Barcelona began Saturday's match at San Mames in a dismal way to say the least. The Catalans looked out of sorts and Bilbao even outplayed them to enter the half with a 1-0 lead.
But with the entrance of Lionel Messi, everything changed. The Catalans looked sharper and surged to a 2-1 lead before conceding late to draw at two goals apiece. It was not Barcelona’s day, but a few players did show up in a big way.
