It was a much needed win for Barcelona who came from behind against a very spirited Athletic Bilbao side on Sunday night, Barcelona of course were coming into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Real Madrid in Copa Del Rey final and they needed the win at any cost to keep their title challenge on track.

But the start of the game was not as Barcelona would have hoped, they created a few chances in the first half but never looked threatning and things got bad to worse when Aduriz scored in 50th minute to put the away side 1-0 up.

At that point it looked like Barcelona are going to drop points in this game but they turned things around with two quick goals in 3 minutes. First it was Pedro Rodrigues and than it was their prize asset Lionel Messi.
