Sports Mole previews Barcelona's visit to Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga.

La Liga leaders Barcelona will be expected to maintain their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday night when they travel to the Estadio Municipal de Riazor to take on struggling Deportivo La Coruna.

Barca have been in sparkling form in the early stages of the campaign and only dropped their first points two weeks ago when they were held to a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in El Clasico.

Meanwhile, Deportivo find themselves in the relegation zone following three defeats in their last three matches.

The visitors are still facing something of an injury crisis at the back with Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique both being sidelined, so Alex Song may have to continue his role in the centre of defence.

Deportivo coach Jose Luis Oltra has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match.

Recent form:

Deportivo: DDDLLL

Barcelona: WWWWWD

Possible lineups:

Deportivo: Aranzubia; Evaldo, Ze Castro, Laure, Marchena, Bergantinos; Aguilar, Valeron, Gama; Pizzi, Riki

Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Song, Mascherano, Alba; Fabregas, Xavi, Iniesta, Adriano; Messi, Pedro

Sports Mole says: 0-3
