FULL-TIME! Barcelona 1-0 Atletico. All over at Montjuic and Barcelona take all three points. Joao Felix is the hero for the hosts, but also credit to Inaki Pena who made two great saves in the second half.


SECOND HALF! Barcelona 1-0 Atletico; Here we go again. Atletico made three changes at half-time. Gimenez, Molina and Riquelme are off and Azpilicueta, Lino and Correa are on.


HALF-TIME: Barcelona 1-0 Atletico: Xavi’s side are deservedly ahead at the break thanks to Felix’s goal. The Catalans have had other chances to score, with Robert Lewandowski and Felix missing chances to further extend their lead. Good stuff so far from the good guys.


GOAL! Barcelona 1-0 Atletico: The hosts are ahead and it’s Joao Felix against his former side! Raphinha drives inside and picks out the former Atletico man. Felix takes a touch, races into the box and dinks it over Jan Oblak.


KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Atlético: And we’re underway at Montjuïc!


WELCOME TO THE MONTJUÏC OLYMPIC STADIUM!!!

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!
