We'll have a very interesting duel scheduled this Saturday in Spanish La Liga at Camp Nou, with Barcelona hosting Girona in the 25th round of the current campaign. The kick off is set at 19:45, local time.
Barcelona are coming after a draw recorded in the last 16 round of UEFA Champions League, 1-1 away vs Chelsea. The Catalans need three points here, since Atletico Madrid are getting closer. Barca have seven point above Simeone's team at the moment, but they had no fewer than 11 three weeks ago. Messi and his teammates are undefeated in the home games this campaign, ticking nine victories and two draws.
Girona did very well for a new promoted side, proof that they are currently on the 8th position in Spain. More than that, they are only four points behind Top 6, so it is not excluded to see them fighting for Europa League qualification until the end. The guests' strongest point remains the defense, with 30 goals conceded so far. Talking about away games, Girona won 14 points after 12 trips.
Barcelona vs Girona probable lineups:
Barcelona (4-4-2): Stegen - Roberto, Vermaelen, Umtiti, Alba - Dembele, Busquets, Rakitic, Coutinho - Suarez, Messi.
Girona (3-4-3): Bono - Espinosa, Juanpe, Ramalho - Benitez, Pons, Granell, Mojica - Portu, Stuani, Garcia.
