GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 3 (86 mins - Philippe Coutinho) Valencia 1. That goal should secure things for Barcelona and it's Coutinho who has found the back of the net! Dest did well to create the opportunity for the cross at the byline, he turns back and finds Coutinho in the middle and he finishes!

Garcia arrived at Barcelona from Manchester City in the summer, but the Spanish international has yet to show why the Catalan club were so keen to sign him for so long.
86'
If Barca are to challenge for the Spanish title this season, though, they will need to tighten up at the back. Araujo, Garcia and Pique have all looked vulnerable in the first few weeks of the season.
85'
Firmly struck! Gomez lines up the freekick from 25 yards out, but ter Stegen likely had that one covered. Nonetheless, the Valencia forward gave the goalkeeper something to think about.

Pique makes the clearance! That was a real opportunity for Valencia with Soler bursting to the byline. His cut back was a good one, but nobody in a white shirt could convert it!
80'
There is still a lot of work to be done for Barcelona to be back on a level footing, but they have made some progress in the way they have got rid of a number of high-earning players.
79'
Joan Laporta spoke about the financial situation over the international break and revealed Barcelona really could have gone out of business in the summer. Times were bleak.
78'
Of course, the financial situation still dominates the agenda at Barcelona. They have made progress in cutting the colossal wage bill over the summer, but more work has to be done.
