Lionel Messi drew level with Cristiano Ronaldo's tally of four European Golden Shoes after receiving the award at a ceremony in Barcelona on Friday.

Unfortunately for Higuain, Messi didn't spend all evening in the bib as he came on as a second-half substitute during the Turin stalemate.

Messi, who turned 30 in June, has been instrumental in Barca's fine start as they also fly high in the Liga and can strike an early blow in their bid to reclaim the title when they visit Valencia.

'Leaving Messi out was hard but he has played a lot this season and today we saw a long and tough contest so we thought a rest would do him good, ' the Barcelona boss said.

"They have the advantage that they only play once a week so it's a very hard game for us, even more because it's at their place, but we'll go there with lots of enthusiasm and we'll go all out to win the game".

Messi has scored 37 goals in LaLiga last season.
