FC Barcelona produced a remarkable comeback to snatch a 4-4 draw in La Liga against Villareal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
It was one of the craziest finishes ever after being up by 0-2 away from home to being down by 4-2.
The reigning champions got the 2-0 lead through Philippe Coutinho and Malcom, but Villareal fought back from the goals of Samuel Chukwueze, Karl Toko Ekambi, Vicente Iborra and Carlos Bacca.
However, late goals from substitute Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez salvaged the result to avoid a first league loss since November 2018.
Captain and top scorer Messi gave his team a hope to the game with a deadly free kick in the 90th minute to make it 4-3. Meanwhile, Suarez broke their heart right at the end when he equalized the game during the injury-time.
“It was a crazy game. There were times when it seemed either of the two teams could win without any problems. It shows how strong this league is. You cannot go into any match thinking that you’re going to win. It was important not to lose.” Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde stated
On the other end, the draw gave Villareal two points above the relegation zone as they’re in the 17th spot of the league’s table.
Right now, the Catalans, who currently have 70 points in the standings, are eight points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid going into their matchup on Sunday at the Nou Camp while El Submarino Amarillo set to travel to face Real Betis a day later.
