Sports Mole previews Saturday's La Liga clash between Barcelona and Real Valladolid.

Barcelona will be looking to remain top of La Liga when they face Real Valladolid at Camp Nou on Saturday.

The Catalan side, who have won their last six league games, sit joint-top of the league table alongside Atletico Madrid.

Gerardo Martino's side come into the match off the back of Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Celtic in the Champions League.

Valladolid have drawn three and lost one of their last four games after holding Malaga to a 2-2 draw last weekend.

Lionel Messi will miss the match as he continues his recovery from a thigh injury, so Cesc Fabregas could start in attack after he netted the decisive goal against Celtic.

Valladolid coach Juan Ignacio Martinez has no injury concerns and could name the same side that drew with Malaga.
