BARCELONA---With strikers Ney-
mar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi
in spectacular form, Barcelona visits
Valencia tomorrow aiming to keep a
winning streak going and extend its
lead of the Spanish league.
Neymar leads La Liga with 14 goals
through 13 rounds, while Suarez is
second with 12 goals after scoring in
his last six league matches.
Messi, meanwhile, seems to be back
up to full speed after a two-month
layoff with three goals in three appear-
All that adds up to a stiff challenge
for a Valencia side under interim man-
ager Salvador Gonzalez, as it awaits
the arrival of former Manchester Unit-
ed player Gary Neville to take over.
Neville was to be presented late yes-
terday, and Valencia says he will offi-
cially start his tenure on Sunday.
Barcelona has won six straight
league games by the combined score
of 21-3, including a 4-0 win at Real
Madrid, and hasn't conceded a goal
in the last four rounds.
"We are happy with the numbers,
but there are always things we can
improve," Suarez said. "We are realists,
and we know that in football you never
know what can happen."
The strong run by Luis Enrique's
side has given the defending cham-
pions a four-point lead over second-
place Atletico Madrid, with Madrid
another two points behind in third.

"We know the difficulty of playing
Barcelona," Valencia defender Jose
Gaya said. "In Mestalla we can
compete, and we have to play our
kind of match while knowing that
Barcelona is a great team."

his first game back at the Santiago

BARCELONA---While last season's
finalist Athletic Bilbao started its Copa
del Rey campaign with a win, three
other topflight clubs lost at second-
division opponents in the opening leg
of the round of 32 yesterday.
Bilbao earned a 2-0 win at third-divi-
sion club Linense from first-half goals
by little-used striker Kike Sola and
defender Aymeric Laporte.
Outplayed until after halftime, the
hosts mustered four good scoring chances
in the second half, but goalkeeper Iago
Herrerin saved its best opportunity when
Ismael Flores fired a shot from close
range with four minutes to play.
Bilbao, second all time with 23 cups,
lost in last season's final when Barcelona
won its record 27th cup. Villarreal, Malaga
and Eibar will all have to fight back with
wins in two weeks to avoid early exits.
