Sixth game of the 2022/23 Liga season will be a 4.15pm CEST start at the Spotify Camp Nou
FC Barcelona's game at home to Elche, the sixth of the league campaign, has been confirmed for Saturday 17 September. The match will start at 4.15pm CEST at the Spotify Camp Nou.
The game follows on from the road trip to face Cádiz at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, and will be followed by a trip to the Balearic islands to take on RCD Mallorca.
