Minute   Description

And there is the final whistle! This one has finished Barcelona 3-2 Spartak Moscow.
90' +2 Here we go! Corner to Spartak in the dying seconds...
90' +1 The referee signals for three minutes of added time at Camp Nou.
90' Barca look content to keep hold of the ball and wind the clock down in these last few minutes, with Spartak struggling to get a hold of the ball.
88' Messi drives through the Spartak defence in search of his hat-trick goal but loses possession on the edge of the box. Villa looks to take the ball on, but controls it with his arm, and is penalised by the referee.
87' One more goal will take Barcelona to 800 in UEFA competitions. They've got two minutes plus stoppage time to get it tonight.
85' Unai Emery's side look bereft of ideas as this game edges towards it conclusion, and Barcelona are well on top. The visitors must be exhausted having hassled and harried Tito Vilanova's side all over the pitch.
84' In Group G's other game tonight Celtic's match against Benfica remains 0-0.
83' A. Dzyuba enters the game and replaces Ari.
PEDRO STROKES A SHOT WIDE!! Alexis doesn't look injured to me!! The Chile international was a doubt tonight due to a thigh injury, but since coming on as a sub he's looked full of energy and purpose. After assisting Messi's header, he nearly turns provider once more, this time for Pedro. After receiving the ball on the right-hand side of the area Pedro sends a curling effort towards the bottom left-hand corner that flies just wide of the post.
81' Vilanova's side have shown real character to come back into this match after going 2-1 down to that Romulo goal on the hour mark, and they now lead 3-2 courtesy of a brace of Messi finishes.
