Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde praise his team after a comeback win at Rayo Vallecano

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde was happy with the performance his team as the Spainish Champions displayed a great comeback win at Rayo Vallecano. Barcelona shocked their hosts with two late goals as they grabbed a 3-2 victory to extend their lead at the top of La Liga.

Barcelona took an early lead through Luis Suarez but looked to be heading for defeat when efforts from Jose Pozo and Alvaro Garcia either side of half-time turned the game on its head.

Ousmane Dembele equalised with three minutes remaining and then Suarez got his second goal of the game in the final minute to seal a dramatic comeback.
Valverde admitted his side had been disjointed at time in the game but was happy to take the three points whichever way they came.

Valverde stated in club official website:
“I was happy with the victory. Our attitude was always the same, to go for it, and that is what gave us the win.

“We started well, but then we lacked depth. We had many problems with our opponents and once they scored, they grew in confidence.

“In the end we had to go for it, trying to find finishes from within the area, and if that couldn’t be achieved, trying another way. The important thing is the character of this team.”
