Villarreal 1-1 Barcelona. La Liga

Lionel Messi gave Barcelona fans a sigh of relief when he scored last-minute free-kick to salvage a point for Barcelona and deny Villarreal a  win on Sunday.

Nicola Sansone started the scoreline with a low angled finish after ex-Chelsea loan signing Alexandre Pato’s  pass.

Messi hit a post and Barca were denied a penalty when Bruno handled a shot by the Argentina forward, before Messi’s brilliant set-piece goal.

Barca remain at third  in the La Liga table and trail leaders Real Madrid by five points.

Villarreal, who remain fifth in La Liga, had full-back Jaume Costa sent off close to full-time after a second yellow card.
