The Day 21 has finished for the FC Barcelona, and has done it with the first trip of the era Quique Setién. To the Catalans no gave them at all well the afternoon of the Saturday and this took advantage of it Valencia, that in spite of another stellar performance of Marc-André ter Stegen achieved to demolish the Barcelona wall and do with the three points thanks to a doublet of Maxi Gómez, that materialised an advantage sobradamente deserved.
Mestalla Was a challenge complicated for the culés, that in his more serious examination with the new technician were shipwrecked without remedy by fault of his lagoons in defence and in attack. The preparador cántabró still has not achieved to solve the fragility of the retaguardia and his problems have gone to more because it has added the offensive jam, since the team is accusing in excess the absence of a specialist in the forward like Luis Suárez and since it lost to his reference has remained blunt. With the German and Leo Messi is not sufficient.
By his part, the Seville has taken advantage of for recortar distance with the leader and put third, although still to five points of the valid champion. The hispalenses did not fail in front of the Granada in Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, and with the targets of Luuk of Jong and Nolito in the first time consolidated his place in the zone Champions, that is very tightened because Getafe or the own Valencia come stepping strong.

Also tendra that take a step forward an Athletic hurt after the elimination of the Glass of Rey, and from the 12:00 it will look for the pardon of his fans in a derbi in front of the Leganés. With Diego Simeone in the sight, the rojiblancos expect to go back to strike in Wanda Metropolitan to the colista, to the one who already won in Butarque does some months (0-1). The 'colchoneros' depend on the three points to recover his place in the podium, now in hands of the men of Julen Lopetegui.
