Please come join us at Elephant and Castle (19th and I ST NW) on Saturday 5/5/12 @ 3:00pm as Barça hosts Espanyol in the second city derby of the season! This match is more than just an exciting rivalry, it will also be Pep Guardiola’s last game on the Camp Nou bench as manager of FCB. A sad day for us all, but we’ll look forward to a great match to lift our spirits.

These two teams last met on Jan 8th when a late 86th minute equalizer from Espanyol gave them a 1-1 draw and saw FCB fall 7 points behind Real Madrid. While the Blaugrana came close, they were never able to recover from this gap. Revenge will be in the air at Camp Nou!

As if any extra excitement was needed – Messi is currently sitting at the top of the Pichichi table (most goals in the season) with 46 goals to his name. He’ll be looking to extend his 2 goal lead over C. Ronaldo when FCB faces Espanyol.

A lot of reasons you don’t want to miss all the action at Elephant and Castle this weekend!!

Visca El Barça i Visca GUARDIOLA!!!

La Liga Week 27: Barça @ Racing Santander, Sunday 3/11/12 @ 1:00pm

Please come join us at Elephant and Castle (19th and I ST NW) on Sunday 3/11/12 @ 1:00pm as Barça travels to Santander to compete against Racing de Santander. FCB moves back to La Liga action coming off an unbelievable mid-week performance in the Champions League. The defending European champions knocked out Bayer Leverkusen in fashion on the back of a FIVE goal performance from Messi. After 90+ the scoreline was 7-1 and FCB was moving to the round of 8. They will be looking to repeat all the excitement this weekend when they meet with Racing.

Racing on the other hand has only La Liga to compete in this year. They have had a rough go of it with only 4 wins. It seems that rather than competing for any trophies this year they will be competing just to stay in the top league. They currently sit in 18th place which is the first spot in the relegation zone. The last time these two teams faced off FC Barcelona came out on top 3-0. However, that was at the Camp Nou. Santander have won or tied 10 of 13 games played at their home where this weekend’s game will be played.

Don’t miss all the action at Elephant and Castle this weekend!!

La Liga Week 25: Barça @ Atletico Madrid, Sunday 2/26/12 @ 3:30pm

Please come join us at Elephant and Castle (19th and I ST NW) on Sunday 2/26/12 @ 3:30pm as Barça travels to Madrid to face At. Madrid. FCB is coming off a stellar performance after a “Messi” start in last week’s league game. La Pulga put four on the score board to help the Blaugrana coast to a 5-1 victory over Valencia. Meanwhile Atletico Madrid has tied their last three league games. While they currently sit in 6th place in the league table, much like Barça, they have had a season of ups and downs. However unlike Barça, these ups and downs leave At. Madrid in the midst of a very crowded mid table.

Last time these two teams met FCB ran over Atletico Madrid with a 5-0 romping at Camp Nou. With At. Madrid looking to remain in a Europa League spot (they currently hold the last spot awarded to the Spanish league) they will be desperate for any and every point from here to the end of the season. This makes the meeting at the Vicente Calderon a clean slate. Don’t miss all the action at Elephant and Castle this weekend!!

Visca El Barça i Visca Catalunya!
