Messi, at the reigns of the league leader
Lionel Messi is the world’s number 1 football player, and you can see him in action if you’re in town for a few days.
In January, Barça –the leading team in domestic competition- will play two league games and one Cup game at Camp Nou. The first encounter (January 6th at 19:00 (€57-153) is an unmatched rivalry, pitting them against the city’s other great team, RCD Espanyol. This local showdown is known as “the derby”.
The Cup game takes place on Thursday the 10th at 21:30, (€ 9-41) with Barça facing Cordoba, a seemingly modest rival that it already defeated in the away game. A victory will lead the “culés” to the quarterfinals of the competition. Barça’s final home game this month is against Osasuna (Sunday the 27th at 21:00. Date and time are provisional. €35-112), a squad that always makes things hard at home, but that should succumb easily to the quality of Barcelona’s players.
