If they don’t put things together both Madrid clubs might very well run away with the title race.

43′ 3 – 0 Luis Suarez got himself on the scoresheet with a nicely taken goal just before the break as Barcelona wrapped up the win.
58′ 4 – 0 Lionel Messi
As far as the team news is concern Barcelona don’t have any major injury worries and I full expect Enrique to name his normal full strength side with Neymar, Messi and Suarez starting upfront while Rakitic, Iniesta and Busquest to playing in central roles while the Enrique might have to decide weather to start with Dani Alves or stick with Sergio Roberto.
Last time these two meet a 2-2 draw was the result at Estadio Riazor. Luis Enrique side can not afford to drop points like that anymore with both Madrid clubs right up their tails.
Predictions: Barcelona are back in the hunt for another treble after eclipsing PSG in historic 6-1 win at Camp Nou and a win against Deportivo will put them in good position in the league heading business end of the season. Neymar and Suarez are back in form while Messi maybe not in top form he is always a threat going forward. I am going with another comfortable 3-1 win for Barcelona in this one.
