Sports Mole previews the La Liga showdown between leaders Barcelona and Celta Vigo.

La Liga table toppers Barcelona host Celta Vigo on Saturday looking to move clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

The Catalan giants are expected to welcome back big guns Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba and Xavi after resting them for the Copa de Rey victory over Alaves in midweek.

Celta Vigo are likely to go with a three-pronged attack comprising Michael Krohn-Dehl, Bermejo and Iago Aspas, with Paco Herrera's men hoping to put some distance between themselves and the lower reaches of the table.

The visitors have been inconsistent all season and go into the Barca showdown just three points above the relegation zone in 13th.

Recent form:

Barcelona: WWDWW

Celta Vigo: WLWLD

Possible lineups:

Barcelona: Valdes; Montoya, Song, Adriano, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Fabregas, Pedro; Villa, Messi

Celta Vigo: Varas; Mallo, Cabral, Lago, Arceo; Oubina, Lopez, Fernandez; Bermejo, Aspas, Krohn-Dehli

Sports Mole says: 3-0
