Half-Time Report: Real Valladolid holding Barcelona at Camp Nou

A stunning strike from Alexis Sanchez cancels out Javi Guerra's early header to see Barcelona and Real Valladolid level at the half-time break.

Barcelona and Real Valladolid have shared two goals in the first half of this evening's La Liga clash at Camp Nou.

The visitors took a shock lead in the 10th minute when Javi Guerra directed a header past Victor Valdes, but Alexis Sanchez struck a stunning effort past Diego Marino to draw the Blaugrana level four minutes later.

Christian Tello should have put the home side ahead but he waited too long to shoot, allowing Marino to make the stop.

The goalkeeper made another good save to prevent Neymar, although Marc Barta put in a brilliant block on Zakara Bergdich's effort at the other end.

Barca should have had a penalty when Neymar was brought down inside the area in the 33rd minute, but somehow the referee saw nothing wrong with Carlos Gonzalez Pena's challenge.
