Villarreal 2 - 2 Barcelona (Mar-20-2016) La Liga Highlights

Barcelona extended their lead at the top of La Liga to nine points after a 1-1 draw at Villarreal - but it was a missed opportunity to make the gap even larger as they let a two-goal lead slip.

Luis Enrique's men knew they had the perfect opportunity to strengthen their grip on the league title after second-placed Atletico Madrid lost 2-1 to Sporting Gijon yesterday, but they failed to take full advantage.

Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring after 20 minutes when Villarreal failed to clear Lionel Messi's free-kick, and Neymar doubled the lead before half-time from the penalty spot after a dubious decision by the referee.

But Villarreal fought back in the second half to earn a point through Cedric Bakambu and an own goal from Barcelona substitute Jeremy Mathieu.
