Barcelona can not dwell on Roma defeat - Valverde

Barcelona can not dwell on Roma defeat - Valverde

Blame, however, has been directed less at Messi than the team's ability to cope without him at his blistering best and for this, Valverde has taken most of the flak. Gaspart, who ran the Catalan giants at the turn of the century, wasn't amused feeling too much is being placed on the shoulder of Messi.

Umtiti and Gerard Pique struggled to contain an inspired Edin Dzeko in the Champions League clash in the Italian capital. We feel responsible for letting them down.

Valverde will hope the record can go some way to healing the wounds picked up on Tuesday when Barca threw away a three-goal first leg lead as they crashed out of the Champions League to Roma.

"We issued a plea for information to those fans who may have been involved in these incidents", said a statement on Chelsea's website issued on Friday. "This is the toughest loss since I've been with Barcelona, because of the way it happened". In 2016, Barcelona fell to Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid 3-1 on aggregate, winning 2-1 at home and losing 2-0 in Madrid. "We needed 10 points to win league, now it's seven".

"You can not have a bad moment in this competition and that happened to us the other day".

Valencia, who are third above Real Madrid in the table, have enjoyed a superb season and played with confidence.

Zindine Zindane's men have struggled domestically this season but have surpassed Barcelona in the Champions League.

A new agreement between Umtiti and Barcelona still seems the most likely outcome, and the club's Champions League exit may actually help proceedings along. We've still got two trophies we can win this season.

Valencia got a lifeline as they pulled a goal back in the 87th minute through a Daniel Parejo penalty following a foul by Umtiti inside the box.

Barca top the standings with 79 points after 31 games while nearest challengers Atletico Madrid are 11 behind on 68. Barcelona have also set an all-time LaLiga record of going undefeated in 39 straight games.
