Barcelona will hope to be top of La Liga by the next international break in November.
The Blaugrana are second, two points behind Real Madrid, but they'll have the opportunity to leapfrog their rivals in October 26's El Clasico.
Here's a look at their upcoming fixtures with predictions for each, and read on for a look at players to watch:
Oct. 19: Eibar vs. Barcelona, La Liga (0-2)
Oct. 23: Slavia Prague vs. Barcelona, Champions League (1-2)
Oct. 26: Barcelona vs. Real Madrid, La Liga (3-1)
Oct. 29: Barcelona vs. Real Valladolid, La Liga (3-0)
Nov. 2: Levante vs. Barcelona, La Liga (1-3)
Nov. 5: Barcelona vs. Slavia Prague, Champions League (4-0)
Nov. 10: Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo, La Liga (2-1)
After missing the first four matches of the season with a foot injury and another with an adductor problem, Lionel Messi finally got his first goal of the campaign for Barcelona in their 4-0 win over Sevilla last time out:
The superb free-kick was a milestone in more than one way:
04/05: 1 ⚽️ 05/06: 6 ⚽️ 06/07: 14 ⚽️ 07/08: 10 ⚽️ 08/09: 23 ⚽️ 09/10: 34 ⚽️ 10/11: 31 ⚽️ 12/13: 46 ⚽️ 13/14: 28 ⚽️ 14/15: 43 ⚽️ 15/16: 26 ⚽️ 16/17: 37 ⚽️ 17/18: 34 ⚽️ 18/19: 36 ⚽️ 19/20*: 1 ⚽️ Messi is the first to score in 16 consecutive La Liga seasons in the 21st century 👑 https://t.co/AqYa0Xqw70
Messi now has two more matches—although it would not be too surprising if he was rested during the Champions League trip to Prague—to fine-tune his game before Real's visit to the Camp Nou.
The Argentinian has netted 26 goals in El Clasico over the years, and he'll be eager to make up for lost time this season, so his performance against Real will be a must-watch.
Luis Suarez has also had to overcome some fitness problems this season—he missed a couple of games with a calf injury early on—but he's enjoying a fine scoring run.
He netted a sensational bicycle kick against Sevilla:
The goal was his fourth in three matches, following a brace against Inter and a strike against Getafe.
The 32-year-old isn't quite the same player he used to be, but his ability to win matches for Barcelona remains undiminished, and he's second only to Messi in that regard.
As Barca look to overtake Real in the coming weeks, his efforts will play an important role in determining how they fare.
A brace and an assist in a 5-2 win over Real Betis—for which Messi and Suarez were absent—in his second game was a promising start, but he's only scored one goal in his seven appearances since.
He was an unused substitute against Sevilla, as football writer Jeremy Smith observed:
The Frenchman will likely make a swift return to action against Eibar with Ousmane Dembele suspended after being sent off against Sevilla.
With Messi back in the side, Griezmann needs to use this run of games to develop chemistry with him and Suarez, because the success of his Barcelona career could well hinge on his ability to operate effectively alongside the pair.
