Unbeaten after 13 games, Valencia vs Barcelona 1-1
The opening half-hour was tense with minor chances at both ends but no clear openings, before a huge moment changed the game.
Neto fumbled Messi’s strike over his goal-line before shoving it out, the ball clearly over the line for everyone to see, apart from the officials, who waved play on.
Valencia came out fired up in the second period and went ahead on the hour mark, with Goncalo Guedes slipping in Jose Gaya, who fired in a low cross for Rodrigo to convert at the near post.
Barcelona struggled to create many chances to equalise until Messi chipped the ball over Vlaencia’s defence to Alba, who volleyed home with aplomb in the 82nd minute.
