Valencia beat Barcelona 2-0

Baku, January 26, AZERTAC

Quique Setien suffered his first defeat as Barcelona boss as Valencia secured a 2-0 win at Mestalla to preserve their unbeaten home record in La Liga this season, according to Sky Sports.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen produced a string of top saves to keep Barcelona in the game in the first half, denying Maxi Gomez from the penalty spot after Gerard Pique had brought down Jose Gaya in the area, before tipping another Gomez shot onto the bar.

But Valencia took the game away from them after the break, drawing first blood three minutes into the second half thanks to a Jordi Alba own goal, before Gomez made the points safe 13 minutes before the end.

Barcelona remain top of the table but could be overtaken when second-placed Real Madrid take on Valladolid on Sunday.
