Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde believes his side are returning to form after their 1-0 win over Real Valladolid at the Camp Nou on Saturday. He did acknowledge that the Blaugrana were not at their best, relying on a Lionel Messi penalty to squeeze past the relegation strugglers. «Sometimes you won't be brilliant in every game but there are four important matches coming up — it seems like a... Еще stone around our necks — but I will get to the first game and then the second and we will take it step by step,» Valverde told the post-match press conference. «I see the team as being ready to give their best now and get back to that,» he added in response to a journalist's question. Top-of-the-table Barcelona are now seven points clear of Atletico Madrid, who won 1-0 at Rayo Vallecano earlier on Saturday. Real Madrid are third, two points behind city rivals Atletico, and play their game in hand on Sunday against Girona.
