Valverde Fires Barca Warning

Valverde Fires Barca Warning

Ernesto Valverde has warned Barcelona have much work to do after being held to a goalless draw against Lyon.

The Champions League last-16 first-leg clash failed to produce a goal despite Barca having 25 shots, and the result probably just favours the French side ahead of the Nou Camp return.

Valverde praised his side and admitted it had been one of those nights as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Phillipe Coutinho also missed good chances.

“I do not think it is very easy to win away from home in the Champions League,” Valverde told reporters after the game. “We have absolutely dominated and they have not lost any match in this competition so far this season.

“Lyon had chances in the beginning but we came back well and we controlled the game until the end. “We have created a lot of chances, but football is a matter of success and today we have not had it. The tie is in the air, 0-0 is a dangerous result, we will not kid ourselves.”
