    I would personally still rest players with an 8 point lead but I know EV won't.
    Well we need at least draw vs Atletico, otherwise they gain the tiebreaker as well, so we can't mess around with this game.

    Refs in Spain are barely adding more than 4 minutes. 3 minutes is the standard amount usually. For the same second time, I believe, any ref in England would have added 5-6 minutes.

    It's actually ridiculous that he didn't add more! Should've had at least 3 more minutes, which could've easily been enough time to score more against that on-the-ropes Villarreal side with 10 men.

    They add 3 minutes when we are trailing and a shitload when we are slightly in front and being pressured.
    Its the opposite when Madrid plays and they are close to us in the title race.

    Refs show bias in added minutes, yellows and 50/50 fouls.
    You dont have to be a conspiracy theorist or have confirmation bias. Just nearly two decades of watching la liga. It will all come out one day.

    For example the last 10 liga campaigns should be all barca. There is the obvious 2014 offside messi goal but also Reals victories in 2012 and 2017 were influenced by ref bias. Its important since younger fans will only look up wikipedia and dont know.

    It has value since it shows la liga wins are way more difficult than firstly assumed, like starting each season -6 points while your main rival is 6 points up. Its not all about cl and makes every win very impressive imo.
    At this rate we will add another one again this year. Just knowig despite all the money, media, ref bias they cant stop it is beautifull.

    This is a team that is difficult to beat.

    The high line on defense looked suicidal yesterday. Umtitti and Lenglet were humiliated, but where was the 6 second rule, why did Vil have so much time and space to make those perfect outlet passes? Barca must defend at every position, everyone who played deserves blame. Where were the fullbacks and midfielders on those hundreds of Vil counters? Rak stops counters all the time, before they get started. The best at defense in the offensive half was Alves. Pedro and Sanchez also, Messi slows them down too. Vidal was not good on defense this game, Alba and Roberto were completely absent on D. Poor Lenglet had to cover LB, which is not in his skill set. Pique is by far the best FB among the Barca CBs, though the quick ones make him look bad, too.

    Malcom started great, but he faded quite badly, especially mentally. No, he should rarely start, and when he does, he should always be subbed.

    Must rotate vs. AM. I would sit Lenglet, Alba, Busquets, Suarez. Even if these rotations lose the game.

    At home though. Sevilla at home is an easy game. Even Huesca beat them.
