La Liga: Unbeaten Barcelona only a win away from title
Barcelona will look to stomp their authority when they travel to Deportivo de La Coruna in a title seeking La Liga match on Sunday. The Catalans have 83 points from 33 matches and a win will be enough for them to seal La Liga. They are up against a Deportivo team, which is on the verge of being relegated. Here is the preview.
Double seeking Barca in prime form
The manner in which they beat Sevilla to win the Copa del Rey last week, makes the side outright favourites. A league win and the Copa del Rey would give manager Ernesto Valverde the perfect beginning to his Barcelona career. After losing the title to Real Madrid last season, the Catalans are back to doing what they know best.
Team selection and updates
Deportivo will miss Eneko Boveda due to an injury. They also have a couple of issues regarding the fitness of Adrian Lopez, Sulley Muntari and Zakaria Bakkalii. Barca will miss the services of Sergi Roberto out with suspension.
All focus on legend Andres Iniesta
The Barcelona legendary midfielder has announced his departure from the club at the end of the season. Barca players will be charged up to make sure they get the desired result and give the deserved parting gift to the Spaniard. This would be Iniesta's ninth La Liga honour with Barca and a 32nd trophy. He has played 669 games, scoring 57 goals.

Stat attack: Deportivo vs Barca
Deportivo have won one out of their last 15 La Liga encounters against the Catalans. They have drawn 4, lost 10 and beat them 2-1 at home last season. The club also suffered their biggest loss 8-0 against Barca in 2016. Barca are the first team in La Liga history to remain unbeaten in 33 matches in a season. The invincibles?
