Worth mentioning: Celta lost just one of their previous seven games and won three of the matches. Two of the last five Celta outings featured over 2,5 goals, while three saw both involved teams finding a way past the opposition goalkeeper. The team is on a three game winning streak in their home matches and all of these saw more than two goals scored and none of the sides able to keep a clean sheet.
Barcelona are unbeaten in their last twenty competitive outings and are currently on a run of five consecutive victories across all competitions. On Wednesday the Catalans recorded comprehensive 3:0 victory in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Liverpool. Given the importance of reaching the final in the elite European competition and that the team has already secured the Spanish title, Blaugranas will probably field a second string line-up.
