Barça has a decisive week coming up dominated by Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday.

Next weekend, Tito Vilanova’s team welcomes Betis to the Camp Nou which – depending on the result of game involving Real Madrid – could see Barça confirm the league title.

It’s yet another crucial week ahead for Barça with matches against Bayern and Betis in the Camp Nou.  On Wednesday, Barça will face a difficult, but not impossible, task against Bayern, followed by a return to league action on Sunday against Betis (kick-off 9 pm).   Depending on Real Madrid’s result on Saturday, Barça could clinch the league title with four games still to be played.

The players will have rest days on Monday and Friday.  On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday they’ll train at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, while on Wednesday and Sunday there’ll be pre-match training sessions in the Camp Nou.
