Barcelona will be looking to put a very poor week behind them this weekend when they travel to face Rayo Vallecano on Sunday evening, in a game which some visitors can watch with Bet365′s live stream service (see below).
Pep Guardiola’s men lost to Real Madrid at the weekend, virtually conceded the title to their bitter rivals in the process and this was sandwiched in-between two games against Chelsea that saw them knocked out of the Champions League.
The second-leg against the Premier League side was particularly disappointing for them. Leading 2-0 on the night, they were playing against ten men and looked almost certain to progress.
Chelsea hit back with two goals though meaning that Barcelona will not defend their Champions League title. It also means that they have very little to play for between now and the end of the league campaign.
They do have the Copa del Rey final to come though and in the league, they will want to finish strongly to take some momentum into next year. Three points and nothing else will do this weekend.
As for Vallecano, they are nine points clear of the relegation zone going into this weekend and should confirm their place in La Liga for next season within the next couple of weeks.

They are in an extremely poor run of form though, with six defeats in their last seven league games. This sequence does include a 6-0 hammering of Osasuna, so they are capable of turning on the style.
Their home form is reasonably decent too with three wins in their last five games in front of their own fans. This is a good time to play Barcelona too and Vallecano will be eyeing a prize scalp and a famous evening for the team.
When these two met earlier this season, Barcelona secured a comfortable 4-0 victory and there is no doubt that they are the favourites on Sunday evening despite their recent struggles.
This one gets underway at 8.30pm on Sunday.
