ABOUT THE MATCH

Barcelona are back in action with another La Liga fixture this weekend as they take on Valencia at the Camp Nou on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and have a point to prove in this match.

Valencia are in eighth place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have improved after a slow start to the season. Los Che were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Cadiz earlier this month and will need to step up this weekend

Barcelona, on the other hand, have struggled in recent weeks and suffered consecutive defeats before the international break. The Catalan giants are in a lowly ninth place in the league table and cannot afford a debacle on Sunday.
