Barcelona travel to league newcomers Girona in a magnificent spell of form with six consecutive wins across all competitions behind, which includes a 6-1 thumping of Eibar on Tuesday. Ernesto Valverde’s have been in determined since their embarrassing Spanish Super Cup loss to bitter rivals Real Madrid and don't seem to have been phased by an early season injury to the now fit Luis Suarez or the loss of record signing Ousmane Dembélé (hamstring).

However, Girona have been formidable on home and have already beaten Man City (1-0) in a friendly there, held off Atletico Madrid to a 2-2 draw, and beaten Malaga (1-0) before suffering a narrow 0-1 loss to Sevilla last time out. They may just prove a tough nut to crack and Barca could have more troubles here than expected.

The Blaugrana only managed a narrow 2-1 win at Getafe on their latest travels and had to rely on an 84’ winner from Paulinho to claim all three points in the Spanish capital.

The sides met in a friendly back in the 2011/12 pre-season (where Barcelona bagged a 2-1 home win) and a Copa Catalunya clash in 2014, where Girona proved just as challenging in a 3-2 loss at Camp Nou.

That said, it's difficult to see Barca returning home with anything less than three points given their recent winning form and with Lionel Messi's scoring prowess. The Argentine bagged four against Eibar on Tuesday evening to bring his league tally to nine in just five games.
