It's good that he's back, but I think Busquets should start tomorrow. It seems as Toure wasn't fit enough to be part of the squad against Valladolid, so I don't think that he's at 100% only a few days later.
Busquets did well and he's at 100%, so he should be the starter. We don't have to take any risks right now.

The BEAST is Back !!

Starting with Busquets imo is a very bad idea.
Bayern hav a great attack trio upfront and we cannot risk losing the ball midfield. Toure MUST play tomo. Itz the best chance we have !

Look at that pic, he's clearly losing in the "rondo" game and the others are laughing with him :) He'll be looking for revenge tomorrow...

First: I don't think Busquets is weaker in defence than Toure, atleast not by far.

Second: Bayern doesn't have an offensive player in the middle. The offensive ones, most notable Ribery, play on the wings. In the center they've got two defensive orientated players, van Bommel and Ze Roberto.

Busquets has better technique and passing skills than Toure in my opinion, and that's what we need tomorrow, 'cause Xavi and Iniesta will be facing two defensive midfielders. We are more dangerous with another player like Xavi or Iniesta on the pitch, and Busquets is the one who fullfills that best.
Plus, we play at home, so we can expect, that Bayern will play even more defensive tomorrow.

There is no way Busquets is a better passer than Yaya nor is he better at keeping posession. Our best 11 is with Yaya out there and I hope he is Wednesday.

I don't think Busquets is better than Yaya at all, this is a big game and we must put in the best and between the two Yaya surely comes out tops.

Toure is better in everything, busquet will never be as good as toure.
