FULL TIME IN ET: Barcelona 2-3 Athletic Club - ATHLETIC CLUB WIN THE SPANISH SUPERCOPA!
SENT OFF! Messi has been shown a straight red card! The referee has decided the Barcelona number 10 struck Villalibre off the ball and the Catalans will finish this match with 10 men.
VAR check! There's a late check for contact between Messi and Villalibre off the ball. The replays actually make it look like Messi initiated the contact with the Athletic Club player!
Is there one last chance left in this match? Barcelona are pressing. Only seconds left on the clock for the Catalans to find an equalising goal that would send this final to a shootout.
- Yellow cardJordi AlbaFC Barcelona
And now Alba enters the referee's book. Not for a foul, but for dissent after the foul.
- Yellow cardJon MorcilloAthletic Club
Moricllo hasn't been on the pitch for long, but he's been booked.
PICTURE: Athletic are five minutes away
Should have been four! Ter Stegen gets caught under a cross into the box, but Villalibre and another Athletic Club get in each other's way as they head over. That should have been a goal!
Griezmann on the volley! Alba found the Frenchman at the back post with a wonderful cross, but Griezmann could only lash his shot well wide of the target. Athletic Club survive.
Almost an own goal! Was it Nunez who very nearly diverted a cross into his own net? Whoever it was, it was a player in red and white and they got away with it as the ball bounces wide.

- OnJon MorcilloAthletic Club
Morcillo also comes on for Athletic Club in this extra time period.
- OffClément LengletFC Barcelona
- OnFrancisco TrincãoFC Barcelona
Trincao comes on for Lenglet as Koeman really goes for it now.
Will Williams' goal prove to be the match winner or is there another twist in the tail of this final? What do Barcelona have left in the tank? Can they send this final to a shootout?
The second period of extra time is under way! Athletic Club have a 3-2 lead over Barcelona in this Spanish Supercopa final!
HALF TIME IN ET: Barcelona 2-3 Athletic Club
Athletic Club are now camped on the edge of their own box as Barcelona look for a way through. Just not happening for the Catalans at the moment. Not breaking them open.
The problem for Barcelona is that the more players they commit forward the more space they leave in behind for the likes of Williams to exploit on the rapid counter attack.
What do Barcelona have left in the tank? It must be said they look rather tired. They have played a lot of football recently. Their semi final on Wednesday also went to extra time!
- OffSergio BusquetsFC Barcelona
- OnRiqui PuigFC Barcelona
On comes Puig for Busquets as Koeman goes on the attack.
Nunez comes on for Martinez. Marcelino freshening some things up late on.
Koeman looks bemused on the touchline. Barcelona were 2-1 ahead and set to win this final as they headed into stoppage time at the end of the match. Now they are 3-2 behind.
Quite incredible by Williams. He scored the first goal of the Marcelino era against Barcelona two weeks ago and he's just topped it by scoring that. What an incredible goal!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 2 Athletic Club 3 (94 mins - Inaki Williams). What an incredible goal! Athletic Club have completed the turnaround and what a way to do it! Williams picked up the ball on the corner of the box, cut inside on to his right foot and then curled a stunner in off the inside of the far post. Wow!
What will we see in this extra time period? Will Barcelona be able to pick themselves up after playing extra time just a few days ago? There's a chance fatigue will be a factor here.
You have to question why the Spanish Supercopa games go to extra time instead of just straight to penalties in this congested schedule this season. It seems completely unnecessary.
Extra time is under way! It's 2-2 between Barcelona and Athletic Club in the Spanish Supercopa final!
FULL TIME: Barcelona 2-2 Athletic Club - INTO EXTRA TIME!

- OnMartin BraithwaiteFC Barcelona
... and Braithwaite is also on the final few minutes of normal time in Sevilla.
- OffPedriFC Barcelona
- OnMiralem PjanicFC Barcelona
It should be noted Barcelona made a double change before the goal. On came Pjanic...
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 2 Athletic Club 2 (90 mins - Asier Villalibre). A late, late equaliser! Villalibre gets on the end of a freekick delivery into the penalty box and fires high into the Barcelona net! The defensive line from the Catalans there was atrocious! What exactly was Lenglet doing there?!
Simon makes the save! That was the chance for Barcelona to wrap up the win! Messi played the pass to de Jong who stayed on his feet after a challenge. But Simon saves with his feet!
- OffMikel BalenziagaAthletic Club
- OnIñigo LekueAthletic Club
... and here comes Lekue for the final few minutes. Can he make a difference?

- OffAnder CapaAthletic Club
- OnÁlex BerenguerAthletic Club
A triple change from Marcelino to try and get back into this game. Berenguer comes on...
Barcelona are somewhat short of options at the back at the moment. Pique is still sidelined through injury, although Araujo and Mingueza have done well to step up to give Koeman some depth. Doing enough here.
Of course, the January transfer window is open and there had been hope at the Camp Nou that Garcia would arrive from Manchester City. It now seems more likely he will be signed in the summer window.
What do Athletic Club have left in the tank? They have less than 10 minutes of normal time left to take this game to extra time with another equaliser. Time is running out!
Just as I was saying Barcelona had run out of ideas in the attacking third, they take the lead again. Can they hold on to it for longer this time? 10 minutes left to play in this final.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 2 (77 mins - Antoine Griezmann) Athletic Club 1. Griezmann grabs his, and Barcelona's, second of the match! Alba was played to the byline down the left side, he picked out Griezmann in the middle with the square ball and the Frenchman converted into the back of the net!
It's not quite clear what the plan from Barcelona is at this moment in time. There's not a great deal going on in terms of attacking play from the Catalans. Playing for extra time?
Simon gathers! Barcelona had an overlap down the right side through Mingueza, but his cross was deflected. That gave Simon the chance to come off his line and gather the ball.
Another Barcelona player currently in good form is Griezmann. The Frenchman finally seems to have found his position and role in this team. He is starting to look the place for the Catalans, at long last, and has scored tonight.
De Jong has been very good recently. The Dutchman is enjoying his best run of form as a Barcelona player with Koeman using the former Ajax midfielder in a more advanced position.
Koeman is surely thinking about more changes at this point? Barcelona look a bit tired. They have played a lot of football recently. Athletic Club had that break due to the Madrid snow.
- Yellow cardDani GarcíaAthletic Club
Garcia is shown a yellow card and that had been coming for some time.
Williams fires wide! A cross into the middle fell to Williams after a poor clearance by Lenglet, but the Athletic Club forward could only send his strike wide of the near post!
Williams is a player with a lot of potential. The Spaniard scored the first goal of the Marcelino era in the league game against Barcelona. Williams must find some consistency to his performances.
Pedri has been excellent for Barcelona this season, but the teenager looks very weary this evening. He has played a lot of football recently. It's important to remember he's still young.
Spanish Supercopa success today would also be a big moment for Marcelino as he attempts to reshape Athletic Club in his own image as a coach. There is a lot of excitement around the club at the moment.
GOAL DISALLOWED! The officials have decided Garcia was offside when the freekick came into the box. A let off for Barcelona. That was very close and wasn't very obvious from the replays!
VAR checking... there might be an offside here against Garcia. Hold on!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 1 Athletic Club 2 (58 mins - Raul Garcia). Garcia has put Athletic Club ahead! The former Atletico Madrid man rose highest to get on the end of a freekick delivery into the Barcelona penalty box and guided his header into the far corner of the net! What a turnaround from the Basque side!
PICTURE: de Marcos equalised for Athletic
Easy save for Simon! Messi played a reverse pass in behind for Griezmann, the angle was always going to be tight and the Athletic Club goalkeeper plucks the chip out of the air.
A trophy today would be a good way for Koeman to prove Barcelona are heading in the right direction under his stewardship. It has been a difficult season, but recent signs have been more positive.
Messi just wide! That was close to being a second Barcelona goal. Messi sends his freekick just wide of the near post. Simon is furious with his teammates in the wall, who just parted.
PICTURE: Griezmann scored for Barca
Garcia takes aim! The holding midfielder angles a shot from distance towards the Barcelona goal, but that was never likely to beat ter Stegen from there. Flashes well wide.
Talking of Messi, there is still a lot of speculation around his future as a Barcelona player. The postponement of the presidential election won’t help the club’s chances of persuading him to stay.
Pedri has been one of Barcelona’s key men in recent weeks. Indeed, the teenage playmaker has been something of a phenomenon. His relationship with Messi is strong. They are on the same wavelength.
That has to be a change prompted by an injury. Dest has been struggling with a thigh injury of late. The American international had played relatively well in the opening 45 minutes.
- OffSergiño DestFC Barcelona
- OnÓscar MinguezaFC Barcelona
Koeman has made a change at the start of the second half and it's Mingueza on for Dest.
The second half is under way! It's 1-1 between Barcelona and Athletic Club in this Spanish Supercopa final.
HALF TIME: Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Club. Well, not much was happening in this match until the final five minutes when both teams found the back of the net! A weird first 45 minutes!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 1 Athletic Club 1 (42 mins - Oscar de Marcos). An instant response from Athletic Club! Barcelona fall asleep at the back and de Marcos nips in to get on the end of a cross into the box, finishing on the half volley past ter Stegen who stood no chance of keeping the ball out!
There was a sense that Barcelona were starting to turn the screw on Athletic Club and now they have the advantage before the half time interval. Marcelino not happy on the touchline.
- GoalAntoine GriezmannFC Barcelona
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 1 (41 mins - Antoine Griezmann) Athletic Club 0. The breakthrough and it belongs to Barcelona! Messi spread a pass out to Alba, he squared it back for the Argentine, his pass fell into the path of Griezmann and the French forward swept home a finish from inside the area!
Barcelona are starting to warm to the task at the end of this first half. Messi is still the one looking to make something happen for the Catalans even as he's playing on one leg.
MESSI... not far over! That's Barcelona's first chance of the match! The space opened up for Messi just over 20 yards out, but his drilled effort flashes just over the Athletic Club crossbar!
Athletic Club also had an away game against Atletico Madrid postponed due to heavy snowfall in the Spanish capital. So Marcelino’s first four games in charge could have been Barca, Atleti, Real Madrid and Barca again.
This will be Marcelino’s third game in charge of Athletic Club. His first game was against Barcelona, his second Real Madrid and now he’s up against Barcelona again! Tough start!
Poor cross! Dembele was in a good position to get a dangerous ball into the box, but his delivery is far too close to Simon and the Athletic Club goalkeeper gathers it with ease!
After a cagey start by both teams, this match is just starting to open up a little. There is some space in behind the Barcelona defence for the Athletic Club attackers to exploit.
PICTURE: Not happening for Messi yet
Garcia scored twice in the semi final win over Real Madrid during the week. He is still very potent in front goal even at this late stage of his career. Athletic Club playing well now.
Ter Stegen tips over! The Barcelona goalkeeper is called upon for the first time this evening, tipping over a Garcia cross from the edge of the penalty area. That was required! Was heading in!
Chance for Barca! Messi teased a cross into the middle from a freekick for Araujo, but the Barcelona centre back couldn't quite stretch far enough to make a connection with the ball.
Athletic Club saw off Real Madrid in their semi final in Malaga on Thursday night. Marcelino’s side had to do some defending towards the end, but their first half performance saw them through.
PICTURE: Dembele starts for Barca
Both sides have been very cagey in the early stages of this match. We're still waiting for the first scoring chance to be created. It must be said... not the greatest of spectacles so far.
Messi has barely seen the ball in the opening 20 minutes of this match. To be honest, he doesn't look very fit at all. Not much movement from him. Is it really wise for him to be on that pitch?
Athletic Club are now enjoying a decent spell in the match. They are seeing a lot of the ball and have Barcelona camped back inside their own half. On top at the moment.
However, Koeman will be pleased with how his team have bounced back in recent weeks. Things looked rather bleak for Barcelona not so long ago, but they have built some momentum since then.
Barcelona made it past Real Sociedad in their semi final, but the Catalans were far from impressive, only squeezing past Imanol’s side in a tense penalty shootout after extra time.
Araujo wins a freekick over Garcia from a set piece. That highlights his strength in the air. He has been one of the success stories for Barcelona this season. Playing very well.
That wasn't Lenglet's finest moment. He panicked, brought down Williams and now the Barcelona central defender has to be the rest of the match on a yellow card. On thin ice.
- Yellow cardClément LengletFC Barcelona
Lenglet clearly blocks Williams and the Frenchman enter's the referee's book.
PICTURE: No early breakthrough
Williams takes aim! Space opened up for the Athletic Club forward to take the shot, but a block took the sting out of the effort and ter Stegen scrambled across to make the save.
The Spanish football federation seeded both Barcelona and Real Madrid in the draw for the semi final in the hope that they would meet each other in a Clasico final. Well, that didn’t work out as planned.
Alba believes he should have been given a freekick, but the truth is Capa was just too strong for the Barcelona left back. Athletic Club starting to find their feet in the match.
Athletic Club in white shorts tonight...
Dest plays a short pass into Dembele, but the French winger is offside when he really shouldn't have been. Barcelona directing much of their attacking play down the right side.
Dest is also back in the Barcelona starting lineup this evening having missed the semi final win over Real Sociedad. Mingueza played at right back that night and looked a bit uncomfortable.
Messi is back for Barcelona this evening. The Argentine has shaken off an injury that kept him out of the Spanish Supercopa semi final against Real Sociedad during the week. They missed him.
Barcelona have taken a grip of things early on, at least in terms of their share of possession. Athletic Club already sitting deep and inviting pressure on top of themselves.
The match is under way! It's Barcelona against Athletic Club in this Spanish Supercopa final!
Okay, here we go. We are about to get under way in Seville. Kick off is just moments away.
The two teams are out on the pitch in Seville. Pre-match handshakes, loud music... all that stuff.
What sort of shape will Messi be in this evening? How fit is he? I guess we'll find out soon!
Not long until kick off in Seville. This has the potential to be a cracker of a match. Of course, these two teams met each other just two weeks ago and shared five goals!
