The other semi-final, Hamburg-Werder Bremen, will be played tonight.

Pep - Quick questions, where you have not noted "right back" is that an indication that he played as one of the two Central Defenders?

I am glad he's been playing Right Back actually as he need a capable back up there more than another central defender (if Milito ever comes back we'll have Puyol, Marquez, Pique, Milito and Caceres plus Henrique), whereas only Puyol covers for Alves right now. Wonder if Bayern is playing him there as a favor to Barca or as a result of injuries? Any info? Thanks again for this great blog!

Thanks, Gilman. And yes, his "normal" position is central defender, that's why I don't mention that.

As I've understood, their usual right back Castro has been injured and they had two other guys (Sinkiewicz and Haggui) to play alongside Friedreich in centre defense while no real option to play at the right, that's why Henrique moved to the right.
