Just some dates to remember as we while away these last summer days:
Our first games this season will be the Supercopa de España and the CL qualification playoff round. The third round of CL qualifications (which will determine which teams will be in the pool to play us) finishes up August 3 and 4, and then the draw for the playoff matchups is Aug. 6. The playoffs themselves are then played Aug 17-18 (first leg) and Aug 24-25 (second leg). Wiki’s page has a pretty good list of the matchups as well as the teams currently in the running if you’re interested. Of course interspersed in there will also be the Supercopa matches…suddenly August is looking very busy for our boys!
If you like your information in lists:
Aug 6: CL playoff draw
Aug 14: Supercopa Leg 1
Aug 17-18: CL Playoff Leg 1
Aug 21: Supercopa Leg 2
Aug 24-25: CL Playoff Leg 2
Aug 28-29: La Liga Matchday 1
Sept 14-15: CL Matchday 1
That means we’re less than 3 weeks away from the first big game of the year!!! Vamos mi Sevilla!!!
