Barcelona Loses 2-1 to a super fighting Valencia

Barcelona on 17th April had a hard night after they went down 2-0 in the first half in the hands of the super fighting Valencia in a game that ended as Valencia won 2-1 with Messi ending his drought for goals.
The Catalans lost their third match in a row for the second time after they did so when they were in the hands of Luis Van Gaal as the manager in October 2003, and Valencia was one among the the three teams.
Goals from Rakitic (own goal 27′) and Mina (45+1) before breaking for half time break ensured that Valencia stand on better side of the cliff with 45 minutes remaining. On 63rd minute, Messi scored the consolation goal. Barcelona have now conceded the first goal of the game in FOUR consecutive games.
Currently, title challenge for La Liga lies on hanging and swinging-weak-threads for Barcelona since they tie the same points with Atletico Madrid and are only one point clear ahead of Real Madrid who on the other side qualified for Champions league.
Barcelona will thus have to fight more if the want to retain the title.
