Deportivo 1 Real Madrid 5: Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez put visitors in front while Dortmund beat Bayern 3-2

Paris Saint-Germain take lead against Monaco at the Parc des Princes on bumper night of European action

smorgan 26th April 201710:27 pm

That’s it from SunSport towers tonight. Many thanks for joining us. A bumper night of European action. Some 26 goals across four games! Phew.

smorgan 26th April 201710:21 pm

FULL TIME Real beat Deportivo 6-2. Easy night for Zidane.

smorgan 26th April 201710:21 pm

FULL TIME Real beat Deportivo 6-2. Easy night for Zidane.

smorgan 26th April 201710:14 pm

GOAL Ridiculous number of goals in Europe tonight. It’s a fine finish from Casemiro but Deportivo have given up completely. It’s 6-2.

smorgan 26th April 201710:11 pm

Into the final seven minutes now. Real will tie Barca at the top of La Liga… but wait…

GOAL Deportivo get a second through Joselu.

smorgan 26th April 201710:04 pm

GOAL Isco, who has been electric tonight, caps off a brilliant evening with a fine side-footed strike.

smorgan 26th April 20179:59 pm

Deportivo have a goal disallowed.

smorgan 26th April 20179:55 pm

There was another goal in Paris. Marquinhos nicked the fifth for PSG to cap off a miserable night for Monaco, who were mauled 5-0. They will now face Angers 2-0 in the Coupe de France final on May 27.

smorgan 26th April 20179:53 pm

GOAL James Rodriguez can’t stop scoring now! Real lead Deportivo 4-1

smorgan 26th April 20179:49 pm

Real still making easy work of it against Deportivo. Though you wouldn’t know it looking at this guy.

smorgan 26th April 20179:47 pm

Five minutes left in France. PSG still lead Monaco 4-0. Think that one’s over.

smorgan 26th April 20179:45 pm

smorgan 26th April 20179:40 pm

They will face Eintracht in the final on May 27. Philip Lahm’s mistake will forever haunt Bayern here. The Double is off.

smorgan 26th April 20179:40 pm

FULL TIME Dortmund beat Bayern 3-2 to reach the final of the German Cup.

smorgan 26th April 20179:34 pm

Second half underway between Deportivo and Real. Still 3-1 to Zinedine Zidane’s men.

smorgan 26th April 20179:33 pm

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are ploughing forward but to no avail. There will be five additional minutes and Thomas Tuchel does not look pleased about that.

smorgan 26th April 20179:32 pm

One minute of normal time left at Bayern vs Dortmund.

smorgan 26th April 20179:23 pm

smorgan 26th April 20179:22 pm

Xabi Alonso goes down in the box… looks for a penalty… but is instead booked! And immediately subbed. Twelve minutes left for Bayern to get a goal.

smorgan 26th April 20179:20 pm

Meanwhile it’s now 4-0 at PSG. MBae with the own goal for Monaco on the 50th minute and Matuidi slots the fourth for PSG 120 seconds later.

smorgan 26th April 20179:18 pm

Ousmane Dembele, still just 19, curls a left-footed beauty to make it 3-2 to the visitors.

smorgan 26th April 20179:17 pm

GOAL DORTMUND

smorgan 26th April 20179:15 pm

Madrid’s third came from some great play from Isco. That should wrap up the fixture and keep Los Blancos level with Barca at the top.

smorgan 26th April 20179:14 pm

GOAL And just like that Lucas Vazquez puts Real two up again.

smorgan 26th April 20179:13 pm

And Deportivo just miss a chance to go level against Real! Kiko Casilla messed up his clearance and the ball bounces inches wide.

smorgan 26th April 20179:12 pm

smorgan 26th April 20179:12 pm

Aubameyang! It’s 2-2 at the Allianz. He hits in at the far post.

smorgan 26th April 20179:05 pm

It was Andone who got one back for Deportivo.

smorgan 26th April 20179:05 pm

Well after a flurry it’s all gone a bit quiet. Update on how things look…

Deportivo 1 Real Madrid 2 (35′)

PSG 2 Monaco 0 (HT)

Bayern 2 Dortmund 1 (62′)

smorgan 26th April 20178:44 pm

And there’s the second! James Rodriguez on the scoresheet again. It started with a great run by Kovacic and ended with a nice outside-of-the-boot flick by the Colombian.

smorgan 26th April 20178:43 pm

Wow. Asensio comes so close for Real. His long range effort hits the bottom of the post. It remains 1-0.

smorgan 26th April 20178:38 pm

Make it two for PSG. Cavani, fresh after signing a new deal, slots it home after a through ball from Angel Di Maria.

smorgan 26th April 20178:38 pm

smorgan 26th April 20178:32 pm

The Ligue 1 champions are one up against Monaco at the Parc des Princes.

smorgan 26th April 20178:32 pm

And there’s a goal for PSG courtesy of Draxler.

smorgan 26th April 20178:32 pm

Alvaro Morata puts Real 1-0 up. Great finish from a tight angle.

smorgan 26th April 20178:20 pm

FULL TIME at the Nou Camp. Easy for Barcelona. 7-1. They go top of La Liga… with Real Madrid taking on Deportivo La Coruna in ten minutes…

And they’re without Cristiano Ronaldo.

smorgan 26th April 20178:15 pm

smorgan 26th April 20178:15 pm

Javi Martinez levels for Bayern Munich. 1-1 there.

smorgan 26th April 20178:13 pm

Alcacer threads himself between two defenders and nudges it round Sirigu leaving just a tap in. Class.

smorgan 26th April 20178:12 pm

Stop it, they’re already dead. Alcacer gets his second of the night and it’s now 7-1. It was a great run, to be fair.

smorgan 26th April 20178:08 pm

We’re also now underway in France as PSG take on Monaco. Tres bien!

smorgan 26th April 20178:05 pm

Marco Reus puts Dortmund 1-0 up against Bayern Munich in the German Cup semi-final at the Allianz. It’s raining goals tonight, folks.

smorgan 26th April 20177:57 pm

Leo Messi celebrates his second tonight.

smorgan 26th April 20177:54 pm

The Barca bench are in stitches. Mascherano absolutely smashes it down the middle.

smorgan 26th April 20177:53 pm

Mascherano steps up to take the penalty! It’s his first goal in seven years.

smorgan 26th April 20177:52 pm

PENALTY awarded to Barcelona.

smorgan 26th April 20177:51 pm

I can’t keep up with this. Alcacer makes it 5-1. A bit fortunate for the ball to fall to him after bumping into Mascherano but it’s a neat finish.

smorgan 26th April 20177:50 pm

Another look at Roberto Torres’ wonderful strike.

smorgan 26th April 20177:49 pm

Messi now has 49 goals for the season. Just incredible. No surprise he’s being subbed off. Job done for the night. Put your feet up, lad. Kettle on.

smorgan 26th April 20177:48 pm

Shock, horror. Lionel Messi gets another. He makes the space and unleashes a rocket from just outside the box.

smorgan 26th April 20177:44 pm

Andre Gomes gets his second! Pique takes Rakitic’s corner down well and hits the bar, the rebound falling to Gomes who slots it in. 3-1 in the 58th minute.

smorgan 26th April 20177:42 pm

Well that looked a certain penalty for Barca. Rakitic has control of the ball as he races towards the touchline. Initially it looked like the Croatian was caught by a leg but he was shoved over, the Osasuna defender nowhere near the ball. Barca have a right to be fuming with that decision.

smorgan 26th April 20177:40 pm

The liberal use of capital letters suggests Osasuna can’t quite believe they have scored either.

smorgan 26th April 20177:39 pm

Andres Iniesta, or possibly Murr from Impractical Jokers, watches on at the Nou Camp.

smorgan 26th April 20177:36 pm

Sirigu just tips Mascherano’s header onto the post. Well done there. Barca almost bounce back within seconds.

smorgan 26th April 20177:34 pm

OSASUNA GOAL! Roberto Torres’ free-kick completely fools Ter Stegen. Outstanding strike.

smorgan 26th April 20177:33 pm

smorgan 26th April 20177:31 pm

And we’re about to kick-off for the second half…

smorgan 26th April 20177:29 pm

One way traffic at the Nou Camp.

smorgan 26th April 20177:27 pm

Just a reminder that Deportivo La Coruna host Real Madrid in just over an hour’s time.

HT Barcelona 2 Osasuna 0: Messi and Gomes give the hosts a comfortable lead.

smorgan 26th April 20177:14 pm

Andre Gomes celebrates scoring Barca’s second. Think there’ll be a few more to come.

smorgan 26th April 20177:11 pm

I could copy and paste much of the description of Barca’s attacking intent so far. Pretty much all coming from Messi, Rakitic and Gomes.

Osasuna, meanwhile, cannot get out of their own half. 2-0 with 41 minutes gone.

smorgan 26th April 20177:08 pm

Arda Turan almost makes it three. Mascherano delivers a perfect whipped ball but Turan gets only a glancing blow.

“He has to try ‘Arda”, says the commentator.

smorgan 26th April 20177:05 pm

It was a sublime finish from Gomes, who powered it in from 12 yards out. The keeper had no chance.

smorgan 26th April 20177:00 pm

Messi inches away from adding another… funnily enough from pretty much the same spot he scored the winner against Real… but then from the corner Gomes makes it two – and just his second all season.

smorgan 26th April 20176:56 pm

Andre Gomes seeing so much of the ball down the right but mostly playing back to Rakitic and Busquets… Messi goes for a rare goal with his right but leathers the half-volley over.

smorgan 26th April 20176:53 pm

Good bit of banter going on on Twitter regarding this game banter

smorgan 26th April 20176:52 pm

Osasuna’s touches thus far limited pretty much just to clearing the ball. Fine interplay between Messi, Gomes and Denis Suarez. Sniffing for another.

smorgan 26th April 20176:49 pm

Here is the big (little) man scoring Barca’s first.

smorgan 26th April 20176:43 pm

Messi intercepted a pass in midfield, brought the ball down and even flicked it up just to lob it over Salvatore Sirigu. Class.

smorgan 26th April 20176:42 pm

GOAL Lionel Messi dinks it over the keeper in the 12th minute for goal 501.

smorgan 26th April 20176:41 pm

Messi fouled. Barca have a free-kick roughly 40 yards out. Taken quickly… but it builds to nothing, with the hosts ready to knock it around either wing.

smorgan 26th April 20176:39 pm

Cheeky. The visitors go for a shot from the half-way line. It barely reaches Ter Stegen.

smorgan 26th April 20176:38 pm

As if it couldn’t get worse for Osasuna…

smorgan 26th April 20176:38 pm

So much of the play as always going through Messi, but it’s Gomes who pings a ball in. Arda can’t get enough power on the far-post header.

smorgan 26th April 20176:34 pm

An incredible tribute in honour of Leo Messi’s 500th goal the other night.

smorgan 26th April 20176:33 pm

The visitors, in their new kit, are lined up with the intent of damage limitation, it would appear. Ten people behind the ball to begin with. Yikes.

smorgan 26th April 20176:31 pm

Osasuna have the worst defence in La Liga. Could be a cricket score tonight, folks. Anyway, we’re underway.

smorgan 26th April 20176:28 pm

And this is the Osasuna side

smorgan 26th April 20176:27 pm

Here’s the Barca starting XI

smorgan 26th April 20176:17 pm

What magic will this little legend have in store for us tonight?
