That was the opportunity for the winner! Marcelo clips an excellent cross into Ronaldo, who seems to have a free header, but he goes back across goal when he should have powered it home.

Did that come off the post? Villarreal for once are caught sleeping at the back, with Kroos' cross forcing Costa into a desperate clearance that actually looked to hit the post!

Casllas is forced into a good save! Moreno and Vietto link up really well in the final third again, with the latter getting a shot away, but the Real Madrid keeper makes the diving stop.

That should have hit the net! Asenjo comes off his line to make the catch, but spills it. The ball drops to Jese, who somehow manages to shoot wide of the near post with the goal gaping.

He lost his footing at the wrong moment! Varane misjudges a long ball forward, allowing Vietto in on goal, but the Villarreal forward fell over just as he was about to hit the shot!

Incredible save from Asenjo! Ronaldo looks for all the world to have found the net with a powerful header, but the Villarreal pulls off an exceptional stop to keep the score at 1-1!

Another big save from Asenjo! Ronaldo battles to get in behind Bailly down the left side, but the angle is tight and Asenjo comes out to smother the shot from the Ballon d'Or holder.

GOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 1 Villarreal 1 (64 mins - Gerard Moreno). The away side have an equaliser! Moreno and Vietto link up, and the latter lashes home a finish on the swivel turn.

Wow! Ronaldo gets in behind the Villarreal backline and squares for Bale, but the Welsh winger blasts his effort well over the bar. That was almost laughable from the former Spurs man.

Ronaldo comes close to adding a second! Bale plays the Real Madrid number seven through on goal, but Asenjo comes off his line to smother the winger's shot. Big stop from Asenjo.

GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 2 (51 - Cristiano Ronaldo) Villarreal 0. Asenjo makes his move earl and Ronaldo sends the ball into the opposite corner. Good penalty kick.

PENALTY KICK TO REAL MADRID! Bailly is all over Ronaldo when the cross comes into the box. Gomez points to the spot.

Ronaldo forces a good save out of Asenjo! Benzema comes forward on the break, and plays the ball out to the Real Madrid number seven, who shoots across goal. Asenjo makes the stop low down.

HALF TIME: Real Madrid 0-0 Villarreal. This has been a very even contest on the basis of the opening 45 minutes. Marcelino will be pleased with how his team has played so far.

Off the crossbar from Bale! The Welsh winger's cross into the Villarreal penalty area catches out Asenjo and bounces off the top of the goalkeeper's bar. There's no way he meant that.

That's the closest Real Madrid have come to an opener here! Varane rises highest from a corner kick, but his headers flashes past the post. Asenjo was rooted to the spot for that one!

So close to a Villarreal opener! Casillas is first called upon to make the close range save from Moreno, then Carvajal makes the clearing header off the line from Gomez's shot. Oooft!

So close to a crucial goal from Torres! The Atletico Madrid turns his marker and creates a yard of space for himself in the box, but he can only drag is shot wide of the far post. Great play.

That wasn't too far away! Garcia sees Rico off his line, with the Sevilla goalkeeper not entirely sure of his bearings, but fortunately for him the shot drifts wide of the target.

Excellent play from Torres! He takes it past three Sevilla defenders and uses his pace to get to the byline before squaring for Griezmann. But he can't get his shot away and the chance is gone.

Moya is forced into an excellent save! Arribas meets Banega's freekick delivery into the area, heading towards goal, but the Atletico Madrid keeper is on hand to make the stop low down.

HALF TIME: Sevilla 0-0 Atletico Madrid. That was a difficult 45 minutes for the Liga champions, who have been second best. Sevilla need to create more in front of goal though.

Sevilla hit the woodwork! The cross comes into the penalty box from Banega on the right hand side, with Iborra getting in between Godin and Moya, but he can only direct his shot on to the post.

Should that have been a penalty kick to Sevilla? Vitolo goes down under the challenge of an Atletico Madrid defender in the box, but the referee tells the attacker to get back to his feet.

FULL-TIME: Granada 1-3 Barcelona. Luis Suarez stars again as Barca close the gap at the top of La Liga to a single point.

ANOTHER CHANCE! Pedro drifts in behind the Granada backline and attempts to send a cute chip over Oier. He succeeds, but his effort lacks the power to reach the goal.

CHANCE! Neymar attempts an unorthodox bicycle kick in the penalty area which runs through to Messi at the back stick... He's only gone and scuffed it wide.

More whistles. Suarez is departing the field of play rather slowly. He's been excellent in this second period. Pedro joins the action.

70'

GOAL! Granada 1-3 Barca. What on earth is Suarez doing? The rejuvenated forward skips past Oier but instead of passing into the empty net, he passes to Messi for a simple tap-in. Not sure I've ever seen selflessness on that level.

GOAL! Granada 0-2 Barca. Fran Rico blasts past Bravo from 12 yards. Fine penalty. Maybe this one is not over.

PENALTY TO GRANADA! Marc Bartra puts in a ridiculously lazy challenge on Lass just inside the area and seems insulted when the referee points to the spot.

GOAL! Granada 0-2 Barcelona. Suarez plays a one-two with Rakitic and pokes the return ball under Oier and over the line.

MASSIVE CHANCE! The ball drops at the feet of Messi inside the six-yard box. Oier flings his limbs at the Argentine and is relieved to see the shot bounce off his leg and away from harm.

CHANCE! Marquez strolls onto the ball before, suddenly, swinging a left boot and watching his shot fly towards the far corner. Claudio Bravo is alert to turn it behind. Cracking effort.

37'

CHANCE! Great link-up play between Rakitic and Messi opens a chance for the latter. The Argentine sends a super volley just over.

CHANCE! Marquez is fuming! The ball is perfectly placed into his path near the area, but the referee gets in his way. The Chilean blazes his awkward shot over the crossbar.

27'

CHANCE! Almost an instant response from Granada. The ball falls invitingly to Lass about 10 yards from goal and he crashes an effort narrowly over.

GOAL! Granada 0-1 Barca. Suarez scuffs a cross along the six-yard box which Juan Cala can only divert into the path of Rakitic, who can't miss.

CHANCE! The ball spirals through the Granada sky towards Marquez, who sends an audacious header towards goal. Over. Just.

YELLOW! Luis Suarez rolls his opponent and sends the limpest arm into his opponent. The reaction is ridiculous and earns the Uruguayan a booking.
