Nolito transfer to Barcelona in doubt as Celta face Enrique

espnfc.com — Meetings with Celta Vigo have turned into particularly special fixtures for Barcelona in recent years. Eduardo Berizzo's unwavering dedication to attacking football means a spectacle is guaranteed when the two teams lock horns, while an abundance of side-stories only further add to the drama.

theguardian.com — Bring out the bunting, crack open the champagne and reach for your dictionaries - one of Spain's great entertainers is back.

Barcelona club record unbeaten run not the ultimate goal

espnfc.com — "Kaptoum!" It's a word that sounds like it should always have an exclamation mark at the end and accompany every punch thrown by Batman and Robin, written in big letters inside a cartoon explosion. On Wednesday night at Mestalla, certainly. There were just six minutes to go and it was going wrong, time was running out, the end was nigh.

Sporting Gijon held to draw by Rayo Vallecano

espnfc.com — Sporting Gijon twice squandered the lead as they were held to a 2-2 draw by relegation rivals Rayo Vallecano in a result which leaves both clubs still nervously looking over their shoulders.
