Andres Iniesta talks about his future at Barcelona after record victory

Barcelona took a step towards getting over their disastrous Champions League elimination by beating third-placed Valencia 2-1 on Saturday, setting a league record of 39 games unbeaten in the process and moving to within seven points of lifting the title.

Valencia scored an 87th-minute consolation goal through Daniel Parejo's penalty after substitute Ousmane Dembele had tripped Jose Gaya in the box, but Barca hung on to break a 38-year record.

Parejo scores from the spot on 87′.

Coutinho was well wide with an effort from distance ahead of a scorcher on the volley from Messi that was teed up by Sergio Busquets.

There is no doubt Barca's shock defeat in Italy still lingers, and may still, even if the Catalans secure the first part of an expected domestic double by winning the Copa del Rey next weekend. And we've come away with three points.

"We have to look forward now". This could partly be down to injury, but the French winger has been fit since February and yet has barely featured for Barcelona since returning from injury. He wasn't bad, like he was midweek in Rome, but he wasn't good either. He beat a busy Ter Stegen, but not Pique, who cleared off the line.

Although the lack of Champions League soccer eases the schedule slightly for Barca, there's still so much to play for that the current fitness of the starting squad is concerning.
