Camp Nou: Home of Barcelona(credit: Wikipedia
Barcelona defender Maxwell has urged his team-mates not to look past tonight’s opponents Almeria.
Barca have huge league and cup showdowns with fierce rivals Real Madrid ahead of them this month, in which they could all but wrap up a domestic double.
And while the talk has already begun ahead of these games, full-back Maxwell admits it would be dangerous to overlook their upcoming opponents, knowing they must take three points against rock-bottom Almeria to maintain their eight-point advantage at the top of the Primera Division.
He said: “It's a very dangerous thing if we start thinking about Real Madrid.
“We have to respect both Almeria and Shakhtar (Donetsk in the Champions League) - then we'll see.”
While Barcelona head into this game on the back of three successive victories in all competitions, Almeria’s unbeaten run was stretched to three games with defeat to Athletic Bilbao last time out.
Watch Barcelona v Almeria live at 365, kicking off at 19.00 GMT.
