FC Barcelona tied 2-2 against Valencia on Mestalla and remained a point above Madrid in La Liga in what was one of the best matches so far this season in European Football.

The first half, Barcelona's three man defense (Mascherano-Puyol-Abidal) crumbled and surrendered two goals, with Pedro pulling one back from the Blaugrana.

Pep returned to a 4-3-3 in the second half before turning back to a 3-4-3, with Cesc tying the game and Barca almost winning it in the final minutes.

Overall, it was a good result for Barcelona on what will prove to be one of the most difficult stadiums to play on La Liga this season. But even then, there where some points to learn from this tie for Pep and his men.
