Barcelona's focus returns to league at Sevilla

BY foxsports • March 10, 2011

Barcelona's focus returns to the domestic title race at Sevilla on Sunday, while Real Madrid will look to keep the pressure on the Spanish leader with a victory at home to Hercules.

Barcelona, buoyed by its 3-1 Champions League win over Arsenal, has won four straight league games ahead of a difficult away match.

Madrid trails the two-time defending champions by seven points but is coming off perhaps its best performance of the season at Racing Santander, where Cristiano Ronaldo's absence was hardly missed in a 3-1 victory.

With a Champions League match against Lyon looming next week, the Portugal forward is expected to miss Saturday's game.
