  • Espanyol vs Barcelona how and where to watch times TV online

Another round of matches, and Barca and Real both win.

The FC crew debate if Lionel Messi truly is the greatest footballer to ever play.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique made five changes to the team that thumped Osasuna on Wednesday night, with Neymar and Luis Suarez among those to return, while a switch to a 4-3-3 formation opened up spots for Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba.

However, Barca may be without Andres Iniesta at Cornella-El Prat, with a decision on the midfielder's groin problem to be taken on the day of the game.

Asked in the press conference whether the captain would be ready to face Espanyol, Luis Enrique said: "He has some niggles".

It was a cruel blow for Quique Sanchez Flores' side, who had more than held their own in a scrappy opening half.

Barcelona's Brazilian forward Neymar lies on the field during the Uefa Champions League quarterfinal second leg match FC Barcelona vs Juventus at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, April 19, 2017. "I'm not anxious because you shouldn't just judge him on his goals but on his overall play and the goals he helps create", said the coach.


Iniesta is a major doubt for the game having missed training on Friday, and could join Jeremy Mathieu, Rafinha and Aleix Vidal on the sidelines.

The Catalans are level on points with Real Madrid but now lead the table thanks the head-to-head-records, after Lionel Messi led them to a dramatic 3-2 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu on weekend.

However, the Madrid based side do have a game in hand over Barca.

"I have no interest in talking about these things", he said.

"At this stage of the season every game is vital". Obviously it's a hard game.

"He has been sent-off very few times".
