Suarez Steers Barca To First Leg Win

Copa Del Rey Report: FC Barcelona v Valencia 01 February 2018

By SL International - Feb 02, 2018 12:23 AM

Copa Del Rey 

Result: FC Barcelona 1-0 Valencia 

Date: 01 February 2018

Venue: Camp Nou

Luis Suarez's second-half strike guided FC Barcelona to a 1-0 win over Valencia in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final tie.

Philippe Coutinho, Paulinho and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen dropped to the bench, although Lionel Messi and Suarez were named in the line-up.

The Catalan giants dominated the opening exchanges but they had to wait until the 19th minute for a chance when Messi dragged his effort wide of the target from close range.

Valencia, meanwhile, stood firm defensively although they struggled to create any chances on the counter.

Barca did go close five minutes before the break when Messi fired in a low cross, which narrowly missed the outstretched leg of Suarez.

After a quiet start to the second half, Valverde introduced Coutinho in the 58th minute in the place of Aleix Vidal as they pushed for an opening goal.

10 minutes later, Barca broke the deadlock as Messi's cross found Suarez, who sent a diving header past Jaume Domenech, 1-0.

The hosts pushed for a second goal and went close in the 76th minute when Messi sent a curling effort inches wide of the upright.

The visitors nearly snatched an equaliser at the death, but Santi Mina sent his header over the crossbar at the far post as Barca held on for the 1-0 win.

I would take a clean sheet any day since away goals count, I think Valencia played well to minimize our goal scoring prowess. I look forward to the second leg!

It's reversible score but if they come out to attack we will defenately score away goal rule will favor one side so it's forever bus parking game Valencia if they try to win they will lose surely one they open up at the back we will heat

@ZZ2, please go to sleep because you're confused now. Earlier you said you support Barca but now you have reversed? You cannot support Madrid and Barca at the same time papa. I want to know the type of nyaope you're smoking. It's at another level.

@ZZ2, and how do you justify such a ridiculous score prediction?
