Soccer – Focus of Barca pleases Valverde

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde believes his players are showing high-quality focus in European matches this season. Barca won 5-1 at home to Lyon to secure their place in the last eight of the Champions League, with Valverde hoping to mastermind a first success since 2015. He told reporters: "We are very focused in the Champions League this year, but we know how difficult it is and the level of our rivals is very high. "It is impossible to single one side out (as the strongest opponent), as each side deserves to be in the quarter finals. "Whichever team we get, it will be complicated to progress." Barcelona have been eliminated at the quarter-final stage of the Champions League in each of the last three seasons, being knocked out by Atletico Madrid, Juventus and AS Roma. They are available at 10/3 with bet365 to win the Champions League this season.
