    Lliga | Round 37: Levante - FC Barcelona 5-4

    League Round 37

    Sunday, May 13, 20:45 CET


    -
    ----------

    Barca beat Levante at home 3-0 this season with goals from Messi, Suarez and Paulinho.

    Guess we will see strong 11 again in Valverde's pursuit of unbeaten record.

    This is Barca, I expect a strong lineup for every game of the year except for Copa round of 32, Copa Catalunya, and CL group games after Barca has clinched 1st. Why would any true cule ever advocate picking lineups that are not strong?

    I would expect about as many rotations as there were for the Villarreal game. If Umtitti is fit, Pique should rest. It's also time for Busquets and Messi to rest. I doubt Messi will be willing to do that, but he should. He can come in as a sub.

    I bet that when new managers get hired, they interview with Messi. Messi makes it clear that if you want to be Barca manager, Messi must start at least 95% of the games, and almost never be subbed. It will be interesting to see if Messi continues to play so much as he gets into his 30s.

    Apparently, Levante are in a really good form. Only 1 loss and 2 draws in the last 10 games.

    They might actually take 3 points tomorrow if we aren't careful. Valverde should field our strongest line-up.

    Levante 1 - 1 Espanyol
    Getafe 0 - 1 Levante
    Levante 2 - 1 Eibar
    Girona 1 - 1 Levante
    Levante 2 - 1 Las Palmas
    Atletico Madrid 3 - 0 Levante
    Levante 1 - 0 Malaga
    Athletic Bilbao 1 - 3 Levante
    Levante 2 - 1 Sevilla
    Leganes 0 - 3 Levante

    Suarez is bound to start since he didn't the last match and that probably means we are back to 4-4-2 this Sunday.

    Not too many rotations, similar to Villarreal. Keep the core. It would be silly to lose the unbeaten record with this potential banana skin.

    Beware of a loss of concentration! Bayern Munich just played a sloppy game and lost 4:1 at home, with their best team!

    Bayern didn't have anything to play for. We do.

    Dembélé should start again. Give him some continuity after his performance last game.

    Exactly. I want to see that right side again. Semedo - Dembele.
