    Iniesta and Busquets trained with the squad normally.
    Puyol trained with the squad a little bit.
    Adriano, Pique, Abidal and Muniesa are injured, still.
    My Lineup:
    Valdes
    Alves - Mascherano - Song - Alba
    Busquets
    Xavi - Thiago
    Pedro - Messi - Villa

    Continuing great work with match threads (but the "our opponent" banner lacks the other "p").
    100% agreed with your line-up.

    Should maybe give Bartra a start here assuming he's healthy.

    I agree, it's a big game but Bartra has been very solid from the few games he played. I just hope Song is not played on defense tomorrow he looks just clueless in there.

    How? He's looked fantastic there so far apart from maybe the first 15 minutes last week and a couple of bad moments against Spartak. I don't think he is our solution to the centerback problem either, but he hasn't been bad at all so far playing there. And for a player who signed for nearly 20ME, we should play him when a time where Puyi and Pique are both out, like they are now.

    My lineup for the game;

    Valdes​
    Alves Song Mascherano Alba​
    Xavi Busquets Fabregas​
    Pedro Messi Alexis​
    Give Iniesta and Villa some game time in order to help recuperate from their injuries and build their fitness.​

    Since none of the three are CB's anyway I kind of wish Masch was DM and Serge B/Song were the CB's.

    Well, given that Tito stated that he experienced his personal "worst 15 minutes" as a coach at the Pizjuan, I highly doubt he'll bleed in a youngster like that in such a pressure-filled environment. If he hasn't done it yet, I doubt he does it now.

    One has to assume that if Pique can't play against LPB, the one who plays with Masch today will play. Trust more Song or Bartra? IMO Song.

    I'm thinking it's going to be Song, no way that Bartra plays if he didn't play last weekend in a supposedly "smaller" match than the one this week. Although we do have Benfica midweek, which throws that out the window. Three huge matches in a week, how will the squad be rotated?

    One thing is for sure, Crybaby Fabregas will get playing time. I never like us going to the Sanchez Pizjuan, it always seems like anything can happen and their fans are pretty passionate.

    Goals scored by Messi in his last 10 away games for Barcelona in the Liga: 1 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 0 - 2 - 2 #fcblive [via @messistats]

    This blows me away, in general and knowing how poor we were last season in away fixtures.

    Should be a good match. Sevilla is always tricky at home so a draw would suffice but I think the team will win it 2-1 or 3-2 in the end. As for the defence, I'd pair Masch/Song since I want them to get some chemistry together before we play LPB(assuming they are the CBs for that match).

    With all the respect to Sevilla, I think a draw is "two points dropped". It's like that with every fixture with us (and LPB) except for the Clasico. Agreed with Masch/Song 100%.

    Why is it two points dropped? It's one of the hardest away games we'll have all season and it's been that way for quite a few years now.

    Besides, if we get a draw here, it's a 'point gained' when you consider that LPB lost all three there already. ;)

    I know it's hard, obviously. Sevilla is quality, esp. at home but away as well. Sevilla is Sevilla - never ever easy. But it's "points dropped" in a way that lately we and LPB have been winning so often that wins have become the "normal" results and draws and losses are moments for the other team to widen/shorten the gap.

    Repeat: with all the respect to Sevilla. Obv a very tough fixture (and I'm not saying we are that big favourites to win tonight). Just that when we play, LPB fans can see the result either as a "meh, they won - gotta keep winning because some day they won't win" or "yes they dropped points, let's shorten the gap".

    In a race against LPB, us drawing (and them winning) means this round would go 3-1 to them. That's how it's points dropped.

    Yes, but that just means you have a different view of points dropped than I do. They lost this fixture while if we get a point at minimum, then it's a point gained for me and not two dropped. The only way I'd call it points dropped is if we lose/draw a fixture that they won or if we're not winning games at a critical stage of the season, like in March and April.

    Obviously I want the win today, but a draw would be acceptable. We'll have at least a 6 point lead on them heading into a Clasico on home turf next week, the pressure would all be on them.

    Yep - two different ways: by round or by fixture. I go by rounds. A draw would be acceptable to me too, in a way that one can't be that hubristic that own team should somehow win always, but of course there is some sort of disappointment in every non-win Liga match. 6 points lead is nice, but at this point of season imo it's not that crucial to count gaps, just important to get as many points as possible. So, a win tonight is what we should be happy with. Not a draw.

    Ok line-up. Would've hoped Villa to start, but obv we have Benfice and LPB soon so gotta rotate. Esp the half-fit players.

    Navas is the big danger for them, I think.

    Sevilla really have great fans and a superb club anthem, I must say. Too bad their players down the years aren't the same.
