Probable La Liga champions Barcelona travel to Getafe on Saturday looking to extend their 12-point lead at the top.

La Liga leaders Barcelona travel to Granada, who themselves are looking for points to distance themselves from the relegation zone.

Granada are on a good run of form with three wins from their last four, most recently a 3-0 thrashing of Deportivo la Coruna at Riazor.

Barcelona have stuttered slightly since their run of 12 straight league wins, with just two victories from their last four games, and have failed to win their last two on the road.

Granada's Yacine Brahimi is a doubt for the clash, while Daniel Benitez remains out, but otherwise the hosts have a strong squad to choose from.

Xavi is out and David Villa is unlikely to feature for the Catalans, who otherwise have no injury or suspension concerns.
