Barcelona exploited the extra space as Alexis Sanchez was played clear into the area in the 60th but shot off the post, with Gorka Elustondo mystifyingly clearing the loose ball back into the area where it came off Zubikarai into goal.

Like Ronaldo, Messi was also muted until Zubikarai saved his leaping volley effort near the close.
