Barca plays Valencia, Madrid faces Santander

MADRID (AP) -- Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou as it looks to rebound from its second loss of the season and keep pressure on Spanish leader Real Madrid, which looks to maintain its 10-point lead when it plays Racing Santander.

Madrid has won 17 of its last 18 games, with the only loss coming against Barcelona, to put it on course for setting league records for points and goals scored in a season. Cristiano Ronaldo's league-high 27 goals have him on course to break his own season record of 40 goals.

Barcelona recovered from Saturday's 3-2 loss at Osasuna with a midweek Champions League victory, but the team has a number of injury concerns ahead of Sunday's match.
