In an exciting match at Camp Nou, Lionel Messi tied the game for Barcelona against Valencia with a beatiful goal from outside the box amid a huddle of defenders.
The Argentine star netted the goal, his second of the match at the 64-minute mark, bringing the score to 2–2 in La Liga, a result that gives Atletico and Real Madrid a chance to catch up to the Blaugrana.
Both sides from the capital play on Sunday.
The brace means that Messi now has 21 goals this season. It was a hard-fought point as his team had to come back after being 2–0 down in the first half, thanks to a goal from Kevin Gameiro and a penalty converted by Dani Parejo.
Messi also has 10 assists for Barcelona on the season.
