With Atletico Madrid now effectively out of the running following their 2-1 defeat to Levante last weekend, only their rivals Real Madrid can threaten to spoil Barca’s Championship party should they win at Deportivo La Coruna and Barca pick up anything less than three points in their match.

Following their failed defense of the 2015 Champions League title, a title win will surely go far to appease the Barca support this season. A quarter final exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid in the competition was disappointing to say the least but this Saturday represents a chance to finish the season on a high should they win in Andalucia.

With a Copa del Rey final against fellow Andalucians Sevilla also on the horizon, a league-cup domestic double is still indeed on the cards for the Catalonian side. Once the club season wraps up many Barca stars will head over to Euro 2016 to appear for Spain where the current holders of the trophy are 11/2 odds with bookie 10bet to hold onto their European crown.

Andres Iniesta, Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets are likely to be making an appearance in Vicente Del Bosque’s Spanish squad whilst Arda Turan will represent Turkey and Ivan Rakitic will appear for Croatia.
