Barcelona could only draw 1-1 at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday evening, and although the result maintained their unbeaten league record, it was not enough to keep them at the top of the table. Both the goals came after the break, Dani Alves giving Guardiola's side the lead after Xavi set him up, and Toquero equalising after Llorente headed on Gorka's long clearance. To add to Barça's woes in such an important week, Messi limped off injured later in the second half.
