After the terrific highs of the El Clasico victory over Real Madrid, Barcelona will want to keep that winning feeling going when they travel to Celta Vigo in La Liga on Tuesday.
Barcelona only enjoy a one point lead in the Spanish league at the moment, after Atletico Madrid's impressive win at the weekend, and Gerardo Martino will know the importance of keeping the pressure on the rest of the chasing pack by continuing to pick up three points.
"Winning the Clasico is always a boost and the squad's morale couldn't be higher," Martino said. "The players came through a hard fought game (against Real) when we were often in charge, but were also sometimes under the cosh.
"Madrid will continue to be a threat till they are mathematically ruled out. Atletico Madrid are also a team who will have a lot to say -- they are doing things perfectly."
Barca cannot expect to have it too easy against Celta, currently 15th with nine points, one point above the drop zone, after Luis Enrique's side thumped Malaga 5-0 on Saturday. Martino knows confidence will be running high amongst the Celta players after picking up their first win in seven games, and the chances of a monumental upset will be running through their minds.
"It's always important to look at what your opponents did in their last game, particularly when they played so well and got such a great result," Martino added. "We'll have to find an answer to that (Celta's form) and create our own chances."
Team News: Celta have no new injury worries and manager Enrique could welcome back Michael Krohn-Dehli after an ankle problem.
Martino admitted he would rotate the squad, although he refused to reveal the exact number of changes. One thing is certain, though, Gerard Pique will be rested.
"I'm not going to say how many [changes I will make against Celta]. The players are gradually seeing how we work and how we rotate the squad," Martino said. "I think that changes are necessary -- it's a long season."
Key men: Celta Vigo: Alex Lopez bagged a brace against Malaga, and the midfielder will be keen to continue the goalscoring run against Barcelona.
Barcelona: Lionel Messi did not quite sparkle against Real Madrid, and so the Argentine will be keen to make amends - not such great new for Celta fans.
