Barcelona needed late goals from Leo Messi and Luis Suarez to steal a point at lowly Villareal. Messi scored an incredible free kick from just outside the box in the 90th minute before Luis Suarez equalized with a rebound strike off a corner kick three minutes later to earn first place Barca a draw.
The English Premier League and La Liga are widely considered the two best leagues in the world. Both have their supporters, but recently La Liga has separated itself by dominating European competitions. Meanwhile, English teams have struggled in the UEFA Champions league, with Spanish teams dominating the tournament and winning five of the last seven matches.
Since Chelsea’s win in 2012 over Bayern Munich, no English team has even reached the final.
