Barcelona extended their winless streak to four league games after drawing 1-1 with Valencia away at the Mestalla on Sunday. Defender Ezequiel Garay put Barcelona on the backfoot in the second minute but Leo Messi struck midway through the first half to even the game. Barca's manager Ernesto Valverde rued the dropped points but praised Valencia for their organisation. «They started very well... Еще and they scored right at the start. We had 5 or 10 minutes where they had good counters and used that goal in their favour. After the goal Messi scored, we had more opportunities but they defended very well. We couldn't find the killer ball,» he said.
