Highlights of the next few weeks include matches against Real Madrid and Juventus
After three tough fixtures to open the Liga campaign (Villarreal, Celta and Sevilla), things don’t get any easier between now and the next international break. Ronald Koeman and his team face seven tricky encounters against Getafe, Ferencváros, Real Madrid, Juventus, Alavés, Dinamo Kyiv and Betis.
Clásico without fans
First up is Getafe (October 17 @ 9.00pm CEST), and although Barça have a decent record of late at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, it is a notoriously difficult place to get three points.
And a week after that comes the biggie. For the first time ever, El Clásico is being played behind closed doors (October 24). But that doesn’t take anything away from the immensity of the occasion.
