Luis Suarez set up Lionel Messi’s equaliser against Valencia on Sunday night, and in doing so became the player to have produced the most La Liga assists for the Argentine.

It’s also Suarez’s third La Liga assist of the season, as Barcelona recovered from losing an early goal to draw 1-1 at Mestalla.

Barcelona dominated the match but could not find a winner, and the draw means they’ve now gone four games without a win in La Liga.

Sevilla are the new leaders in Spain, and they head to the Camp Nou to face Barcelona after the international break.
