    Can't see us loosing points here tbh.

    And finally the team will have a week's rest after that !!
    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.

    Gijon's defense is a fucking joke all season. Plus, our team probably wants to make up for that last home game against Valencia and give the crowd a real show. I would bet on another game where all of MSN score and Suarez with another hattrick.

    Good that's only Sporting as this match comes soon after last night's win and we do have some fitness issues.

    Hopefully another big win and we get to see Rafinha and Roberto play even more minutes.
    And how do you leave Bartra on the bench after such a good match vs. Depor.

    How could you possibly want us to drop Mascherano when he's been far and away our most consistent performer over the last month and any point drop would kill us. I'd like Bartra and Raf to get minutes too, but priorities.

    Have you noticed how our always "playing best team provided they're fit" is one of the reason why we ended up so fatigued and in turn went onto a losing streak? And now you want us to keep playing the same players all the way to the CdR final?

    It's Gijon at home. Perfect opportunity to rest players that have been needing it.

    Well lack of rotation was obviously our downfall, but Pique has had a week off and in a time when we've been shaky to say the least, Masch has stood up tall. I get that we all want Bartra to do well and hope he gained some confidence from Depor, but we were very susceptible to conceding up until 2-0 where they just stopped playing.

    I don't think it'd be the worst decision to start him, we can probably role over Sporting like we did Depor, but taking our most consistent performer out when he's in good condition seems a little naive. Every game from now to the end of the season is a final.

    That said, this should be his only chance to start from now til the end of the season, barring injury or suspension.

    I just checked our form statistics. Before the drop last month, we had a 12 game winning series. Madrid is on a winning series right now with 8 wins, and there are 4 games to go. Atletico actually never managed to go above 4 games without dropping points this season. It's not likely that Barca, RM and AM won't drop any points until the end of the season. I am concerned especially against Espanyol. Hope we'll win the league!

    Espanyol at Camp Nou always gets destroyed. But it will be a very thugish game on their part, as much as the ref allows, that's for sure.

    Yap, any normal game we'd destroy them, but I don't know if we have enough power this time (mental and physical). They'll try anything to stop us.
