A Lionel Messi brace helped Barcelona come back to draw 2-2 against Valencia at the Camp Nou.
Kevin Gameiro had given Valencia the lead on the counter-attack, then Daniel Parejo doubled it with a confident penalty.
Messi calmly converted a penalty of his own just before half-time, then leveled it up with a beautiful left-footed curler after the break – the Argentinian has scored in each of his last 9 games.
Barcelona 6 points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga, but having played a game more.
