Ball Bullet European roundup: Bayern stunned by Leverkusen
European roundup: Bayern stunned by Leverkusen, Messi rescues Barcelona

• Leverkusen come from behind to surprise Bayern
• Lionel Messi drags Barça back.

Bayern Munich suffered a 3-1 defeat by Bayer Leverkusen who powered back from a goal down to beat the visitors on Saturday, ending the champions’ seven-game winning run in the Bundesliga and leaving them seven points behind the leaders Borussia Dortmund, who drew 1-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Peter Bosz’s attack-minded Leverkusen scored three goals in the second half as Leon Bailey and Kevin Volland overturned Bayern’s lead, from Leon Goretzka’s 41st minute goal, while Lucas Alario sealed the win with a late strike.

Germany international Goretzka headed in Thomas Müller’s cross after 37 minutes to put Bayern ahead with his fourth goal in the last three league games.

With Kingsley Coman wreaking havoc down the left wing it looked like a matter of time until the champions scored again. But Bailey fired home a stunning 25-yard free-kick eight minutes after the restart to level and Volland completed a stunning break that caught Bayern’s defence napping to secure the lead.

Julian Brandt could have added another goal for the hosts a little later but Bayern keeper Sven Ulreich tipped his volley round the post. Brandt then set up substitute Alario in the 87th for their third with a simple tap-in after another break.

Dortmund took the lead at Eintracht Frankfurt through Marco Reus but the in-form Luka Jovic drew the hosts level in the 36th minute.

In La Liga Lionel Messi dragged Barcelona back from two goals down by scoring twice to snatch a 2-2 draw at home to Valencia in a thrilling encounter which ended the La Liga leaders’ streak of eight consecutive league wins.

Valencia, who hit the woodwork in the second minute, went ahead in the 24th with a well-taken finish from French forward Kevin Gameiro and doubled their lead with a powerful penalty from Dani Parejo in the 32nd.

Messi halved the deficit seven minutes later by scoring for the ninth consecutive game in all competitions, converting from the spot after having a goal chalked off as the referee had already blown his whistle to award the penalty.

Barça’s captain equalised in the 64th with an unstoppable curling strike from outside the area, averting a first league loss for the league leaders since November and taking them on to 50 points from 22 games.

The equaliser may have come at a cost though as Messi was treated for a thigh injury shortly after scoring. He is now a doubt for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final at home to Real Madrid.
