Levante wins 5-4 to end Barca's bid for unbeaten Liga season

Valverde

The Barca boss believes Levante are now the best team in La Liga, having won eight of their last 10 matches to avoid relegation.

Led by Emmanuel Boateng's hat trick and two more goals from Enis Bardhi, Levante was heading toward a historic rout of the recently crowned champions when the hosts built a 5-1 advantage after 56 minutes.

"We haven't been solid, every time they attacked they scored", Valverde said.

"We are not feeling good, we really wanted to end the season without losing but we had a very hard game against a highly motivated team and when you concede five goals, you don't deserve to win", Coutinho told reporters.

"We are angry not to have come through this game and not to have the opportunity to finish unbeaten", Valverde said."But in a season some matches go your way and some don't". "Yerry Mina showed personality at certain moments of the match and I haven't seen him make a mistake. It's come in the 37th game, so it hurts to lose it now, but it could have come in the first, third or 14th game", Valverde said.

Skipper Andres Iniesta blamed a lack of organisation.

Ex-Trinidad and Tobago defender Jlloyd Samuel dies at 37
The 37-year-old died when his Range Rover collided with a van in High Legh, Cheshire Police have said. The thoughts of everyone at the72 are with the friends and family of Jloyd Samuel at this time.

Barcelona may never get a better chance of completing a full La Liga season unbeaten, says Terry Gibson.

"It's not the most important thing this season - it just wasn't to be". This was especially clear at the beginning of the second half.

That followed their Champions League capitulation in Rome, leaving a bitter taste despite the satisfaction of wresting the Spanish title back from Real Madrid and trouncing Sevilla in the King's Cup final.

"With every moment that it approaches, everything becomes that little bit more hard", the midfielder added.

Valverde's team last lost a Spanish topflight game on April 8, 2017 against Malaga at La Rosaleda.

"I hope it will be a nice memory for me after so long".
