Match Preview


Luis Suarez Barcelona

Barcelona have been in great goal scoring form this season and have already taken a two-point lead at the top of La Liga.

But since Lionel Messi and Co. beat their Catalan neighbours home and away last year, they will be confident of another big victory at Camp Nou.

Messi is already joint-top of the goal chart with four goals in the top flight and is coming off the back of another Champions League hat-trick.

Luis Suarez also has a good record against Girona, having scored eight times in four games, and will be looking to get among the goals again.
