Barcelona 3-0 Sevilla: as it happened
Barcelona sit comfortably on top

FT: Barcelona 3-0 Sevilla
Barcelona win comfortably in the end!
There will be three minutes added on!
Ivan Rakitic channels his inner David Beckham and attempts to lob Ter Stegen from just inside the Barca half. It's unfortunately not like Beckham at Wimbledon and flies over the bar.
Lucas Ocampos heads straight at Ter Stegen.
This win will open up an eight-point gap between Barcelona and Real Madrid, who lost to Mallorca earlier in the day.
OFF Jordi Alba
ON Alejandro Balde
ON Ferran Torres
Alba has been very good tonight.
With Sevilla dead and buried, Xavi is about to make another change.
Barcelona are turning it on. It's champagne football.
De Jong plays it to Alba, who takes it down and crosses into the box for Raphinha to finish from close range.
Barcelona do more damage on the right. Koundé links up with Raphinha but the latter sends his effort over. Sevilla have it all to do now.
Koundé plays a long ball over the top to Raphinha, who runs into the space. The former Leeds player turns back onto his stronger left side and plays in a low ball, across the six-yard box, for Gavi to tap into the empty net at the back post.
Lamela fouls Gavi and Barcelona have a free as we approach the final 20 minutes.
It's one Argentinian for another.
Ocampos comes on with a piece of paper and hands it to Jordan. It's either tactics, or a nearby restaurant for the post-match grub.
It opens up for Koundé in the inside right channel. The Frenchman shoots over from 20 yards.
It looks like Rafa Mir is going to come on for Sevilla, who are now chasing the game.
That goal puts Barcelona eight points ahead of Real Madrid, as things stand.
Kessié does superbly well to play the left-back in and he finishes with precision from a tight angle.
Ansu Fati is warming up for Barcelona. They need something different to open Sevilla up and maybe he's the one.
Raphinha heads straight into Bono's hands.
Xavi can't believe it.
It's a cracking diagonal cross by Pedri to create the chance and set the Brazilian up at the back post but he can't direct it past Bono.
Lewandowski heads wide from an Alba cross on the left.
It's overhit and the Polish striker dives to head it but can only head it wide. 0-0
Sevilla are set up in a 5-4-1. Barcelona continue to recycle it but have not yet penetrated in the opening minutes of the second half.
Injury update: AS understand that Sergio Busquets will be out for up to 15 days.

And we're off for the second half!
Sevilla are making a double change at the break.
The players are on their way out for the second half.
It's goalless at the break at Camp Nou.
Barcelona have had the majority of the possession but have been unable to get past Bono in the Sevilla goal.
And there's the whistle for half-time!
Rakitic is booked for a high challenge on Araújo. That was studs and all.
There will be two additional minutes.
Camp Nou is absolutely massive, a midfielder's dream. Xavi must see so much space, even standing from the touchline.
Raphinha, on the right, opens up onto his left, and curls an inswinger to the back post. It evades everyone and flies out for a goal kick.
Barcelona's transition on the right is rapid, starting with Koundé and then moving on to Raphinha. It finds its way to Lewandowski and is eventually headed out for a corner. 0-0
Pape Gueye gets Sevilla moving from a deep midfield role. Kessié is the one pressing most from Barca's midfield.
Sevilla have done well to stay in this one. Sampaoli is cosy under his hat after serving a ban for protesting.
En-Nesyri is down after a push from Christensen.
Possession in the last 15 minutes:
Barcelona - 90%
Sevilla - 10%
Lewandowski's effort is hit like a bullet and flying in from 20 yards but the Moroccan shot-stopper gets a strong right hand to it.
It's all Barcelona at Camp Nou. Pedri, De Jong and Raphinha have been involved in plenty of the early action. Xavi will be happy and asking for patience.
Raphinha's corner finds De Jong. Barca recycle the ball back as Sevilla defend on the edge of their box in a 6-4-0.
Barcelona win a free. Acuna fouls Koundé.
Raphinha curls the free in from the right wing and it's cleared out for a corner.
This is Barca's fifth corner.
From the resulting corner, Araújo heads just wide from Pedri's corner. Barca are threatening now. That Bono save brought me back to the World Cup. That feels like a long time ago now.
It's a brilliant stop to deny Lewandowski from close range.
Barcelona are unable to make the most from the corner and Sevilla clear. 0-0
Pedri crosses the free from the right into the box. It goes out for a corner.
Rakitic knocks Koundé over and Barcelona have a free.

And there it is.

Franck Kessié is already warming up as the Barcelona players gather around Busquets, the club captain.
Sergio Busquets is receiving attention after going in on a challenge with En-Nesyri.
