Minute   Description
90' +5 FULL-TIME: DEPORTIVO ALAVES 0-2 BARCELONA.
90' +4 Pina gets yellow.
Pina receives a yellow card after catching Coutinho with a late challenge.
90' +2 Twumasi swings in a cross towards the far post from the left wing where Guidetti is waiting. The substitute does get his head to the ball, but he can only find the side netting with his effort. Even if he had found the back of the net though, he fouls Arthur in the process and the referee awards Barcelona a free-kick.
89' Messi and Coutinho are passing the ball between them to get around the Alaves defenders as they run into the box. In the end, they overplay it and Laguardia makes an important tackle to dispossess Messi.
87' Arthur enters the game and replaces Aleñà.
Alena, the scorer of the opening goal, is coming off for Barcelona and he's replaced by Arthur.
85' Roberto finds himself in a lot of space down the left wing and he tries to square the ball into the middle of the box where Messi is waiting. He almost picks out his team-mate, but Laguardia beats him to it and is able to clear the danger.
83' Alaves are having to depend on Barcelona giving the ball away at the minute to win back possession. Barca are keeping it high up the field, but sometimes their final pass into the box is poor.
81' J. Guidetti enters the game and replaces Jony.
Final roll of the dice for Fernandez now as Guidetti is on for Alaves in Jony's place.
80' Messi drops back into midfield to pick up the ball as he tries to make something happen for his team. He tries to slip it through to Coutinho who is making a run into the box from the left wing, but the pass is intercepted.
