The Cup draw leaves January without rebates for Barca

The match against Osasuna, the derby against Espanyol and may complement the hard classical picture of Barca earlier this year.

With the match against Osasuna and the possible crossing against Real Madrid and Malaga in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, was completed on schedule FC Barcelona in January promises to be super-duper. Will match the week and weekend if Barca fail to remove the 'rojillos' in the second round.

The first match will take place precisely at Osasuna on Wednesday, January 4 at the Camp Nou and from ten at night. The danger of this meeting lies above all in the closeness of the Christmas season and its excesses, as well as the fact that so important a player as Leo Messi Barca have returned just two days before the crash, with the state so that it can lead the party face. Keep in mind that the Sunday after Barça facing the derby against Espanyol after 21:30 and Xavi and Messi both travel the next day at the Zurich Ballon d'Or, gala Both are nominated for Player of the Year by the Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo.

Once it is buttoned Zurich, Barça will focus on the return copera against Osasuna, to be played on Thursday 12 from 22:00 pm at the Reyno de Navarra. The following Sunday (day 15) Betis which will visit the stadium from 21:30.

In the event that Barça remove the 'rojillos', will again midweek match between the winner of the tie between Real Madrid and Malaga, with the first leg away from home. Subsequently, the League would visit the stadium and take on The Rose Garden Malaga, with exact time and date yet to be determined between Saturday 21 and Sunday 22. Then touch around the quarter-finals of Copa del Rey in the Camp Nou against the winner of that tie, between Andalusia and Madrid rivals. Finally, the month of January would be closed the weekend of 28 or 29 with a new travel league, this time to Villarreal always dangerous terrain.

This busy beginning of the year would be only a foretaste of things to come, with a February in which, in addition to the league championship, they would play the semifinals of Copa del Rey and which come into play in the Champions League. Next to nothing. (via MD)
