Ernesto Valverde has given his verdict after Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Tuesday.

The visitors twice went ahead in the game but were forced to hang on for a point after Sergi Roberto was sent off just after the 70-minute mark.

Valverde made loads of changes to his side and they flirted with defeat but managed to sneak a point that keeps their unbeaten La Liga run going.

”I thought that we were the better side, then came the red card and we had to change things,” he said.

”Afterwards, we didn’t have the capacity to form an attack that would have pushed them back completely, and thus the equaliser came.

”It is one more point and now we need two victories to be champions. We would like to get them, but we’ll see.”

The win moves Barcelona another step closer to the title, and another step closer to an unbeaten La Liga season. Next up is the Copa del Rey final on Saturday before a trip to Deportivo.
