Barcelone surprises by Mark Cloostermans download in iPad, ePub, pdf

On a warm day, I just like to sit and stare at the fountain. Then a few months ago, I went back with a friend to show her how amazing the city is.

Sevilla were cheering every pass by the finish. Beaches No trip to Barcelona is complete without a visit to its famous beaches.

Luka Modric had a goal ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee, his ankle straying just offside, before Gareth Bale missed a one-on-one. Three years later, I returned again.

And every time I come back, Barcelona surprises and inspires me anew. By the end, Atletico Madrid, who had cruised to victory over Huesca on Tuesday and play Real on Saturday, were the biggest winners. Below is my suggested Barcelona itinerary for your trip.

Take a bottle of wine, grab some ham, and have a picnic. Today the league isn't lost but we might miss these three points at the end of the season. We have to concede fewer goals and be more solid.

Twice Jesus Navas sped away on the counter-attack, and twice he found Andre Silva, the first time with a deliberate cut-back, the second when his shot was palmed out for a rebound. Wissam Ben Yedder added a third six minutes before the interval, volleying in from close range after the Madrid defence had pushed out. The area is a maze of tiny streets that turn around on each other and open into lovely squares and plazas. After a stuttering start, Diego Simeone's side will jump above Real with a win at the Santiago Bernabeu. For both, it was their first defeat of the season and for both, defensive fragility was the key factor and a major concern with the second round of Champions League games to come next week.

So is the form of Pique, who was also at fault against Girona and will almost certainly start against Spurs, with Umtiti suspended.
