Barcelona takes on Valencia today in a bid yo secure their second trophy this season.
The game started off on a brilliant note with Barcelona taking most of the possessions, but that wasn’t enough to secure the trophy for the Catalans as Kevin Gameiro drives home to put Valencia ahead … unmarked and drives past the unsighted Cillessen.
Barcelona totally bossing the game in terms of possession (86-14) but it’s Valencia with the vital statistic with the scoreboard reading 0-1.
Valencia make it 2 … Rodrigo header gives them the lead.
Messi pulls Barça back into the game tapping home after Jaume saves to reduce the goal deficit 2-1.
So a 4th place in LaLiga and Copa del Rey win for Valencia…not a bad season for the club in their centenary year. Well done
Barcelona played their role… But the focus will be on Ernesto Valverde and I fear that the impact of the Anfield defeat coupled with tonight’s game will run and run.
