LaLiga table toppers and defending champions, Barcelona, will today, seek to continue their march to yet another title when they take on relegation-threatened Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou. The match is one of Week 27 matches to air live exclusively to GOtv MAX subscribers.
The match will be aired at 6.30 pm on SuperSport Select 4 (channel 34).
Barcelona are currently on a hot streak; last week, the defending champions defeated their fierce rivals, Real Madrid, 1-0 away from home in the El Clasico, following an earlier 3-0 victory over the same opponents in the Copa del Rey semi-final, also at the Santiago Bernabeau.
Barcelona will hope to win their 19th match of the season and maintain a seven-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid.
Second-placed Atletico Madrid is also in action today when they host 11th-placed Leganes in what is expected to be a tough game. The match will be live at 4:15 pm on SuperSport Select 4.
The Madrid-based team has regained form after a mini-slump, which saw them lose to Real Betis and Barcelona.
However, Leganes, who are punching above their weight this season, have won four of their last eight matches and are playing some eye-catching football after their near-catastrophic campaign last season.
On Sunday, Real Madrid, who are currently distressed, will hope to begin their recovery from back-to-back home defeats in the hands of Barcelona and UEFA Champions League exit in the hands of Ajax Amsterdam when they confront Real Valladolid away from home. The El Clasico loss to Barcelona has left them trailing the Catalan side by 12 points. They will, however, be motivated by the possibility of picking up Spain’s final automatic UEFA Champions League ticket. The match will air live at 8:45 pm on SuperSport Select 4.
