Commentary

Minute   Description
90' We are into the first of two added minutes.
89' A promise piece of attacking play from Sociedad comes to an end when Vela scoops a ball through to nobody, and out of play. Montanier's side have put up a spirited fight, but have been outclassed in every department. They will be pleased to get this fixture out of the way, you feel.
88' This game looks to have run its course. I hope you lot all put good money on your 5-1 predictions.
86' Still no hat-trick for Messi though. It looks like Iniesta was fouled as he exchanged passes with Alves inside the area, but as the ball breaks Messi clips his shot wide. Replays show he was offside however, so he probably meant it.
85' What a perfect ending to this game. Villa showed so much emotion in celebrating that fifth goal. What an asset he will prove to be this season.
84' David Villa has scored a goal for Barcelona! Assist by Iniesta.
David Villa gets yellow.
GGOOAALL BARCA! David Villa, we have missed you. That is the goal of the night too. Iniesta jinks his way to the byeline, and cuts the ball back for the returning striker to slot an exquisite finish home. How he enjoyed that one. 5-1 Barca.
83' Ansotegi gets yellow.
82' But he will keep trying, of course. Messi beats two men, and one of them, Ansotegui, reacts by pulling him back. Obvious booking for the centre-back.
81' Maybe the hat-trick isn't going to come. Jordi Alba has has a great game out on the left, and his cross is slammed towards goal by the no.10. Bravo is down smartly to make the save.
78' The new Barca coach is prowling the touchline, now with arms behind his back. His fierce complexion is going to become a famous sight before too long, you feel.
