well,i believe after the espanyol match we really have cause to question this team.I for one doesn't see the competence of Henry and valdes they are not good enough and we must accept that,12points wasn't cosiderable and madrid now have self believe that they can catch up with us that is the more reason we must not drop against Athletico otherwise...All the same i strongly believe Hleb should be used regular so that he steps up his game.I just don't know why he chose Keita over him,someone who i believe was the waste signing of the summer,All the same i hope we are focussed for this lyon game else we will start licking our wounds soon.Lets call a spade a spade.We have lost our spark and fatigue is setting in,Forget about the ref derbies always turn out to be so.We needed to take our chances.Up BARCA

I watched Lyon play Saturday n they looking good. They rested all their keys players. They just moved clear 6 points into 1st place and are once again dominating the Ligue 1.

Not to mention Keita, Grosso, Juninho, and Ederson, Benzema, and Vercoutre were all rested. Juninho and Ederson and Benzema came in around 60', 70', 80 min and Benzema still managed to score a sic*goal outside the 18 @ the 90th min mark.

Been watching them play past month and i think we all in for some match up. More than we thought... Lyon is looking well in form and Benzema is looking unstoppable. He has 3 goals in 4 games.

I expect a very good comeback from BARCA starting from the match against lyon. I expect a 2-0 or 3-1 win.Lyon are good but they have big troubles in their defence.

If messi and Henry play well then we will destroy them because their flanks are not that good.
IF we score first then everything will be easy.
