Barcelona 2 - 2 Valencia | 02 Feb 2019

Luckily for Barcelona, the 2-2 draw and two points dropped was not punished as Atletico Madrid lost 1-0 at Real Betis on Sunday.

Coach Ernesto Valverde said the Argentinian had a light muscle strain, throwing his availability for next Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg against Real Madrid into doubt.

A goal from Kevin Gameiro and a Dani Parejo penalty had given Valencia an unexpected 2-0 lead at Camp Nou but Messi's 20th and 21st league goals of the season earned Barca a draw.

But Messi appeared to suffer with a thigh issue in the second half, receiving treatment on the touchline before returning to the action as Valencia held on.

Nothing can silence the Camp Nou crowd like the thought of an injury to Lionel Messi - especially four days before a clash against Real Madrid.

"I imagine that it is not that bad".

"We'll wait to see what the doctors say, then evaluate things based on that".

Ter Stegen of Barcelona celebrates after the first goal of his team scored by Nelson Semedo (not in frame) during the La Liga match between Girona FC and FC Barcelona at Montilivi Stadium on January 27, 2019 in Girona, Spain.

Los Che almost stunned the hosts after Daniel Parejo forced Marc Andre Ter Stegen to a low save, with the rebound shot from Denis Cheryshev hitting the face of the post.

It took his tally to 11 in the last nine matches in all competitions.

Parejo doubled the advantage from the penalty spot after Roberto knocked down Wass trying to dispute a cross.

But a foul by Toni Lato led to Messi halving the hosts' deficit six minutes before the interval with a spot kick of his own as the teams went to the dressing room with Valencia leading 2-1. "If he's in good shape, he'll play on Wednesday [against Madrid]". We were dominating the ball and the feeling was that we could score goals.
