Arda Turan praises ‘outstanding’ Barcelona performance following 7-0 Valencia win

Barcelona team news

Barcelona humiliated Gary Neville’s Valencia side by a 7-0 scoreline at the Camp Nou in the Spanish Cup semi-final first-leg tie yesterday.

Barca boss gave Arda Turan his sixth start since making his debut in the 4-1 victory over Espanyol last month.

Turan praised his teammates describing the Barcelona side as being comprised of ‘great’ players in his post-match tweet.


Barcelona are now unbeaten in their last 28 games and have won all nine since Turan made his debut for the reigning Copa del Rey champions.

It is hard to argue with Turan calling his side outstanding considering they have scored an incredible 32 goals in their last nine games and have conceded just five times.

Turan provided his third Barcelona assist setting up Luis Suarez with the seventh and final goal.

The bearded winger has now provided as many assists in his first eight games for Barcelona as he did in his last 32 for former side Atletico Madrid.
