Barcelona's Andres Iniesta (R) competes during a Spanish league soccer match between Barcelona and Valencia in Barcelona, Spain, on April 14, 2018. Suarez finished his run with a quick shot into a very narrow angle, beating Valencia keeper Neto in the 15th minute. Barca also still have to play Deportivo La Coruna, Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad.
It would now seem only the home Clasico against Real Madrid on May 6, and perhaps an awkward trip to Celta Vigo on Tuesday, stand in the way of Barcelona finishing the league campaign as invincibles. It's not the manger's fault.
MF Paulinho, 5 - The Brazilian did a decent enough job in defence but offered little going forward due to some imprecise passing. "Records exist so you can break them, but the most important thing was to win considering the mood surrounding the team, which we know wasn't good".
The win against Valencia means a seventh league title in 10 years now looks like a formality for Barca, but they still have some work to do if they want to end the season unbeaten. First of all, I am happy with the three points.
Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has reiterated that the support of the club's fans will not change his decision on his future at Camp Nou. He found Rodrigo, who fired past the German but was denied by Gerard Pique on the goal line. We need to learn from our mistakes.
For about an hour, Dani Parejo was the equal of Sergio Busquets as the best midfielder on the pitch. N'Zonzi struck four minutes later.
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. So the two spots he could have occupied in big games to come, including El Clásico and the Copa del Rey final, are taken.
Adrian Lopez scored twice as Deportivo La Coruna won at Athletic Bilbao 3-2 and moved to within five points of safety.
