The afternoon game in La Liga comes from Almeria as Barcelona are the visitors. Lionel Messi equalled Rauls all time goal scoring record in the Champions League midweek against Ajax and will look to kick on and bring that form to the league where both he and Neymar have been superb this year. Barcelona have lost two in a row in the league losing to Real Madrid where they were well beaten but last week they lost to Celta Vigo in a game that they dominated but just could not score. Messi hit the woodwork twice but the ball just would not go in. Barcelona will be looking to get the season back on track with a big win to get some confidence going in the league. Iniesta will miss out through injury and will be missed but Neymar, Messi and Suarez havent quite clicked yet, I think tomorrow could be the day we first see that trifecta come good.
Almeria have struggled lately, they have not won a home game yet this season with three draws and two losses, this is a tough team to break down but tomorrow at home they face a team that has lighting quick forwards and a brilliant midfield. Chances are Wellington Silva and Mendez will be the best chance of Almeria scoring, Almeria has lost three in a row as well as their sketchy home record. This is not the time you want to meet a Barcelona team who have something to prove.

I'm taking Barcelona -2, not a huge bet. I cant quite trust Barcelona yet but I know that trio of Neymar, Suarez and Messi is going to click soon and when they do they are going to give some team a big beating.
