Five Aside

Luis Suarez and magical Lionel Messi impress for Barcelona vs. Valencia

ESPN FC's Craig Burley compliments Barcelona's three points against an 'excellent' Valencia side.

Goals in the opening and dying seconds gave Barcelona a 2-0 win over Valencia and meant they momentarily stretched their lead to five points over Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, ahead of their rivals' game with Malaga on Saturday night.

However it was far from a vintage performance from the leaders, who were completely outplayed in the first half and looked nervy and tired after their exploits against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.

Valencia were undefeated in 10 La Liga games before this one...

Game Details

1. Messi's 400 milestone

Lionel Messi was outstanding, as he reached 400 goals for Barcelona.

His first intervention was not a huge surprise. With less than a minute on the clock, Sergio Busquets' precise ball forward sent Messi running clear between the lines. His pass was perfectly timed for Luis Suarez, who had the simple enough job of poking the ball past Valencia...

Barcelona can't afford to lose focus despite advantage over PSG

The ESPN FC crew are joined by Santi Solari to discuss Lionel Messi's continued achievements, following his 400th goal for Barca.

Despite earning a very healthy 3-1 lead at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League quartfinal first leg, Barcelona will have to give their absolute best to overcome the challenge that Paris Saint-Germain will pose at the Camp Nou on Tuesday. If any Cules out there believe a goal-fest is in the cards, they clearly need to think again.

The return of world-class striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the impressive Marco Verratti, together with Les Parisiens' determination to prove they are actually a...

Real Madrid and Barcelona continue their title pushes as they both pick up three points on the weekend.

Five thoughts gleaned from the weekend's action, as Barcelona beat Valencia and Real Madrid overcame Malaga but suffered some more injury issues.

1. Messi, not Luis Enrique, helped Barca overcome Valencia's pressure

Although Barcelona went ahead inside the first minute against Valencia through Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon, the visitors absolutely battered Barca for most of the first half -- missing a penalty, hitting the post and generally controlling the game.

Barca were...

Barcelona need Messi, Neymar and Suarez for max points vs. Valencia

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on the chances of Barcelona winning the Champions League, and whether Mesut Ozil is unappreciated by fans at Arsenal.

Barcelona face Valencia at the Camp Nou in round 32 of La Liga on Saturday. Although it is clear defeating Nuno's team will be a challenge given the visitors' current 10-game unbeaten run, the Catalans simply can't afford to let any more points slip away if they are to bring the league trophy to the team museum at the end of the season.

Achieving the victory against one of the only three top-half teams left in the Blaugranas' schedule is an absolute must. However, Valencia have become a much more...

Not so fast says Toure, according to the latest from the Daily Mail.
