Deportivo Alavés vs Barcelona Highlights

Deportivo Alavés vs Barcelona Live Score


90' + 4' Messi has a crack from outside the penalty area but again Lejeune manages to throw himself in front of the effort - putting it wide for a corner. Barcelona are throwing everything at their opponents, but heroic defending keeps this match level!
90' + 3' Barcelona have only won three of their last seven trips to Basque Country in LaLiga (D3 L1), after winning their previous seven in the competition.
90' + 1' The fourth official indicates five minutes will be added to the end of the 90 for stoppages.
89' Messi hits the byline and chips it back across the face of goal for Pique to head on-target, but Marin throws himself at the ball to block the attempt!
88' Messi takes the free-kick short to Dest - who blasts a shot through the bodies but is unable to beat Pacheco, who parries it clear amazingly.
Rubén Duarte
Yellow Card
Deportivo Alavés
87' Duarte is shown a yellow card for a foul on Trincao just outside Pacheco’s area on the right.
86' Trincao chips a pass over the top of the defence for Messi, who thunders a volley past Pacheco; knowing the whole time that it wouldn’t count anyway as the Barcelona captain was clearly offside.
84' Barcelona have 10 men in their opponent’s half - including Pique leading the line - as they search for the lead. Time is running out for the Blaugrana, who would finish the day 12th with a draw.

82' Pedri finds Roberto open on the right, but the full-back’s curling cross is met by a strong Pacheco punch. The play is then brought to a halt for offside in the build-up, which sends Koeman into a rage on the touchline. It was certainly a tight decision. 
80' Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored 10 goals in his nine LaLiga games against Alavés and scored two goals and provided an assist on his last trip at Mendizorrotza in the competition, last July.
M. Braithwaite
Ansu Fati
78' Koeman continues to roll the dice, replacing Fati with Braithwaite in an attempt to steal a late winner.
76' Alaves have been allowing Barcelona to ease forward to the 18-yard box, where they are packing the space and making it very difficult for their opponents to play a pass through on-goal. It’s a bit risky from the hosts - but with a man less, it’s to be expected.
74' Pedri supplies Fati with a fantastic ball, which bobbles up - allowing the winger to hit a volley, which is immediately blocked by a desperate Alaves defender. Barcelona are pouring on the pressure!
Adrián Marín
Deportivo Alavés
72' A change in midfield sees Pina replaced by Marin with less than 20 minutes left in the game.
Manu García
Luis Rioja
Deportivo Alavés
72' Rioja’s goal has Alaves in position to earn a point, but his match is over as he’s replaced by Garcia.
71' Griezmann scores again but it’s immediately flagged for offside, as Trincao was unable to hold his run prior to De Jong’s incisive pass. It’s more beautiful play from Barcelona, but the referee’s decision appears to be the correct one. 
S. Dest
Jordi Alba
69' Koeman looks to freshen up his side with 20 minutes to go, as Alba is taken off and replaced by Dest. 
67' Pedri supplies Trincao with a fantastic ball into the penalty area, cutting through the Alaves defence on it’s way. The winger is half a step too late to react though, which allows Pacheco to grab it with both hands. 
65' MESSI IS STOPPED BY A SENSATIONAL PACHECO STOP! The Barcelona captain is played into the penalty area by Roberto, before taking a touch and shaping a left-footed shot to the far post - forcing the goalkeeper into a phenomenal diving save!

63' BARCELONA GET THEMSELVES LEVEL! Fati makes a challenge on the loose ball outside the penalty area and it breaks kindly for Griezmann, who latches onto it inside the 18 and chips it over Pacheco! 1-1!

62' Yellow 2nd/RC José Ignacio Peleteiro Ramallo
60' It’s better suited for a right-footed player, but Messi takes it anyways. He tries for goal but gets it all wrong, skewing it high.
59' Fati on the turn just outside the 18-yard box is taken down by Battaglia - giving Barcelona another free-kick to trouble the keeper from the left.
Tomás Tavares
Edgar Méndez
Deportivo Alavés
58' The third change of the match for the hosts is a straight swap on the wing, as Tavares is in for Mendez. 
Deportivo Alavés
57' Deyverson has been very good in his limited touches today, sparking a couple of dangerous counter-attacks. He’s taken off before the hour though, as Joselu comes on to replace him.
54' Barcelona have conceded the first goal of the game in three LaLiga games this season and are winless in all those matches (D1 L2).
52' Fati nutmegs a defender on the byline and shifts it to Griezmann, but the striker is unable to muster a shot towards goal from just outside the six-yard box with defenders closing the space! It’s absolutely superb from the young Spain international - who turns 18 today!
50' Griezmann attempts to put it around Lejeune and chase down the ball, but the centre-back uses his body well to shield possession before using his goalkeeper as an outlet. Once again, the striker hasn’t really settled into the match or linked up well with his team-mates, though he could be the key to Barcelona’s success should he find his shooting boots.
48' Koeman’s displeasure with his side’s first-half is on full display, as the coach makes three changes as well as a tactical alteration at the half. The removal of Lenglet at centre-back seemingly forces De Jong to drop back further to cover, while Pjanic operates as the forward-minded midfielder.
46' Alaves get the match restarted from the kick-off! 
C. Lenglet
46' The third switch is an interesting one, as winger Pedri is on for Lenglet - who was playing in defence. 
O. Dembélé
46' Dembele is replaced by Trincao on the wing as Koeman looks to make wholesale changes. 
M. Pjanić
46' A substitution at half-time for Barcelona sees a change in midfield. Busquets is replaced by Pjanic.

45' + 1' The fourth official indicates two minutes will be added for stoppages.
45' Fati squares it for Messi inside the penalty area, but the left-footed effort is no trouble for Pacheco.
C. Lenglet
Yellow Card
44' The counter continues, just until Lenglet as Rioja’s jersey is pulled by the centre-back. It’s a free-kick for the hosts, while the Barcelona player receives a yellow card.
Yellow Card
44' Busquets is booked for a sliding challenge in midfield, in a failed attempt to prevent a counter-attack.
43' Messi hits it low again, but the wall does it’s job and deflects it out for a corner.
42' Busquets is caught by the raised leg of Lejeune and wins his side a free-kick right on Alaves’ 18-yard box. Can Messi make this one count?
Martín Aguirregabiria
Ximo Navarro
Deportivo Alavés
41' Alaves are forced into a change four minutes from half-time, as Navarro is unable to run off an earlier injury. Aguirregabiria is his replacement. 
L. Messi
Yellow Card
39' Messi is booked for a cynical foul after failing to get the referee to award him a free-kick for various niggling fouls during Barca’s last attack.
37' Messi drives towards the penalty area and attempts to take three defenders out of play with a delightful left-footed pass for Fati, but the defensive wall holds firm - booting it downfield and forcing Barcelona to come again from defence.
35' Roberto curls a fantastic cross into the penalty area for De Jong, who puts his header well over the bar. There looked to be a push from the defender during the attempted shot - but the referee fails to acknowledge the Barcelona claims.
33' The goalkeeper is left with a blank look on his face as Barcelona take the kick-off and immediately pour forward on the front-foot looking for an equaliser. It’s incredibly sloppy from the visitors, who must now dig themselves out of a hole while allowing their opponents to sit back further and defend the lead.

31' ALAVES TAKE THE LEAD AFTER A MESS IN BARCELONA’S DEFENCE! Rioja bursts forward on a counter-attack, but loses possession just outside the 18-yard box to Pique. The defender passes it back to Neto and looks for the pass back, but the keeper’s first touch is poor - allowing Rioja to slip in, take possession back and tuck it away! 1-0 to the hosts!

28' Mendez buys his side some time, winning a free-kick on the right-hand side after allowing Alba to nip at his heels.
26' Another Alaves corner comes to nothing as once again the set-piece fails to beat Griezmann at the near post.
24' CLEARED OFF THE LINE! It’s drilled low and hard by Messi but he finds Laguardia, who was stationed at the far post. Alaves put two defenders on the goal-line during the free-kick, and the strategy has paid dividends!
Yellow Card
Deportivo Alavés
22' Deyverson steps into Messi - sending the Barcelona captain to the floor just outside the 18-yard box. It's a yellow card for the Alaves striker while giving Barcelona a chance to trouble Pacheco.  
19' Griezmann wastes an opportunity from inside the penalty area after a delightful one-two with Fati; a move that was started by a brilliant Messi nutmeg.

17' WHAT A CHANCE FOR ALAVES! It’s sensational football from the hosts as Deyverson sends his side forward with a sweeping first-touch pass for Rioja. The winger drives towards the penalty area and plays a square pass inside the 18-yard box for Mendez - but the ensuing strike is easily parried and saved by Neto.
Jota Peleteiro
Yellow Card
Deportivo Alavés
15' Jota tugs Griezmann’s jersey back inside the centre-circle and receives the first yellow card of the match.
12' WHAT A CHANCE! A beautiful pass from Lenglet releases Fati, who gets past Navarro on the left flank, before sending his curling effort just wide of the far post!

9' Alaves take their first corner of the match, but it’s taken flat and fails to beat Griezmann - who is stationed at the near post.
7' Griezmann chips it up for Messi on the edge of the 18, who then volleys it over the top of the defence for Fati - though Pacheco scrambles off his line to catch it.
5' Messi takes off and attempts a reverse pass to Griezmann, but Laguardia’s step wins the ball back cleanly.
3' As kick-off takes place at the Mendizorroza, Alaves look to have gone with two strikers up-top, as Rioja joins Deyverson - leaving Mendez and Duarte on the flanks.
1' Barcelona get the match underway from the kick-off!
