When Barça fans woke up on Sunday morning, the first thing they did was check their phones to make sure it hadn't all been a dream.

Graham Hansen leaves Norway camp because of injury - SPORT
The UEFA Women's Nations League has claimed a 'victim' from Barca's squad. It is the Norwegian striker Caroline Graham Hansen.

Xavi helping to get the best version of Joao Cancelo - SPORT
Cancelo's desire, as he explained at his presentation, was to play for Barça and, although he remains the property of City, it has taken him just four games to prove that his dream was not a whim and, on the other hand, to prove Xavi right, the person who insisted most on his arrival.

He spoke about Joao Félix, who he sees as happy at Barça and of whom he recalls that "he is our player". In that sense, he understands that if the loan spell at Barça goes well for him, it is also positive for them.

And without Frenkie de Jong, what now? Xavi's alternatives - SPORT
Frenkie de Jong's injury was the worst news of Barça's comeback against Celta at Montjuïc, a 3-2 win. The Dutchman could be out until November, a setback that leaves Xavi without one of the team's most in-form players. De Jong will miss seven Barça matches: Mallorca-FCB (26-09), FCB-Sevilla (29-09), Porto-FCB (4-10), Granada-FCB (8-10), FCB-Athletic (22-10), FCB-Xakhtar (25-10), FCB-Madrid (28-10).
