There was another 4-4 draw at Villarreal — with a comeback too!

A late Barça goal back in the 2000/2001 season gave them a draw eerily similar to Tuesday's

Another buzzer-beater for Barça. On Tuesday night at Villarreal, Luis Suárez scored on the final play of the game to draw Barça level, 4-4, and give them a valuable point in the standings as they continue their push towards another La Liga title. Just four minutes earlier, Villarreal were up 4-2 and appeared to be headed towards a victory. Leo Messi made it 4-3 in the 90th before Suárez knotted it up in the 93rd. Curiously, an eerily similar finish occurred on the same field some 18 years earlier:

Barça were down 3-0 in that game and battled back to tie it with two goals from Patrick Kluivert and another from Rivaldo. Villarreal retook the lead in the 65th, and appeared to have the game won until the 89th minute, when Kluivert completed his hat-trick and made it a 4-4 draw.
