Lionel Messi shone his magic once again as he leads Barcelona in demolishing third place Valencia 5-1 at Camp Nou by scoring four goals and providing an important contribution for Barca's fifth scored by Xavi Hernandez.

The Argentinian's quart-trick also improved his goal scoring tally into 27 already this season in the league, one behind current top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, staging the set for a potential El Pichichi battle for the two top players by the end of competition.

FC Barcelona cut the lead at the top back to ten points with a brilliant 5-1 win against Valencia. Unai Emery's side has always made Barca struggle, but this was completely different. Even though it didn't start well conceding a goal early, but after that it was total domination. We had 27 shots off 13 were at goal.

Lionel Messi was the hero for Barcelona on his 250th competitive game for the club as he scored the winner to beat Athletic Bilbao.

Goalkeeper Daniel Aranzubia was Deportivo La Coruna's hero as he scored a dramatic last-gasp equaliser to earn his side a point at second-bottom Almeria.

With his side trailing to Pablo Piatti's brilliant 48th-minute opener, Aranzubia ventured forward for a corner deep into injury-time and headed in a goal that helped Depor avoid what looked set to be a fourth defeat at the hands of Almeria this season.
