Messi strikes late to down Atleti as Barca return to the top of LaLiga

Atlético Madrid vs Barcelona Live Score




90' + 4' FULL-TIME: ATLETICO MADRID 0-1 BARCELONA. 



86' MESSI MAKES THE DIFFERENCE! It simply had to be the Barcelona captain! He plays a neat one-two pass with Suarez around the edge of the penalty area and dispatches a shot with his left foot that beats Oblak at the bottom left corner! 1-0 Barcelona!




81' Atletico Madrid have drawn seven of their opening 14 LaLiga games this season, while they’ve never previously drawn eight of their first 15 matches in a single season in the top flight.
79' Play is stopped as Pique is down holding his leg following a studs-up challenge by Vitolo. The centre-back attempts to get up and carry on, but he’s back down in a heap in an instant. Vitolo escapes a second booking, but the defender looks like he wont be able to carry on.
75' Trippier launches it long for Morata, but the striker is unable to turn his half-volley goalwards in the presence of Pique who closed down the angle.
66' Joao Felix is withdrawn with 24 minutes remaining - as Vitolo is given a chance to make his mark.
65' Lenglet is booked for tugging back Morata, who had just escaped the centre-back’s reaches.
62' Messi on the edge of the penalty area cracks a shot but he’s blocked by a well-placed defender. The follow-up effort from Firpo is also closed down - as Atleti escape unscathed.
60' Messi gets away from the presence of Morata, before hitting a shot at Oblak that requires the goalkeeper to palm it down before grabbing it at the second time of asking.
58' Joao Felix is bundled over by Lenglet, who commits to the challenge in order to give himself time to get back into position. 
48' Firpo finds Griezmann just outside the penalty area and the former Atleti striker sweeps a shot towards goal for Oblak to save with confidence.
46' Barcelona get the match restarted from the kick-off!

45' HALF-TIME: ATLETICO MADRID 0-0 BARCELONA. 


41' TER STEGEN MAKES AN ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING STOP! An Atletico Madrid corner is taken to the outside of the six-yard box, where Morata attacks it freely with a terrific downwards header from point-blank range. Ter Stegen immediately stoops to the ground and uses his right arm to scoop away the effort - putting it far from his goal in the process.


39' Artur takes a Barcelona corner, but he puts the cross right into Oblak’s range, where he gathers with sure hands.
37' SUAREZ SENDS IT WIDE! Griezmann leads the Uruguay international to just outside the Atleti penalty area with a great pass, but the Barcelona number nine’s attempt with the outside of his boot just misses the net!
27' Barcelona are seemingly finding their feet as Rakitic forces a great save out of Oblak following a Messi assist and Suarez dummy - but despite not capitalising, they maintain possession and build again. 
25' Atlético Madrid last won against Barcelona in LaLiga in February 2010 (2-1) under Quique Sanchez Flores, with Pep Guardiola in charge of the Catalan side that day.
23' Herrera receives a pass from Joao Felix and opens his body up for a far-post curler from inside the penalty area, but he narrowly misses his target as Barcelona are let off the hook!
20' The free-kick is taken to the far post where it’s cleared, but Joao Felix puts it back into the box from the other flank, finding a wide-open Hermoso. The centre-back is again in a perfect position to open the scoring, hit his hit with the inside of his right foot is saved by the inside of Ter Stegen’s leg! It should really be 1-0!


18' Firpo is once again caught in a bind as Correa receives a pass inches outside the penalty area and looks to use his physicality to back into the box - but the left-back drags him to the pitch. Atleti have a free-kick in a great position. The Barcelona player is also booked for the infringement. 
17' FANTASTIC DELIVERY! The England right-back swings the free-kick into the penalty area for Felipe to attack. It’s hit with tremendous accuracy, but the centre-back nods it just over for a goal-kick - though replays suggest that it should have been a corner after taking a deflection.
8' Thomas is booked early in the proceedings for a poor tackle in midfield. He’s always likely to pick up a card - though he’ll now be under scrutiny for the rest of the match.
7' OFF THE INSIDE OF THE POST! Atletico Madrid assault the Barcelona penalty area following a far-post cross, and it’s kept alive inside the area by Hermoso despite an attempted clearance by Firpo. The centre-back takes the Barcelona defender on and flashes a shot across the net from a tight angle - only to be denied by the woodwork!
5' Griezmann has had his first few touches of the match and was received with boos and whistles as he returns to the club where he spent five years - scoring 133 times in 257 matches in all competitions.
3' Lenglet gives the ball back to Morata following an awkward volleyed pass in midfield, but the defender’s blushes are spared when the referee awards Barcelona a free-kick for handball.
1' Atleti get the match underway from the kick-off!
