Pablo Piatti put Valencia ahead in the 48th minute, the midfielder rose the highest to head over Valdes.

Lionel Messi equalised for the home side in the 53rd minute from the penalty spot, after Alberto Costa was adjudged to have handle the ball in the box.

Six minutes later and Valencia regained the lead through Paco Alcacer, the striker whipped in a wonderful effort, following a cross form Feghouli.

Dani Alvez came close with a long range effort in the 83rd minute but the fullback's shot whistled just wide of the post.

Messi squandered a great chance deep into stoppage time, the Argentine danced his way into the box before rolling his effort just wide of the post.
