Barca were indebted to goalkeeper Victor Valdes for producing two superb saves to secure a point at the Mestalla. Ever Banega opened the scoring for Valencia after 33 minutes, but their lead lasted just five minutes before Lionel Messi scored off a penalty spot after Pedro had was challenged in the box by Joao Pereira.
Roura, overseeing first-team affairs with head coach Tito Vilanova still undergoing cancer treatment in USA, told Barca’s website: “Valencia’s intensity made it difficult for us to play our game and it was hard to get close to their area. Perhaps we didn’t create a lot of chances and we weren’t as fresh as we have been in the past.
