Barcelona take to the field against Cadiz in the last La Liga game of the weekend looking to restore their 8-point lead at the summit.

Barca are on top of the table with 56 points, five more than Real Madrid who were 2-0 winners away at Osasuna on Saturday.

Xavi’s side saw their 11-game winning streak come to an end as they played out to a 2-2 draw against Man United in the Europa League.

They come up against a Cadiz side who were lifted out of the relegation zone with an important 2-0 win against Girona in their last outing.

Cadiz are now in 16th place with 22 points and a rare win here could see them jump up five places in the standings.

Barcelona have not lost in La Liga since Real Madrid beat them 3-1 at Bernabeu in the middle of October, and they have the best home record.

Barca were 4-0 winners over Cadiz in the reverse match earlier this season and the visitors will be out for a taste of revenge here.

Cadiz have lost their last two away games in La Liga and have not suffered three such defeats in the competition since 2006.

The visitors have only picked up eight points from their 10 away La Liga fixtures this term but are confident after recent decent performances against Barca.

Will the La Liga leaders extend their winning run in the Spanish top flight or can Cadiz pull off an upset here?
