Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou on Sunday for a crucial clash in La Liga. Here’s how to watch and what to know.

When: Sunday at 3:45 p.m. ET
Where: Camp Nou, Barcelona
TV: beIN Sports
Stream: beIN Sports Connect and fuboTV

What’s at stake: Three points in La Liga, with second-place Barcelona having a chance to cut the five-point gap Real Madrid holds atop of the standings. For Valencia, who sit 13th, it’s a chance to separate itself from the bottom three, where it currently holds an 11-point advantage. 

Key statistic: Barcelona has the top two scorers in La Liga with Lionel Messi’s 23 goals and Luis Suarez’s 21.  

Player to watch: Barcelona’s Suarez. Though Valencia has some sturdy central defenders, most notably Ezequiel Garay, the outside defenders either lack quality or play up too much. That should see Suarez with a few chances to run diagonally on goal and do some damage. 

Key statistic: Valencia has won at Barcelona in La Liga two out of the last three years, including last season. 

Odds:

Barca 3/19 to win
Draw 10/1
Valencia 20/1 to win

Prediction: This Valencia team has quality players but barely looks like a quality team. Barca should win comfortably. Barca 4, Valencia 0.
