Full Time Highlights: Rubin Kazan 0 - Barcelona 0


We went, we saw, we draw... This should have been the match to bring us to the next round, but it wasn't. We missed our (few) chances so, now, we are in third position and have a difficult match at Kiev and we play Inter in Barcelona. Things have complicated, but we should be optimistic, nevertheless. Take a look at how the match went.

Prematch: Rubin Kazan - Barcelona (Champions League)


Wednesday is the day we get some vengeance!! Wait, it sounds a bit rude... Let's see, today Kazan, tomorrow Europe!! Mmm, not getting there quite yet. So, we win  Kazan, we get ourselves half the ticket to next Champions League round. Ok, now?

This match is more important than it seems, as the next match would be against Dinamo Kiev in what may be worse weather conditions. It's the time to assure Barça's classifies.

These are the ones that go to Kazan:

Valdés, Pinto, Puyol, Abidal, Maxwell, Márquez, Piqué, Touré Yaya, Sergio Busquets, Keita, Xavi, Iniesta, Henry, Messi, Pedro, Jeffren, Ibrahimovic y Bojan.

Also, Alves may be back, he has recovered from his muscular injury and is travelling with the team just in case. His side of the team is hurting without him, Osasuna's goal came from that side and Marquez's shape isn't helping either.

Henry and Touré are also going with the team and may play as both are also recovered and ready to play.

Tomorrow we'll post the usual lineup guess. (even Kazan's)

There's a lot of talk in the press about the weather in Kazan. It's expected that at the playing time, 20:30 local time (2 hours less in Barcelona) there could be from 0 ºC to -6 ºC with some wind wich could worsen the overall cold feeling. We have not to worry about the playing field, as Russian stadiums are prepared with under earth heating.

Weather forecast for this week at Kazan (at least it won't snow tomorrow!!)

Dreamcheers, the Barça Cheerleaders


The Dream Cheers are the Barça Cheerleaders, considered one of the best in Europe. Funny, pretty and they really can dance!

They've been looking for new members for their team and put a video asking for new members. The casting was on the 31st of October and more than one hundred girls answered the call. The casting asked them to show their best choreography and dance in order to be selected by the jury. It will be a tough call as only thirty can arrive to the final selection. We hope can see more of them soon. Let's enjoy the Dreamcheers!

The Dreamcheers Casting Call

You can see then every home basketball match of Regal Barça, the basketball team of FC Barcelona. People really look like having fun!

Before we end, let's hear a salute from some of the girls.

Awaiting their call, smiling

We salute you, culés!
