Something something Chelsea connection... - Jasper Juinen
Hey, maybe this one will actually be a classic.
Barcelona. Real Madrid. Ho-hum. Twice this week! Double ho-hum. Copa del Rey (second leg, tied 1-1 from the first). Triple ho-hum. But apparently all y'all like to talk about this (and a veritable plethora of various other things, I'm sure), so here's an open thread to contain all that chatter. Have at it!
Barcelona starting lineup (4-3-3): José Manuel Pinto; Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué, Carles Puyol, Dani Alves; Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fabregas; Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Pedro Rodriguez.
Real Madrid starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Diego Lopez; Fabio Coentrão, Pepe, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos; Sami Khedira, Xabi Alonso; Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Özil, Angel Di Maria; Gonzalo Higuaín.
I've heard that Messi fellow is alright. BUT CAN HE DO IT ON A COLD TUESDAY NIGHT IN ... erm ... BARCELONA?!!
