Martino rues unexplainable Barca display
Feb 01, 2014 3:45 PM EST
Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino admitted he has no explanation for his side's lacklustre performance in their 3-2 defeat by Valencia.
The La Liga champions looked rampant for the first 30 minutes of Saturday's game as Alexis Sanchez broke the deadlock after seven minutes and Barca then spurned numerous other opportunities before Dani Parejo equalised against the run of play at Camp Nou.
The visitors went ahead early in the second half through Pablo Piatti, only for Lionel Messi to level from the penalty spot.
Paco Alcacer netted the winner after good play by Sofiane Feghouli in the 59th minute, ending Barca's 31-match unbeaten run at home in the league.
