FULL-TIME, Barcelona 1-2 Celta: After 30 excellent minutes to start the game, Barça slowly but surely faded away in the second half and were wide open at the back after the Lenglet sending off. The chances of a title are officially zero, and the chances of Ronald Koeman staying should be the same.
WELCOME TO CAMP NOU!!! For the last time this season, and hopefully for the last time without fans, the Greatest Stadium on Earth will host a Barcelona match as the Catalan giants face Celta Vigo. Barça are pretty much out of the title race but still need to win to finish the season strong, but it won’t be easy against a Celta team on a four-game winning streak that can cause a lot of problems. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. LET’S LIVE BLOG!!!

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!
