The formidable Barcelona travel to 10th place Real Valladolid on Saturday but will be without head coach Tito Vilanova due to the return of his cancer.
With 46 points from a possible 48 it’s difficult to see past this unstoppable Barcelona side this season. After beating closest rivals Atletico Madrid last weekend 4-1, they opened up a 9 point gap over them and a 13 point gap over Real Madrid.
With a record-breaking 90 goals in 2012 Lionel Messi has one more game to add to his unbelievable tally. He could struggle against a stern Valladolid defence which has conceded only 18 goals; the same as Barcelona.
Although their defences may be similar Barcelona have scored more than double than Saturday’s opponents. Oscar Gonzalez is Valladolid’s dangerman scoring 7 goals so far this season. Manucho is also a threat after netting a brace against Real Madrid recently.
Barcelona could find this game tough as Valladolid have only lost 2 games at home this season and never by more than a single goal. Real Madrid were forced to come from behind earlier this month to secure a thrilling 3-2 win.
Undergoing six weeks of chemotheraphy, Tito Vilanova will be temporarily off the sidelines. Assistant Jordi Roura will take the reins for the time being.
Sitting comfotably in mid-table, newly-promoted Valldolid have acquitted themselves well this season and will be looking for a shock result versus the might of Barcelona.
