  • Stegen 6,6?? are you drunk hahaahahahaha

  • Ter Stegen with only 6,6?

  • @Davisson Should be 8 or 9!

  • Juanmi is fully responsible for this result. He wasted 4 clear chances, 4 one on ones.

  • @CirdomAkul To be honest just great saves by Ter Stegen. And only 2 clear chances, two were half chances.

  • @alexreg Ter Stegen is excellent but I don't consider shots to the chest great saves !

  • Mats is my motm

  • messi had a pretty poor game and so did dembele but according to stats, it is good.

  • @BarcaPlsLetMeDown so whats new?

  • 1:2

  • 1-3

  • Over25

  • I love the way Barcelona plays, they pass so well. Imagine how much they would rock if they had Rooney or Aguero. I think they'll win here - expect a tight game with lots of set pieces from inside the area.

  • @tristankleyn Rooney is an ex-player gone to enjoy retirement in the MLS (a league for senior players to retire in comfort) and Aguero has nothing on Suarez. Ask Messi how many titles would he have won with his NT had Suarez been Argentinian

  • @tristankleyn Suarez > Rooney & Aguero

  • Willian Jose, Januzaj and Llorente are all injured for this game, also Messi and co. who skipped the int break are fully rested. Furthermore, the Anoeta curse was acutally lifted 2 years ago when we won them in Copa del Rey. I personally wouldn't go with Coutinho as nr 8 in this game tho because Sociedad have pretty decent pressing game and physical midfield which could exploit his weaknesses. My predicted 11: ter Stegen; Alba, Pique, Lenglet (Umtiti will get rest after a tough int break), Roberto; Arthur, Busquets, Rakitic; Ousmane, Suarez (who still should be benched imo but unlikey because Cancerverde has no balls), Messi. If all goes to plan, I fancy Ousmane to score again this game as Messi will feed him with diagonal through balls, with Ousmane in a similar role to Neymar in 14-15.

  • @Messidinho Luckily Valverde "has no balls", other wise Suarez wouldn't have been there to score the 1st and obstructing the goalie in the corner kick leading to the second... smh

  • @Messidinho so you think suarez should be benched for what? he has started scoring in his last two games including the uruguay game

  • @BarcaPlsLetMeDown He needs rest after the International break

  • Barça can win this game. I think 1-3, but the anoeta is the most unpredictable field for Barcelona.

  • Barca ll win as rested Messi,Pique n Alba ll wreak havoc...Anoeta curse was lifted last year as well

  • 1-1
