Barcelona will bid to keep the pressure on Real Madrid when they travel to take on Real Valladolid later this afternoon.
Tata Martino’s side are currently just one point behind the leaders and with the Real not playing until Sunday they have a chance to go two points clear, laying down a marker for their rivals.
To do that the club will have to improve on recent form, having won just four of their last eight games.
They face a Valladolid side sitting third from bottom, three points from safety and with just one win in their last 10 games.
The clash with Valladolid will be the first time Barcelona take to the field since it was revealed that Captain Carlos Puyol is set to leave the club at the end of the season.

“I haven’t discussed transfers with the club. What is clear is that, now Puyol leaves, we’ll need to sign a centre back.”
The club already have Marc Bartra at the club and the 23 year old helped ease the departure of Puyol by revealing that he had signed a new contract, tying him to the club until 2017. The former Spanish Youth International is line to start this weekend.
