Many have a tendency to look at the number of players in the squad and number of players on each position and assume that Suarez/Neymar/Messi/Iniesta etc. always are the same. But more matches clearly makes players more tired and therefore perform less at peak-level. Our squad-depth is all right, but only if we remember to rest our best players, else it is of no use. And if we miss the Copa this year no harm is done, it could even serve as a way to give the youth some playing time (Marlon, Palencia etc.), which would be worth something in itself, for me at least.
