Watching Barcelona FC in their Home Town

Photograph by Eve W, taken mid-match.

During the Photography visit to Barcelona three students were lucky enough to attend the Champions League football match between Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven at Camp Nou. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch a game at Barcelona’s home stadium, which is the third biggest football stadium in the world.

The match got off to a great start as Messi scored the first goal in the thirty first minute, and after half time, Dembele scored Barcelona’s second goal in the seventy fourth minute. Messi then went on to score two more goals, taking Barcelona to a 4-0 victory and earning himself a hat trick.

For two of the students this was their first time attending a football match and the opportunity to do this in such a world famous stadium made it extra special. After the game had finished the students were able to look around the stadium and were amazed by the immense size. They then had the chance to take some great photos to remember their experience.
