Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao: Barcelona leave it late to get a draw

With star man Lionel Messi on the bench and a shaky back line, Barcelona went down 1-0 in the first half against Athletic Bilbao.

They were coming off the back of a shocking loss to Leganes during the week, and face a match against Tottenham in the Champions League next week. 

Substitute Munir El Haddadi came off the bench and equalised for Barcelona late on. Luis Suarez then had the ball in the net in injury time, but it was disallowed for offside and the game ended in a draw.
