Barcelona go into El Clasico with an amazing record in the temporary stadium

Barcelona have played their home games for this season at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, as a result of the new development work being undertaken at the Spotify Camp Nou. Despite being a home ‘away from home’ for the Catalans, it certainly didn’t feel that way for them.

The Catalan club have played seven games at the Olympic Stadium so far this season, and have amassed a 100 percent winning record.

They have beaten Cadiz, Real Betis, Celta Vigo, Sevilla and Athletic Club in La Liga, while Royal Antwerp and Shakhtar Donetsk have been the clubs they have beaten in the Champions League.

However, their toughest test will be when Real Madrid come to this stadium today (Saturday) for the first El Clasico of the season.

Los Blancos won on their last visit to the Catalan capital, beating Barcelona 4-0 at the Spotify Camp Nou in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final in April.

Barcelona will be confident of continuing their 100% record at home this season, although Real Madrid will provide their toughest test yet.

If they are to retain their La Liga crown, a win over their bitter rivals would go a long way.
