Barcelona fans lament loss of Iniesta, salute the brilliance of Messi and Suarez after 5-goal thriller [Best Tweets]

The Mestalla staged one of the most exciting La Liga matches in recent memory. The 5-goal thriller included goals from Messi, Suarez and Munir, an injury to Iniesta, and bottles being thrown at Neymar by the home fans.

It started off in the worst possible way for the visitors, with captain Andres Iniesta suffering an injury early on, because of which he had to be stretchered off the pitch. The knee injury, as it was later revealed, could keep him out for months.

Mere minutes later, Lionel Messi gave Barcelona the lead with a sublime finish.

Munir El-Haddidi, currently on loan at Valencia from Barcelona, brought his side back on level terms against his parent club, but refused to celebrate.

Barcelona barely had any time to recover from that goal when Rodrigo put the home side in front in the 56th minute, to send the Mestalla into a frenzy!

But the champions weren’t going to go down so easily, with Golden Shoe winner Luis Suarez equalising for his side minutes later.

Then as it seemed as if Valencia had salvaged a brilliant point from this game, a bit of magic from Messi and a moment of madness from Aymen Abdennour helped Luis Suarez win a penalty in the 93rd minute.

And Messi stepped up, making no mistake.

The 5-goal thriller was marred by controversy as Valencia fans hurled projectiles onto the Barcelona players celebrating in front of them, with Luis Suarez and Neymar seeming to bear the brunt of the angry home fans.
