Full-time: Barcelona 4-2 Eibar
- BAR - EIB
- MLG - RMA
WHAT A GOAL! Barcelona 4-2 Eibar (Messi) Messi takes the ball on halfway, motors forward, ducks inside his man, skirts around three more, and drives a low shot to Yoel's right. For most, that's the best goal they've ever scored; for Messi, it's not even top 30.
SUAREZ MISSES ANOTHER! Sent clear through the middle yet again, he has so much time, but looks to slot to Yoel's left - it's a little lackadaisical, really - but another fine save.
FULL TIME: Malaga 0-2 Real Madrid.
REAL MADRID ARE THE 2016/17 LA LIGA CHAMPIONS!
OFF THE CROSSBAR! Castro found space inside the Real Madrid penalty area, but Navas made the save to touch the strike on to the crossbar. Inches away from a Malaga goal!
KAMENI SAVE! The Malaga goalkeeper has made a number of stops this evening and this time he denies Modric from close range. He always shows up for the big games against the big teams!
Enrich is off, and Alex Galvez is on.
GOAL! Barcelona 3-2 Eibar (Messi pen) Messi wallops his kick again, again to the keeper's left, and again he gets a touch, but this time it's closer to the corner and Yoel can't keep it out.
ANOTHER PENALTY TO BARCA! AND A RED CARD! Neymar, who's been great in the second half, isolates Capa, goes outside him, allows the slide tackle to flatten him, and then watches the ref produce a second yellow card.
GOAL! Barcelona 2-2 Eibar (Suarez) Barca win a corner down the left and it's hit perfectly flat and hard to the near post. So Alcacer flicks on and Suarez poaches it home at the back post.
One more Real Madrid change and it's Morata who comes on for Benzema. We've seen that a few times this season.
Aclacer is on for Rakitic.
Duda comes on for the final 17 minutes of this match. He could be off in the summer as well!
By the way, Pedro Leon is on for Pena.
OH, WHAT A SAVE! Messi absolutely leathers his kick, just left of centre, but Yoel dives the right way and deflects the ball over the bar!
PENALTY FOR BARCA! WHAT ON EARTH! Alba cuts inside, falls over with no one near him, and the ref points to the spot!
Here's a Malaga change, with Sandro coming off for the home side to be replaced by Charles.
It's all Barca now, and Messi picks a pass through to Neymar who comes inside Arbilla, opening up the angle to go back across Yoel, only to drill wide! "You've gotta hit the target if you want to score goals," says Gerry Armstrong, sagely.
And the second change from Zidane sees Kovacic coming on for Casemiro, who will rest up for the Champions League final.
Here comes a couple of changes from Real Madrid, with Isco coming off to be replaced by James.
WHAT A GOAL! Barcelona 0-2 Eibar (Inui) Kike does well down the right and clips back a cross that Enrich moves on to Inui. The ball bounces once, twice, and then he spanks a fantastic shot in off the bar! Another brilliant finish!
Malaga make their first chance of the match and it's Castro who comes on to replace Keko.
The Malaga players are still protesting the second goal. Kameni was also booked.
GOD SAVE! Not for the first time, Navas makes a good save to deny Malaga. This time it was Camacho who headed towards goal, but he was kept out by the Costa Rican keeper.
WHAT ANOTHER MISS! Iniesta sends Suarez through the middle and he should just stick it away, but instead squares to Messi, who comes inside onto his right foot, taking the ball too close to keeper and defender before tapping wide! Oh I say!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Malaga 0 Real Madrid 2 (55 mins - Karim Benzema). There's the second goal and that could be the biggest goal of the season! Kameni made the save to deny Ramos' initial attempt, but Benzema was on hand to finish from close range.
Excellent from Neymar, skirting around the left and cutting back for Iniesta, who donkey-kicks across goal. He's not scored this season, and he still hasn't - Yoel pushes his shot away with hands strong enough to prevent Suarez knocking home the rebound.
IS RONALDO HURT? The Real Madrid number seven has hit the ground after a tackle and looks to be in a lot of pain. This is a real worry. He's not getting up. Might he have to come off?
SHOT FROM RECIO! The Malaga player got around Ramos with ease and sent a shot away on goal, but Navas got down easily to make the save and keep Real Madrid ahead.
Inui works some space down the left and skins Rakitic before nipping along the by-line and going for goal. But Ter Stegen protects his near post well, conceding a corner which comes to nowt.
Off we go! Barca bring on Andre Gomes for Sergi Roberto, and are playing three at the back.
The second half is under way! Real Madrid have a 1-0 lead over Malaga.
Half-time: Barcelona 0-1 Eibar
THAT IS ONE OF THE BEST MISSES I'VE EVER SEEN! Inui cuts inside onto his right foot and curls a shot towards the far corner. Ter Stegen gets down to it, but can only palm the ball back into play, directly to the feet of Pena! somehow, from three yards, he sidefoots wide! It's amazing!
HALF TIME: Malaga 0-1 Real Madrid. Ronaldo's goal is the difference between the two teams at the break, but the home side have had their chances. They are creating problems.
GETTING CLOSER! The cross was slung into the Real Madrid box from the left wing, with Keko climbing highest, but his header loops over Navas' goal. That was close to an equaliser!
JUST WIDE OF THE POST! That was very close to being an equaliser for Malaga, with Keko flicking on a shot from Sandro. Navas wasn't anywhere near it, but it flashed wide of the target.
SUAREZ MISSES AGAIN! Sent bounding through the middle, he shoots low, but Yoel guesses correctly and goes down to his right, getting just enough on the ball to send it behind.
Good run from Roberto, outside Messi and round the side. He then clips back for Rakitic, who meets the ball on the half-volley, but can't get it wide enough of Yoel.
BRILLIANT SAVE! How did that stay out? Benzema's low cross found Ronaldo, who cut inside and hit a left footed strike towards goal, but Kameni pulled off an astounding stop to deny him.
Capa is foxed by Iniesta's clever first touch, so trips him and is booked.
WHAT A SAVE! Sandro struck an exceptional freekick from about 25 yards towards goal, but Navas was equal to it, throwing himself across goal to make the save to keep Malaga out.
Wonderful from Iniesta, beating two men and finding Alba down the left. His cut-back is turned in by Suarez, but it turns out that Alba went just too soon. Good decision from the linesman.
FLASHES ACROSS GOAL! That was a tight angle for Benzema, but his strike on the bounce flashes across the face of goal, taking a deflection off the thigh of an opposition defender.
SANDRO SHOT! The former Barcelona man gets away and drives into the Real Madrid penalty area, but Navas makes the save at the near post to keep Real Madrid a goal to the good.
WHAT A MISS! Arbilla's lax backpass sends Suarez through the middle, and he draws the keeper. Really, he could do anything, but opts for a difficult finish, using the outside of his right boot, and sending the ball past the post! What was he thinking?!
GOAL! Barcelona 0-1 Eibar (Inui) What a finish this is! Dani Garcia'zs long, raking cross from the right finds Inui on the far side of the box - Sergi Roberto is all over the show - and he caresses a half-volley into the roof of the net via the underside of the bar.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Malaga 0 Real Madrid 1 (2 mins - Cristiano Ronaldo). What a start for Real Madrid! They have the lead after just a couple of minutes! Ronaldo was released in behind by Isco, rounds Kameni in the Malaga goal and finishes into the empty net.
Off we go!
The first half is under way! It's Malaga against Real Madrid.
