Athletic Bilbao vs. Barcelona: La Liga Live Score from San Mames

Tre' Atkinson@@TreAtkinsonFeatured ColumnistApril 26, 2013

And that is it folks. Athletic Bilbao score late to steal one point in a 2-2 draw at San Mames.

After Susaeta and Bilbao spent the entire first half in command with a one goal lead, things changed quickly.

Leo Messi was brought in and immediately changed the feel of the match. The Argentine scored one of the best goals you will see all season, followed by a solid goal from Alexis Sanchez.

The Catalans held the 2-1 lead until the 90th minute when Ander Herrera volleyed the ball from inside the box to beat Victor Valdes. 

Barcelona is now 14 points ahead of Real Madrid, but Los Blancos have a chance to cut that 11 if they are able to win the Madrid derby in the next La Liga game of the after noon.
