Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +1 Thiago Alcântara enters the game and replaces Xavi.
90' Last throw of the dice from Barcelona. Xavi comes off for Thiago Alcantara.
88' How have Valencia not scored!? Cissokho takes advantage of a mistake by Pique to drive into the box and reverse a pass inside. Soldado directs a shot towards goal from 10 yards but Victor Valdes makes an outstanding save!! Valencia thought they had won it!
86' Jonas enters the game and replaces A. Guardado.
A very brave move from the Valencia coach. Jonas is an attacker, who will no doubt play up top with Soldado. Barcelona have been camped outside the opposition box for the last 10 minutes or so, so perhaps he sees this as a way to get his team up the park.
85' Last change of the match from Valencia. Andres Guardado is replaced by Jonas. Interesting change from Ernesto Valverde.
83' A Barcelona goal now would be cruel on Valencia, they have defended incredibly well throughout the match. They just need to keep it together for seven minutes or so.
81' Villa slips the ball out to the left and Pedro steps inside before lashing a left-footed strike towards the near post, but the attempt lacked power and Guaita manages to make the save.
79' As we approach the closing stages of the match, Valencia are moving deeper and deeper into their own half. This is playing into the hands of Barca, who are now dominating possession.
77' DAVID VILLA!!! If he is on form he scores that! Dani Alves makes a signature run down the right and curls a superb cross to the back post, and the former Valencia man looks to direct a left-footed shot to the opposite corner, but his attempt goes just wide!
76' A. Guardado gets yellow.
The game is so delicately poised at the moment. With a bit of belief, Los Che could snatch a win here.
