HALFTIME, Barcelona 1-0 Atlético: A hard-fought opening period with good intensity and fighting spirit from both sides. Barça had more of the ball and Frenkie De Jong was excellent in midfield, but Antoine Griezmann nearly scored twice on the other end. But Ferran’s goal is a major boost for Barça, who get to bring Pedri from the bench to try and secure the win 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.
