    What if we try using Neymar and Suarez as two roaming central strikers with Alba and Alves providing the width?

    ---------Neymar--------------------Suarez--------
    ------------------------------------------------
    --------------Sergi-------------------Rakitic------------
    ------------------------Busquets---------------------------
    -Alba-------------------------------------------------Alves
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    -----Verma/Bartra-----Mascherano-----Pique---------
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------Bravo------------------------

    Obviously 3 at the back. With Suarez ahead of Neymar; and Neymar dropping deeper in the number 10 spot; to provide extra creativity.

    Was thinking the same since playing with Munir and Sandro is like playing with 10 players. Except Iniesta instead of Sergi because one is injuried and Iniesta will return soon. If Messi won't return in time for el clasico I think Lucho will definitely consider playing with this line-up.

    Yes, once players like Iniesta and Messi return is a whole different story. And I think Munir and Sandro have proven to be effective for 30 minutes, their pressing and passing are sharp and very useful for a second half cameo. There are two things letting them down though, 1v1s and finishing. Once they get those they will be fantastic.

    The midfield completely smothered Bate, job well done. Good to see Neymar take over the team. Surely Bartra has to move ahead of Mathieu now?

    Yeah, Munir was invisible, ghostly- well, at least he was to Neymar and Bate's leftback. Yeah, backheel to Suarez instead...

    I always watch Barca. For those who are thinking otherwise, I know a few websites who upload full matches in HD right after the final whistle, so instead of missing our game, you could watch other interesting games a bit later.

    One being reddit's "footballhighlights"...
    I have been trying to download the 2 nil match against real madrid in 2011, and I don't know where to find it
