Spanish Media Critics Ignoring Barcelona’s Recent Record

Spanish Media Critics Ignoring Barcelona’s Recent Record

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez feels that much hype and focus has been made on the exit of Barcelona by the hands of Roma from the Champions League.

Barcelona are not getting enough credit for their La Liga campaign, says Suarez

Spain’s top flight team has taken yet another step towards the La Liga title on Saturday thanks to a 2-1 win over Valencia at the Camp Nou.

The win proved to be a memorable one as the Catalans made it a record-breaking 39 games without defeat and moved 14 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid, having played a game more.

The win was crucial for the entire team after their recent collapse in the Champions League, where they lost 3-0 at Roma and were knocked out from the quarter-final stage on away goals.

Suarez opened the scoring for the Catalans before Samuel Umtiti’s header secured the win. Daniel Parejo’s spot kick goal reduced the difference, but it was too little too late for Valencia.

When the Uruguay striker was interviewed, he made it clear that the reaction of some fans and press seems that winning the domestic title does not matter.

"Statistics are there to be broken. We knew the fans could be angry, but we're hurting, too. It seems like there's no merit to winning the league, now," he told beIN SPORTS.

"We've tried to confirm the great league season we're having after the blow of the other day. We were able to get the three points, which is the most important thing.

"It's one more step to completing the objective. It's a good lead and we have to think about the game on Tuesday [against Celta Vigo].

"The most important thing was the 1-0, knowing the mood wasn't good, and we saw how it finished."
