Tough match for Barca in Primera Liga
Madrid: FC Barcelona face their toughest test of the football season to date Saturday night when they travel to play an in-form Sevilla in the Primera Liga.
With Real Madrid not playing until Sunday again, this is another chance for Tito Vilanova`s side to open up a temporary 11-point lead over Madrid.
But it will be difficult against a Sevilla side unbeaten this season and which has already defeated Real Madrid in the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium,as reported by a news agency.
Barca are still without central defenders Gerard Pique and Carles Puyol through injury. The pair is racing to be fit for the `Classico` against Real Madrid the following Sunday.
Meanwhile, there is a chance that Andres Iniesta will have recovered from a muscle injury while Sevilla will look to the pace of Jesus Navas to trouble the Barca back line.
Real Madrid entertain Deportivo la Coruna Sunday night and will expect all three points against a team that was beaten by Sevilla last weekend.
