FC Barcelona are in the middle of a marathon of games in the lead up to Christmas. The Catalans will play three away games in a row in three different competitions in only eight days following the nil-nil draw against Málaga at the Camp Nou.
Luis Enrique's men start in Glasgow with the fifth round of the Champions League at Celtic Park on Wednesday 8.45pm CET on BeIN Sports. The blaugranas lead Group C with nine points and will qualify for the round of 16 if they beat Celtic.
Barça have reason to be optimistic ahead of the visit to Celtic Park. Three years ago in 2013/14 Barça beat the Scottish team 1-0 thanks to a Cesc Fabregas goal. The season before this Celtic managed to win 2-1.
Four days later, the team travel to Anoeta stadium in San Sebastian to take on Real Sociedad on Sunday 27 at 8.45pm CET on Movistar Partidazo. The game is the thirteenth LaLiga fixture of the season and victory is essential following the draw with Málaga. Anoeta is a stadium that has proven to be difficult and in the last four seasons Barça have lost on all four visits.
After the game against Real Sociedad, Barça start their Copa del Rey campaign on Wednesday 30 at 10pm CET. The Catalans visit José Rico Pérez stadium to face Hércules in the first leg of the round of 32. The last game against the team from Alicante was in the league in the 2010/11 season and it ended in a 3-0 victory for Guardiola's Barça.
