WELCOME TO EL MADRIGAL!!! The gorgeous home of Villarreal is the site of a huge La Liga match between the hosts and Barcelona, who come into this one looking to start a winning streak in the league after last week’s Derby victory. Xavi has already made his mark in the first two games and will be looking to stay unbeaten as manager, but it won’t be easy against a tough Yellow Submarine. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
