LaLiga: Valverde speaks ahead of Real Madrid, Barcelona clash



Barcelona boss, Ernesto Valverde has spoken ahead of next weekend clash with Real Madrid after his side recorded a 4-0 win against Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.

Valverde rejected suggestions that next Saturday’s Clasico away to Real Madrid could prove decisive in the race to win La Liga.

Zinedine Zidane’s side has struggled in the first half of 2017-18 and sit fourth in the table, 11 points behind leaders Barca.

But Valverde talked down the significance of the eagerly anticipated clash.

“I don’t think a Clasico victory will give us the title,” he told a news conference.

“Atletico are only six points behind. What we know is that this is a long competition, nobody will decide anything at this point.

“We’re heading into the game happy.

“We have a week of preparation left and are confident.

“It’s a tough game against a huge rival, but we’re eager to face them,” he added.
