Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Graham Hunter, Camp Nou: The name adorning all the newspapers will be Lionel Messi, again, because his two goals in nine second-half minutes rescued Barcelona from a home defeat. But it was Tello, the young winger who provided a goal and an assist, who dragged the home team back into this. Kudos to Unai Emery and his men for a valiant display, particularly Ari and Emmanuel Emenike, but they have been denied what would have been a fantastic three points.

    Marek Suchý produces a brilliant block to keep Spartak on level terms.

The Czech Republic defender has other ideas, though, throwing himself across the turf to smother the danger.

    72
    Messi (Barcelona) scores!
    Scorer of the opening goal, Tello lays on Barcelona's equaliser. The 21-year-old retrieves an overhit cross at the back post, skips past the challenge of Aiden McGeady and cuts the ball back for Lionel Messi to tap in from close range. Can Spartak hold on for a point?

    Ari leads the Spartak charge, running purposefully at the Barcelona defence. Rather than shoot himself, the striker tees up compatriot Romulo, but the Brazilian international's weak shot is easily fielded by Víctor Valdés.
  • 54
    Romulo (Spartak Moskva) has an effort on goal.
  • 51
    Daniel Alves (Barcelona) is flagged for offside.
    Javier Mascherano finds Daniel Alves with a precise diagonal pass. The full-back, marginally offside, brings down the ball superbly and rifles it beyond Andriy Dykan. Barcelona's joy is cut short.
