No Rome hangover as Barca break LaLiga record

Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho set up Luis Suarez for a pretty goal against Valencia on Saturday. More

However, Valverde has found the best way to get the best out of his starting IX and although it might frustrate Cules, his pragmatism has seen Barcelona see out games at one- or two-goal margins where Barcelona sides of old might have gone looking for more goals.

As a result, Barca set a new league high for games without losing, breaking a record which had been held by Real Sociedad since 1980. Messi had been marshalled well but he showed a glimpse of his brilliance after 70 minutes with a trick and turn of pace to set up Andres Iniesta whose volley was well saved by Neto.

The flowing movements the Catalans have become known for got into action, as it circulated through the wings and played in Lionel Messi on two occasions, but the latter was unable to profit off the head.

The fatigue was obvious.

FC Barcelona kept their unbeaten LaLiga run intact with a 2-1 win over Valencia on Saturday afternoon.

The dynamic midfielder is hotly tipped to end his career with a big money move to China, with a number of top flight teams believed to be willing to give the Spanish legend a lucrative contract to finish his career.

DF Jordi Alba, 7 - Was Barca's most dangerous player for a large section of the game and made some important defensive contributions against his former club.

The German was the busier goalkeeper, but Barcelona were the more clinical team, with both goals supplied by Coutinho.

"He appears to be only thinking of himself".

Coutinho was absent from the Catalan side's midweek defeat to Roma in the Champions League as he is ineligible, while Paulinho watched from the bench as his side went crashing out of the competition.

Adrian Lopez scored twice as Deportivo La Coruna won at Athletic Bilbao 3-2 and moved to within five points of safety.

"The disappointments and the things we've done badly, they hurt".

Los Che face Barca just days after their Champions League elimination at Roma.

Ter Stegen gifted the visitors another chance with a poor clearance but made amends in style, turning Rodrigo's effort onto the crossbar with an excellent one-handed save.

"The week has been hard and that hard week affects everyone, including the fans".
