But it did get a little tetchy late for the home side after Dani Parejo converted a penalty kick in the 87th minute.

Mikel Oyarzabal scored his third goal in two matches to give Real Sociedad a 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Las Palmas, while Miguel Guerrero gave Leganes a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo.

The result temporarily moves the Catalans 14 points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, with only six matches left to play. Soler played in Rodrigo Moreno but Ter Stegen made up for his mistake by pushing the shot onto the bar.

Club-record signing Coutinho then delivered an outswinging corner from which Samuel Umtiti headed in Barca's second in the 51st minute, shortly after Gerard Pique had saved Umtiti's blushes by clearing a shot from Valencia forward Santi Mina off the line following a slip by the France defender.

Valencia's belief was dwindling and two acrobatic volleys, from Lionel Messi and then Andres Iniesta, nearly added a spectacular third, as the first flew just over and the second was parried by Neto.

Valencia coach Marcelino is wary of a backlash against Barcelona.


"The most important thing was the 1-0, knowing the mood wasn't good, and we saw how it finished".

"We know it's been a tough week but a win today was a must". "The public can be angry about the Champions League, like us, but this is a recognition of the great season we are having in the league, which now seems to have been forgotten".

Barca went on to end the season with seven straight wins, narrowly missing out on the title to Madrid before Valverde replaced Luis Enrique in the summer.

Rivaldo, who won the Champions League for the first time a year after leaving Barca for AC Milan, was saddened to see his old club crash out but believes the game will benefit.

Barca have reached the Copa del Rey final, where they face Sevilla next Saturday in Madrid, a game which could see the Catalans come closer to a domestic double.
