Partido; Espanyol vs Real Madrid
Estadio; Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys
Time to think of the next game. Juande will tell his boys not to dwell too much on the Liverpool defeat and concentrate on cutting further into Barca's lead at the top. A win here would bring us to within four points, at least until Sunday when Barca are in town at Atletico. Gago did not make the squad list after twisting his ankle in the CL so Guti or Sneijder will partner Lass in midfield. Marcelo will probably continue at LW although we may see Guti and Sneijder start together instead. Upfront Huntelaar has three goals in our last two games and may get another start with Raul rested?
S.Ramos - Pepe - Cannavaro - Heinze
Robben - Lassana - Guti - Marcelo
Higuaín - Huntelaar
