It will be an action-packed week for Barcelona as the club plays two La Liga games in its bid to catch up with the rest of the league after a delayed start to the season.

Barcelona, who began their 2020-21 Spanish league campaign after their UEFA Champions League commitments ran deep last season, sit fifth on the La Liga standings with 28 points in 16 games.

Captain Lionel Messi, who recently scored his 645th goal for Barcelona -- breaking Pele’s record for most goals for a single club -- continued his fine form as he provided the assist to Frenkie de Jong in their 1-0 victory over SD Huesca last time out.

Barcelona travel to Athletic Club on Wednesday (Thursday morning in India) as they aim to continue their six-game unbeaten streak.

They will also face Granada later in the week and draw level with the rest of the league for the number of matches played. Watch Athletic Club vs Barcelona on live streaming in India.
