    No strikers... That can only mean...

    Paulinho CF!!!

    So, I would go with:

    ----------------------Cillesen-------------------
    Semedo---Mascherano---Vermaelen---Digne
    --------------------Busquets-------------------
    -----------Rakitić-------------Denis------------
    Roberto-----------Paulinho-------------Arnaiz

    Also no Iniesta. I´m worried. We have no offensive power whatsoever for this game. Deulofeu injured. Alcacer the same. Rafinha still not 100 perhaps. Dembele will play only 15-20 minutes.

    I would start Arnaiz as CF. Very dangerous game to left Messi, Suarez and Iniesta out specially with all the other attackers injured


    Cilessen

    Semedo - Pique-Vermaelen-Digne

    Busi

    Raki Paulinho

    Vidal-Arnaiz-Denis

    Good call not to include Messi and Suarez but without Messi it will be very difficult at Balaidos. I have no fear of us conceding 4 like last season though. Not under Valverde.
    Best Celta can hope for is 1-0 but I see us scoring too.

    I think the key without Messi, Suarez and Iniesta will be Busquets, who needs to control the game completely. If we get an A-game from Busi, I wouldn't be worried.


    Maybe we can also play Roberto and Arnaiz as wide forwards in a 4-4-2, with Paulinho drifting into a box when we attack.

    Don't lose by any more than 2 and we should be okay.

    Weird to have squad like this, when Alena or Arnaiz wouldn't feature even in dead rubber matches against scrubs, but are featured in one of the hardest away venues in recent years and that without Messi and Suarez. What kind of sorcery is this.
    edit: oh, it's copa. Never mind.

    Seems like Valverde, like most of the forum, doesn't care much about CDR.

    Is Iniesta injured? Seems risky to not have Messi, Suarez, and Iniesta.

    I think I would start this lineup.

    ------------Cillessen
    Semedo-Piqué-Vermaelen-Digne
    ----Roberto-Busquets-Aleñá----
    Dembelé---Paulinho----Denis

    Roberto starting on midfield will probably never happen at this point so I will be satisfied with Rakitic there.

    Just realized Iniesta is out too. Don't know what'd the deal with him. This could be even harder then. I guess Rakitic will be our creative boss.

    Also, chance of rain tomorrow in Vigo. has a good chance to get an active result.

    Dembele probably won't play more than 20-25 minutes.

    And that's without Paco, Suarez and Messi there. He is really done.

    That Murcia match was the end of him. I don't blame Valverde either.

    I'd play Vidal on RW, Paulinho as false 9, and Arnaiz on the left, with Alena, Busi, Raki midfield.

    Why is Deulofeu not included? Is he injured??? With Messi, Suarez and Paco out he should have been in the squad! Don’t understand this at all.

    Only logical explanation is that he will be sold together with Rafinha so we don’t want to risk an injury.
