Si nada se tuerce estos días y las sensaciones se mantienen, Xavi espera poder contar para el clásico con Lewandowski, De Jong y Raphinha.— Alfredo Martínez (@Alfremartinezz) October 24, 2023
The match against Real Madrid kicks off this Saturday. Barcelona are a point behind both Madrid and Girona FC after Madrid’s draw with Sevilla.
Girona recovered from an early two goal deficit to beat Almeria 5-2. And Barcelona relied on a late goal from Marc Guiu, with his first touch ever as a senior level player, to beat Athletic Club de Bilbao 1-0.
There’s every chance that the victor of the Madrid-Barcelona match will end up topping La Liga, or at the very least, taking a big step in the long road towards winning the title.
