La Liga is getting difficult. Very difficult, despite Leo Messi. The Argentinian scored in the 90th minute to avoid Barcelona's defeat against Villarreal, but Barcelona missed another chance and Madrid has five points more and one match more to play.

Barcelona's problem is not the way of playing or the performances, but the lack of fortune in the areas was key. Suarez and Neymar had another black night, while Messi couldn't score until the very last minute.

Digne and Andre Gomes made the starting eleven, while Jordi Alba sat on the bench and Ivan Rakitic wasn't in the squad. Digne started well and connected with Iniesta and Suarez in the first half. Sergi Roberto also attacked a lot, but his crosses didn't find a team-mate.

Villarreal counter-attacked trough Pato and Sansone. The Italian scored the opener with a great shot that Ter Stegen couldn't save. Maybe the German goalkeeper could have done something more in the action.

Finally Luis Enrique used a three men defense to look for the equalizer. Denis and Arda played in the final minutes... but it was Messi once again who rescued the team.
