With Barca's focus clearly on Manchester United, Messi and Pique were among 10 players rested for the stalemate at El Alcoraz as coach Ernesto Valverde prioritised Tuesday's second leg and progress to the Champions League semi-finals.
PSG were miraculously dumped out despite having won 2-0 in Manchester.
Since joining Manchester United last summer for just over £50million, Fred has had some minor issues in adjusting life to the Premier League and doing enough to show he deserves to play as a regular starter.
The title chase might be all but over but the race for Champions League places continues to get tighter.
Juventus have a 20-point advantage on Napoli and can still seal the title on Sunday if Carlo Ancelotti's side fail to win at bottom club Chievo. However, they've played Barcelona in the 2014/15 season as well, and were thoroughly humbled by the side.
Juventus on the hand, grabbed an away goal against Ajax in their 1-1 draw.
The second highest goalscorer on that list is arch rival Lionel Messi, who is 25 goals behind the Juventus star's tally with only 16 goals to his name. He also handed defender Paolo Gozzi, 17, his Serie A debut.
And while we're all well aware of the magic Messi is capable of, he proved his toughness with his determination to play on after losing quite a lot of blood. As a effect, he has rested his most significant player Messi on Match Day 32 against Huesca.
"I needed to see the conditions of Juan Cuadrado, who is unfortunately off the Champions League squad list, and also Dybala, whose fitness levels weren't at their best", he added.
But Bonifazi pulled SPAL level, connecting with a corner to head past Perin.
"We can't forget that we need ten points to be champions, no matter how much we think that we might be there already".
