Vermaelen starts against Valencia with Pique banned — Barcelona team news

27 Noviembre 2017

It has to be seen! VAR? It was very clear.

"FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi signed on Saturday morning a new contract that will keep the Argentine superstar at the Club through the 2020-21 season", a statement from Barca said, alongside a photograph of Messi signing the deal.

"VAR is something which will help football and will stop moments like this happening", added Alba.

In contrast to recent years where Lim's recruitment has been questioned for his closeness to Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes, the majority of Valencia's seven new signings after another summer clearout have shone.

The rest of the line-up is as expected, with Nelson Semedo, Umtiti and Jordi Alba joining Vermaelen on the back line. Furthermore, their goal difference of 21 is almost the same as that of Real and Atletico combined.

Valencia take on Barcelona on Sunday, November 26. "We're all affected by the refs".

So yes, for all intents and purposes, Valencia are Barcelona's sole title challengers. "We were with his family the day before in the wake and they transmitted to us just how much this club meant to him".

Malaga also had a goal controversially ruled out as Real again failed to convince against a side in the relegation zone.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi was denied a goal by a lack of goal-line technology in his side's LaLiga clash at Valencia.

The imperious form showed by Barcelona is contrary to what was predicted following Neymar's unceremonious departure, and in complete contrast to what the league leaders displayed in August, when a rampant Real Madrid comfortably outdid them home and away in the Super Cup.

Simone Zaza dragged a shot just wide and Goncalo Guedes finally tested Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the first time from a narrow angle 58 minutes in.

He leads the scoring charts in La Liga with 12 goals and on Friday picked up the 2017 European Sports Media Golden Shoe for being the top scorer in a domestic league last season with 37 goals.
