None of the two was a hand ball offence, both shot at inadvertently from a small distance

Yeah it wasn't a foul. Montoya has had him in his pocket all night tbh.

Cilessen surely impressed ter Stegen with that earlier save lol

What a monster game from him.

I've mentioned times and times again, Cillessen is way too good to be sitting on the Barcelona bench.

Valencia frankly had their half chances but just couldn't convert them.

I still don't get Gomes and Paulinho. Paulinho at least has some numbers to back his woeful performances up but he doesn't add anything to the game. He is tall but can't win headers, he is big but not physical. I can see him losing a 50-50 to Kanté. And technically he is one of the worst Brazilian players I've seen since Giovane Elber Laughing

Have to say Rakitic has been our best and most consistent player this season (along with ter Stegen). I'm thoroughly impressed although I've kinda chatted some shite about him last season. I take it all back.

He's only 5'11"/181cm. He may be taller than Iniesta, but calling him tall is a bit of a stretch Razz Anyway, your ability to secure wins even when performing sub-par to your usual standards is praiseworthy. I wonder how far this team will take you in the CL, though.

I'm not Norwegian. Anything above 175 cm is tall to me Laughing

My 12 year old sister is 173cm Laughing You actually do have a few relatively tall players in your starting XI compared to the past, nowadays. I definitely preferred the team that had Busquets, Pique and Valdes towering over everyone else, though. Somehow, it feels odd to see the likes of Andre Gomez, Paulinho and Rakitic running around in your midfield. I suppose the image of Xavi and Iniesta weaseling around everyone has been embedded into my brain to some extent Razz

I will have to insist that 1.81m/5'11" is indeed to be considered TALL, for personal reasons Laughing

Yea many Barca fans were eager to ship him off to City at one point and then to United at another. Always liked him as a player and its good to see he has won back your trust.

In my defense he was neither that good nor consistent last season and deserved a fair share of criticism. I was of the opinion that he shouldn't be starting for Barca but I love how he bounced back and now I'm not afraid to admit that I was wrong and that he's a key piece in the puzzle. I'm happy for him, more than anything.

I consider that exact height tall for personal reasons as well.

Also, I wanna give the credit to Rakitic's "revival" to Barcelona actually hiring a proper manager. Hindsight really is something as I remember reading quite a few Barca fans not only wanting the Croatian out but had serious issues with the hiring of Valverde. Turns out, he knows what he is doing.

Yeah I think we expected Valverde to do well domestically wise, the question is how will he do in the CL.

Gomes getting games I'm pretty sure if purely based on his ability to add physicality to our team, but everything else from him is just always poor. I see the likes of Denis Suarez not getting chances anymore lately, Gomes should join him. Just leave them out Razz

Rakitic played well under Luis Enrique, too. Until Messi stopped following instructions and just stayed in the middle. Without Dani Alves we had no offensive right wing and defensively Rakitic had to defend everything. The entire structure was gone.

Valverde would have the same problems if Neymar was still here. When MSN is upfront who is defending the right side? Messi? lol Messi only wakes up when he takes DEM Ls in Ballon d'Or ceremony then Barca rises up with 1 or 2 great seasons and Messi thinks "my job is done" and sleepwalks again.

The final of the Copa Del Rey will be held on 21st April at the Wanda Metropolitano with each club being allocated 22,000 seats initially… That means the following games will be postponed due to the final being held in Madrid:

Atlético vs Betis
Sevilla vs Real Madrid
Barcelona vs Villarreal

These games will now be played on Wednesday 9th May.

In 2011, it was in mid April because barca and Madrid faced each other like 4 times in 3 weeks or something. I don't know why sometimes it's in April or at the end of the season
