90′ +2
AND IT'S ALL OVER! Barcelona have won by six goals to nil in the Camp Nou tonight, a superb performance from the Catalan side and they go back to the top of the table. Samuel Eto'o with four of the goals, Henry and Gudjohnsen with the other two and the Blaugrana really do look in brilliant form at the moment, simply splendid.....
 
90′ +1
Henry offside on the left wing and Valladolid have the ball, but as had been the story of the match, they give it away too easily....

Two minutes added on here and it looks like staying this way.....

83′
Goitom wastes another pass upfront and Barcelona looking for seven.....
 
83′
Goal Thierry Henry
 
82′
AND IT'S SIX! AT LAST HENRY HAS HIS GOAL! Great play on the edge of the box as Hleb links up with Messi and gets the ball back inside the box, and he unselfishly squares it for Henry to tap in from 3 yards out.....
 
81′
Another chance for Henry as Messi plays him through but the Frenchman can't beat Asenjo who makes a good save down to his left.....
 
80′
Alves finally tackles Sesma, for the first time in the evening maybe, and Barcelona have it with Toure, who finds Hleb on the right wing.....Now Messi driving forward and sets up HENRY......But his shot/cross just goes wide of the far post with Keita inches away....

Lovely ball for Sesma on the left wing and he crosses but the first touch from Vivar Dorado is just a bit too far in front of him and Pique clears.....
 
77′
Guardiola throws his hands in the air and puffs his cheeks for some reason, maybe he wants more goals......Barcelona only the other hand seem to be content with this scoreline....

75′
IT IS ALVES! And he drills it in but it is just wide of the left post of Asenjo, don't think he would have got that it if it was a few yards to the left.....
 
75′
Substitution Samuel Eto'o Aliaksandr Hleb
 
73′
Henry finds Eto'o and Messi is dragged down by Vivar Dorado, who gets a yellow card for the tackle, about 35 yards out straight infront of goal, maybe Alves will fancy this....but first Eto'o comes off to a standing ovation and Aliaksandr Hleb comes on....
 
73′
Yellow Card Vivar Dorado
 
73′
Sesma darts down the left wing but his cross comes back off him and it's a goal-kick, he has put in a good spell this evening but with no reward....

With that Gudjohnsen goes off for Seydou Keita, really good performance from the blond haired striker....

The big question now is whether, like in previous games, Barcelona will slow down after half-time or if they will really go for it and continue to rip Valladolid apart.....
 
45′
Barcelona are simply in rampant form as of late and that's the whistle......Valladolid will be glad to get in and sit down, they have been torn apart by Messi and Eto'o and this game is over already.....4-0 Barcelona at the half....
 
44′
Goal Samuel Eto'o

13′
Valladolid can't concede another soon or else this game is over, if it's not already, but they just can't get the ball at all....
 
11′
AND IT'S 1-0! Yet again Barcelona score early! The move started with Toure, he found Alves on the right wing and he played a lovely ball behind the defence for Eto'o to get onto and cutback onto his left foot and blast past Asenjo! Perfect start for Barça!

Barcelona of course without Andrés Iniesta in the midfield tonight, who is out for a month and a half, and his replacement Gudjohnsen finds space in the box and is found by Xavi, only to head over from the edge of the six-yard box....Half chance there.....
