The Blaugrana have been in spectacular form at home in the league, and that should continue against their struggling opponents this weekend.
Barcelona welcomes Almeria to the Spotify Camp Nou on Saturday evening in a critical La Liga clash for Xavi Hernandez’s men.
The Catalans will move ahead of leaders Real Madrid with a win, as Los Blancos do not play until Monday, and Barca will surely relish the chance to put pressure on their title rivals.
The game will also be a significant event for Barca as Gerard Pique plays his final game in front of the Camp Nou crowd, and the side will be desperate to give the center-back a winning send-off.
The Catalans are yet to concede a goal at home this season in La Liga and have won five consecutive matches in front of their fans following their 0-0 draw with Rayo Vallecano on the opening weekend of the campaign.
Domestically, Barca continues to pick up points, and last weekend they capitalized on Real Madrid slipping up at home to Girona.
The Blaugrana boast an exceptional home record, and their five consecutive Camp Nou wins contrast starkly with Almeria’s five successive defeats on the road.
The side from Andalusia has scored just three goals in six away matches this term, and against the best defensive unit in the division, they are likely to draw another blank.
Barca will dominate possession and likely rack up another high-scoring home win against the side with the worst away record in La Liga.
