Breaking News ! Barcelona vs Girona LIVE! Barcelona's preparations for the new season continue with a preseason friendly against Girona this evening. Barca's 2019/20 season ended in desperate fashion: the Blaugrana lost their LaLiga title to rivals Real Madrid before crashing out of the Champions League semi-finals in a humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich. That defeat cost Ernesto Valverde his job, while talisman Lionel Messi tried and failed to leave the club as Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu won the contract standoff - for now, at least. New head coach Ronald Koeman now has the huge task of attempting to bring an openly defiant Messi back onside, while Barca must find a way to restore their domestic dominance and also compete in Europe. With kick-off at 6pm BST, follow the action with Ben Hayward!
