VIDEO: Valencia CF 1 – 1 Barcelona [La Liga] Highlights 2018/19

Sevilla are the LaLiga leaders heading into the October international break after champions Barcelona could only draw away to Valencia.

Lionel Messi scored a brilliant equaliser as Barcelona’s winless run in LaLiga stretched to four matches following a 1-1 draw at Valencia.
Ezequiel Garay capitalised on terrible marking to convert a corner in the second minute, but Valencia were unable to make the most of their early dominance at Mestalla on Sunday.
Messi levelled midway through the first half with a wonderful strike from outside the penalty area, although Barca, who beat Tottenham 4-2 in the Champions League in midweek, could not find a winner.
