Alba hails 'important' Barca win

By Football News



Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has declared his side's 3-1 win over Celta Vigo as an important one for the high-flying club.

The Spain full-back revealed his delight at scoring the final goal in Barca's 3-1 victory at Camp Nou, and admitted he was impressed with the attacking threat of Paco Herrera's side.

"It was an important win for us," he told reporters after the match. "I am extremely happy with my goal.

"Celta were dangerous in the first-half, especially on the counterattack, but I think in the second-half we controlled the game a lot better."

The former Valencia man sealed the points in the second period to ensure Tito Vilanova's side remain top of La Liga, and maintained their unbeaten domestic run this season.
