Luis Suárez celebrates his first-minute goal against Valencia at Camp Nou on Saturday 18 April 2015. / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

  • Luis Suárez has scored 19 goals in 15 different games. FC Barcelona have won all of them.
  • The Uruguayan specialises in games against big teams, having scored against Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Valencia, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, among others.
  • Only six starters against PSG also started against Valencia: Ter Stegen, Montoya, Alba, Rakitic, and Iniesta did not start on Saturday.
  • Camp Nou had its second best crowd of the season, with 92,915 spectators. Only the 98,760 who came to El Clásico were higher.
  • Jordi Alba did not play a single minute. The wing-back hadn't been kept out due to coach's decision since Barça's 5–0 win over Levante on 15 February. He did, however, miss matches versus Celta and Almería due to injury and was suspended for Eibar.
  • The team now have 34 points in the second half of the season. In the first half, through the same number of games they had just 31.
  • Despite the evenly-matched encounter, FC Barcelona doubled Valencia in passes, 698331.
  • Dani Alves was one of the main protagonists on Saturday. He led Barça with 89 touches, 12 recovered balls, and, less fortunately, 17 turnovers.

    Completed passes are in green; turnovers are in red; recovered balls are in yellow.
