Barcelona didn’t had the success they would have aimed for last season and they will be desperate for regaining their number one status this season. They start their preparations with pre-season games playing their style of football.
Barca boss Xavi will be looking to win all of these games with the squad at their disposal. They will look to keep a clean sheet as possible and be very attacking in the final third.
Barcelona next play against MLS outfit Inter Miami in a week or so in America.
On the other hand, Olot a fifth tier Spanish outfit will have a world class opponent at their disposal to learn a lot. They will look to play quality football.
