The Blaugrana will attempt to make it 33 games unbeaten in the league when they take on Juan Carlos Unzue's side

Barcelona will look to take a step closer to clinching the Liga title when they travel to Celta Vigo on Tuesday.

Ernesto Valverde's side rebounded from their Champions League elimination by beating Valencia 2-1 at the weekend, a result which means they are 11 points clear at the top with six games left.

The Catalan side are set to make some changes for the game as they allow one eye to drift towards their Copa del Rey final clash against Sevilla at the weekend.

Hosts Celta, meanwhile, come into the match on the back of a defeat, but they will take some confidence from their 2-2 draw against the Blaugrana earlier in the season.

Match Preview


Luis Suarez Barcelona Roma UEFA Champions League

Barcelona can move 14 points clear at the top of La Liga - temporarily at least - with a win over Celta on Tuesday, which would put them within touching distance of the title.

However, they are expecting a difficult game against the Galicians, who have beaten the likes of Sevilla and Real Betis, as well as taking points off Real Madrid and Barca this season.

"We know how tough it will be," Valverde told reporters ahead of the game. "Celta have been playing well at home and they play well against teams in the top half of the table."

Having played Valencia on Saturday and with a cup final to come this weekend, the Blaugrana boss is set to rotate his squad, meaning Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez could be used sparingly.

That doesn't mean they will be taking the game lightly though, as they attempt to continue their record-breaking unbeaten campaign in the Primera Division.
