Valladolid's hopes of a place in Europe are all but ended after they lost 2-1 at already crowned league champions Barcelona on Sunday. It was a wet but festive night at the Nou Camp, with title celebrations held back until after the final whistle, and as usual Barça dominated the play for a large majority of the match. Villa and Piqué both tried their luck early on, and midway through the first half Xavi intercepted a bad clearance in midfield and put Pedro through for him to score the opener. With three minutes to go to the break, ex Barça B defender Marc Valiente turned Xavi's corner in to his own net, and after the restart Jaime had to be at his best to save from Pedro, Montoya and Villa. Víctor Pérez did get a late consolation from the penalty spot after Montoya brought down Manucho, but Vilanova's side had no problems taking another three points which keeps them on track for the only objective left to them, match the record 100 points that Real Madrid clocked up last season.
