Barca beat Valencia to extend record unbeaten run to 39

BARCELONA, Spain: Barcelona has set a new La Liga record by extending their unbeaten run to 39 games with a 2-1 victory over Valencia on Saturday. 

Luis Suarez and Samuel Umtiti scored as Barca passed the 38 matches Real Sociedad managed without defeat between 1979 and 1980.

Dani Parejo pulled one back for Valencia with an 87th-minute penalty. 

The win at the Camp Nou eased fears that Tuesday's Champions League collapse against Roma could affect Barcelona's march to the league title.

Ernesto Valverde's side are now 14 points clear at the top of the table. 

Valencia stay third, one point ahead of Real Madrid, who are also in action on Sunday, away to Malaga.
