The team led by Ernesto Valverde was a leader until the beginning of the day, but Real Sociedad overcame it thanks to the 1 to 1 draw he got on Friday against Leganes. A victory of the Catalans would deposit them again at the top.
Barsa will not only seek to recover the privilege site in the League, but also to break an adverse mini streak that began last Saturday, with the 3 to 1 defeat against Levante, and continued on Tuesday, with 0 to 0 equality against Slavia Prague at the Camp Nou for the European Champions League.
If the place comes to this duel with some doubts, much less auspicious is the panorama of Celta, who marches in the penultimate, accumulates four defeats in a row and in the week changed coach: Fran Escriba was dismissed after the fall to Getafe and was replaced by Oscar Garcia, who as a footballer wore the Barcelona coat for five seasons.
This is not the only meeting of the 13th date scheduled for Saturday. Earlier, Alaves thrashed Valladolid 3 to 0 and Valencia defeated Granada 2 to 0. In addition Real Madrid, which can also be a leader, faces Eibar as a visitor.
The day will be completed on Sunday with the Mallorca-Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao-Levante, Atletico de Madrid-Espanyol, Getafe-Osasuna and Betis-Sevilla duels.
