HALFTIME, Barcelona 0-0 Sevilla: A goalless yet high-level, competitive first half between two good teams in the Catalan capital. Barça had more of the ball and the best chances, but Sevilla caused big problems of their own and are very much alive in this one. Second half should be fun.
36’ INJURY: Barça lose another player to injury as Raphinha leaves with a right hamstring problem and is replaced by Fermín López.

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!
