Barcelona played to a 1-1 draw with Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium on Sunday night in La Liga.

The hosts seized the lead inside two minutes, as Ezequiel Garay took advantage of some slack defending to tap home a Dani Parejo corner at the far post.

Lionel Messi equalised for Barcelona midway through the first half. The Barcelona captain swapped passes with Luis Suarez and then fired a low shot past goalkeeper Neto.

Barcelona went on to dominate possession for the majority of the game but could not find a winner. The result means they have been knocked off the top of the table and sit a point behind Sevilla in second.

What’s Next?

Barcelona will be back in action after the international break when they welcome Sevilla to the Camp Nou on Oct. 20. Valencia will play host to Leganes the same day.
