Teams: FC Barcelona v Real Valladolid
Date: 16 February 2019
Venue: Camp Nou
FC Barcelona can extend their lead over Real Madrid when they welcome Real Valladolid to the Camp Nou this evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 21h45.
Heading into the encounter, the Catalan giants saw their lead cut to six points last weekend following a goalless draw with Athletic Bilbao.
Ernesto Valverde will also have one eye on Tuesday's UEFA Champions League encounter away to Olympique Lyon.
Valladolid, meanwhile, will be eager to avoid or clinch a surprise win as they only sit three points above the relegation zone.
The visitors have only secured one win in their last five league encounters, with the last one ending in a 0-0 draw with Villarreal.
When these sides clashed earlier in the season, a solitary strike from Ousmane Dembele secured a 1-0 win at the Estadio Municipal José Zorrilla.
Here's how they line up:
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Vermaelen, Alba; Vidal, Busquets, Aleña; Messi, Prince Boateng, Dembélé.
Real Valladolid: Masip; Fernandez, Calero, Olivas, Nacho; Verde, Michel, Anuar, Antonito; Unal, Guardiola.
