With Real Madrid away at the Club World Cup, this weekend is a chance for Barcelona to put further distance between themselves and their eternal rivals.

The Catalans come into this round of matches eight points ahead of Los Blancos and a win at home against struggling Deportivo La Coruna would extend that lead to double figures before next week's El Clasico at the Bernabeu.

Whatever happens on Sunday evening against Depor, Ernesto Valverde's men will head to the Spanish capital top of the La Liga table, and the Blaugrana's unbeaten start to the season has been impressive if less spectacular than perhaps other years.

A seventh home league win of the season looks very much on the cards for the Catalans on Sunday against a poor Deportivo side who are hovering just above the relegation zone, and dabblebet offer an away win at 25/1 (26.00), while Barca can be backed at 1/12 (1.08) and the draw is offered at 10/1 (11.00).

The recent history of this fixture is a curious one, with Barcelona winning only two of their last five meetings and Depor victorious in the last game they contested in April.

Those two wins for Barca were thumping 4-0 and 8-0 successes, while the 2014/15 season and the 2015/16 season saw Depor claim draws by a 2-2 scoreline at the Camp Nou; Depor, therefore, have proved to be stubborn opposition for Barca in the past, although it is difficult to see them causing the La Liga leaders too many problems this weekend.

Over the last couple of seasons, the Galicians have had one of the poorest away records in the division and their record of just three wins in their last 38 matches on the road underlines the problems Depor have had away from the Estadio Riazor.

Barca, meanwhile, have a stunning home record in the Primera Division, with their 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo in their last home league game ending a run of 18 consecutive victories.

Therefore, backing a win for the Catalans and over 3.5 goals at 17/20 (1.85) looks like an attractive option, with this game producing plenty of goals in recent years and Barca likely to be far too strong for their opponents.
