Barcelona made La Liga history on Saturday as they beat Valencia 2-1 at Camp Nou to make it 39 games unbeaten in the competition - a new record.

Luis Suarez sent the hosts on their way, a Samuel Umtiti header made it 2-0 and Barca survived a nervy finish after Dani Parejo pulled one back late on from the penalty spot.

It’s been a super tough week for Barcelona but this is still a pretty impressive achievement that deserves real respect and will take some beating.

It also means that with just six La Liga games left to play Barcelona are still on target to go through the league season unbeaten - something that’s not been managed yet.

Can they do it?
