A week with El Classico, Derby, league title and Wembley in sight

Marc Guillén

It would be hard to find seven days so full of big moments as Barça now face, as they take on Real Madrid on Tuesday with a place in the UCL Final at stake, followed by the game against Espanyol on Sunday, when they could retain their league title.

A week with El Classico, Derby, league title and Wembley in sight

The final of the Champions League and the winning of the league title would be two dream objectives for any team and this week Barça have the chance to achieve both within a few days of each other as they go into the most exciting week of the season.

Wembley, here we come?

The team will train on Monday afternoon at the Nou Camp and Barça TV will be covering the whole day live. The players will then stay overnight together at a local hotel, as they always do ahead of a home European tie, before a final training session on Tuesday morning.

And the league title on Sunday?

After Tuesday’s game, the squad have just five days to prepare for the derby game at home to Espanyol, which kicks off at 19.00 on Sunday. Real Madrid play on Saturday and if they lose against Seville, Barça will go into their game knowing a win would give them the title. If Madrid and Barça both win, then Guardiola’s team would need just one more point from their last three games – against Llevant, Deportivo and Malaga – to win La Liga again.
