Barcelona have the chance to break a club record on Sunday when they take on city rivals Espanyol for the third time in just over a fortnight. If the runaway La Liga leaders avoid defeat at the RCDE Stadium it would stretch their unbeaten start to the league season to 22 games.

That would be the best run in the club's history, and move them to within 10 games of equalling the national record, which was set by Real Sociedad in 1979-80. With a gap of 14 places and 33 points between the clubs in La Liga, Barcelona will fancy their chances of not only setting that new club milestone but also picking up a 19th league win of the campaign.
