Barcelona faces a test against a fellow Catalan side on Sunday when they host Girona FC, a team that has existed for 88 years but played its first season in La Liga in 2017/2018, according to The World Game, placing an impressive 10th on the table — and looking to better that finish under former Real Sociedad Coach Eusebio Sacristán this time around. But they face their toughest test so far when they venture into the Camp Nou for a Matchday Five showdown that will live stream from Barcelona.
“Girona are playing with no fear and they know they have nothing to lose. They had a great year last season, with an attacking mentality, and this year they have Eusebio. We’ll have to be very sharp because they are coming in-form,” Barecelona boss Ernesto Valverde warned ahead of the match, quoted by the BeSoccer site.
Barcelona comes into the match as La Liga’s only perfect team with wins in all four matches. The Blaugrana also scored a lopsided 4-0 UEFA Champions League defeat of Dutch titlists PSV Eindhoven, as Sky Sports reported. But Girona also have their own winning streak going as they enter Camp Nou, with back-to-back wins over Villareal and Celta, with only a loss to current table-toppers Real Madrid tarnishing their record.

Barcelona easily won last season’s corresponding fixture 6-1, but Valverde says that he expects to see a different approach from Girona at the Camp Nou on Sunday, according to Tribal Football.
“Having a coach like Eusebio, who knows our philosophy in detail, is an advantage for them,” the Barcelona boss said on Saturday. “Perhaps, this time they will play a bit deeper. I don’t remember loads about last year’s game, but maybe they left space. But they came in good form and it’s the same again this year.”
