Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 FULL-TIME: BARCELONA 4-1 CELTA VIGO
90' +1 Two minutes added on here. Dembele gets the ball at the edge of the area, jinks from one way to the other about eight times, and carries it 30 yards backwards in the process.
90' Mendez' corner from the right is straight down Ter Stegen's throat, and he makes an easy catch.
88' Busquets gets yellow.
Busquets gets a yellow card for dangling a leg and tripping Mendez by the right corner of the penalty area. Made absolutely no attempt to go for the ball. Couldn't be bothered. Trademark.
87' Barca were already looking good for the points they needed to go back to the top of the table, but every goal matters. If it stays at 4-1, they'll be ahead of Madrid by just two goals.
85' Busquets has scored a goal for Barcelona!
GOAL! 4-1 Barca, an unexpected banger from Busquets! Dembele holds the ball up on the left before crossing towards the back post. The cross is headed away by Junca but only as far as Busquets at the edge of the area, and the midfielder takes a touch before slapping it into the bottom-left corner.
83' Fernandez gets in behind courtesy of being about two yards offside, but nevertheless he makes the questionable decision of running slowly towards Ter Stegen and then gently kicking the ball at him. Underwhelming.
82' Barca's Suarez steps to the right and fires towards the bottom-left corner from range, but he doesn't catch the shot right and drags it wide.
81' G. Fernández enters the game and replaces Pape Diop.
Final change for Celta, as the influential Cheikh is replaced by Fernandez.
Celta's Suarez makes a good run through the centre of midfield, but his attempted threaded pass towards Mendez is cut out by Umtiti.
79' Mallo makes a good sliding challenge to prevent Firpo getting in down the left, but then collapses in pain immediately afterwards. He got a knock to the ankle as he made the tackle, but he's fine to carry on after a moment.
