In that sense, I have to congratulate the players because it's not easy after the huge disappointment they had.
Parejo picked himself up to score the spot-kick, squeezing the ball beneath Ter Stegen's body to set up an unexpected tense finale.
Coutinho was again key as Barca doubled their advantage. We needed to step it up today. The blaugrana's captain talked to Spanish media at the end of yesterday's home win against Valencia revealing to have already made a decision about his future. The striker used one touch of his right boot to slot a low shot past goalkeeper Neto for his 23rd goal in the competition this season.
MF Sergio Busquets, 6 - Barca's anchor looked to be feeling the after-effects of his foot injury and would probably have rested had Ivan Rakitic not been unavailable, but he still managed to exert control and balance from his base in midfield and got forward occasionally. Suarez finished his run with a quick shot into a very narrow angle, beating Valencia keeper Neto in the 15th minute.
"In five and a half years there has been a lot of work done here", said manager Sean Dyche. The Brazilian sent in a nifty pass with the side of his boot, leading Suarez to the near post.
MF Ousmane Dembele, N/R - Replaced Coutinho with 13 minutes left but had little joy in attack and then showed his inexperience by conceding the penalty by hauling over Jose Luis Gaya on the left hand side of the box when he posed no goal threat.
It's not insane to think Burnley could climb into sixth and get an automatic space in the UEL, either. It was Suarez's 23rd goal of the league campaign, pulling even with Cristiano Ronaldo and six back of league-leader Lionel Messi.
It is believed that the 33-year-old has received a number of offers from the Chinese Super League, although.
Their current unbeaten run started last April when Luis Enrique's side beat Real Sociedad 3-2 having lost the week before against Malaga. Their support has been essential for winning.
