Barcelona is currently sitting at the top of La Liga with 71 points across their names, which is the result of their dominance in the league. They are now ahead of the team at the second spot with 12 points, which they could bring until the next rounds. Barcelona is a team who have been impressive this season, which is why they are sitting at the top of the league table. However, on their previous match, they shocked everyone when they were defeated by Real Madrid in Copa del Rey. It was a devastating 4-0 loss, which is why they need to work harder in order to bounce back from that loss. As they come into this match, they are looking to take advantage of their opponent’s poor form in order to win this game.

It is just unfortunate that they will be without guys like Ousmane Dembele, Pedri, Andreas Christensen, and Frenkie de Jong for this match. Moreover, there will be no major change in their squad. However, Ansu Fati, and Jordi Alba might be in the XI.
