Match preview: The Barcelona derby

June 8, 2007

While the race for the league title will run until the final match of the season, Barcelona will be looking to repeat Tuesday’s result and beat Espanyol once again. Although aiming for a more comfortable margin than in the Copa Catalunya, all they need to do to feel like they’re contenders is beat Espanyol 1-0, while looking for Madrid to drop points in their away match against Deportivo, which could offer some good competition.

The final draw of the season will see Barcelona playing away at Nastic – theoretically a walkover and having little to play for they may offer little challenge – while Mallorca visit Real Madrid.

Kickoff times on Saturday are:

21:00 Barcelona-Espanyol

21:00 Zaragoza-Real Madrid
