A hard fought contest at The San Mames saw Barca take the lead, but find themselves pegged back by a fine Francisco Yeste volley.
A defensive error had handed the Catalan side the lead - with a high ball catching out the Bilbao rearguard and allowing Samuel Eto'o a chance to lash powerfully home from ten yards out.
However, Yeste produced a moment of magic to level the scores and earn his side a share of the point.
The Bilbao star volleyed home across Victor Valdes superbly to light up this Basque - Catalan match.
A fine solo strike by Fernando Torres rescued a share of the points for ten-man Atletico Madrid against Valencia.
Miguel Angulo had opened the scoring after a terrible mistake from goalkeeper Leo Franco.
Atletico were then reduced to ten men when Veijko Paunovic picked up a silly second yellow card.
However, Torres forged an equaliser with a fine run before unleashing a low drive that Santiago Canizares could only help into the bottom corner.
