The Catalan side are clear at the top of La Liga and will seal the title on Sunday with a draw

Barcelona can simultaneously end La Liga's title race and relegation scrap on Sunday if they beat Deportivo La Coruna.

The Catalan side have an 11-point lead at the top of the table and need just a draw to seal the championship, but a win would help consign hosts Deportivo to the Segunda Division.

After sealing the Copa del Rey with last week's 5-0 final win over Sevilla, Lionel Messi and Co. can make it a domestic double to banish their disappointment of crashing out of the Champions League.

However, Ernesto Valverde's men may not be in for an easy stroll over the finish line, as their away form has held them back in recent weeks, having drawn four of their last six on the road in the league.

Match Preview


Barca need just a point to wrap up the title race with four games to go and ensure Ernesto Valverde's first season in charge ends with a double of trophies.

The Catalan side have been the dominant force in the Spanish top flight all season, but their recent inconsistency on the road and Deportivo's sudden rejuvenation may mean a difficult night awaits them.

Deportivo sit third from bottom in the table and look doomed to go down, but they did win this fixture 2-1 last term and replicating that achievement could set them up for a strong finish.

Lionel Messi will be gunning for goals, though, as he hopes to pull even further away from Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the league' scoring charts and challenge Liverpool hero Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot.

The Argentine is on 29 goals in 31 games, five ahead of Ronaldo, and has netted 17 times in 16 appearances against Deportivo, but drew a blank on the last two occasions. He will be determined to prevent it from becoming three in a row.
