Storylines

Barca: Just how motivated will this team be? Will they fight to the end or do they think the race is already over? You could argue that they’ve been playing like the race has been over for a while now, securing poor result after poor result. The pressure is on manager Ronald Koeman, and getting a win here could still see them out of the title race by the end of the day. A slip up here wouldn’t shock anybody. Let’s see what they are made off, especially coming off a woeful defensive display against Levante.

Celta: This is a team that can hurt you in so many ways, especially when you consider that they have four players who have scored at least eight goals this season. Leading the way is Iago Aspas and his 13, but young midfielder Brais Mendez has been one of the most improved players in La Liga. The 24-year-old Spanish midfielder continues to deliver by getting into the attacking space and can beat you from close or from range. Barca must step to him at the top of the box or risk paying the price.

Prediction

Barca get the job done with a narrow victory while hoping for Atleti to drop points. Pick: Barca 2, Celta 1
