FC BARCELONA vs VALENCIA CF
Camp Nou (Barcelona) | Sun, Mar 14 | 19:00 CET



Barcelona have an important test at home, receiving Valencia in our stadium. The team lost the first position last weekend and this game probably comes in a good moment to show a reaction against a powerful team.

As always, the most important are the 3 points, but it's undeniable that we need a dose of optimism and, if it's against such an important rival, much better.

At this point, we don't know if Pep will be able to count on Ibra. With or without him, Barcelona must go for the 3 points and we can not find any kind of excuses.

We all know our rival. One of the most powerful attacking lines in Europe, who will test our defense, and an organized block that will always be a threat for us.

TOTS UNITS FER FORÇA! VISCA EL BARÇA I VISCA CATALUNYA!

Its going to be tough game... I would like to play this one without Ibra and let him rest for Stuttgart match... I would go with:

------------VV------------
Dani---Pique---Puyol---Max
-----------Yaya-----------
---Xavi----------Busi------
Messi-----Henry------Iniesta

Keita is still a long way out. I am also missing Abidal and he is a loooong way out.

I think Ibra will be allowed to play this game, the question is whether he will. Bring on Bojan.

A real test for us and another occasion for Villa to feel how good is to play in Nou Camp. Depending on his decisions in future, he can provide himself above 30 games per season there.

If we can not win this game, then we'd better reconcile with a trophyless season and turn our attention to Transfer Rumors and Elections threads.

There's not much to philosophize more.

Is Henry injured or just out of match shape?

Anyways I'd like to see:

------------VV------------
Dani---Pique---Puyol---Max
-----------Yaya-----------
---Xavi----------Iniesta---
Messi-----Bojan------Pedro

It is beyond words.

I guess they don't want to come out and say that the ref "made" a mistake.

Ibra suspended... what a total joke of RFEF
So did Pep.

And Canal+ made a video analysys and proved that the reasons for that red card that Clos Gomez wrote in his report don't hold water.

Yeah, but it's so evident in both cases... I mean, the video shows that Pep didn't say what the ref wrote in his report (basically, he invented a story, which is something to denounce) and the madridista linesman, aside crying the chances of Madrid that go to the post, is able to see what doesn't happen.

I have a feeling that Pep will bench Bojan even that Ibra is out.

Probably, it wouldn't be the first time. Messi as fake striker is a usual solution in these cases.

Henry to the rescue!!

IMO, this has been the case for a while now, the guy has to cover two positions not only one. I hope he scores, and both Puyi and Pique will stop Villa.

I want to see both Iniesta and Xavi in the middle, apparently Keita could be back for this game or against Stuttgart which is great news (Abidal in a couple of weeks). I want to see the following line up:

V.V-Alves-Puyi-Pique-Maxwell-Biscuits-Xavi-Iniesta-Pedro-Bojan-Messi

I have a feeling that Pep is going to use both Toure and Biscuits in the middle and shit Iniesta to LW, Messi as a CF and Pedro as a RW.
