Barcelona v Valencia - as it happened
FT: Barcelona 5-2 Valencia!! Al over here in an easy win for Barca. Fati and de Jong scored early on for Barca before Gameiro got back into the game. Pique then took advantage of a Cillessen error before Suarez added two more. Gomez got a mere consolation right at the death. Celades couldn't get off to a winning start as Valencia start. That's all from us. Thanks for your company and hope to see you again soon!
5-2!!!! Maxi Gomez!!!! Wass crosses from this near side, Semedo heads straight to Gaya, he passes to Cheryshev and Maxi Gomez hits home right on full time! And that's that!

Both teams are happy for this to end now. I don't there will be much injury time.
Cheryshev booked for a foul.
And it's five!!! Suarez makes it 5-1!!! Griezmann gets the assist and beats Cillessen at the near post! Suarez gave it to Raktic first, but his shot was blocked and then Valencia cleared off the line before Griezmann fed Suarez.
