There are only five games left in the season, and Deportivo knows it can totally spoil Barcelona’s dreams of taking home the gold. “We can decide La Liga. The destination will be told,” Deportivo forward Lucas Perez, 27, said, per Goal.com. “I knew the league would be decided in May. A lot of people said it was already won, but it is a long season.” However, Lucas said “Barca are always dangerous” and will be ready if Luis Suarez tries to take a bite out of La Coruna’s defense.

Barcelona’s Gerard Pique, 29, will sit this game out, after picking up a fifth yellow card and invoking an automatic suspension, according to SB Nation.
