However, their last two sorties away from their home fortress have meant they have come back empty handed and without a goal to show for their efforts, as lackadaisical as they have been, and before that they allowed Leicester to snatch a point at the King Power before ...

Ousmane Dembele (stomach) is doubtful, but will likely play. Barcelona is already seven points ahead in the title race and has never previously lost this fixture. (more...)
