  • 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!

  • RED CARD FOR ALAVES! Jota has made his side’s fight for three points a lot more difficult, getting himself sent off for a second yellow card after raising his boot high and catching Pique high in the chest. It’s unfortunate for the midfielder, but it’s worthy of a booking. The hosts down to 10 men!
