The race for the La Liga title is getting heated up as Barcelona and Real Madrid keep shuffling their positions at the top with seven games each remaining. For the time being it's Madrid that fill in at 1st with 68 points, while being on level terms with Barcelona, but the Catalans could once again be back to top the charts if they win later tonight against Celta Vigo. However, Celta Vigo could eventually end up taking advantage of the pressure Barcelona could be in and get a point or more, which could hamper their chances of winning the league. Celta Vigo are currently at 16th with 33 points on board and are fresh from a 1-0 away win to Real Sociedad. Meanwhile, Barcelona also sneaked their way to a 1-0 win to Athletic Bilbao.
Date- Saturday, June 27
Kick-Off- 8:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Municipal de Balaidos
Okay Yokuslu has undergone his ban and should be back to play the anchor role in midfield for the hosts. Hugo Mallo is in doubt to start for Celta Vigo due to injury, with Kevin likely to feature as the wing-back. Denis Suarez and Rafinha are in contention of starting higher up the pitch, while being in behind Iago Aspas who should lead the charge here.
Veteran midfielder Sergio Busquets is ruled out for the fixture due to an accumulation of bookings. Ivan Rakitic bagged the all important goal in the last game against Bilbao and is expected to retain his spot in midfield. Luis Ansu Fati has done well through little cameos, but Suarez, Messi and Greizmann should lead the attack.
