- Barcelona then enters the semifinals of the Champions League against Liverpool
Ernesto Valverde is certain that Barcelona will enter the semi-final of the Champions League against Liverpool with the title of the La Liga packed.

Ernesto Valverde is convinced that Barcelona will soon secure the La Liga title
Barcelona beat Alaves on Tuesday 2-0 and could even become champion on Wednesday evening
However, Valverde does not want to invoke a favor.
& # 39; It is very important that we get the three points we need this weekend, but we have to stay focused & # 39 ;, Valverde said after Barcelona beat Alaves.
& # 39; Tonight's victory has left us on the edge of the title, which brings enormous joy after all those months of chasing.
& # 39; It happens when it happens. I'm just happy to be a champion again.
& # 39; Atletico will fight to the end and I will welcome the title when, or so, it comes. & # 39;
Sealing the title would mean that important men such as Lionel Messi could rest between Liverpool games
In addition to a boost in morale, league glory would also offer Valverde the opportunity to let players rest between the two legs of the semi-final with Liverpool.
The men of Jurgen Klopp are wrapped in an exciting title race with Manchester City and will play Newcastle on Saturday 4 May.
