Numancia v Barcelona Live
Barcelona head to La Liga newcomers Numancia on Sunday hoping to get their season off to a great start. Live Sport Network’s live football streams will be covering the match live online, so what better way to enjoy the first Spanish league games of the season than with us at Live Sport Network?.
Having had two very disappointing (by their standards) seasons where bitter rivals Real Madrid have won the league on both occasions, Barcelona will be looking for a marked improvement this season
The team have spent nearly €90 million in the close season in their attempt to close the gap with Real Madrid. The likes of Seydou Keita, Alexander Hleb, Daniel Alves, Cacares and Pique are all expected to bolster the squad whereas Zambrotta, Deco and Ronaldinho have all moved on to pastures new over the summer.
Although the defence has been strengthened considerably, it remains to be seen whether the attack can be a formidable force, especially after the departures of Deco and Ronaldinho. While the team still boast Thierry Henry and Eto in their ranks, it is the irrepressible Messi, just back from the Olympics and available for selection, who is bound to be the star man this season and all Barcelona fans eyes will be on him!
For their part, Numancia are back in the top flight after an absence of three seasons and will be hoping for better luck this time round. Facing Barcelona in the opening game of the season, albeit at home, is not a prospect that fills them with any great delight and if past results against the Catalan giants are anything to go by, they are in for a rough ride!
