New Delhi:

Barcelona's Jordi Alba scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Valencia on Sunday in an exciting La Liga clash. Barca were denied the opener as Lionel Messi’s tame shot after half an hour was spilt by goalkeeper Neto and bounced over the line.

However, the Brazilian dragged it back over and referee Ignacio Iglesias Villanueva allowed play to continue.

Spain striker Rodrigo Moreno helped Valencia gain the lead with a shot from close range before Alba haunted his former club with a brilliant equaliser.

Barcelona lead the standings on 35 points, Valencia have 31 while Atletico Madrid are third on 27, level on points with fourth-placed champions Real Madrid.
