Barcelona's title celebrations were put back a few days after a last minute equaliser gave Villarreal a 3-3 draw in the Nou Camp. Pep Guardiola's side appeared to be cruising after they went 3-1 up at the break, an Eto'o strike and an Alves free kick giving them a two goal cushion after Llorente had cancelled out Keita's early goal. But Mati Fernández got one back from the penalty spot after Abidal was sent off for a foul on Nihat, and in the second minute of injury time Llorente got his second of the night to put a damper on Barça's plans.
