    Think we will go with strongest 11, and in this case I think it will be right decision
    Should rest Messi. Suarez can play one half. Dembele should play the entire game. Should rest Rakitic too given how much he's played. It's going to be an intense game vs Lyon so no point wasting energy here. Some of the subs should be more than enough to secure a win here.

    Most teams tend to rest their starters before such games and it works for them so I disagree completely with you there. Going with the strongest XI thus wasting energy when we have an away game against a team notorious for their high pressing and energetic midfield as shown vs Man City is a bad idea IMO.

    I would have agreed with what you said if we played this mid week. Players need rest but also need rhythm and you can't do one on the expense of the other.
    If you want to play well against Lyon, resting those players isn't good thing for it at all.

    Stegen
    Semedo-Pique-Lenglet-Alba
    -Busquets-
    -Alena-Rakitic-
    Messi-Suarez-Dembele

    Gala11 plus getting Dembele back to fitness and having Alena start for me. If Valverde thinks Todibo is ready, then I am all for giving him a start.

    I would want Malcom to start but IMO Valverde F'd up against Valencia by not starting Malcom. We had the chance to continue his form. Now instead we have the Valladolid game where we need to get Dembele ready for the next block of tough games. Coutinho form is also a Q and if Malcom doesn't play he loses confidence. Bad management.

    Hopefully there are some rotations. Would really like Malcom and Dembele to start together paired with Messi or Suarez. No chance that happens though.

    I'm expecting at Dembele and Alena to start at least. Hopefully Malcom as well.

    Well thats really unfair. Hopefully Valverde will rotate tomorrow, Dembele will play and Messi should be rested or let him play only one half.
