Lionel Messi limped off injured as Barcelona strolled to only their second away win in the Primera Liga this season with an impressive 3-0 victory over struggling Valencia at Mestalla.

Samuel Eto´o struck twice in the first half and Eidur Gudjohnsen added a third after the break as Barcelona secured their first league win on the road since September´s 4-1 success at Levante and closed to within a point of rivals Real Madrid, who face Osasuna on Sunday.

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard brought in Gudjohnsen, Yaya Toure and Eric Abidal, and surprisingly opted to leave star duo Ronaldinho and Deco on the bench.
