Valverde fielded an nearly unrecognizable starting 11 on Saturday in a 0-0 draw at Huesca, the Spanish league's bottom team.

Valverde was not about to make the same mistake again, leaving talisman Lionel Messi back in Barcelona along with Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic, while Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique were suspended.

"Suarez [came up to me] after the game as well".

In their place, Valverde gave playing time to several young players.

Defender Jean-Clair Todibo and 20-year-old Senegal worldwide Moussa Wague were handed first-team debuts, with midfielder Riqui Puig and Jeison Murillo also coming in for starts.

The Italy worldwide became the youngest player to score in four consecutive Serie A matches, having scored six in as many games, and played in just eight this season. They looked dominant in the midfield and were pressing Barcelona in the first half.

"Because anyway in the league we only need one point if Napoli wins them all, if they don't, we don't even need a point".

With the league title seemingly locked up with only six rounds left, Valverde put his focus on United's visit on Tuesday.

The Barcelona manager has given an update on the injury to his talisman in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford. Let us know in the comments section below.

The youthful Barca started slow in the second half, with Huesca causing a few nervy moments but it was well dealt with in the end. "For the season we've had, it's already a miracle that we're here", said Dzeko of their Champions League challenge.

He has made 10 changes from the side which beat Manchester United in midweek, with Ousmane Dembele making his first start since returning from a hamstring injury.

This could have been Huesca's flawless chance at avoiding relegation, as today's Barcelona squad was not at their best.

The price was two points dropped and Atletico capitalised, beating Celta Vigo 2-0 thanks to a thundering Antoine Griezmann free-kick and a cool finish from Alvaro Morata.

"But, after the game we just had a brief chat, shook and hands and he said "yeah, it was an accident".
