With a home win over Celta Vigo tonight, FC Barcelona can place title rivals Real and Atletico Madrid under significant pressure by regaining top spot in La Liga ahead of their respective matches against Sevilla and Granada. Of course, all things being equal, one would expect Barcelona to remain at least one point off top spot by the end of the night, but as long as the Blaugrana can maintain their momentum and keep pace, all will be well in Catalunya.
After such an impressive and hard-fought 4-3 El Clasico win over eternal rivals Real Madrid, deep in enemy territory at the Santiago Bernabeu, there is a feelgood atmosphere around the club once again. The media are no longer criticising head coach Gerardo Martino while the rumours of a rift between the club and superstar striker Lionel Messi have diffused after the Argentine's recent upturn in form. It's a good time to be a Culé, and we're all hoping that we can say the same after tonight's match.
Barcelona are expected to win, and win comfortably against Luis Enrique's midtable Celta Vigo outfit. Anything less would probably be seen as a disaster -- and after working so hard to rebuild their reputation and regain a foothold in the title race, it would be devastating to see Barça throw it away against lesser opposition. With that in mind, expect a professional performance from the team -- and with any luck, that big win will materialise. Predict the score of tonight's match by commenting with your score below.
