Barcelona are back to winning ways in La Liga after a hard-fought 3-1 victory over Valencia at Camp Nou on Sunday night.

Ronald Koeman

was under immense pressure just before the international break but the victory over


will temporarily ease the pressure on the out-of-favor manager.

The Blaugrana conceded an early goal, took the lead before halftime, and sealed the victory with a late goal. It was far from a great performance, but it was solid enough to guarantee all three points.

Jose Gaya

took the lead for the visitors inside five minutes when he volleyed a fierce effort from distance to give Barcelona a scare.

However, the lead was short-lived, with

Ansu Fati

scoring the equalizer and then winning the penalty from which

Memphis Depay

scored the go-ahead goal.

Valencia had the chance to score the leveler in the second half but it was

Philippe Coutinho

who rounded off the scoreline in the second half as Barcelona took a vital three points.

Barcelona are next in action on Wednesday, when they host

Dynamo Kyiv

 in the Champions League, while Valencia will have six days to recover before their game against


on Saturday.
