Lionel Messi scored twice and missed a penalty as Barcelona came from behind to move within two points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.

Ex-Arsenal man Gabriel headed Valencia in front 5 minutes into the second half.

However, the lead didn’t last long as Messi converted the rebound from his missed penalty kick in the 57th minute.
