    After what happened last season, I think the team won't be complacent no matter the opposition.

    He is not a starter in this moment.

    Anyone who is NOT a starter should play those matches.
    If current starters are Busi, Raki, Vidal, Dembele, Suarez, Messi, then:
    Arthur, Denis, Rafinha, Munir, Malcom, Coutinho, Vermaelen, one out of Roberto/Semedo are free to play.

    I agree, there should be a team A and team B for La Liga and Copa respectively.

    This would be my team for the Copa until the Final
    Cillessen---Bob, Chumi, Vermaelen, Miranda---Rakitic, Alena, Arthur---Malcom, Munir, Coutinho

    Team A would be
    MATS---Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba---Busi, Rakitic, Vidal---Messi, Suarez, Dembele

    Rakitic is always going to play so I have no hopes that he will be rested.
    Denis looks likely to leave in January and it sucks that Rafinha is out for this time period.
    A good thing of this rotation is that everybody gets to play and will be match fit when they are needed.

    Lyon snatched 4 pts from City. I would not underestimate them after last year "Roma incident".
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Arthur should be in the A team.

    Yeah Arthur deserves to be in team A, but since EV will always play Rakitic or Busi in the big games, it's either Arthur or Vidal. Who starts between Arthur or Vidal would depend on who we are facing.

    Arthur is our best midfielder atm. Says a lot.

    I don't count Messi and Cou there cause EV does not play Cou there

    Lyon it is. On paper one of the easier teams to face but it should be some interesting games without a doubt. Lyon is a respectable club with a great youth academy and quite a few promising talents at their disposal. It is also a club that we have good ties with and past games have almost always been entertaining.

    However anything else than winning the tie would be a complete and utter disaster. No excuses.
    Bartomeu Dimissió!

    If Lyon could stop Man City, they are not weak.
    Anyway I think that Barca would not let anybody repeat that what Roma did last year.
    When you look at away match againts Tottenham, you can see that Barca does not understimate anybody and if we need to win, we win.

    Lyon will get trashed. Barca looks bored in LaLiga this year, full throttle in UCL though.

    Lyon - Barca 1-2
    Barca - Lyon 3-0

    The last game in UCL against Tottenham hardly showed a team with a strategy or a plan. In fact, we got outplayed and it was more fun watching Tottenham than Barca. If it hadn't been for Dembele's individual performance, we may very well have lost the game.
