In what has been one of the most entertaining matches of the 2013/14 season so far, Barcelona scored three goals courtesy of Lionel Messi to grab an away win against Valencia at Mestalla Stadium.
It looked like a walk in the park for Barcelona in the first half as they coasted to a 3-0 lead courtesy of Messi and co., but Hélder Postiga turned the match around after he pulled two goals back for Valencia. Barcelona were able to hold on for a 3-2 final result, but that was after a final 20 minutes of end-to-end action where both sides had chances to score.
