FC Barcelona take on Miroslav Djukic's Real Valladolid tonight in their first game of the season under temporary new management team, Jordi Roura and Aureli Altimira. Even without Adriano Correia and Alex Song who miss out through injury, Barcelona are virtually at full-strength and are expected to maintain their nine point lead with a victory. Lionel Messi is in terrific form after all, and he alone has scored three more goals than the entire Real Valladolid squad! To say we have never seen anything like the Argentine would be an understatement.
However, Valladolid have been impressive at home and took Real Madrid to the limit just two short weeks ago. Maybe they are going to go one better and pull off an upset against the Blaugrana? Or maybe Barcelona will record their ninth successive away win? Whatever your opinion, vote in our poll and comment with prediction below to be in with a chance of winning a Barca-related prize at the season end. Best of luck!
