Barcelona bounced back from a disappointing continental display to beat Champions League spot chasers Valencia 2-1 at Camp Nou in a La Liga week 32 fixture on Saturday and end Los Che's five-game winning streak.Roma pulled off a sensational second-leg comeback to beat Barcelona 3-0 and reach the Champions League semi-finals on away goals. The Catalans were heavy favourites to progress after a 4-1 first-leg win but fell apart to Roma's brilliant showing.GOALSBarcelona led Valencia 1-0 at half-time thanks to Luis Suarez's 23rd League goal, but Los Che were unlucky to be trailing having created a few real chances before the break.Samuel Umtiti extended Barcelona's lead, five minutes into the second period when he rose highest from the centre of the box head Philippe Coutinho's cross from a corner into the bottom right corner.The home side saw their lead halved after substitute Ousmane Dembele hacked down Andreas Pereira in the area just after the winger put a cross in. Valencia captain Dani Parejo stepped up and took the penalty. Marc-Andre ter Stegen guessed right but somehow the ball squirmed under him and into the net.
