FULL-TIME, Villarreal 4-4 Barcelona: You’ve just watched the wildest Barcelona game since the 6-1 against PSG. This point is huge, and if we beat Atlético Madrid it’ll feel even bigger. What an unbelievable game.

GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Villarreal 4-4 Barcelona (Suárez 90’+3): UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!! BARÇA EQUALIZE!!!!!! A corner kick by Lionel Messi falls to Luis Suárez at the far post, and the Uruguayan scores a spectacular first-time shot to save Barça a giant point!!!

GOAL! Villarreal 4-3 Barcelona (Messi 90’): BARÇA SCORE! Lionel Messi wins a free kick at the edge of the box and fires a rocket that hits the post before going in. It’s an incredible goal, but it may have come too late.

GOAL, Villarreal 4-2 Barcelona (Bacca 80’): Villarreal kill the game. Santi Cazorla puts Carlos Bacca through on goal, and the Colombian rounds Ter Stegen to score the fourth and end Barça’s hopes on the night.

GOAL, Villarreal 3-2 Barcelona (Iborra 62’): Villarreal take the lead. Vicente Iborra is on the receiving end of a brilliant pass, and the midfielder just passes the ball past Ter Stegen.

GOAL, Villarreal 2-2 Barcelona (Toko Ekambi 50’): Villarreal equalize. Toko Ekambi finds himself in space, takes the ball to the baseline and catches Ter Stegen off guard with a shot instead of a cross.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Villarreal 1-2 Barcelona: Come on, boys! Let’s secure this win!

HALFTIME, Villarreal 1-2 Barcelona: WILD first half. Just insane. The goals came early, but the action was non-stop throughout the half. Barça have the lead, but anything can still happen in this one.

GOAL, Villarreal 1-2 Barcelona (Chukwueze 23’): Villarreal get one back. Santi Cazorla puts Samuel Chukwueze through, and after hitting the post on the first try the young man scores the rebound and the Yellow Submarine are right back in it. What a crazy start.

GOAL!!!!!! Villarreal 0-2 Barcelona (Malcom 16’): BARÇA DOUBLE THE LEAD!!!!!!! After a really nice sequence of possession with the ball going from side to side, Arturo Vidal plays a perfect cross into the box and Malcom heads home the second.

GOAL!!!!!! Villarreal 0-1 Barcelona (Coutinho 12’): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!!!! Sergi Roberto puts Malcom through on goal, and the Brazilian sets up Philippe Coutinho for an easy tap-in and Barça’s first goal. After a really good start from Villarreal, the Blaugrana score at the right time.

KICKOFF! Villarreal 0-0 Barcelona: Come on, boys! Please don’t give me a heart attack.
