They are currently fourth in La Liga on 32 points,16 points off leaders Barcelona who can stretch the lead with a win away to Real Sociedad on Sunday.

The European champions will hope to return to winning ways when they travel away to face Leganes in the first-leg quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on Thursday.
