Barcelona will look to win a third consecutive La Liga match this Saturday when they take on Granada at Camp Nou, and a win is vital for the Catalan giants to stay close to leaders Real Madrid in the early stages of this title race.

This is how the Spanish league works: every point matters and whenever you drop those, you're in trouble. Barça dropped plenty of points at the start of the season but trail Madrid by just two; they can't afford to see that gap increase, however, and a victory this weekend will assure they remain a big part of the fight for the trophy.

Granada are in last place and are the only team in Spain's first division yet to win a match, and with four losses in the last five matches, they are definitely not in a good run of form ahead of a match against the world's best team. Barça are almost obligated to pick up a victory, and that's quite dangerous.

No football match should be taken for granted, but when the gap between two opponents is this big, the stronger team could be a little arrogant coming in and the weaker side could pull off a giant upset. Barça are not an arrogant team, however, and with the 'MSN' trio on the pitch they have a major chance of easily winning Saturday's match.

If you want to see Barça putting on a show and the world's best players scoring some goals, this should be the game for you. Every game with Messi, Suárez and Neymar is must-watch, and when they are likely to give us an amazing performance, you just cannot miss.
