Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Barcelona v Valencia

La Liga
 
Teams: Barcelona v Valencia
 
Date: 17 April 2016
 
Venue: Camp Nou
 
League leaders Barcelona have a chance to get their La Liga campaign back on track when they host Valencia on Sunday.
 
 
The Catalans looked like they were cruising to another La Liga title a few weeks ago, but have since failed to win in their last three league encounters.
 
Luis Enrique's side have meanwhile also been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Atletico Madrid, and will need to bounce back quickly to ensure Real Madrid and the Rojiblancos don't catch up.
 
Barca are one point clear of Real Madrid, who have played one more game, and three ahead of Atletico, who host Granada today.
 
Valencia's last clash with the Blaugrana saw them thrashed 7-0 in the Copa, but they recently ended their four-match losing streak with a 2-1 win at Sevilla.
 
 
Here's how they line up: 
 
Barcelona: Bravo, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Alba, S. Roberto
 
Valencia: Alves, Siqueira, Abdennour, Mustafi, Barragan, Dani Parejo, Javi Fuego, Enzo Perez, Andre Gomes, Rodrigo, Mina
