Lionel Messi And Luis Suarez Both Score Worldies As Barcelona Draw 4-4 With Villarreal

Barcelona and Villarreal played out a eight-goal thriller with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both scoring worldies.

Barcelona raced into a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Philippe Coutinho and Malcom.

However, Villarreal then scored four goals without reply to make it 4-2.

Samuel Chukwueze, Karl Toko Ekambi, Vicente Iborra and Carlos Bacca all got on the score-sheet with ex-Arsenal hero Santi Cazorla creating two goals.

But Barcelona left it late as they rescued a point deep, deep into stoppage time.

Messi reduced the deficit after scoring yet another free-kick. He curled in a beauty on the edge of the box. He literally takes free-kicks like they're penalties.

And with seconds remaining, Suarez fired in a stinging strike into the back of the net to secure a dramatic draw.

The Catalan giants are now eight points ahead of nearest rivals Atletico Madrid who beat Girona 2-0.
