    Lliga | Round 29: FC Barcelona - Athletic Bilbao 2-0

    La Liga Round 29

    Sunday, March 18, 16:15 CET

    -------------------------

    Bilbao shouldn't be a problem for Barca this weekend even without Busi and with Iniesta and Roberto not fully fit.

    Interesting stat: Barca conceded only 3 goals in last 10 matches.

    No Busi or Iniesta, but Coutinho is back and Rakitić has been a great DM lately.

    It will be interesting who replaces Suarez, but I think it'll be a 4-4-2 with Messi and Dembele up front.

    This game shouldn't be a problem.

    Edit: Iniesta was in the recovery session today, so it seems that he is healthy, although not 100%.

    Team is quite bruised and battered atm, time for wholesale rotations:

    Ter Stegen

    Vidal-Verm-Umtiti-Digne

    Paulinho-Rakitic-Gomes-Coutinho

    Messi-Dembele

    At least one of Dembele, Messi or Coutinho will show up and win us the match. Digne, Verm and Umtiti are rocks at the back and playing Vidal at RB for one match isn't the end of the world.

    Mina can be subbed on for Umtiti when the match is decided.

    Playing Vidal at RB IS the end of the world, no matter how you put it.

    I dont know but I feel Messi could have had some rest at half time too. He's given his all.

    Should rest Messi this game. Can sub him in later in the game if need be.

    Messi skipped Malaga. No way he misses 2 league matches in a row

    No Suarez and no Busqets I don't think resting Messi as well is a good idea. He should start along with dembele coutinho and Rakitic.

    Would like to see a full attacking formation for a change with Messi and Paco upfront.
