Where to watch Barcelona vs Mallorca live stream, TV channel, lineups, prediction for La Liga match

Barcelona have a chance to put some pressure on their La Liga title rivals as they host Mallorca on March 8.

The clash has been brought forward by La Liga, with Barcelona facing a midweek UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Napoli, and the Catalans will be aiming to capitalise.

A 0-0 draw at Athletic Club last weekend meant Xavi Hernandez missed the chance to seize on Real Madrid’s draw at Valencia and they remain on the edge of the title race.
