De Jong has been in exceptional form in recent weeks. The Dutch midfielder played one of his best games in a Barcelona shirt in the Copa del Rey final victory over Athletic Club.
Speculation around Messi’s future has died down in recent weeks and months, following the election of a new president, but Laporta still has to agree a new contract with the Argentine.
Messi has been in sensational form of late, scoring four times in his last two appearances. The 33-year-old is playing with a smile on his face again. Surely he’s not going to leave?
Messi is back on his feet and that is a relief for everyone. He was fortunate that his foot wasn't planted when Trigueros made contact with his studs. The Argentine is running around.
SENT OFF! It's a straight red card for Trigueros who followed through with a tackle into the ankle of Messi! He can have no complaints about that! An easy decision for the referee to make.
A Barcelona change now and Ilaix comes on for Pedri who has looked quite tired today.
Ter Stegen makes the save! What a chance for Capoue to equalise! Estupinan cut the ball back for the midfielder, but his shot was straight down the middle and ter Stegen saves with his legs!
... and here's Estupinan as well to give the hosts some threat out wide.
Two changes for the home side as Coquelin comes on for Villarreal...
After this, Villarreal face a potentially season-defining match against Villarreal in the semi finals of the Europa League. Emery will face his former employers Arsenal. Great storyline!
Messi on the right foot! The Argentine surged to the edge of the box, he had Griezmann on his right side, but decided to take on the shot himself. His effort flashes over the target.
Chance for Griezmann! The ball into the middle from Roberto was a good one, but it was always going to be difficult for Griezmann to guide his shot on target. Flashes well wide.
Villarreal have cranked up the intensity and urgency of their play in the last five minutes or so. They are moving the ball around much quicker in an attempt to get in behind Barca.
Griezmann is shown the first yellow card of the match for a late tackle.
It should be noted that Roberto came on at half time. Sorry, totally missed that.
