The star was just centimetres away from scoring early on. He shot from the edge of the box, striking the frame of David Soria's goal, the ball bouncing on the line before being gathered by the keeper.
Messi was left wanting and shortly after made it 1-0. He did so thanks to a through ball from Busquets which the Argentine received far away from the opposition goal. He showed his power and beat the goalkeeper one on one, firing a shot across the goal with which the ex-Sevilla man could have done better.
Barca's happiness was short lived, however, as Lenglet diverted a poor shot from Angel into his own net to make it 1-1 before the first quarter of an hour.
