Villarreal 1–1 Barcelona[Highlight] : Messi saves Barca to just a point

Lionel Mes­si has nev­er cease to amaze the world with his bril­liance as he helped Barcelona with the late goal that gave the Blau­grana a 1–1 draw against the Yel­low Sub­ma­rine. This game makes it the sec­ond game Bar­ca have being deprived of two deserved penal­ty against their oppo­nent. [VIDEO HIGHLIGHT]

With the result, the Blau­granas are now five points behind league leader Real Madrid even though The Vikings still have one out­stand­ing game to play. The Cata­lan club missed three clear cut chances to take the lead but failed to con­vert them. While the home side just had one major chance and uti­lized it as they had wished.

When a failed pass reached the hands of Vil­lar­real, they imme­di­ate­ly ini­ti­at­ed a counter attack but which lead to the first goal. On the oth­er hand Barcelona kept press­ing and dom­i­nat­ing the game but were fin­ing it real­ly hard to break into the defense of the Yel­low Sub­ma­rine.

Luis Enrique was very des­pi­rate for goal(s) that he sub­sti­tut­ed Digne for Arda and also took out Andre Gomes to intro­duce Denis Suarez into the game. It means at some point Barcelona played the game with three attack­ers, five mid­field­ers and three defend­ers.

The ref­er­ee did not award two deserved penal­ty to Barcelona after Bruno on two dif­fer­ent occa­cion stopped the ball with his hands in the 72 and 78 min­utes of the game. Also Mes­si hit the wood­work in the 73rd minute.

Lionel Mes­si came up with a fan­tas­tic free kick that made the goal­keep­er pause just to see the ball go into the top right cor­ner of the post. Lionel Mes­si once again saves Bar­ca from los­ing a game.
