    Though Denis isn't great in midfield, I think we will need to play him in Iniesta's role. He's the only one with some creativity in that midfield squad. My midfield would be Busi, Denis and Roberto/Paulinho (but it's most likely going to be Rakitic Gomes Busquets,cause.... Valverde)

    most immobile midfield in all of European football history?

    Theres no chance Sergi and Semedo will both start since we dont have a back up RB.

    If one of them gets injured, the other one can be reassigned to the RB position. And we bring in a midfielder from the bench. Semedo should start at RB, Roberto should start in CM. Rakitic on the bench.

    He has called 20 players, 2 of them are Barca B players. So there is actually chance that he doesn't even make it to match squad.
    He is probably gibing him some experience with 1st team training etc
    PS: If Mascherano didn't travel then 19 players in squad and one will be removed

    If Oriol doesn't make the bench the decision to add him to the match squad makes even less sense. Aren't the kids playing Sevilla B this weekend? He could be playing there.

    Good job by Valverde running Iniesta into the ground so early on just as I predicted.

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD VALVERDE TRY THIS LINEUP FOR THIS MATCH:

    Stegen

    Semedo-Pique-Umtiti-Alba

    Roberto-Busquets-Paulinho

    Deulofeu-Messi-Denis

    I think Valverde will go with 4-4-2, with Denis-Busi-Rakitic-Roberto in midfield

    Busquets-Roberto-Rakitic midfield is the obvious choice. Who knows, I mean I love Iniesta but maybe having Roberto at San Mames vs. battling hosts would prove better anyway.

    I almost see Mascherano out as a same handicap for us as the Argentine defender has been playing immensely recently.

    It’s pissing me off but I’m fully expecting 4-4-2 again.

    Valverde has such a one dimensional mindset, it sometimes make me wonder if he eats the same thing every meal.
