Luis Enrique will be looking to guide his Barcelona side back to winning ways against former club Celta Vigo on Saturday following last weekend's disappointing El Clasico defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.
The Catalan giants have the opportunity to regain their hold on the summit when they host a Celta side who have lacked consistency of late, winning one, drawing one and losing one of their last three league games.
A resounding 3-0 win over Levante last time out saw the Celts claim a Europa League spot, though, ensuring that they will provide stern opposition for Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
Claudio Bravo is likely to retain his place in goal, despite seeing his net breached for the first time this season in that defeat against Madrid, while a decision over Luis Suarez is still to be made.
The Liverpool striker made his long-awaited debut last weekend, bagging an assist inside four minutes in the Spanish capital, and he is likely to start against Celta as he looks to build up his match fitness.
The latter is reportedly on the brink of a call-up to the Spanish national side, which will give him even more incentive to find the target at the home of the current league leaders.
