Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes expects a stiff test against derby opponents Espanyol.

Barca have won all of their away matches in the Primera Division so far this term and have dropped only five points in total, but Espanyol boast a flawless record at Cornella this season and usually do well in this fixture.

"It's one of the most difficult and complicated games of the year, just as it has been in previous years," the goalkeeper said.

"We expect it to be very intense and very difficult, but we are very motivated and we are going there to win."
