WELCOME TO SoFi STADIUM!!! The spectacular home of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams in Inglewood, California is the site of the opening match of Barcelona’s preparations for the 2023-24 season as they play a high-profile friendly against English giants Arsenal. Barça’s first preseason match against Juventus was canceled due to a viral stomach bug in the Blaugrana squad, but everyone is fully fit now and ready to go for what should be a very fun 90 minutes against Mikel Arteta’s side. Ilkay Gündogan is expected to make his Barça debut, and plenty of exciting youngsters will also have a chance to show their potential. 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!
