"We need to understand each other even better, but that will come with minutes and matches".

Under Valverde, Barca, as well as winning two league titles, have dominated the tournament with really being threatened.

The forward expected Eibar to press high so he advised Lenglet to put the ball into space near him when he was close to his marker and that successful tactic was critical in Barcelona's victory.

"You have to make sure you look after the ball throughout, you have to organise yourself well against the danger and we have done that today and we got the result". "We created a lot of chances with good passes", he added.
