    Valdes

    Dani Pique Mascherano Puyol

    Busquets
    Xavi Iniesta

    Alexis Messi Cesc


    Worked perfectly against RM, and i think Cesc would perform better if he plays in the spot that Iniesta has ocuppied.
    Against Valencia he nailed it there.

    Don Andres is better in the middle. Hopefully we'll see him there next CL game.

    It would be really interesting to see some of the well known posters choose between the 1st & 2nd options... You know who I'm talking about

    Iniesta in the midfield for 100%, Keita riding the bench and one of Pedro/Cuenca/Cesc/Tello to play in the attack with Messi and Sanchez. But Iniesta in midfield is absoulte priority, if Pep wastes him again as a winger, we will struggle to break the Milan parked bus.

    = automatic success. Anything else is secondary, you can stick Torres and Carroll on the wings for all I care. Or even Cesc. If Pep plays the same lineup with Cesc in midfield instead of Keita and Iniesta on the wing again, we're going to find it as hard as last night though. We need penetrating dribbles from the middle to open them up. Something like this:



    He can't do it standing on the freaking sideline.

    12 votes...100% on the don.

    It's actually not that difficult:

    --------Valdés----------
    Dani--Badger-Piqué-Puyi
    ---------Busi------------
    -----Xavi-----Iniesta-----
    --Sex----Messi----Pedrito


    Although I think Cesc will start.

    It is an utmost priority.
    But, for those who are saying start cesc on the wing:
    absolutely no.. cesc cannot play there, and it will result again in iniesta getting out wide..
    cesc will play only in two cases: 1) as a sub for xavi or iniesta (preferably if it is decided), 2) as another md in a 3-4-3..
    nothing else..

    Every single time cesc has played with iniesta and xavi in a 4-3-3 he sucks big time..
    conversation over..

    This was an easy choice really.

    The Don is wasted on the wing, put him back in the middle and watch us win.

    Cesc will most likely play this game, although hopefully as a sub.

    I don't know if it's entirely true..I'm sure Milan will park the bus from the beginning again and try to catch us on the break. So Barca's ability of moving into space will be just as important as the posession(Pep should take some notes from Arsenal-Milan, although it appears that Milan's motivation against us it reaches a whole new level).

    Pedro should play, he would be invaluable when pressing their midfield.

    I don't know if anyone of you agree with me on this.. I really want cuenca to start. Iniesta back to midfield. Sex to come on as a sub. Pedro and cuenca will stretch the play for Iniesta and messi to work their magic from the middle. Also, pedro will always be making runs on the left to receive that messi through ball and will have a real chance on goal.

    Pedro- Messi- Cuenca

    Iniesta back in midfield is a must. Too bad Pedro is not on form yet, but I can't see Cuenca or Tello starting. Alexis-Messi-Pedro would be the best option, Cesc upfront wouldn't do any good.
