Neymar goes down in the box again. This time the referee got it right - there wasn't enough contact.
Alexis wastes chance for a hat-trick....by giving it to Neymar instead. 4-1.— Sid Lowe (@sidlowe) October 5, 2013
73' Pedro replaces Tello for Barcelona.
70' GOAL BARCELONA! Neymar finally gets his goal! Alexis played the ball to Alves who sent through Xavi. The Spaniard clipped it back to Alexis, who unselfishly turned the ball back to Neymar in the goalmouth, and the Brazilian finished inside the right post. Exceptional interplay in the buildup.
Neymar impressive through the centre and that's definitely something Barça can think about when Messi returns - have the two interchanging.— Ben Hayward (@bghayward) October 5, 2013
Meanwhile, Iniesta has replaced Fabregas for Barcelona.
Barça's counter proves lethal as Dani Alves recovers possession, Xavi finds Neymar, and the Brazilian sends Alexis through on goal. (3-1)— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) October 5, 2013
Alexis makes it 3-1, his second. (But it's Neymar who's really stood out)— Sid Lowe (@sidlowe) October 5, 2013
64' GOAL BARCELONA! And it's Alexis again! Xavi found Neymar with a nice pass, and the Brazilian laid the ball off expertly to his right for Alexis to run onto. The Chilean needed only a single touch to find the back of the net and double his side's lead.
62' Oh Neymar! Wonderful back-heel on the swivel but the defender just got a toe on it. Barcelona turning the screw.
61' Osorio has replaced the goalscorer Guerra for Valladolid.
Beautiful goal by Barcelona - wonderfully simplistic and extremely effective. Golazo and deserved after the poor penalty decision.— Ben Hayward (@bghayward) October 5, 2013
58' Tello! The Barcelona forward rings a dipping effort off the bar!
57' Neymar is desperate to score. He and Tello combine in the buildup and Barcelona with another free kick. Alves takes it and it's deflected out for a corner. Xavi's out-swinger is cleared.
