    FC Barcelona first team trains at the Ciutat Esportiva with an eye on Wednesday's visit of BATE Borisov

    After taking Sunday off following the win at Getafe, the FC Barcelona first team was back at work on a blustery, drizzly Monday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva, with manager Luis Enrique’s attention now switching to Wednesday’s visit of BATE Borisov for the fourth game in Champions League Group E.

    Gerard Gumbau, Joan Campins, David Babunski, Aitor Cantalapiedra and Sergi Palencia, all of Barça B, also joined the session, as did Paik of the U19 squad.
    The team has just one more training session, on Tuesday morning, before the 8.45pm CET kick-off the following day at the Camp Nou.

    But true indeed, not expecting anything other than a win here, leverkuzen and roma after this one won't be easy, we should absolutely get the 3pts here.
    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.

    No not really. The first place could already be secured for example and that'd make the game a good opportunity for youngsters and squad rotations. But I understand what you're saying, most of Barça's games are indeed must win

    Should be an easy win and a good time to rotate, I just don't see BATE getting anything out of this game.

    I hope Iniesta can go for an hour in this one, this is a good game for him to shed some rust.

    Ter Stegen
    Sergi Roberto Pique Mathieu Alba
    Busquets
    Rak Iniesta
    Pick one Suarez Neymar

    Bring on Alves for Iniesta when he starts to fade. Get a good lead, take off a couple more stars.

    @PhilS - Masche going for sure in this one as he can't play in the league for 2 games.

    Yep, good call. Think it should be in the midfield too in order to get Vermaelen and or Batra some min at CB. Might be too risky but I might think of resting Neymar or Suarez for this game too.

    Great, looking forward to seeing him at CB. Mathieu was really good last game, but Pique Masch is still the best pair.

    Campins and Palencia are rightbacks, Aitor is a forward, Paik is a midfielder. They're all pretty good. Don't know how Campins has been since his return from injury though.

    Alves ,Mache, Vermaelen, Alba
    Samper
    Roberto, Iniesta
    Neymar
    Sandro, Munir

    Campins or Palencia sub Alves
    Rafinha or Rakitic sub Iniesta
    Suarez sub Neymar

    If we lead of course :
    55-60 min : Roberto in for Iniesta
    65-70 min : Busquets in for Rakitic
    70-80 min : Munir in for Sandro

    Busquets needs to rest a little bit in my opinion and he will be needed against Villareal.

    Villareal should be a nice game to prepare our classic Rakitic--Busquets--Iniesta midfield for El Classico. But no game should be overloooked, let's beat Bate.
