Match Facts

Barcelona look to get back to winning ways in La Liga when they welcome relegation-threatened Valencia to the Camp Nou on Sunday.

The Catalan giants lost 1-0 to Almeria last weekend, but they remain top of the table, seven points clear of second-placed Real Madrid, while Valencia have had a disastrous campaign so far and are currently 18th. 23 points tally going into the next set of fixtures. So Xavi's side missed the chance to go 10 points clear at the summit last weekend, but they have a seven-point lead over second-placed Real Madrid with 15 games left to play in Spain's top flight.

Barcelona returned to winning ways on Thursday evening as they recorded a 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final, with Eder Militao's own goal proving the difference between the two sides. at night. The Catalan side now have four league games against Valencia, Athletic Bilbao, Real Madrid and Elche before welcoming Real Madrid for the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final. Barcelona have the best home record in La Liga this season, picking up 29 points from 11 matches, and they will welcome a Valencia that have picked up just six points on their travels in 2022-23. Meanwhile, the Blaugrana have won each of their last four league games against Valencia and have not lost to Los Che at the Camp Nou in Spain's top flight since April 2016.

Barcelona will again be without Ousmane Dembele, Pedri and Robert Lewandowski for this weekend's match.

Meanwhile, Gavi is suspended following his yellow card against Almeria last weekend, so the Catalan outfit will be without four key players for the match. Andreas Christensen was an unused substitute against Real Madrid due to a minor ankle problem, but he is expected to return to the XI for this match, while Anzu Fati and Ferran Torres could be up front due to the absence of Gavi and Dembele. and Lewandowski.

For Valencia, Gabriel Paulista, Marcos de Souza, Jose Gaia, Edinson Cavani, Nico Gonzalez and Jaume Domenech will be out through injury. Paulista picked up a foot problem against Real Sociedad last time out, which could see Erre Komert come into the middle of the defence. Hugo Dureau and Samuel Lino will join Samu Castillejo in the final third of the field, while Hugo Guillaume is likely to slot into central midfield on Sunday afternoon.
