    Saturday evening will see Barcelona host Girona at the Camp Nou and the match will also give Colombian football fan Jose Richard the opportunity to fulfil his dream of experiencing a Blaugrana match at the famous stadium.
    Richard is registered deaf-blind and in order to know what is happening on the pitch he relies upon Cesar Daza, his aid, who uses a special form of language with his hands.
    After being born with a low hearing capacity, the Colombian lost his hearing completely at nine years of age before fully losing his sight when he was 15.
    It was at this point his life changed dramatically.
    "I tried to kill myself, "he told MARCA.
    "God gave me the strength to fight and overcome adversity.
    "Cesar is my interpreter, my guide and my brother."
    Religion and football have been the two guiding lights in his life, yet Daza's presence has allowed him to keep experiencing the game he loves.
    Daza started working with Richard to help develop a way of seeing football for people with similar disabilities, and it's this project which has led the pair to Barcelona.
    A partnership with LaLiga beckons, with the pair having invented a board that deaf-blind people can use in conjunction with hand movements to fully understand what is happening on the pitch.
    "The idea came from Jose, we started playing the game on a board," Daza explained to MARCA.
    "The board is the pitch and then, between the two of us, we decided on a series of signals.
    "He knows what a shot is, as well as a pass into the penalty area and a header."
    Rather poetically, the inseparable pair actuallyly follow rival teams in Colombia, with one a supporter of Millonarios and the other of Santa Fe.
    To put this into context, this is the Colombian equivalent of Barcelona and Real Madrid or Boca Juniors and River Plate.
    There had been concerns as to how Richard would be received at Santa Fe, because when the two teams face each other he wears his Millonarios shirt, yet Daza believes the true power of football is acceptance and respect.
    "When I saw him wear that, I was worried because I realise football is sometimes dangerous," he admitted.
    "At first I was afraid, but everyone respects us.
    "This is why we now want to spread a message of peace and tolerance in stadiums."
    The match at the Camp Nou on Saturday night will kick off at 20:45 CET.

    You've made a useful post for once, instead of incessantly trolling.
