    Barca just need one goal in the second half, but feck me, they have been god damn awful in the second half.

    4 fouls but 4 yellow cards
    2 clear penalties not given
    Aduriz gets away with an aggression

    I can understand bad refeering, but this should be a crime

    Apparently Neymar hasn't scored in last 12 domestic games before this game? Appalling if true

    Maybe the referee is a tax inspector.

    When Marca says on the front page that Barca should've received 2 penalties and a red for Aduriz you know the shit's too obvious.

    Other than that it's clear Enrique is not even a top 10 manager.

    3 of those yellows were when Alba busquets and iniesta decided to protest heavily for the penalty shout though?

    Brilliant game. Although the expected complaining about the referees from fans at the big two in Spain gets really tedious. Yeah the ref has been shite tonight but your team has been pressed off the fecking park. He's not the reason you're losing.

    And another when Umtiti came back and asked Aduritz wtf was wrong with him. Now I'd like to see other teams that also bitch to the ref get 4 yellow cards for that in 45 minutes. But that only adds to the rest of the things in this first half

    It looks like Aduriz hit Umtiti on the throat with a fist, hence why Umtiti was grasping for air. It was intentional, though not intentional to hurt Umtiti as much as he apperantly did, rather to "mark your territory" kind of thing. Nevertheless; that is an obvious red to me.

    The winter break has possibly made us all forget the referee standard in Spain, but this referee is having a nightmare. Except for the obvious penalty to Neymar, and the dodgy inconsistent level of refereeing; he is refusing to book some players. Messi was all up in his face when they were going to the HT break, and still is protected from a booking. Raul Garcia is provoking Neymar and getting away with it, as always. He is the Spanish Van Bommel, since it takes Raul Garcia to commit 7-8 fouls before he gets the booking that he deserved 4-5 fouls ago.

    I still think Barca will go through rather comfortable. They are all fired up now, and I still think Bilbao will fold under a bit pressure and there is no way Bilbao will survive two legs against revenge seeking MSN+Iniesta.

    Can someone post a gif of the "clear" penalty, for me its seemed like Neymar milked it a bit, but have to see it again

    Why the hell didn't Messi take the shot in space there? Instead he just took a couple of touches back into traffic. Bizarre.

    Good decision now. The ball enterely crossed the line. 2-1 Messi.
    Great pass by Messi, but Suarez doesn't understand it.
    Neymar with almost a beauty. Great save.

    Wow, Raul Garcia second yellow. Never thought I would whitness it. Though this ref has been compensating the entire second half, lot of 50/50 gone to Barca's favour. However, Garcia got himself to blame.

    Surely Barca will put this to bed now with Bibao on 10 men. Didn't think it was worth a second yellow but hey, they got their decisions going for them first half, so its karma i guess

    He kicked him, but Neymar dived like he was shot dead.

    Despite 9 men to Bilbao, Barca haven't been very attacking. Seem a bit off and that goal was more like an anomaly "Messi anomaly". Scoring from a setpiece but from open play its going to take another anomaly to win this one.

    He is, but the kid Yeray who has been his partner has been better to me. It might be a little while before he is back, but at least he doesn't need chemo.

    Barca need Giroud, late-minute goal specialist.
