MATCH PREVIEW: Valladolid v Barça

Quique Setién's team look to keep their league title hopes on track with a win against Sergio González's side who are not yet free of relegation worries

The league rumbles on and Saturday sees a visit to the José Zorrilla stadium (kick off 7.30pm CEST) for Barça as they take on a Valladolid who are not yet free of the spectre of relegation. 


In their most recent game Valladolid went down to a 2-1 defeat in Mestalla against Valencia with Sergio González's team conceding in the 89th minute to let a point slip through their grasp. 
League position: 14th (43 points)
League record: 11 wins-10 draws-17 defeats
Too scorers: Enes Ünal and Sergi Guardiola (6 goals)

In the game between the sides at Camp Nou earlier in the season, Barça won 5-1 thanks to goals from Lenglet, Vidal, Suárez and Messi (2). 


The blaugranes come into the game after a 1-0 win over Espanyol in midweek with Luis Suárez's goal enough for all three points. Quique Setién's team are obliged to go for the win as they go into the game in the José Zorrilla in second place in the table, some four points behind leaders Real Madrid with just three league games remaining. 

Barça will be without the injured Arthur, Dembélé, De Jong and Umtiti as well as the suspended Ansu Fati. Quique Setién has named an 18 man squad for the fixture: Ter Stegen, N. Semedo, Piqué, I. Rakitic, Sergio, Suárez, Messi, Neto, Lenglet, Griezmann, Jordi Alba, Braithwaite, S. Roberto, Vidal, Junior, Riqui Puig, R. Araujo and Arnau.
