Full time, Barcelona 1-0 Valencia.

Another very close match between last year's second and third-place teams in La Liga.

A golazo from Adriano ended up being the winner, but the final score hardly tells the whole story.

Valencia will feel they could have managed a draw at Camp Nou and really played well enough to deserve one, but play in the final third left them wanting.

Alex Song and Aly Cissokho saw their first action in La Liga. How did they do? Are they proving to be worth their salt yet?

After the match, the standings show that La Blaugrana and Los Che are worlds apart. Valencia sits in 17th place while Barcelona is atop the tables and five points ahead of Real Madrid.

But is the disparity really that great? Are Barcelona truly head and soldiers above their matchday three opponents?

Read on to discuss these issues and more as we review Barcelona's 1-0 victory over Valencia.
