Barcelona lead 2-0 going into the half-time break but thought they'd found themselves behind in the first half.
Allan Nyom thought he'd put Jose Bordalas' side ahead at the Nou Camp but VAR ruled it out for a foul on Samuel Umtiti.
Barca would soon take the lead following a lovely no-look pass from Messi to set up Antoine Griezmann.
The Frenchman drifted into the box and prodded past the keeper with ease.
