We are expecting goals at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday afternoon and the hosts boast a number of in-form forwards priced generously to score

Barcelona's 4-0 defeat at Paris St Germain in the Champions League just under two weeks ago, was the first time they had failed to score in an away match in any competition since the 13th April 2016.

On that occasion the Blaugrana were beaten 2-0 at the Vicente Calderon also in the Champions League, with a double from Antoine Griezmann helping Diego Simeone's men to progress.

After a difficult period earlier in the season, Griezmann finds himself in fine form ahead of the visit of the Catalans this weekend, with the Frenchman having eight goals in all competitions since the turn of the year. Griezmann was on target midweek in Europe and also found the back of the net the last time these two sides met at the Calderon at the start of the month in the Copa Del Rey.

Paddy Power offer him at 13/10 (2.30) to score at anytime, while his compatriot Kevin Gameiro could also be of interest at 15/8 (2.88) . The former Sevilla striker looked unstoppable against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday evening and had quite an impact from the bench at the Camp Nou three weeks ago, scoring and nearly helping Atleti to an improbable victory.

Also in decent scoring form for Los Rojiblancos is Fernando Torres, who has netted four times in the last five games, and he is offered at the same price as Gameiro to add to his tally of five league goals this season.


Barca for their part boast the league's two top scorers in Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez - with the Argentine on 19 goals for the season, one ahead of his Uruguayan teammate. Both of them are offered at 11/10 (2.10) to find the back of the net while Neymar, who has been considerably less prolific than his two fellow South Americans, is priced at 17/10 (2.70) .

After the 'MSN' attacking trident, Rafinha is Barca's next top scorer on five league goals, with the Brazilian priced at 7/2 (4.50) to net again, while Ivan Rakitic can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to add to his tally of three league strikes.
