Spotify Camp Nou / 06.02.2022
A very dramatic match
Thanks for following it with us.
Clever play from Torres
He lures two defenders to him near the corner flag then pokes the ball between them and draws a free kick.
Wass goes into the book
A shoulder barge on Aubameyang's chest as he was running towards the penalty area.
The referee wants to have a look if Carrasco was fouled in the box by Dest but the replays showed he made a lot of very slight contact.
Xavi also gets a yellow card
And it seems it was his brother who was dismissed.
The referee rushes to the touchline
He sends off one of the Barcelona assistant staff. What a strange game this is.
Koke is replaced by Herrera
A last tactical move for Simeone.
De Jong goes into the book
A sliding challenge with his studs showing. Barcelona could have been down to nine men with a different referee.
Frenkie de Jong
Alves is sent off!
What a crazy match this has been for him. The man of the match up until this point, but that was a stupid thing to do, whether the impact was exaggerated a little or not.
Alves with a nasty looking stamp on Carrasco's calf
And the referee is going to the VAR screen to review it.
Nico replaces Pedri
The youngster gets an ovation from the home fans as he leaves the field.
Giminez heads just over the bar
Carrasco again the provider with a fine cross with his right foot from the left flank.
Aubameyang enters the fray!
I'd forgotten about him, such was the drama we've seen so far. He replaces Traore who has had a fine debut.
GOAL FOR ATLETICO!
Suarez heads home from close range after De Paul's corner is headed back across the box by Giminez.
Carrasco almost catches ter Stegen out
He curls a free kick from near the left touchline that the Dutch keeper has to stretch to tip over the bar.
Triple substitution for Atletico
Cunha, Reinildo and Correa come on for Hermoso, Lemar and Joao Felix.
Atletico can't get close to the ball
Barcelona playing the ball from side to side and demoralising the Atletico side.
GOAL FOR BARCELONA!
After his remarkable assist earlier in the match, Alves has his own goal now smashing a low drive home after Gavira pulled a low cross into the box and Pedri dummied at the near post.
Barcelona restart the game..
Wass replaces Vrsaljko for Atletico
