On paper, this one is a mismatch as the first La Liga fixture of the weekend pits the league leaders, FC Barcelona, up against rock-bottom Cordoba CF who need to win keep their ludicrously slim hopes of avoiding relegation alive, at least for another few hours. The visitors have won 12 of their last 13 away matches in all competitions, which includes wins at the Parc des Princes, Etihad Arena, Vicente Calderon, Nuevo San Mames, Estadio Balaidos and El Madrigal. In essence, it doesn't matter the venue -- Barcelona just keep on winning and somehow, Cordoba need to stop them.
And it probably isn't going to help that Cordoba possess the worst home record in the division. Only one win and six draws, giving them a total of just nine points; I mean, does anyone really think that Barcelona aren't going to win this match with ease?
Yes, I know, we can't afford to be too complacent, but we don't always need to make a mountain out of a molehill. Sometimes, football matches can be as straight-forward as they look. With the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all expected to feature at some stage, Barcelona simply have too much quality to struggle, and even if we aren't at our best, the chances are that someone will produce a moment of magic, and that might be all we need to wrap up the three points against a goal-shy Cordoba outfit.
