Barcelona dropped points at Camp Nou for the first time in the campaign as they began 2010 with a 1-1 draw against Villarreal.
Barca had looked to be on course to get the new year underway in style as Pedro put the ball into the net seven minutes into the match after Thierry Henry had hit the woodwork.
However, in-form Villarreal hit back early in the second half when Cani struck the ball across goal for David Fuster to fire in.
Barcelona : Pedro (7)
Villarreal : David Fuster (51)
