Deulofeu stars in Barca win over Betis in shadow of terror attack

Manu Fernandez  AP

The brutal terrorist attack on Barcelona's most famous street, La Rambla, left 17 people dead and many more injured on Thursday afternoon as a van ploughed into unsuspecting tourists in the city centre.

Guardiola is now manager at Manchester City but he enjoyed a glittering playing and coaching career with Barcelona, delivering a host of trophies. A lot of Barca socis are probably still away on their August holidays, while recent poor performances including the Clasico loss, the departure of Neymar and the lack of new signings will have done little to help ticket sales over the past few days. Las Ramblas is an important place in the history of Barcelona. "All our thoughts are with the victims, their families and with the people of Barcelona", the tweet read. "I am sure the city and the country will stand up and move on". Betis aren't going to just lie down, though, and they've got the ability to scrap with anyone - if Barcelona start slow against their visitors, they could be in for even more blows to their confidence.

The club announced Ernesto Valverde's team will wear black armbands at their Spanish league opener against Real Betis on Sunday - as will all other La Liga clubs - and will also hold a minute's silence at the game.

Players had the word "Barcelona" instead of their names on the back of their shirts, and the Catalan hashtag "TOTSSOMBARCELONA" (We are all Barcelona) was on display around the Camp Nou stadium.

The Camp Nou will hold a minute silence in recognition and memory of the victims.

Espanyol, also based in Barcelona, published photographs of their squad linking arms in a circle to pay their respects.

The Chua family had considered cancelling their trip from Singapore to see tonight's match but made a last minute decision to go. The memorial service was led by Spain's King Felipe and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

The Argentinian played over 250 games for Espanyol over three separate spells and in 2009 he started his coaching career there.

"We can't live with fear, which is exactly the mentality that these situations normally cause and people don't want to leave the house", said Vanessa Hano, 28, an American Barcelona resident. "I want to show her the lovely people and city".
