Barcelona are back in action in La Liga this weekend with another important fixture as they take on Celta Vigo at the Camp Nou on Sunday. Barcelona have fallen behind in the title race and cannot afford to drop points against Celta Vigo this weekend.
Celta Vigo are in eighth place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have experienced an extraordinary resurgence in recent weeks. With the likes of Nolito and Santi Mina firing on all cylinders, the Galicians have registered four victories on the trot and could potentially trouble the hosts in this encounter.
Barcelona, on the other hand, find themselves four points behind Atletico Madrid with only two games to go and have an outside chance of clinching the title this season. The Catalans have blown hot and cold for most of their campaign and have had their problems against Celta Vigo in the past.
