Barcelona, who have a cent percent record in the La Liga this season with four wins from four matches, travel to Balaídos as they face another stern test against Celta Vigo on Wednesday.

Though Barcelona were not impressive in front of goal during the first few games of the season, the Blaugrana players came up with a superb performance against Levante, who lost the game 1-4. Lionel Messi scored a brace for Barcelona.

On the other hand, Celta Vigo have also been impressive in the La Liga as they lie undefeated this season with three victories and one draw. Hence Barca's visit to Celta Vigo's home turf could prove to be their biggest test so far. The Sky Blues have been a dangerous team at the offensive end with 10 goals in the competition and they will be eager to continue this goal scoring form against Barcelona as well.

Daniel Wass, who has been a big player for Celta Vigo this season, will need to be on top of his game if the home team are to hand Barcelona their first defeat of the season.

Having seen Celta Vigo play some quality football so far, Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, expects a difficult game. "I expect a really difficult game given the characteristics of our opponents and their current form. All in all, it will be an attractive and interesting game for us," Barcelona's official website quoted Enrique as saying.

"It will be as difficult as they come. For example, last season it was really difficult for us. This year they have made some good signings and they are not just getting results, they are doing it playing attractive football."

On paper, Barcelona are obvious favourites with players such as Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, who are arguably the most dangerous trio upfront in world football. If the trio get their act together against Celta Vigo, expect Barcelona to have a great night at Balaidos.

Celta Vigo might have been prolific at the offensive end, but their performance at the back has been really shaky where they have let in five goals during the season. If Celta Vigo have any strong desire of finishing in the top four this season, they need to seriously shore up their defense.

Enrique believes that the team needs to play good football to defeat Celta Vigo.

"They are games that you know, given the way they put you under pressure, are uncomfortable. The result will depend on our level. If we play as we can, we will have a chance. If not, then no," added Enrique.
