    Stegen

    Semedo-Mina-Umtiti-Digne

    Denis-Paulinho-Rakitic-Alba

    Paco-Coutinho

    We need the rest more than we need the points and the lineup should reflect that.

    Sorry, no way we start Semedo and Mina. They play next to each other and we can't have a player low on confidence and one yet to make a debut together.

    Rak Paulinho Iniesta

    Expecting Somedo to start in the defense.
    Midfield should be rested, with Coutinho and Paulinho as the starters.
    Attack Both Messi and Suarez should be rested.

    Somedo--Pique--Umtiti--Digne

    Vidal--Roberto--Paulinho--Coutinho

    --------Paco--------Denis-------

    Kinda comical line-up but lets see what these guys can do without the starting 11.
    Fully expecting our main starters to strt.

    Rest as much as possible.
    Too bad Espanyol away is rarely "rest".

    Ev said he'll play the best possible line up.

    he doesn't relate, so don't expect him to rest our key players (iniesta is an exception tho).

    I can see him resting our key players right before chelsea (Eibar away). there'll be about 11 days between it and getafe Home. it's enough for the players to be completely fit

    Good plan. I like it!

    Eibar trashed Sevilla today 5-1. Insane.

    Full strength team as far as I’m concerned. Madrid dropped 2 more points and Atleti are up against Valencia so someone will drop points or both in case of a draw. A Valencia win would be fantastic in the grand scheme of things though.

    Rotations can begin in earnest after the Copa second leg but a win in this game basically seals La Liga if Atleti don’t win.

    La Liga has been sealed since Christmas. Full strength is not needed and would just tire the players out even more.

    No need to rest anyone today, except Iniesta. Getafe at home and Eibar away will be the games Valverde will probably rest our most important players. That`s more than enough time to recuperate and be at 100 % for Chelsea.

    Exactly. I'd go with:

    --------------Ter Stegen---------------
    Semedo-----Pique-----Umtiti-----Alba
    Roberto--Rakitić--Busquets--Coutinho
    --------Messi------------Suarez--------

    And perfectly, Suarez intentionally gets a yellow today, so he gets his cards cleared against Getafe. So, we rest Suarez against Getafe and Messi against Eibar. We also rest one pair of Rakitić and Alba / Roberto and Busquets in each of those games. That would be perfect.

    Mina and Dembele should get some minutes against Getafe.

    I don’t consider an 11 point lead sealed when there are 5 dangerous fixtures still coming. Madrid, Valencia, Atleti, Villareal and Sevilla.

    Winning today and one of Atleti and Valencia, preferably Atleti, dropping points eases my concerns somewhat.
