Barcelona have got back to winning ways on their return from the international break as they sealed a 3-1 victory over Valencia at the Camp Nou.
Goals from the returning Ansu Fati and Dutch star Memphis Depay set the home side on course for the win before substitute Philippe Coutinho wrapped up all three points in the final minutes.
La Blaugrana endured a mixed run of form heading into the international break with boss Ronald Koeman finding himself under increasing pressure in Catalonia.
However, his players turned in a timely winning performance against Los Che, with the returning Ansu Fati right at the heart of it for Koeman.
The Spanish international cancelled out Jose Luis Gaya’s opener, with a spectacular first goal in over a year to bring Barcelona level, before winning a penalty to allow Memphis Depay to edge them in front.
Fati did have a chance to make the game safe after the restart, only to be denied by a superb Jasper Cillessen save late on, but in the end substitute Philippe Coutinho wrapped up the win in the final minutes.
Koeman’s side now face Dynamo Kyiv in midweek Champions League action with Valencia back in action against Real Mallorca next weekend.
