Barca v Sporting Gijon

Barca v Sporting Gijon
Lose to Real Madrid, Real Sociedad and Valencia and you're in crisis, knock over Deportivo La Coruna 8-0 and you're favourites.

That's the world in La Liga!

Barcelona welcome Sporting Gijon to Camp Nou on Saturday night, the game is live on Sky Sports for anyone in the UK.

Barca head coach Luis Enrique was surprisingly much happier following the win over Deportivo.

He insists Barcelona played no differently than they had done against Valencia, but it was quite clear that Barca played with a much higher tempo than in previous matches.

For this game they are still without Thomas Vermaelen and Jeremy Mathieu but Gerard Pique returns from suspension.

Barca are unlikely to make any other changes.

Sporting Gijon have Omar Mascarell back from suspension.

Over the past 10 years Sporting Gijon have split their time between the top two tiers of Spanish football.

Barcelona have won 8 of their last 9 matches against Sporting Gijon in all competitions, including a 3-1 victory the last time the two sides met in February.
