When do Barcelona start La Liga season and will Messi play for them?


Lionel Messi Barcelona

Most of Europe's major leagues have gotten the 2020-21 season underway, with the likes of the Premier League and Bundesligaresuming in September.

Barcelona will kick off their La Liga campaign at home to Villarreal on Sunday September 27.

The match will be played at 8pm BST (3pm ET).

Messi shook the football world to its core after he informed Barcelona that he wished to leave in the summer ahead of his contract expiring in 2021.

The Argentine'sdecision cameduring a time of extreme difficulty at the club, exacerbatedby their recent 8-2 humiliation to Bayern in the Champions League.

His relationship with club president Josep Bartomeu had also been deteriorating.

In an exclusive interview with Goal, however, Messi then stated that he intended on remaining at Barcelona for at least another year after he revealed that he did not wish to take his club to court – which was the only way he would be able to opt out of his contract.

After pledging his short-term future to the Catalan side, Messi is expected to feature in Barcelona's inaugural La Liga game of the season - having participated in the side's pre-season games and netting twice in a pre-season friendly against Girona in mid-September.

“I thought and was sure that I was free to leave, the president always said that at the end of the season I could decide if I stayed or not,” he said in the interview.

“Now they cling to the fact that I did not say it before June 10, when it turns out that on June 10 we were competing forLa Ligain the middle of this awful coronavirus and this disease altered all the season.
