Barcelona manager Luis Enrique will be keen to bounce back from last weekend's El Clasico defeat and get Barcelona back to winning ways, when he welcomes his former side Celta Vigo to the Camp Nou on Saturday night.

It was Enrique's impressive time with Celta last season which gave the former Blaugrana midfielder and youth coach the chance to return to Camp Nou as the boss this summer. Now, after the easy set of opening fixtures and his honeymoon time is over, Enrique faces the challenge of maintaining Barcelona's position as La Liga leaders.

After the first nine gameweeks, the Catalan outfit is atop the table, level on 22 points with Sevilla and one behind rivals Real Madrid, who beat them 3-1 at the Bernabeu last week to tighten the title race early on.

Barca are doing well in the Champions League as well, topping their group at the moment. But they lost their only big match so far in that competition as well, with French giants PSG beating them 3-2 in Paris.

Enrique, who has assembled a mouthwatering squad after taking charge at Barca this summer, now has some questions before him; and he will be looking to find them sooner than later.

Celta, on the other hand, have followed up their impressive season under Enrique last time, with yet another decent start to the campaign, and are currently sixth in the table, just one spot behind defending champions Atletico Madrid.

Celta warmed up for this match by beating Levante 3-0 last week, with Joaquin Larrivey scoring a brace for the hosts. Larrivey and fellow forward Nolito have been fine form, with the latter apparently close to earning a callup from Spain boss Vicente del Bosque.
