Beautiful and very impressive victory achieved by Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga continued last weekend against the eternal rival, Real Madrid. How come? Despite playing without the presence of the main star Lionel Messi, Ernesto Valverde’s squad managed to win 5-1 thanks to Luis Suarez’s hat trick and goals from Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal. Although it was important, but Barcelona still have to forget the euphoria of the victory in the match, because in fact they are currently only one point ahead of their closest rivals, Deportivo Alaves.
In further, Spanish La Liga this weekend, Barcelona itself will face one of the promotion teams, Rayo Vallecano. Their match plans to take place on Sunday morning (04/11) at Estadio del Rayo Vallecano (DE VALLECAS TERESA RIVERO).
Rayo Vallecano who will play as the host in the match later, seems very doubtful to be able to package victory over Barcelona. The Promotion Team is in fact only able to pack six points out of a total of 10 La Liga matches that have taken place this season, and they sit in 19th place in the standings.
It’s very different from Barcelona who in fact are currently sitting on the throne of the La Liga standings, they collected 21 points from a total of 10 matches that have taken place. But actually, the number of points is not ideal for the team who peaked in the standings of 10 matches, especially Barca only packed 6 wins in their last five games in all competitions. Not only that, in their position now the team which is under Ernesto Valverde’s direction is only 1 point ahead of Deportivo Alaves which is at 2nd place now.
The conclusion is Barcelona are targeting a win in the away party this weekend against Rayo Vallecano.
