This is a quite incredible, why Guardiola wants to risk Getafe game by playing Messi, Eto'o,Iniesta and Xavi? Seems that our tridente on Saturday is Henry-Bojan-Hleb and that is ridiculous concerning how crucial that game is


Colossal Goal by Keita...

Didn't agree with the team selection, but oh well. Job done.

I thought the first defense would play, but that we would inject new blood in the attack (Hleb, Bojan). Hopefully, Pep doesn't pay for his choice this weekend.

does anyone know what yellow card situation looks like? i mean who would miss the next game in case of getting a yellow...

Should've used Hleb, Bojan and bring on another 2 fringe players. We need these guys fresh. Getting really worried we will end up empty handed as RM just seem to keep grinding out results.

We needed to put that line-up out there to contain Bayern and ensure they do not get to adventurous. It wasn't a bad performance nor was it one where the players had to toil excessively.

Still, everything adds up and it will be interesting to see how Pep approaches the Getafe game. Perhaps it is better to play a weakened line-up against Getafe.

Abidal looked like a player coming back after a long lay-off, yet it was great to see him back in action.

Maybe Pedro will get a call-up against Getafe so that Messi and Iniesta can get a rest.

You have to feel there is a sense of conviction within the team now that this is their season. Things could still go wrong but this Barca side are primed to lift trophies.
