There’s another action-packed week in store at FC Barcelona, starting on Friday with the basketball team in the Euroleague and ending on Sunday night with Celta coming to the Camp Nou.
There’s no women’s football this weekend, although the Barça ladies did make use of the time to play a Friday friendly against Korean champions Hyundai Steel Red Angels, winning 3-0. And the Asobal handball league is also taking another week off for the European Championship, with Russia and Spain set to play the final in Belgrade on Saturday.
Here’s a rundown of what you’ve got to look forward to this weekend (all times CET):
9.00pm BASKETBALL FC Barcelona Lassa v Žalgiris Kaunas
Barça (2-4) desperately need a win to stay within reach of a Euroleague quarter finals berth, and their Lithuanian guests are in even deeper trouble (1-5).
12.00pm U19 FOOTBALL FC Barcelona v Lleida
Fourth place Barça have the chance to make up lost ground at home to the side currently third from bottom in the Division of Honour.
9.30pm ROLLER HOCKEY Recam Laser Caldes V FC Barcelona Lassa
Barça are three points clear at the top of the OK Liga, but a trip to ninth placed Caldes is one manager Ricard Muñoz knows will not be easy.
12.30pm BASKETBALL FC Barcelona Lassa v Baloncesto Sevilla
Just 48 hours after the European game, Barça (17-2) will be looking to put more pressure on Liga Endesa leaders Valencia as they host Sevilla (6-13) at the Palau.
5.00pm FOOTBALL Hèrcules CF v FC Barcelona B
Four consecutive wins have pulled the reserves well away from the relegation zone, but this trip to Alicante is one of the trickiest on their schedule.
5.00PM HANDBALL Montpellier HB v FCB Lassa
After a two-month break, the Champions League resumes, with Barça top of Group B but not yet guaranteed a direct berth into the quarter finals. Unlike their French hosts, however, Barça are at least guaranteed a place in the playoff round.
8.30pm FOOTBALL FC Barcelona v RC Celta de Vigo
Barça are top of the league with a game in hand, but on Sunday night they are at home to a team that beat them 4-1 when they met earlier this season at Balaídos. It won’t be an easy fixture for the cup finalists.
