Crisis all but over, FC Barcelona will be keen to continue normal service on Sunday evening when they make their trip to A Coruna, of course, that means securing all three points away from home for the first time this calendar year. On paper, that shouldn't be too tough, Deportivo la Coruna are newly-promoted and are currently struggling towards the foot of the table, yet the Riazor is a formidable place to go and Depor do have some talent amongst their ranks, no-one more familiar than former Barça star Isaac Cuenca.
With club captain Xavi Hernandez still sidelined through injury, Barça head coach Luis Enrique is missing a crucial part of his team, and some vital leadership on the field, but in Ivan Rakitic, Barcelona have a more than capable replacement while the likes of Javier Mascherano and Lionel Messi will provide leadership in their own unique ways.
After such a comfortable win over Atletico Madrid last week, the pressure is on the Blaugrana to continue building momentum and keep the pressure on league leaders, Real Madrid. Can they manage it?
