In light of the worrisome financial situation for Barcelona and the huge salaries of players suffocating the club, “Barca” decided to travel to play its first match in the new year by bus instead of plane to save money.
Last Sunday, the Barcelona club mission traveled to face Huesca in the 17th round of the Spanish Football League, on a bus to save nearly 30,000 euros.
This amount appears meager compared to the huge salaries that Barcelona players receive, but it is very important now for the team that suffers from a suffocating financial crisis, due to the repercussions of the spread of the Corona virus.
Barcelona’s players covered 300 kilometers in three hours before facing their host Huesca, but that did not prevent them from winning the match with a goal without response.
Barcelona is preparing to face Athletic Bilbao this evening, Wednesday, in a postponed match in the second round of the Spanish Football League.
The Catalan team ranks fifth in the league table with 28 points collected in 16 games, and is 10 points behind leaders Atlético Madrid, who played 15 games.
