The Madrid derby ends in a draw and left Barcelona leading the league with 11 points, and with seven matches left there are a maximum of 21 points left on the table this season.
Valverde will be glad that both teams played out a draw, and he has overseen a near perfect debut campaign at the Camp Nou, and his Barcelona side now need just 10 points to secure the league.
Barcelona already had a head to head advantage over the Rojiblancos after playing out a 1-1 draw at Wanda Metropolitano and beating them 1-0 in the second leg at the Camp Nou.
There is a very significant chance that it could be confirmed before the Clasico on Matchday 36.
