An exciting week saw the UEFA Champions League and Europa League group stages kick off, with many clubs getting ready for a busy portion of their 2016-17 schedule.
We look at five key matches around the European leagues this weekend.
4LA LIGA – CD LEGANES vs. BARCELONA
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 17TH – ESTADIO MUNICIPAL DE BUTARQUE
When Barcelona and manager Luis Enrique looked at the upcoming schedule last week to find consecutive matches against newly promoted clubs, one would assume they felt confident in finding victories in both contests.
But Deportivo Alaves had other ideas.
A 2-1 home loss shocked the Camp Nou, and Barca will need to rebound against Leganes Saturday afternoon. After the 7-0 destruction of Celtic midweek in the Champions League, MSN should be up to the challenge.
