Luis Enrique was left wondering what might have been as his side blew a two goal lead to drop points in the La Liga title race.

Lionel Messi had put the away side ahead on 14 minutes with a deft curling effort as Barcelona sought to re-establish their four point lead at the top of La Liga.

Barcelona doubled their lead on the half-hour mark when Brazilian Neymar fired in a superb free-kick, his 18 La Liga goal of the campaign.

Six minutes later Sevilla found their way back into the contest as Ever Banega netted a set-piece of his own, though Claudio Bravo was perhaps at fault for the effort.

In the second half Sevilla built up the pressure and sub Jose Antonio Reyes was particularly effective.

With seven minutes to go the former Arsenal man pushed forward and from the resulting attack fellow sub Kevin Gameiro prodded home from close range to hand Sevilla a point they duly deserved.
