WELCOME TO CAMP NOU!!! The Greatest Stadium on Earth will open its doors for the last time in 2021 as Barcelona welcome Elche for the final La Liga home game of the year. Barça come into this one on a three-game winless streak in all competitions and badly need three points to climb up the table and gain some confidence as well. Elche are on a bad run and Barça are favorites, but you never know. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!
(Note: the comments will be open only when the team news come out, because our commenter people love commenting and sometimes there are too many comments in the comments section)

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!
