Barcelona midfielder Busquets: No positives from Levante defeat

Valverde

Valverde

That followed their Champions League capitulation in Rome, leaving a bitter taste despite the satisfaction of wresting the Spanish title back from Real Madrid and trouncing Sevilla in the King's Cup final.

"It was not a good day for us".

Do you think Valverde is to blame for Barca's defeat on Sunday?

Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Boateng became the third player to score a hat-trick in the history of Levante and the first as an African at the club.

The Barca boss believes Levante are now the best team in La Liga, having won eight of their last 10 matches to avoid relegation.

"It was a very hard game, it was very open and we came back and nearly pulled it off but now it's over".

"We feel bad. Of course, we wanted to win the league first of all and after we did that we wanted to end the season unbeaten". It was a mystery why Valverde made so many changes.

Less than two minutes after Kucherov's goal, Tampa Bay made it 3-0 when defenseman Victor Hedman scored off a wrist shot. Coach Barry Trotz said Backstrom was a game-time decision before each of the games in the conference final.

"I feel very angry but I have to look forwards, because what makes me angry isn't going to give me solutions", said Valverde. Levante have played well with freedom and we haven't been able to control them.

"I can't see them getting any closer (to going a season unbeaten)".

Before the 3-0 quarterfinal second-leg defeat by AS Roma there was a genuine belief Barca could win the treble, and after licking their wounds following that disappointment the focus was switched to finishing the season unbeaten.

"It doesn't tarnish what we have achieved that we won't finish unbeaten", Busquets told beIN Sports.

"Mina? You see the result, we conceded a few goals and people suddenly think the defenders had a disgusting game".

Mina has featured just six times since arriving from Palmeiras in January, with the Colombian blamed by sections of the Spanish media after Barcelona conceded five goals for the first time since December 2003 in La Liga.

Barcelona may never get a better chance of completing a full La Liga season unbeaten, says Terry Gibson.
