El Classico Barcelona 6 - 1 PSG foot tennis

Barcelona travel to the oldest professional football field in Spain the El Molinon to take on Sporting Gijon in the La Liga today.

The reigning La Liga champions are making history with each game they go without defeat. Barcelona have now gone an incredible 30 games unbeaten.

Barca have also won all nine games since Arda Turan made his debut in the 4-1 win over Espanyol at the start of January.

Turan is likely to start alongside Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta in central midfield with the MNS starting upfront – Messi, Neymar, Suarez.

The Turkish international is likely to fill in for Sergi Roberto who has been dropped from the 18-man squad heading into the tie.

The away side will be confident going into the game considering Sporting have not beat Barcelona since 1994.
