Valencia 1-1 Barcelona – Highlights

Lionel Messi failed to score a penalty as Valencia and Barcelona drew 1-1 in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at the Mestalla.

Messi saw his spot-kick saved in the second half as Barcelona – the most successful club in Copa del Rey history, having won the tournament 25 times – had to settle for a draw after Carles Puyol’s header had cancelled out Jonas’s opener.

But Barca were fortunate not to be reduced to 10 men in the first half when Jose Pinto’s handball outside the box wasn’t seen by the match officials.
