Football : Spanish La Liga
Venue: Nou Camp, Barcelona

    Match Preview :

Champions Barcelona welcome Real Valladolid to Camp Nou on Sunday evening, looking for a victory in front of their home fans. Barcelona won the title after beating Atletico Madrid 2-1 last week and now it is time to play their home match before the celebrations begins after the match.

By beating Atletico Madrid, the Catalan side recorded their 8th win from ten games and they will not want to take their foot off the pedal with the visit of Real Valladolid who have nothing to play for after they secured top flight football for next season with their 1-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna last week. They are neither involved in the battle for European places nor are in danger of relegation anymore. Despite beating Deportibo 1-0 last weekend, they only managed one win in their last nine  matches before that.

Barcelona knows that if they can win against Valladolid they will be on course to finish the season with 100 points, which is a record never achieved before in La Liga.

For the record, Real Valladolid have not won at Camp Nou since a 2-1 success in November 1997. When the two sides met at the Estadio

Municipal Jose Zorrilla in December, Barcelona ran out 3-1 winners.
And even though Barcelona could unleash their youngster and fringe players, they will want to prove they have what it takes so get on Barcelona and give the 1 3/4 ball here.
