    It'll be hybrid 4-4-2. Busi, Iniesta, Rakitic, Paulinho midfield.

    Vermaelen and Pique are strong in the air so not too concerned about their crosses.

    We must not lose this game. A draw would do.

    I would field this 11:

    --------------Ter Stegen--------------
    Semedo---Pique---Vermaelen---Alba
    ---------------Busquets---------------
    -------Paulinho------Iniesta----------
    Roberto------Messi------Suarez------

    Why? Roberto looked amazing in the last few games attacking-wise, so I would use him as a RW. Defenisvely, he and Semedo could shut RM's left side down and forcing Marcelo to stay back. I would go with Paulinho instead of Rakitić, because he can bully Modrić and Kroos off the ball. And I would still play Verminator, because Mascherano hasn't played a minute since he has been injured.


    But the Valverde special will probably be:

    --------------Ter Stegen--------------
    Roberto---Pique---Vermaelen---Alba
    ---------------Busquets---------------
    ---------Rakitić------Iniesta----------
    ---------------Paulinho---------------
    --------Messi------------Suarez------

    I hope that Valverde realises that Paulinho's worst games this season have been, when he has played as a CAM in 4-4-2 diamond. Whenever he has played as a CM, he looked more involved in the game. He also must remember the supercopa, the 1st leg, where the Marcelo vs. Robeto matchup didn't work particulary well for us.

    It'll probably be a draw based on how Valverde is playing.

    Draw would be a great result but think Real will win.

    To be five points clear of them having been away to Real, Ateltico, Valencia, Villareal and Bilbao still be decent for second half of season.

    Right, also with Roberto-Rakitic in a 442 setup is dangerous, it might end up in a total disaster if we are not careful. I would still hope it'll be a draw.

    I don't care what anyone says, the thought of Paulinho starting a Clasico makes me sick.

    PaulGOATinho > Rakitić

    Start the Chinese Dragon in RCM and he shall mince Toni Kroos into tiny, tiny bits.

    10 seasons ago we hit the bottom. It was spring of 2007, last season for Rijkaard. Lost 4-1 at Bernabeu and even had to give them guard of honour. Remember how some players (Eto'o) were against it but Laporta intervened.

    But it's always darkest before the dawn. Only few months later we began the great journey with Guardiola.
