Barcelona FC came from behind to Earn a Draw against the yellow Submarines Villarreal in an explosive clash at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
The Catalan side went ahead 2-0 early in the game through Philippe Coutinho and Malcom.
Meanwhile, Villarreal started the day only one point above the relegation zone but looked like champion from the moment Nigerian teenager Samuel Chukwueze ran on to a long ball forward and hit the post before slamming the rebound home.
The Catalans could handle the pace of Chukwueze and Ekambi throughout and that clinical combination brought their second-half equaliser.
But the yellow submarines took the game beyond league leaders by responding with four sublime goals to live the game at 4-2 with Samuel Chukwueze, Karl Toko Ekambi, Vicente Iborra and Carlos Bacca scoring.
Villarreal had Alvaro Gonzalez sent off and Barca took advantage with substitute Lionel Messi’s 90th-minute free-kick and Luis Suarez’s injury-time equaliser.
Barca are eight points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid going into Saturday’s meeting at the Nou Camp.
