FULL-TIME, Celta 2-1 Barcelona: Barça lose the season finale and Celta avoid relegation on a dramatic night at Balaídos, and the 2022-23 campaign is officially over for the league champions.

79’ GOAL! Celta 2-1 Barcelona (Fati): BARÇA GET ONE BACK! After a nice passing sequence Ousmane Dembélé puts in a sensational cross and Ansu Fati heads it home!

65’ GOAL, Celta 2-0 Barcelona (Veiga): Celta double their lead as Gabri Veiga tries to play a cross into the box but instead fires the ball over Iñaki Peña and into the net off the post.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Celta 1-0 Barcelona: Back underway for the last 45 minutes of Barça’s season!

HALFTIME, Celta 1-0 Barcelona: Barça had most of the ball, missed a couple of big chances and had a goal disallowed, but find themselves behind thanks to a poor mistake and terrible defending. Celta are securing safety with this result, and will try and defend the lead with their lives in the second half.

42’ GOAL, Celta 1-0 Barcelona (Veiga): Celta take the lead just before halftime as Frenkie De Jong loses the ball in midfield and Gabri Veiga is allowed to run past two defenders and fire home the opener.

41’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Carles Pérez gives Celta the lead by scoring on the rebound from a Ter Stegen save, but the goal is ruled out for offside.

11’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Barça take the lead through Franck Kessie, but the midfielder was offside and the goal is ruled out after a VAR check.

KICKOFF! Celta 0-0 Barcelona: And we’re underway at Balaídos!

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
