If this result holds six point difference between 6th and 15th.

Indeed 9 points between europa qualification and 18th and relegation.

Premier league difference is 26 points between 6th and 18th.
At the moment anybody can beat anybody in La Liga. In the PL there are still games which are easy wins.

Think Bilbao will be getting a point tonight, Barca usually have narrow wins away to them and Bilbao played well at Camp Nou earlier this season and could've won.

Hopefully. The should have done a lot better at Sociedad last weekend, that has let them down a bit

Barcelona far from convincing so often this season yet nearly always win somehow. Messi just strolling around, doesn't look fit at all.

Barca not looking good.

It would be fun if Madrid got back in the title race.

Just don't see Barca winning. They're getting ripped apart right now.
Barca really miss Dembele. Suarez and Coutinho continue to be as rubbish as ever and Messi looks half fit.

It's staggering how bad Suarez can be.
Need Alba and Dembele on to have any chance here.

Alba isn’t on the bench.
That's a poor decision by Valverde if he's fit. Alba is the entire left wing for Barca and they're missing him. Suarez and Coutinho are just tragically bad and there's no chance a goal is coming here without Dembele coming on.

Messi is still there though, so there's always a chance. I want to see Dembele coming on too, but let's not forget he will probably be a bit rusty. I hope we see Dembouz coming on in the second half.

Alba is suspended.

Williams should've buried that, reminded me of the Harvey Barnes miss earlier today.

Whoa. I've just taken a peek at the La Liga table. It's a weirdly low scoring league this season at the top.

After 23 games, the top 6 Spanish sides have scored 225 goals.

In the PL after the same number of games, the top 6 had scored 337.

That's because you guys can't defend.

The PL has averaged 2.81 goals per game this season.

The BL has averaged 3.09

Serie A has averaged 2.65

La Liga has averaged 2.57

That's kind of ridiculous when you look at it.

Ridiculous. With Madrid shite show they're only 6 points away from the top. Just shows how Barca is also underwhelming but no one is noticing.

They have lost their identity of football under Valverde who is far from being a Barca manager imo. Even when they win they're not as enjoyable as before.

The cheek of Suarez complaining about being called for a handball. Words fail me sometimes with players whining at refs.
