Good DayVÃÂctor ValdÃÂ©sÃ¢ÂÂIt was him and 10 others,Ã¢ÂÂ beamed Pep Guardiola as he patted the panting goal-conceding guardian on the head after BarcelonaÃ¢ÂÂs gritty, grinding win over Athletic Bilbao. It was the first clean sheet for ValdÃÂ©s in the league this season, and thatÃ¢ÂÂs good cause for scenes of celebration in Catalunya where the Camp Nou crazies have been a little concerned at the tendency for opposition players to whack the ball hopefully towards goal and get onto the score sheet seconds later. Ã¢ÂÂBarÃÂ§a have characterÃ¢ÂÂ was the praise from El Pais on a performance which was the blueprint on how to overcome Athletic - elbows and energy. The one downside, writes the still-glaring Lluis MascarÃÂ³ in Sport, is how Barcelona look without Messi or Xavi on the pitch. Ã¢ÂÂWithout them, BarÃÂ§a lose the ability to unbalance. They lack depth and improvisation,Ã¢ÂÂ complained the columnist.
