Barca seek away form lift across city

05 January 2012, 17:43

Madrid - Barcelona have been imperious at their Nou Camp stadium this season but will be keen to improve their patchy away form when they take on city rivals Espanyol on Sunday as La Liga swings back into action after the winter break.

Pep Guardiola's side, chasing a fourth straight domestic league title, are three points behind leaders Real Madrid after 16 games despite humbling their rivals 3-1 in the capital last month.

While Barca are unbeaten at home, where they have won eight and drawn one and scored 39 goals without reply, they have won only three of their seven away games, netting 11 and conceding eight, and suffered a surprise 1-0 reverse at Getafe in November, their only defeat of the campaign.

Guardiola told a news conference after Wednesday's 4-0 King's Cup home win over Osasuna he expected a "difficult and physically tough" challenge in the Catalan derby at Espanyol's Cornella-El Prat arena (2030 GMT).

Barca have won only two of their last five away games against their neighbours, although they inflicted a 5-1 drubbing on Mauricio Pochettino's team when they visited last season.
