Current Form
Barca hammered Real Betis 5-0 at home on 16 September as the champions extended their unbeaten run to five games in the Spanish top-flight.
Barcelona are undefeated in their last three home matches in La Liga having recorded three successive wins and they are now using Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys as their home ground.
Meanwhile, Celta succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Real Mallorca at home on 16 September and it was their second defeat in their last three matches in the league.
However, the Sky Blues are undefeated in their last two away matches having recorded one draw and one victory on the road.
Team News
Ronald Araújo and Pedri are still on the Barcelona injury list and the Catalan giants have no suspension concerns.
On the other hand, Franco Cervi is currently the only Celta player who is out injured and the club has no suspension issues.
"It's impossible to call this [the 5-0 win against Real Betis] a perfect match," Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez said after their game against Betis. 
"We need to improve in several aspects, especially at defending. But yes, we've played an excellent match on all levels and I am satisfied with the performance of my players and the way they enjoyed the match.
“Gavi is the heart of the team, he is a fundamental player. Many said that he was going to play less this season, but he is an exemplary footballer.”
Celta emerged as 2-1 winners over Barcelona in their last meeting in La Liga and the game took place at the Estadio de Balaídos on 4 June 2023.
The win ended the Sky Blues' three-match winless run in the league against Barca who had won two matches in a row and recorded one draw during their unbeaten run.
