    Yeah, I wouldn't do that. Would like to see Messi rested though.

    CL away and some want to rotate like it is some random Copa game. There will not be any gambling in CL until the 1st place is secured and rightfully so.

    I agree. Although, sadly, playing Alena instead of Rakitic is not gambling at all.

    Letting Ale play instead of the Maestro Rakitic is a gamble ? Interesting...

    The anti-La Masia rhetoric is always going to be strong but in this case you're really just wrong. Playing Alena in this game would probably improve our midfield, not make us worse. The kid is just spinning his wheels at Barca B for the sake of development anyways, he could easily be a first team player full stop by now.
    We will miss out on those deadly backpasses from Rakitic.

    Basically the only young player suggested that we could start is Alena yet everyone opposed is using words like "Risk" and "Gamble" and are seriously trying to play up how terrifying Olympiacos at home will be as a reason for why we shouldn't use young players. The same people who will probably be in Rakitic's thread trash talking him for passing back for the entirety of the game.

    No one is saying that at all as far as I can see.

    All it takes is the slightest bit of deductive reasoning, like... come on.

    At first I thought those were nicknames you came up with for Rakitic and Gomes.

    Messi should be rested..He has a discomfort in his hamstring. We will be doomed if he picks up a hamstring injury.

    Play Alena in false 9 to rest Messi if he indeed feels something.

    ------------Stegen------------
    Semedo-Masche/Verm-Umtiti-Alba
    -----------Busquets-----------
    -------Paulinho-Roberto-------
    -------------Alena------------
    ---Denis---------------Luis---
