    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Not sure we'll see a lot of rotations here. 1-2 players rested maybe.

    Good opportunity for Roberto to play at least a half. Puig should come in as well.

    Messi could start on the bench.

    Just noticed Griezmann in the last 8 games has played 780 minutes. Has been subbed after 84, 85 and 101 minutes in the three games he hasn't played 90, or 120.

    Time for a rest maybe.

    Yeah, I'd let him on the bench.


    Neto; Mingueza, Araujo, Lenglet, Firpo; Busi, Pjanić, Puig; Braithwaite, Messi, Trincao

    Bring on Dembouz, Griezmann, FDJ and/or Pedri if needed in 2nd half. Also Bob on for Mingueza if Dest won't be ready.

    Dest is back, no Firpo and Ilaix.

    Think Firpo is done after that abysmal performance vs Rayo. Koeman would rather play Dest/Roberto there. I hope Alba doesn't start, he needs a rest.

    Neto - Bob, Mingueza, Lenglet, Dest - Busi, Pjanic, Puig - Trincao, Messi, Braithwaite.

    Him and De Jong are freaks in terms of stamina though.

    Cup is going to be a pest but further got the more focus will be.

    To point would risk a weaker team in league before PSG game.

    Quarters is too far to not make it a priority, I agree.

    True. We can probably sneak a win vs Alaves even with a worse team. Also we are behind Atletico a big margin, so not much hope. Priority Cup and CL(no humiliation please.)

    This is why I propose we play our best team in this game. Realistically, it's going to be really hard to win the league.

    Put our eggs in the Copa and CL, and just reach top 4 in the league.

    Granada didn't look good in the games against Barca, Atletico and Madrid, but still managed to be placed 8th in La Liga with just 3 points behind 6th placed Real Sociedad. Barca beat them 4-0 3 weeks ago (that game where Koeman took Messi and FDJ off after an hour). I'd start a strong line-up (2-3 rotations max) and hope to kill the game off early like 3 weeks ago.

    Granada are dangerous, they are better than that 4-0 shows. We need to be careful and avoid surprises. In the Copa we've played with fire in both games so far due to abysmal finishing. Would be nice to clearly win this one.
