Barcelona preparing for Mallorca clash

Barcelona travel to Mallorca on Saturday evening as the Spanish champions resume their pursuit of another La Liga title.

After a turbulent campaign that saw the departure of Ernesto Valverde, Quique Setien's side still lead rivals Real Madrid at the top of the table by two points.

Fears over Lionel Messi's fitness have also been quietened after the Argentine was declared fit to start the game, despite missing training earlier this week.

Mallorca, meanwhile, are mired in a relegation struggle, currently sitting in 18th place. However, an unlikely victory would lift them out of the bottom three.
