Xavi struck deep into stoppage time to earn Barcelona a draw in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final with Valencia.

David Villa gave Ronald Koeman´s side the lead in a rare Valencia attack after 69 minutes and it seemed that goal would see Los Che return to the Mestalla with a slender advantage.

But Xavi pounced with a late, late strike to even things up - a goal Barca certainly deserved on the balance of chances.
