    Time:90'
    • FC Barcelona
    • Getafe CF
    • 90+3 And that's it. Last kick of the game.
    • 90+2 Pique makes it six. Thiago breaks the offside trap and chests down an Alves cross to Pique, who rolls in into an empty net.
    • 90' Iniesta makes it five. Messi drops his shoulder this way and that before he is tackled by Escudero. The ricochet of the ball falls to Iniesta who fires home from close range. He has been the standout player.
    • 89' Messi heads a firm header well past the post from a Alves cross - that was a free header.
    • 87' The concession of that consolation means that Barca have not recorded a clean sheet now in three months.
    • 85' Barca look to pass themselves to the final whistle.
    • 84' That was a poor, poor defensive lapse from Alba. It was complacent and rightly punished.
    • 83' GOOOAL!! The substitute Vázquez capitalises on a loose back header to Valdes to poke the ball past the keeper to register a consolation. 4-1.
    • 80' Alves gives away a free-kick in the left channel and the ball is whipped into the box but Valdes comes to meet it with a firm punch. The hosts break but Tello overruns it.
    • 79' GOOOAL!! Messi runs at the Getafe defence and draws two defenders before slipping the ball to Tello. Messi darts forward for the return but Tello opens his body and tucks it inside the far post to make it 4-0 from just outside the box.
    • 78' Barcelona have scored in 41 consecutive La Liga games now, which is an all-time record. The last time they failed to score was January 2012 - a scoreless draw against Villarreal.
    • 77' This is the first time since 29 Nov 2011 - against Rayo - that Alexis, Messi and Villa have scored in same game.
    • 76' Puyol has pulled up injured and Mascherano comes on for him.
    • 75' With the Getafe defence tiring, the introduction of Tello is a smart choice – he is the quickest player at the club.
    • 74' Tello on for Alexis.
    • 73' Vázquez for Colunga, who has run hard but with little fruits to show for his toils.
    • 72' Valdes gets a touch for only the fourth or fifth time this afternoon and he picks out a great ball to Alves.
    • 71' Tello is limbering up on the touchline.
    • 70' Barrada is off and Sarabia is on in his stead.
    • 68' Penalty, surely? Alexis gets to a cross before Codina, who appears to punch the Chilean in the head but the referee allows the game to continue.
    • 66' Lopo has put in quite the shift out there – he again intervenes as Iniesta looks to flick the ball around the corner, but, with the attacks constant, it appears only a matter of time before Barca score again.
    • 65' Pedro León is a player of some quality, but, with his previous ties to Madrid, he receives the customary boos.
    • 64' Pedro León, the former Real Madrid player, is coming on. Gavilán off.
    • 62' Iniesta lifts a perfectly weighted ball into the run of Messi but his touch lets him down. This is constant now.
    • 61' Half an hour left for Messi to register his 300th goal of his career.
    • 60' Iniesta exchanges passes with Messi but his touch lets him down and Codina collects.
    • 58' GOOOAL!! Alba with a first-time pass into Villa, who takes a touch before slotting past Codina. Brilliantly simple again. 3-0.
    • 57' Alba gets to the by-line before cutting back to Messi, who takes a touch past the keeper but Torres desperately blocks on the line. The rebound falls to Villa but Torres blocks again.
    • 55' Messi comes away with the ball with about five or six hacks at his ankles. The hosts play it short before working into the channels.
    • 54' Getafe are about 15 yards deeper than the first-half and it is frustrating the hosts.
    • 52' Ten men behind the ball for the visitors such is the hosts' dominance.
    • 51' The corner is cleared.
    • 50' Colunga leads a rare foray forward but Puyol is out to meet him. The centre back finds Iniesta in the left channel and the midfield man evades two flailing challenges before Torres gets back at him to clear for a corner.
    • 48' Alves is in the thick of things right away. Having been found by Messi, the sometimes full-back lifts a ball into the box but the visitors clear.
    • 47' Adriano off for Alves
    • 46' We're back underway.
    • 45' And that's it from the first half.
    • 44' Barca play out the half with a bit of keep ball.
    • 43' Alexis gets wide and runs past his man into the box. He looks to pick out the late surge of Thiago but a combination of a Lopo block and a Codina save prevents a third before the break.
    • 42' Iniesta loses the ball in midfield but Alba is on the cover to head back to Valdes.
    • 41' Diego Castro is in the book for hauling back Alba.
    • 40' Villa finds Messi on the edge who in turn draws the defence before passing to Alexis – the Chilean looks for the return pass to either man but without a matching run Codina collects.
    • 38' Lopo is horribly late on Villa and quite rightly receives a yellow card.
    • 37' Messi evades four challenges from the Getafe defence before slipping a ball behind the full-back for Villa, who lifts the ball to Messi. He heads over on the stretch though.
    • 36' Luis García Plaza probably needs to look at his tactics – they are getting overrun in midfield and he needs to change the 4-4-2.
    • 35' Adriano evades the attentions of Escudero but his cross is cut out with Messi lurking. Barca waste the set-piece.
    • 34' Piqué rises highest to head a long throw into the box clear and the side from Madrid are really struggling to put any sort of pressure on the home defence.
    • 32' The pace of the game has slowed somewhat.
    • 31' Getafe need to get closer to Iniesta who is the fulcrum. This time he finds Alba, but Villa slightly rushes the finish from the centre from the former Valencia man and it is just the wrong side of the post.
    • 29' POST!! Alexis lifts the ball over the Getafe defence into the run of Messi who stabs the ball on to the post.
    • 28' Incessant pressure from the hosts.
    • 27' Messi holds off four players before laying off – outrageous close control.
    • 26' Messi with an almost incredible over-head kick but he just gets his timing wrong following a good run and cross from Villa.
    • 25' A cross for the right drops dangerously in the Barca box but Puyol ushers Colunga off the ball and Valdes collects. The ball is worked from the keeper to Iniesta who initiates another attack with a majestic touch. Messi holds the ball for a second too long and the visitors clear.
    • 24' Valdes comes to claim a cross and looks for Alexis in the right channel but his kick is errant and Codina collects.
    • 23' Adriano is late on Borja just inside the Barca half and the visiting defence have some respite.
    • 21' Messi exchanges passes with Villa on the edge but his teasing cross is cleared for a corner. The visitors clear the set-piece.
    • 19' Messi runs at Lopo but the veteran manages to get a leg in just on the edge of the box – great challenge.
    • 18' Song covers in behind Adriano but Diego Castro comes across and is a little over zealous in his attempts to retrieve the ball. He fouls the former Arsenal man.
    • 17' Getafe are very high up the pitch. Thus allowing the hosts ample space.
    • 16' Thiago looks for Alexis in behind after another passage of ten or so passes but the ball has a little too much purchase on it.
    • 15' The hosts are just moving the ball at pace and Iniesta has been imperious.
    • 14' GOOAL! Iniesta again finds space on the edge of the box and lifts the ball over the Getafe defence to Thiago, who sets the ball to Messi on the edge of the six-yard box and the Argentine drills ball into the bottom corner. Beautiful simplicity.
    • 13' Fair play to Getafe, they have started with two up front, but it leaves them exposed when the hosts break.
    • 11' Messi closes down the back four and gets his leg to an attempted pass out of defence but he can't get to the ricochet before Codina.
    • 10' The quick ball forward to Diego Castro has too much on it and the ball dribbles out of play.
    • 9' Barcelona’s passing is beyond crisp; while without the ball their hunger to retrieve it is insatiable – Getafe on the end of a reaction to the draw against Valencia.
    • 7' Getafe have lost four of their last five away from homes – so the omens aren’t good for the team from the Madrid.
    • 6' GOOOAL!! Iniesta takes out three Getafe defenders with a through-ball to Alexis who has come in off the wing. The Chilean remains composed to slip the ball past Codina with his second touch.
    • 5' Song puts in a pretty robust challenge and is hobbling.
    • 4' Getafe are sitting very deep and Barca sweep the ball from Adriano to Alba and back again through the midfield before Pique speeds the ball up through to Messi. The Argentine looks for Alexis but the ball is just behind the run.
    • 3' The hosts clear and Messi springs forward before looking for Villa running left of him but his ball has too much on it.
    • 2' First early break forward from the visitors but Puyol meets him with a sliding tackle. The visitors come again but Song hauls back Lacen to give away a free-kick.
    • 1' And we're off.
    • 10:55 Moments away from kick-off in Spain – this is Barca’s first midday kick-off since Christmas Day 1965.
    • 10:50 TEAMS: Valdés, Adriano, Piqué, Puyol, Alba, Thiago, Iniesta, Song, Villa, Messi and Alexis. Subs: Pinto, Alves, Mascherano, Busquets, Cesc, Pedro, Tello. /// Getafe: Codina, Alexis, Torres, Lopo, Lacen, Gavilán, Colunga, Escudero, Diego Castro, Barrada and Borja. Subs: F. Fernández, Pedro Leónm, Míchel, Á. Vázquez, Alcácer, P. Sarabia, A. Rivas.
    • 10:45 Full teams news to follow. But, in the meantime, why not read about Barca’s February malaise.
    • 10:40 Twelfth-placed Getafe are in the throes of a defensive crisis, though. Defender Rafa and goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya are both suspended while Juan Valera missed out due to a back problem.
    • 10:35 Barca are nine points clear at the top of La Liga but fatigue could play a large part in this fixture – a substantial number of the squad were out in Qatar in midweek for the international friendly against Uruguay. But, Xavi is the only Barcelona player who is unavailable for the meeting with Getafe due to an ankle problem.
    • 10:30 Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage from La Liga where Barcelona entertain Getafe at the Camp Nou.
