Barcelona to potentially play 4 games in the next 9 days


The hectic schedule of FC Barcelona from January 19th to January 28th

Having gone through an already grueling 10 days of a barrage of games consistently piling up, Barcelona are now on the cusp of facing another batch of potentially 4 opponents over the course of the next 9 days.

Fresh off the heels of a stunning El Clasico win in the Spanish Super Cup final no less, FC Barcelona will be in an extremely rejuvenated mood and would very much be a team finding their best groove on the field.

Playing through their previous fixtures with results and grace simultaneously, these next few games should be of a relatively lower quality in comparison to their previous level of opponents. From facing the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Betis, and just recently Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup, FC Barcelona now find lesser quality in terms of their opponents. Next up, the Catalans encounter opponents from both La Liga and the Copa Del Ray.

FC Barcelona vs Ceuta FC

Barcelona kick off this 9-day onslaught of games against AD Ceuta, a team that in terms of their own league standings are strictly quite below par and full of struggles, currently at the very bottom of the table. However, playing in the Copa Del Ray Round of 32 already provides Barcelona ample reasoning not to underestimate their opponents, as cup ties are never quite straightforward.

Match Details:

  • Date: Thursday, 19th January 2023
  • Competition: Copa Del Rey
  • Round: Round of 16
  • Venue: Alfonso Murube Stadium
  • Time: 08:00 pm Central European Time

FC Barcelona vs Getafe CF:

Following the matchup against AD Ceuta, FC Barcelona return to league action in La Liga Santander, having to face 15th-placed Getafe in order to continue their ongoing pursuit of the La Liga title itself, ensuring they do not lose out on their current 3-point advantage on top of the table.

Match Details:

  • Date: Sunday, 22nd January 2023
  • Competition: La Liga
  • Round: Matchday 17
  • Venue: Camp Nou
  • Time: 06:30 pm Central European Time

FC Barcelona vs TBD:

Hypothetically, if Barcelona manage to defeat AD Ceuta, the clash on Wednesday would then be the Quarter-finals of the Copa Del Ray in which Barcelona would face an opponent from another winning tie out of the other Round of 16 games.

Match Details:

  • Date: Wednesday, 25th January 2023
  • Competition: Copa Del Rey
  • Round: Quarter Final
  • Venue: TBD
  • Time: 08:00 pm Central European Time

FC Barcelona vs Girona FC:

Lastly, FC Barcelona will have another league fixture to compete in on the 9th day, another away fixture against 11th placed Girona FC, which would then be the last of the possible 4 fixtures during these 9 days, with Barcelona having played only one game at the Spotify Camp Nou during this time after returning from Saudi Arabia.

Match Details:

  • Date: Saturday, 28th January 2023
  • Competition: La Liga
  • Round: Matchday 18
  • Venue: Estadi Montilivi
  • Time: 04:15 pm Central European Time

Just as before, the upcoming matches will be a real test of Barcelona’s consistency, and although a little rest would not be a bad idea, this is just the situation the Catalans are in and must make the most of. Another 4 matches that can be pivotal to the season, but after that El Clasico win, Xavi’s team feels like one with a rekindled flame inside.
