WELCOME TO THE DOOSAN ARENA!!! The cozy home of Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic is the site of the final Champions League group stage match of the season between the hosts and Barcelona, who come into this one for their UCL finale before they go to the Europa League. The game doesn’t mean much, but a few fringe players and youngsters will get a crucial chance to earn more minutes in the next few months. 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!
