Barca draw with Vigo to edge closer to La Liga title

Speaking to the official website after the game, manager Ernesto Valverde insisted that the team cannot lose focus with an important Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on Saturday a key fixture for the club.

"There will be change as I think the team needs it", said Valverde at a press conference covered by the club's website,

La Liga: Deportivo La Coruna 0 drew with Sevilla 0; Celta Vigo 2 (Castro 45, Aspas 82) drew with Barcelona 2 (Dembele 36, Alcacer 64); Villarreal 2 (Vţctor Ruiz 42, Bacca 55) bt Leganes 1 (Brasanac 82).

It will also be interesting to see if young French winger Ousmane Dembele, who conceded a penalty against Valencia on Saturday, will get a chance or whether someone like Denis Suarez or even Paco Alcacer could force their way into the side.

Aspas it was, who tapped home to share the spoils and gain a good point for the home side, who have not lost to Barca in the league this season.

"The other time we came here, in the Copa, we also made many changes", said the coach post-match.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

Speaking at a press conference reported by ABC Internacional, Unzue said: "We can not set out to draw, we need to win. We were in control of the game at 2-1 up, but then the red card and they threw themselves at us", Valverde told reporters.

"It is one more point and now we need two victories to be champions".

'Celta will be tough, especially because (Celta Coach, Juan Carlos) Unzue knows our players and he knows how to do damage to this team, which will be an advantage for them. But we were able to create lots of chances and we were on top in the final minutes.

The key changes could come up front as Valverde considers whether to rest Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

With the Sevilla clash in mind, Barcelona may make several alterations to their side for the Celta game, although they will still be determined to prevail and keep their unbeaten run intact.
