Barcelona hosts Valencia on Apr. 17 at at 2.30 p.m. EST in La Liga, as they try to get back to winning ways and get their title push back on track. Will Valencia add to Barça’s woes? Click for the live stream to find out!
Where did it all go wrong! Last month Barcelona were the taste of world soccer, but a defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico and a Champions League elimination at the hands of Atletico Madrid has put a dampener on an otherwise perfect season. Can they get back to winning ways against Valencia at the Camp Nou on Apr. 17? Click down to access the live stream!
Barcelona’s front three of Brazilian god Neymar, feisty Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, and best soccer star in the world Lionel Messi have been quiet when it mattered in their big games. All of have enjoyed incredible seasons, but they’re starting to run out of steam at the business end of the year.
The pressure is on at the top of La Liga now, with their lead at the top cut to just three points from second-placed Atletico Madrid. They really cannot afford any more slip-ups if they want to retain the championship they won last year at a canter.
But Valencia won’t be easy opposition. Languishing in 14th place, they’ve endured a mixed year and are unpredictable to say the least. They beat Sevilla 2-1 in a crucial game last time out, which broke the snap of two straight defeats against Celta Vigo and Las Palmas.
Last time Valencia traveled to the Camp Nou they were destroyed by Barça in a 7-0 thrashing in the Cop del Rey back in February. They will want to avoid a performance like that again this time round!
Barcelona should return to winning ways in this one, but it won’t be easy against an improving Valencia team. However, you can’t keep a good Barça team down and Leo, Neymar and Luis will be difficult to keep quiet.
