Barca back to winning ways thanks to Messi brace
Lionel Messi struck twice on Sunday as Barcelona beat 10-man Valencia in a thrilling match to move two points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, reports BBC.
Eliaquim Mangala headed the visitors in front from a corner, before Luis Suarez steered in an equaliser.
Messi's penalty made it 2-1 after Manchester City loanee Mangala was sent off for dragging back Suarez, but Munir El Haddadi swept Valencia level.
Messi scored his second after the break and Andre Gomes made it four late on.
