20 August 2023 - 5:52 pm

The “Louis Companes Olympic Stadium” will host the Barcelona match against Cadiz in the second round of the Spanish League this season. The match will take place this evening, Sunday, at 8:30 pm local time. The match will be broadcast on beIN Sports HD 1.

In its first match in the league, Barcelona drew 0-0 with Getafe away from home. Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez received a red card for protesting the referee, and Brazilian player Rafinha was also sent off for his violent tackle.

Hernandez and Rafinha were suspended for two matches by the Competitions Committee of the Spanish Federation, which will lead to their absence from today’s match as well as the Villarreal match in the third round.

Barcelona seeks to achieve its first victory in the league this season, while Cadiz seeks to continue the victories after its first victory over Deportivo Alaves. Xavi is considering the seismic quartet, Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres and Lamine Yamal to compensate for the absence of Rafinha in the attack.

Today, Sunday 8-20-2023, the Spanish club Barcelona was keen to send a message to the Argentine international, Lionel Messi, the former team captain and the current American Inter Miami player, after winning his first title with his new team.

Messi was crowned the American League Cup, after his team, Inter Miami, defeated Nashville, 10-9, on penalties, after the end of the regular time, with a draw with a goal for each team.

And the official account of FC Barcelona wrote on the social networking site Twitter: “Congratulations to Lionel Messi for becoming the most crowned footballer of all time!”

He added, “44 cups. We are proud to be part of this amazing story.”

Messi won the tournament’s top scorer award with 9 goals in 6 matches, in addition to the best player award, and won his team, Inter Miami, the first championship in the club’s history.

It is worth noting that Messi won 35 championships with Barcelona, including 10 La Liga titles, 7 King’s Cups, 8 Spanish Super Cups, 4 European Champions Leagues, 3 European Super Cups, and 3 Club World Cups.

Messi joined the ranks of Barcelona in 2000, and began his career in the first team starting in 2004 and continued with the Catalan team until he left in 2021, to Paris Saint-Germain, before he reached his last stop in the American League with Inter Miami.
