"They may say we have a chance to do it, but it's very far away". Will we see them on Strictly one day?

Valverde made an emotional farewell from Bilbao during the summer after four successful years at the club, during which time the team finished no lower than seventh and qualified for the Champions League on one occasion.

The Catalan giants dominated for the rest of the half but were unable to add to their advantage, with Philippe Coutinho hitting the woodwork twice.

Indeed, when the visitors did finally get a shot on goal in the 69th minute, Raul Garcia knew very little about the attempt as Enric Saborit's effort clipped his heels and was easily taken by Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Messi could have added to the scoreline in the 88 minute when he beat three defenders on his way into the box, but he fired just wide from 16-yards out. "We're not going to tempt fate".

"I hope that he can catch Messi in La Liga, it's important for him [Ronaldo] and for us", Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. Barcelona's strong attacking pedigree of having Lionel Messi in sublime form reflected in the UEFA Champions League as well.

Unai Bustinza put Leganes ahead four minutes before half-time with a superb header in their Butarque stadium in the Madrid suburbs.

Messi had already had a couple of sighters when he got on the scoresheet on the half-hour mark.

Atletico Madrid's faint hopes of catching Barcelona were dealt a major blow after a 2-1 defeat at Villarreal.

Forward Javier Eraso side-footed home a second goal for the home side in the 69th minute and things got worse for Sevilla when midfielder Pablo Sarabia was sent off in the 84th for picking up two yellow cards inside 11 minutes.

But Unal headed in an 82nd-minute equaliser for the hosts and turned home a stoppage-time winner as Villarreal climbed up to fifth.

The Portuguese striker has now netted 22 times in the league this season, trailing Messi by just three goals.
