Barcelona’s victory over Girona on Sunday means it’s now eight La Liga wins in a row for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

Goals from Nelson Semedo and Lionel Messi were enough to give Barcelona all three points and make it their best ever run under Valverde.

The victory also means Barcelona restore their five-point lead at the top of La Liga after Atletico Madrid closed the gap on Saturday with a 2-0 win over Getafe.

Barcelona’s next La Liga fixture is at the Camp Nou on Saturday against Valencia, and they’ll be favourites to extend their winning run to nine against Los Che.
