WELCOME TO CAMP NOU!!! The Greatest Stadium on Earth will have fans for a Barcelona match in the Champions League for the first time in almost two years as the Blaugrana welcome Bayern Munich for this season’s group stage opener. It’s as difficult an opening game as Barça could have asked, and the Bundesliga champions come into this one looking for another big win while Barça will try for some revenge after last year’s 8-2 disaster in Lisbon. This should be a great one, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the actionl. 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!
