Messi scored a stunning last-minute equaliser against Sevilla

Sevilla player Franco Vazquez opened the scoring from close range in the 36th minute and Colombia international Luis Muriel doubled the home side’s lead by smashing in on the rebound five minutes into the second half. Barcelona star player Lionel Messi started  the game on the bench due to continued muscle discomfort which caused him to miss Argentina’s friendlies against Italy and Spain and the league’s top scorer was called into action in the 58th minute, replacing Ousmane Dembele.
Lionel Messi displayed a stunning last-minute equaliser as La Liga leaders Barcelona fought back from two-goals down to draw 2-2 at Sevilla. This match helped Barcelona to extend their unbeaten La Liga run to 37 matches and edged them closer to regaining the title.
The home side would have scored more goals, but Gonzalez Navas saw his shot blocked on the line by Pique before Vazquez lashed the loose ball wide. Suarez saw his sliding effort come back off a post after being picked out by Alba. Muriel, though, spurned another chance when through on the break, before Barcelona resumed their onslaught.
Philippe Coutinho stabbed wide, the ball coming off his knee, and Ivan Rakitic's header at a corner then struck the upright.
Finally Barca broke through, as Suarez bundled the ball in at the back post with just two minutes left.
Barcelona remain 12 points clear at the top, with Atletico in action on Sunday, while Sevilla are still sixth, a point behind Villarreal who also have a game in hand.
