*In Spanish…”no decir ni mu” means not to say a word (or not to make a sound). They made a pun with “Mou” and “mu”.
Barcelona defeated AD Ceuta 0-2 two weeks ago in a gritty Copa del Rey matchup that saw Pedro and Maxwell snatch the goals.

Gerard Pique participated in a photo shoot for the calendar of Fundació Ànima, a charity organization whose main aim is to give comprehensive assistance to children affected by chronic diseases and/or terminally illnesses.

Pep Guardiola attended the press conference prior to tomorrow’s King’s Cup game against AD Ceuta. The game is scheduled for 22:00 Barcelona time and will decide who moves on to the Round of 16 of the competition. FC Barcelona goes in with a two away goal advantage. In the press conference, the coach talked about a lot of different things such as the B team, Mourinho and the current state of the first team.
“I don’t want to fall into the trap of thinking that everything is already decided. We have to take this game seriously as it is an important competition.”
