Barcelona vs. Real Valladolid: La Liga Live Score, Highlights and Recap

Samuel Marsden@@samuelmarsdenFeatured ColumnistMay 19, 2013

As the rain lashed down on a half-full Camp Nou, Barcelona kept alive their hopes of reaching 100 points -- having clinched La Liga last weekend.

Pedro Rodriguez, with his ninth goal of the season, gave La Blaugrana a first half lead. Captain for the night Xavi Hernandez setting him free to fire through Jaime's legs.

Barca had two before the break. La Masia graduate and current Real Valladolid defender, Marc Valiente, uncomfortably turning a corner into his own net.

The game continued without pace and without much atmosphere, but with lots of Barcelona possession.

A third goal never came -- Jaime making several decent stops -- but even Victor Perez's late penalty never really set the alarm bells ringing, as Barcelona ran out 2-1 winners.
