A busy calendar

Berta Brau

After the current break for international matches, FC Barcelona face a marathon run of 8 matches in 25 days.

Starting on 21st October, Barça face a busy calendar of league and Champions League matches, totalling 8 matches in 25 days.

25 days without a break

Two days later they go to Scotland to take on Glasgow Rangers in the Champions League after which they return to Barcelona to take on Almeria in La Liga. The following week, Barça have a Wednesday night match in the Nuevo Zorrilla against Valladolid followed by a home clash against Betis at the weekend. The marathon continues with the fourth matchday of the Champions League group stage against Rangers in the Camp Nou, finishing off with an away league game against Getafe on 11th November. And there's also the first Cup Match on the 13th november.

An encouraging precedent

Such a glut of matches might appear at first hand to be detrimental to the team. However, Barça managed one draw and 6 consecutive wins, catapulting them to second place in the league and first place in their group in the Champions League.
