Live on Skysports 4: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Barcelona are aiming for a 6th clean sheet from 6 homes games against Mallorca; 4-0 is 7/1 (Ladbrokes).
Barcelona are going through a goal drought by their standards, just 4 in the last 4 league games. Against Real Mallorca they are just 1/10 (William Hill) to win and should get back on the goal trail.
Barcelona are yet to concede at home this season and another win to nil is just 4/7 with Paddy Power so perhaps going down the goals route is the only option. Coral make Barca a backable 4/6 to win both halves.
On the handicaps, Stan James go 8/5 that Barcelona can win out by 4 goals or more and this looks to be the bet. Ladbrokes offer 7/1 about a 4-0 home success and Lionel Messi, without a goal in 3 competitive matches, is 7/4 with to roar back into form with 2 or more.
Sociedad drew their first blank at home since March last weekend but their poor form is not encouraging. Madrid, with 21 league goals in 5 games, look backable at 6/4 (Paddy Power) to prevail by 3 goals or better while Angel di Maria is 13/8 (Totesport) to get on the scoresheet.
