This should be fun, and here’s a live thread for you to chat away as you watch the big game.

Matchday Thread Rules

Even though this isn’t a Barcelona match and we don’t have a lot of rules here, 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!
