The Blaugrana welcome Deportivo La Coruña to the Camp Nou for a big match for both sides. Depor have been in terrible form all season and could be fighting against relegation with a loss today.
For Barça, this is all about staying unbeaten and boosting the team’s confidence a week before El Clasico. A win tonight would put the Catalan giants six points ahead of Atlético Madrid and 11 over Real Madrid, putting enormous pressure on both Madrid sides for the rest of the season.
Barça haven’t played their best football lately, but they’ve still been able to get good results and stay on top of the table without losing a single match. Beating Depor looks like a foregone conclusion given the form of both sides, but it’ll certainly be a difficult game that Barça must take seriously.
Lionel Messi will almost certainly start and captain the side tonight, and watching Messi play football is always a good thing. So don’t miss this one. It’ll be fun, and you must watch it.
