Barca saw their lead at the top of the Primera Division cut to five points after they were held at Sevilla on Sunday night.
Substitute Bojan Krkic gave Barca the lead after half an hour but Jesus Navas levelled for the Andalusians early in the second half.
There were chances for both sides after that in an entertaining encounter and Barca boss Pep Guardiola will be happy with a point in the end against a dangerous and unpredictable Sevilla side.
Barca coach Pep Guardiola remarked: "Overall I'm quite satisfied with how we played. We always try to control the game, but sometimes you face a strong opponent. We didn't lose though and never stopped trying."
