Barcelona's Lionel Messi has goal disallowed despite ball clearly crossing the line

La Liga doesn't have goal-line technology, resulting in Messi's 'goal' being disallowed against Valencia.

Half an hour into Barcelona's tight contest with los Che, Messi had a strike from range which Neto spilled into his own net. 

The 28-year-old goalkeeper eventually batted the ball away, but the official failed to realise it had clearly already crossed the line.

Thanks to La Liga's lack of goal-line technology – mainly due to league president Javier Tebas's primary concerns about costs – the goal wasn't awarded by referee Ignacio Iglesias.

Messi and his Barcelona team-mates were left fuming at the decision in the La Liga clash which ended 1-1.

Rodrigo put Valencia ahead early in the second half before Jordi Alba scored a vital equaliser eight minutes from time.
