Oh hey, it's matchday!
Barcelona will face Sporting Gijón at El Molinón in just a few hours, in a key La Liga match for the Catalans. This fixture last season was tough, but the Blaugrana came away with a victory and need the same result today in order to stay close to Real Madrid at the top of the table.
This is a special game for Luis Enrique, who returns to his home. Lucho was born in the Asturias and became a footballer thanks to the Sporting Gijón youth system, and he will face his childhood club as a Barça manager for the second time. Gijón loves him, and it'll be a nice environment for Enrique.
El Molinón is ready for the game, and the visitors' locker room is also set:
This should be fun!
