Barcelona Bounces Back From UCL Setback, Sets LaLiga Record

AS Monaco to refund fans who attended 7-1 humiliation by PSG

AS Monaco to refund fans who attended 7-1 humiliation by PSG

A poor challenge from Ousmane Dembele on Parejo gave Valencia a way back into the match with three minutes remaining.

Ernesto Valverde's side lead their nearest challenger, Atlético Madrid, by 14 points, with Diego Simeone's team hosting Levante and fourth-placed Real Madrid visiting bottom-placed club Málaga on Sunday.

Valencia, meanwhile, have been in fine form this year as they come into this match having won eight out of their last nine league matches.

A awful back-pass from Barca nearly went pear-shaped as it freed in Rodrigo, who took a touch before forcing Ter Stegen pushing his shot to the crossbar for a corner.

Barca's goalkeeper has been excellent this season and he was kept busy as Valencia attacked, saving again from Rodrigo two minutes before half time.

However, Barcelona doubled their lead in the 51st minute when Samuel Umtiti rose high to head it into the net from a corner.

Valencia's belief was dwindling and two acrobatic volleys, from Lionel Messi and then Andres Iniesta, nearly added a spectacular third, as the first flew just over and the second was parried by Neto.

"We issued a plea for information to those fans who may have been involved in these incidents", read a club statement on their official website.

"This wasn't a week to think about records, we don't give it too much importance". We're sorry for what happened.

We tried to continue the great league showing after what happened the other day.

Barca went on to end the season with seven straight wins, narrowly missing out on the title to Madrid before Valverde replaced Luis Enrique in the summer.

'We have a cup final next week so we have to look forward not back.

The win at the Camp Nou, which was more comfortable than the scoreline suggested, also eases fears that Tuesday's Champions League collapse against Roma could affect Barcelona's march to the league title.

They face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final next weekend as they seek a domestic double.
