Team News

  • The defeat in the San Siro in the Champions League has raised questions once again over Barça's alternative plan and ability to be labelled the very best.
  • Domestically they aren't having the same issues, and with only Adriano a doubt, Jordi Roura has plenty of options to freshen things up.
  • Alexis Sánchez, David Villa, Javier Mascherano and Thiago Alcántara should all get run outs, with the Copa del Rey approaching on Tuesday evening.
  • No problems for Sevilla as they saw off struggling Deportivo 3-1 on a Friday evening, with a rare Gary Medel brace.
  • Unai Emery has his own rotation issues with Atlético Madrid coming up in their return match in semi-final of the cup.
  • Hedwiges Maduro and Cicinho are free for selection, with Bryan Rabello and Emir Spahic unavailable.

Prediction

  • Both teams have a big match approaching in midweek, but neither can afford to take this game lightly.
  • Barcelona have won all but three matches at home in all competitions this season.
  • Emery's club has four wins from six, with the two defeats coming against the other top three La Liga teams.

  • How in the world is Messi MOTM?? Besides the goal given on a plate by Tello, he didn't do much. He messed up all 3 of his FKs as well.

  • Barca is going to get whooped again

  • 2-0 for Barca.
