    Like I already said, not so important tournament. I dont care if its Celta or 1-1, I personally wouldnt risk Messi. And you might never know, someone puts a bad challenge today and thats it.
    Fair enough point, I just rate the Copa very highly. Doing a domestic double is an incredible achievment. Real have done it 4 times, Atheltic 5 times and we have done it 7 times ( 2 trebles )

    The way I see it we can rest players at home against Alaves, Getafe, Girona and Leganes. Our squad is deep enough now to go for all 3. Perhaps in the Copa we can rest players for 1 leg and then play the full strength in the opposite leg.

    The only thing I don't like about this tie is Espanyol players will try to injure our players just like every other derbies we had before.

    With coutinho in the league we'll be able to rest some players, Iniesta doesn't have to play much, Coutinho for Messi etc.
    Also, Rakitić needs rest, he's an animal but still, played more or less every minute

    Pressing them high and preventing their build-up was key and our boys did it masterfully. Rakitic and Busquets in particular.
    that 2-2 was an epic war, even if we got robbed a dissallowed goal. such a quality match. the fact that we dominated this one shows growth by not only the squad, but valverde.

    Man, the high pressing we did with all these slow players was amazing. That and Messi were keys.
