FC Barcelona face Valencia


Barcelona : FC Barcelona face Valencia at the Camp Nou Stadium here on Sunday afternoon in a game which is vital to their La Liga football title ambitions.

The last game before the international break could see Barcelona kick off five points off the top of the table if Real Madrid beat Athletic Club Bilbao on Saturday afternoon and as such Luis Enrique’s side can’t afford any more slip ups, such as last weekend’s defeat away to Deportivo la Coruna.

That defeat could may be excused as a hangover from their Champions League triumph against Paris Saint-Germain the previous week, but this time there can be no excuses.
