Lionel Messi hit a perfectly executed free kick to help Bercelona secure a 2-1 comeback win for their injury-hit team. The win keep their title hopes alive for a fifth La Liga title in six years.

After disappointing losses, they got knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid, then losing the Copa del Rey final to Real Madrid, beaten in the King's Cup final by Real Madrid and suffered a shock 1-0 reverse at lowly Granada in La Liga, to Barca fans this win is a badly needed morale-boosting victory in front of their fans at the Nou Camp.

Barca has issues with injuries in recent weeks and were without Brazil forward Neymar and the Spain trio of left back Jordi Alba, central defender Gerard Pique and goalkeeper Victor Valdes for Bilbao's visit.
