Lionel Messi rescued a point for Barcelona Sunday, scoring an equalizer in a 1-1 draw vs. Valencia.

Messi's goal at Mestalla Stadium in Valencia marked his first La Liga score since Sept. 23. He was held in check against Leganes on Sept. 26, a rare respite for La Liga defenders this season. Prior to the match against Leganes, Messi tallied three goals and two assists in his past two matches. Messi now has six goals on the La Liga season. 

Watch Messi's beauty of a goal, in which he tucked his finish inside the right post, below:

Barcelona couldn't find a winner, though, and uncharacteristically is in the midst of a four-game winless streak (0-1-3) in league play. Sevilla leads La Liga by a point over Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after eight matches.
