Barcelona’s quest to complete a perfect Liga F season continues with a trip to Murcia to face Alhama.
La Blaugrana need just seven more wins to take their tally to a maximum 30, while they have also advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Prior to Wednesday’s thumping of Roma on the continent, Barça just about maintained their 100% Liga F record with a 1-0 victory against Real Madrid in El Clasico, needing a late Fridolino Rolfo penalty to see off Los Blancos.
Their next task should be more straightforward, with the newly-promoted Alhama only out of the relegation zone by virtue of their head-to-head record with fellow strugglers Huelva and Real Betis.
Here’s all you need to know ahead of this one.
When is kick off? Sunday 2 April, 17:00 (GMT)

Barcelona team news
Barça have recently been buoyed by the return of Ballon d’Or Feminin holder Alexia Putellas to training after recovering from an ACL injury, though she is still a few weeks away from competitive.
Mariona Caldentey (hamstring) and Claudia Pina (ankle) have both missed recent games with niggling injuries, but could return to the matchday squad on Sunday.
Jonatan Giraldez will likely field his strongest side possible ahead of the April international window having made a number of changes for last week’s Clasico win – the starting XI should look more reminiscent of Wednesday’s thrashing of Roma.
With 23 wins under their belt already and having emerged as 4-0 victors in their last meeting, it’s probably fair to say that Barcelona are overwhelming favourites here and any other result would be a huge shock.
A place in history remains at stake with the Liga F title pretty much sewn up, but Barça have both the star quality and strength in depth to march on and complete a flawless season in this competition.
Spare a thought for Alhama, who will surely be hoping just to keep the scoreline down on Sunday.
Prediction: Alhama 0-3 Barcelona
