Sports Mole previews Barcelona's clash with Real Zaragoza at Camp Nou.

Barcelona will be seeking to extend their four-game winning run in La Liga against Real Zaragoza when they host them at Camp Nou on Saturday.

Tito Vilanova's side have yet to lose in the league this season and are currently at the top of the standings with 31 points from 11 matches, three points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

On the other hand, Zaragoza are 11th in the league table with 15 points, five points above the relegation zone.

Manolo Jimenez's side, though, are on a good run of form. The Blanquillos have won four of their last five competitive matches - their only defeat in that run came against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Barca will be without midfielder Sergio Busquets, who is suspended. Alexis Sanchez will also miss the game as he is injured.

Cristian Sapunaru and Abraham Minero are suspended for Zaragoza. Javier Paredes is likely to return to the starting lineup for the visitors, along with fellow defender Maurizio Lanzaro.
