Barcelona Beats Valencia, Sets Unbeatean Record in La Liga

15 April 2018

We were able to get the three points, which is the most important thing. "Sometimes this club's fans tend to get downcast easily and when there is a loss like Tuesday's everything falls apart. And I must congratulate my players because it wasn't easy".

The Catalans have now gone over a year since they lost a league game - against Malaga - and extended their lead at the top of the table to 14 points, with second placed Atletico Madrid in action on Sunday.

Nonetheless, the win for Barcelona vs Valencia inches the Blaugrana closer to the LaLiga title, a saving grace after another disappointing Champions League campaign.

The incredible Barcelona streak dates back to last season, with 32 of the matches this season. "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".

Mets' d'Arnaud to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery
The Mets announced on Friday morning that Plawecki has a hairline fracture in his left hand and will be placed on the 10-day DL. The New York Mets have called up catcher Jose Lobaton from Triple-A to start on Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The ex-Liverpool man started the match in an inside right midfield position, and found himself floating into risky pockets in the 15th minute before sliding a perfectly timed through ball into Luis Suarez for the Uruguayan to tuck the ball in at the near post.

The speed of Valencia's Goncalo Guedes caused Barcelona trouble throughout the first half.

Four minutes after Barca's opener, Rodrigo Moreno took advantage of a defensive mix-up to strike a shot which Andre Ter Stegen pushed onto the crossbar with his left hand.

Gerard Pique hustled back to clear a goal-bound shot by Moreno early in the second half after Umtiti slipped and gifted Valencia a ideal opportunity to equalize.

Praising Winnie in her death is hypocritical , family tells SA government
American civil rights activist Jesse Jackson is expected to attend, as are the presidents of Namibia and the Republic of Congo. The day after she died, the ANC's top six leaders went to her home to pay our condolences to her family.

Barca were two up six minutes after the restart when Samuel Umtiti beat Gabriel Paulista to head a Coutinho corner down past Neto in the visitors' goal.

But, in the 86th minute, Jose Gaya was brought down in the box by Ousmane Dembele and Daniel Parejo managed to score the resulting penalty past Ter Stegen, who nearly saved the effort.

Ter Stegen, who is usually so assured with the ball at his feet, was under no immediate pressure before playing a poor pass out which eventually fell to Rodrigo, who failed to capitalize on the massive chance as the German goalkeeper redeemed himself with a fine save tipped onto the woodwork. It's a good lead and we have to think about the game on Tuesday [against Celta Vigo].
