WELCOME TO THE SPOTIFY CAMP NOU!!! The Greatest Stadium on Earth is the site of a big La Liga match between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in a high-level Sunday evening clash in the Catalan capital. Barça come into this one on the back of a good win against Villarreal but need to keep the momentum going against a very good team and a familiar face in former Barça manager Ernesto Valverde. 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!
