Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Cadiz are next in action in LaLiga on December 14 on the road against Celta Vigo. Barcelona play in the Champions League during the week at home to Juventus.
Cadiz secure their first win over Barcelona since 1991 to move above Sevilla into fifth place in LaLiga. The home side took the lead in the first half through Alvaro Gimenez after a mistake from Oscar Mingueza. An own goal from Pedro Alcala brought Barca level as he deflected Jordi Alba's cross into the net. However, another error from the Catalan club allowed Alvaro Negredo to pounce as Clement Lenglet and Marc-Ander ter Stegen fluffed their attempted clearances. Ronald Koeman's men drop further off the pace and are now 12 points behind Atletico Madrid at the topf the table.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: CADIZ 2-1 BARCELONA
90' + 6' Cadiz clear the danger from Messi's cross before the referee ends the game.
90' + 5' Fali acts at the back again for the home side. He clears away from De Jong in the right-inside channel. Barca have a corner though.
90' + 5' De Jong lifts a cross into the box that is cleared by Fali. The home side are seconds away from a famous win.
90' + 4' BLOCK! Messi lines up the strike from the free-kick, but he hammers his effort straight into a crowd of yellow shirts. Cadiz clear the danger and ease the pressure for now.
90' + 3' Messi goes down under pressure from Fernandez on the edge of the box. Barca win a free-kick in a very dangerous position.
90' + 2' Cadiz are on course for their first win over Barcelona in 29 years. Can they hold out in stoppage time?
90' + 1' OVER! Negredo has room to run in the final third, but not the pace to get away from Alba. He shoots from distance after fending off a challenge, but sends his attempt well over the bar.
90' There will be five minutes of added time.
89' STOP! Griezmann is the latest player to be denied by Ledesma. The Frenchman bursts into the left-inside channel and hammers a strike at goal, but the Cadiz keeper turns it behind.
88' Trincao has a dart at Adekanye down the right flank, but the winger holds firm. He blocks the cross back onto the legs of the midfielder and earns Cadiz a goal-kick.
Jordi Alba
Yellow Card
86' Alba brings down Negredo with a hard challenge in the build-up on the counter and goes into the book.
86' WIDE! Alejo releases Adekanye in the final third through on goal on the counter. He bursts into the box, but pulls his left-footed strike wide of the right post.
86' WHAT A SAVE! Messi sees his strike from distance blocked into the path of Pjanic in the box. The midfielder gathers and only has Ledesma to beat from close range, but the keeper spreads himself to make an important block.
84' SAVE! Fali fails to clear his lines from a Dembele cross into the box. Messi pounces on the loose ball and combines with Griezmann. The Argentine takes over the attack and shoots on the turn, but his effort is saved by Ledesma.
82' CHANCE! Alejo leads a break through the middle of the Barca defence and plays a one-two with Negredo. He fires his strike hard and low towards goal from the right-inside channel, but Ter Stegen makes an important stop.
Alejo
Jairo Izquierdo
81' Alejo comes on to the field to replace Izquierdo in the Cadiz midfield.

A. Fernández
J. Jønsson

76' Cadiz are working extremely hard at the back, but Messi is beginning to ramp up the pressure.
74' SAVE! Messi skips away from two challenges before firing at goal on his left foot. Ledesma watches it all the way and is able to make the stop.
73' DEST HAS TO SCORE! Busquets plays a perfect pass through the Cadiz defence for the full-back. He takes a good first touch before striking at goal n his left foot, but he places his effort wide of the left post with only Ledesma to beat.
70' Barcelona need to regain their composure. Two costly mistakes have left them in a position of chasing the game. They're not clicking in LaLiga at the moment, especially on the road.
68' Carcelen tries to release Izquierdo down the right flank, but the winger moves a fraction too early and is caught offside.
67' VAR! VAR checks the ball striking Bodiger in the wall. It does hit his arm, but he's protecting his face as he jumps. Therefore, no penalty is awarded to the visitors.
66' OVER! Messi lines up a strike from 25 yards from the free-kick, but his effort clips off the top of the wall and travels over the bar.
65' Braithwaite is brought down by Alcala in the final third, handing Barca a free-kick in a dangerous position. The defender remains down for the hosts in need of treatment after the fact.
Álvaro Negredo
Goal
63' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! NEGREDO MAKES AN INSTANT IMPACT!!! 2-1!!! The home side regain their advantage as Lenglet and Ter Stegen make terrible mistakes at the back. Alba's throw into Lenglet evades the defender as he misses his kick. Ter Stegen tries to help, but smashes his clearance straight into Negredo. The striker holds his composure as the ball spins towards goal, evading a challenge from De Jong before placing his strike into the net.
62' BLOCK! Perea lines up the free-kick, but can only smash his effort straight into the wall. Lenglet can breathe again.

62' Negredo replaces Gimenez in the final for the home side.

Yellow Card

60' Bodiger tries to break through the middle of the Barca defence, but goes down under pressure from Lenglet. Cadiz have a free-kick right on the edge of the box.
57' Izquierdo breaks with pace down the right flank and he surges into the box. He cuts the ball back across the face of goal, but only Busquets is there in the middle. The midfielder clears the danger for the visitors.
Alcalá
Own Goal
57' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! ALCALA DIVERTS THE BALL INTO HIS OWN NET!!! 1-1!!! Barca have their equaliser in fortuitious circumstances as Alcala sends the ball past Ledesma. Messi works an offload into the path of Alba down the left and he fires a low cross towards goal. Alcala gets across to block the cross, but it travels off his boot and past the legs of Ledesma into the bottom-left corner.
56' Barcelona are encamped in the Cadiz half, but the home side are defending with resilience on the edge of their own box.
54' Messi tries to break through the wall of yellow shirts, but is crowded out. Dembele's pass towards Griezmann is then repelled by Fali.
52' Pedri has to perform his defensive duties at the back, blocking a cross from Perea on the left flank.
52' Alex feeds Perea down the left flank and he wins a corner off the legs of Griezmann. 
50' SAVE! Pedri and Braithwaite combine to tee up Messi on the edge of the box, but his drive is saved with ease by Ledesma.
48' Barca build down the left flank and Alba tries to send a low ball towards the near post. Braithwaite tries to react, but it travels through into the arms of Ledesma.
46' The home side apply pressure down the left through Perea, but the attack peters out as Alex loses possession.
46' We're back underway in this LaLiga clash.
Pedri
Óscar Mingueza
46' Mingueza pays the price for his error. The defender is replaced by Pedri, which will see De Jong drop back into defence.
O. Dembélé
Philippe Coutinho
46' Coutinho is withdrawn at the break by Koeman. Dembele replaces the Brazilian.
Barcelona have been fairly lacklustre in the final third in the first half. Unless Messi has been on the ball there has not been a lot of forward progress. Koeman needs more from Antoine Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho and Frenkie de Jong in the second half to support the Argentine.
Cadiz take a 1-0 lead into the break over Barcelona in their LaLiga clash. Oscar Mingueza's error allowed Alvaro Gimenez to convert at the back post to put the home side ahead. It was all Barca after the fact, but the Catalan club have failed to net an equaliser as Jeremias Ledesma has been on form to deny Martin Braithwaite and Lionel Messi. Ronald Koeman's side have work to do in the second half.
45' + 4' HALF-TIME: CADIZ 1-0 BARCELONA
45' + 3' Messi and Griezmann combine, which sees the latter flick a cross into the box. However, Coutinho is offside as he tries to make contact with his header.
45' + 2' WIDE! Messi lifts a ball over the top for De Jong, but neither he nor Coutinho can bring it under control. Alba lines up a drive from the left-inside channel, only to blast his effort well wide of the target.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
44' Bodiger is on the spot for Cadiz to clear the ball behind for a corner as De Jong almost unlocks their backline with an offload to Griezmann.
43' SAVE! Messi tries to catch out Ledesma directly from a corner. His cross angles towards the net from the right flank, but the keeper reacts in time to turn it over the bar.
42' Messi lifts a cross into the box and Ledesma comes a long way off his line to punch it away. He has to dive to make contact, but the keeper does just enough to clear his lines.
41' Jonsson is not happy with the referee as Griezmann goes down in stages after a challenge that sees the Cadiz midfielder win the ball. Barca get the free-kick in a useful position.
38' The game is playing perfectly into the hands of Cadiz at the moment. There's a lack of tempo to Barca's play, which is allowing the home side to remain compact in their shape.
36' Messi again tries to pull the strings for Barca, but his throughball for Braithwaite travels away from the forward and behind for a goal-kick.
35' Messi flicks the ball over the top for Dest to chase down the right flank. The full-back gathers and fires a low cross towards the near post. Alcala reacts ahead of Braithwaite to turn it behind for a corner.
33' There's not a lot of movement for Barca in the final third. Griezmann has been too quiet in the opening 33 minutes.
Alcalá
M. López
31' Alcala replaces Mauro at the back for the home side.
30' Cadiz are doing a solid job at the back. They're disrupting the momentum of the visitors in their build-up and have looked lively on the counter.
28' Mauro is down for the home side after a collision with Lenglet at a Barca corner. He signals to the bench that he will have to come off the field.
26' SAVE! Messi powers his strike towards goal, curling his effort over the wall. Ledesma watches it all the way and punches the ball away from danger.
24' Messi tries to weave his way through the Cadiz defence and goes down on the edge of the box under pressure from Jonsson. Barca win a free-kick in a dangerous position.
21' Messi lines up a strike from 35 yards following handball from Jonsson. However, he sends his strike from a free-kick well over the bar.
21' Cadiz are attempting to keep the play ahead of their backline. They're prepared to drop deep and force Barca to break them down. With Messi in the line-up it can be a dangerous strategy.
19' Barca apply pressure and win a corner down the left flank. However, the delivery from Messi is repelled by the home side before Carcelen clears the danger with a boot downfield.
17' SAVE! Cadiz opt not to launch a cross into the box and lose possession in the Barca half. Messi sends Braithwaite through into the right-inside channel to fire at goal. However, Ledesma produces a fine save to turn his effort wide of the post.
15' Izquierdo draws a foul from Busquets, allowing the home side to send another delivery into the box.
14' CHANCE! Messi releases Dest down the right flank and he sends a perfect low ball across the face of goal. Griezmann cannot reach it on the stretch, while Coutinho in the left-inside channel hammers his strike over the bar.
11' It is the first goal since Barca have conceded since their defeat to Atletico on November 21. Koeman's team need a response.
10' The game halts for a second for the referee to double check with VAR that the goal was not offside. However, Gimenez was onside before Mingueza's header, therefore the goal stands.
Álvaro Giménez
Goal
8' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! GIMENEZ PUTS CADIZ AHEAD!!! 1-0!!!! The home side take the lead from the set-piece and Gimenez converts at the back post. Perea puts his delivery on the money and Mingueza loses his footing and directs a low header towards his own goal. Ter Stegen does brilliantly to keep it out on the line, but Gimenez is there to ensure that the ball ends up in the net of the net. A dream start for Cadiz.
8' Perea surges down the left flank and wins a corner of the legs of Dest. Cadiz can send men forward into the box.
7' Coutinho twists and turns before chipping a cross into the box, but it sails over the head of Griezmann and out for a goal-kick.
5' De Jong cuts in from the right flank and makes his way into a central position on the edge of the box. He shoots on his left foot, but his effort is deflected into the hands of Ledesma.
3' Barcelona attempt to get on the front foot, but Lenglet overhits his cross from deep straight out for a goal-kick.
1' We're underway in this LaLiga clash.
Cadiz have lost their last six LaLiga games against Barcelona, since a 4-0 win in May 1991 under Ramón Blanco with Johan Cruyff in charge of Barcelona.
Barcelona make three changes to their side that beat Ferencvaros during the week. Messi returns to the fold after being rested by Koeman. Coutinho and De Jong also come into the side in the middle of the back as Pjanic, Trincao and Dembele make way from the line-up. Barca are still without Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti due to injury.
Cadiz have made two changes to their side that drew last time out against Elche. Salvi is out due to injury, while Malbasic drops to the bench. Perea starts on the right flank to replace the former, while Bodiger starts in the middle of the park. It will allow Alex to push forward in support of Gimenez in the final third. Juan Cala and Jose Mari are still sidelined for Cervera's men.
BARCELONA SUBS: Ronald Araujo, Carles Alena, Miralem Pjanic, Ousmane Dembele, Riqui Puig, Neto, Pedri, Trincao, Junior Firpo, Inaki Pena.
BARCELONA (4-3-3): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Sergino Dest, Oscar Mingueza, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Philippe Coutinho; Lionel Messi, Martin Braithwaite, Antoine Griezmann.
CADIZ SUBS: Jon Ander Garrido, Anthony Lozano, Jorge Pombo, David Gil, Ivan Alejo, Carlos Akapo, Augusto Fernandez, Alvaro Negredo, Pedro Alcala, Nano Mesa, Filip Malbasic, Bobby Adekanye.
CADIZ (4-4-2): Jeremias Ledesma; Isaac Carcelen, Fali, Marcos Mauro, Alfonso Espino; Alberto Perea, Jens Jonsson, Yann Bodiger, Jairo Izquierdo; Alex Fernandez, Alvaro Gimenez.
Since losing to Atletico Madrid 1-0 last month, Barca have reeled off three wins on the bounce in all competitions, scoring 11 goals without conceding. Ronald Koeman's men still have problems in LaLiga and are well off the pace in the race for the title. However, they have found their form in front of goal, putting three goals past Ferencvaros during the week in the Champions League. Expect goals tonight from the Catalan club.
After a strong start to the season, Cadiz have fallen away in recent weeks. Alvaro Cervera's men are winless in their last three matches, including a 1-1 draw against Elche on the road last time out. Despite their recent issues, they begin the day above Barcelona in the table. However, it will take a strong performance from Cadiz to overcome a Barcelona team that are beginning to find their stride.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the LaLiga clash between Cadiz and Barcelona at the Ramon de Carranza.
