Luis Suarez scored a spectacular overhead kick to inspire nine-man Barcelona to a 4-0 La Liga victory over Sevilla at the Nou Camp.

Suarez opened the scoring in acrobatic fashion in the 27th minute and goals from Arturo Vidal, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi – his first of the season from a trademark free-kick – sealed a comfortable victory.

The win was Barca’s fourth in a row in all competitions since a shock 2-0 loss at Granada on September 21 and lifts Ernesto Valverde‘s side to second place in LaLiga, two points behind leaders Real Madrid.

However, the win was marred by the late dismissals of Dembele and Ronald Araujo, the former receiving a second yellow card for dissent after last man Araujo had been sent off for hauling down Javier Hernandez. Relive all the action below:

It’s Antonio Conte vs Maurizio Sarri in the battle of the former Chelsea managers this evening. Both Inter and Juventus have made excellent starts to the season, the former sitting two points clear at the top with six wins from six.


This has all the ingredients required for a classic. Inter look capable of challenging the hegemony of Juventus, who have won the last eight Serie A titles. And it will be an intriguing tactical battle between Conte and Sarri.


It has been an inauspicious start to the season for Barcelona. Ernesto Valverde is under increasing pressure from fans, particularly following a 2-0 defeat at Granada a couple of weeks ago.


Since then, though, there has been a response. Barcelona have won their last three games in all competitions, beating Inter in the Champions League last time out. They will be tested today by a Sevilla side level on points with them.

Barcelona know the importance of a win here. They are five points behind leaders Real Madrid after Los Blancos won 4-2 against Granada on Saturday. 


Here’s a long read from Miguel Delaney on two of the clubs in action tonight:


Aaron Ramsey only makes the bench for Juventus tonight. There is a return to the starting XI, though, for Paulo Dybala, who comes into the team for Gonzalo Higuain.


Inter, meanwhile, start with Romelu Lukaku up front, although Alexis Sanchez is absent having been sent off against Sampdoria last weekend.


Barcelona start with a front three of Ousmane Dembele, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, with Antoine Griezmann dropping to the bench.

The teams are out at San Siro! Almost time to get underway.


We’re underway! Can Inter extend their lead over Juve to five points? Or will the visitors return to the top?
