FC Barcelona News
Last week saw the draw for the 2013-2014 Spanish League, which for FC Barcelona kicks off this year on the weekend of 17/18 August against Levante.
After the league has started they still have the two Spanish Supercup matches to play against Atletico Madrid, before heading down to Malaga and Valencia on 24/25 August and 31 Agust/1 September respectively, and then back to the Nou Camp on 14/15 September against Sevilla. That is quite a start to the season, which the Catalan club can often be slow to get into, and so a real test.
The clasicos this year take place on 26/27 October at the Nou camp, with teh return leg at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium on 22/23 March 2014. Hopefully without Jose Mourinho at Madrid the clasicos will not descend into the mud slinging and poor sportsmanship we’ve seen recently, which has mired Spanish football.
