On their return from the International break, Barca face 4 league games, 2 Champions League and 2 Spanish Cup matches before the next break scheduled for mid-November.

There are tough trips to Valencia and Pamplona in the league, with a trip to Russia in the Champions and the opening of their Spanish Cup defence in Leon.

Two at home and two away games

Meanwhile, newly promoted Zaragoza and the early surprise package Mallorca are due at the Nou Camp.

Rubin Kazan rivals in Champions

The two Champions League games see Barca take on Rubin Kazan home and away, with the Russians visiting the Nou Camp on 20 October and Barca flying out to Russia for the game on 4 November.

Cup defence starts

Barca's Spanish Cup campaign begins on 28 October with a trip to third division Cultural Leonesa, with the return leg set for 10 November, the last game before the next international break.
