FULL-TIME, Barcelona 0-0 Girona: A very disappointing attacking performance from Barça, who could have easily lost and didn’t deserve anything from the game. They’re now 13 points clear at the top of the table with 10 minutes to go which is the only bit of good news from this one, but the team’s showing left a whole lot to be desired.

HALFTIME, Barcelona 0-0 Girona: A hard-fought, intense first half at Camp Nou with good moments in attack for both sides. Barça had the better chances but are lacking composure and precision in the final third, and they need to be more clinical to get the winning goals in the second half.

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!
