    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    Here's a name to send shivers down the spine of Wigan fans. Oriol Riera. Remember him? He's playing up top for the home side. His long pot-shot fails to trouble Claudio Bravo.

  3. Post update

    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    First chance for Barca as the clock ticks towards the eight-minute mark. Luis Suarez bends his run to pick up Andres Iniesta's slick throughball, the Uruguayan smashing into the side-netting.

  4. Post update

    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    Deportivo's main threat - some might say only threat - is hometown hero Lucas Perez. He's banged in 16 league goals this season, but overruns the ball as he scampers down the right flank. Heavy.

  5. Post update

    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    Barca easing into their stride, Dani Alves and Lionel Messi seeing plenty of the ball on that right flank. Depor getting plenty of men behind the ball, letting their opponents play in front of them. Barca still to threaten.

  6. Post update

    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    Quiet start on the pitch, less so in the stands. The Depor fans are in good voice, roaring their own team on, booing Barca when they have the ball. Neither side has troubled the opposing penalty box yet.

    Deportivo 0-0 Barcelona

    Game on! Depor, in that familiar blue and white striped combo, get the ball rolling.

  8. Post update

    Deportivo v Barcelona (19:00 BST)

    The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, yeah. The northern Spanish city of A Coruna is glimmering. The players are out, almost show-time... 

  9. I like adversity - Luis Enrique

    Deportivo v Barcelona (19:00 BST)

    What's most remarkable about Barca's stutter is that it came on the back of that monster 39-match unbeaten run. And coach Luis Enrique still has faith in his side to complete the job and win La Liga.

    "I'm convinced we're going to win the league, if I wasn't I wouldn't be sat here," he told a news conference on Tuesday. 

    "I like adversity, that's how I am. I want to turn this around, win and put on a show. I want to delight the fans who are behind us and can't explain this situation." 

  10. 'I'm a fool'

    Deportivo v Barcelona (19:00 BST)

  11. Barca team news

    Deportivo v Barcelona (19:00 BST)

    You can usually recite the Barcelona starting XI with the same ease as you can Humpty Dumpty. But tonight there is an enforced change to that familiar line-up. Influential centre-back Gerard Pique is out through suspension, meaning Marc Bartra comes in for only his fourth Liga start of the season. Right-back Dani Alves returns after being dropped for 'Wig-gate'.

    Barca XI: Bravo, Alves, Mascherano, Bartra, Alba, Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic, Messi, Suarez, Neymar.

  12. Post update

    Deportivo v Barcelona (19:00 BST)

    So first up is Barcelona. The faltering Spanish champions have lost their past three matches - against Real Madrid, Real Sociedad and Valencia - blowing La Liga wide open. Barca don't lose three league matches in a row, do they?! But they have, for the first time since 2003. Surely it can't be a not-so fab four? Deportivo La Coruna, currently down in 14th, stand in their way. Depor have only won once in their past six outings...

  13. Tonight's plan

    Deportivo La Coruna v Barcelona (19:00)

    Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid (19:45)

    Real Madrid v Villarreal (21:00)

    But that's not all... 

    A full(ish) Italian Serie A programme, including leaders Juventus v Lazio (19:45)

    German Cup semi-final: Hertha Berlin v Borussia Dortmund (19:30)

    French Cup semi-final: Sochaux v Marseille (20:00)

  14. Post update

    Tonight we are flying around Europe more than your favourite budget airline. While most of our time will be spent in Spain, we will also be making regular visits to Italy, Germany and France over the next few hours. Here's tonight's itinerary...

  15. Post update

    Of course, none of us have got a clue which trophy cabinet will be home to the Liga trophy next season. Barca looked almost certain to retain their crown as they scorched clear of the Madrid teams with three-quarters of the season gone. Nine points clear! That was the Catalan club's lead the start of April. Now, three defeats later, that lead has vanished.

    Atletico have dragged themselves level, Real lurking just another point behind. All three are playing tonight. Who will be top of the pile by 11pm tonight? Who will be top of the pile after the final round of games on 15 May?

    La Liga
  16. Post update

    Bored of the story about the plucky underdog beating off the big clubs and closing in on their first English league title? 

    Lost interest in the predictable procession of Paris St Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus to the French Ligue 1, German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A titles?

    If you've said 'yes' to both of these questions then you're in the right place. 

    Tonight we're focusing on Spain's La Liga. The home of the most exciting title race among Europe's big five leagues. 

    Three massive clubs. One point separating them. Five games left. Barcelona? Atletico Madrid? Or Real Madrid? Place your bets...
