If Milan get an away goal, which is likely, then Barca need to score 4 goals against a team with 11 men behind the ball, can see Madrid beating them in the copa too.

Think Barcelona are missing Tito quite a bit.

Pretty obvious Roura got the tactics all wrong yesterday. Barcelona have been lacking since Villanova went for treatment. To counter the parking the bus its obvious you play two wingers to stretch the pitch. Tello and Pedro. Iniesta as a left winger just drifted in the middle the whole time never outside. When Villanova left the stretching the field tactic was not being employed anymore. They made the pitch the narrowest it could be to make it as compact as possible. At the Nou camp this is not going to happen. USE THE DAMN WIDTH!

Also players didn't press for the ball it was a lazy effort from lots of them just walking. Puyol cannot be played in games where most the team is going to be so far up the pitch. Mascherano is perfect for those kind of games and has the pace to recover, he also distributes the ball better.

OOOOHHHHH!!!

What a goal by Ibai for A.Bilbao!

You've got to see it. What a volley.

It's been an entertaining high tempo game so far with some good technical ability on show as usual.

Which is why La Liga is the best league in the world

Tello should be starting... Rura has been pretty poor with his tactics and selections.

Villa and Tello should start two players who just want to score. About as direct as you get.

Tello just turned the game on it's head. What a player.

This is how we should have played against Milan. Tello and Villa on. I know Villa wasn't available but you get my drift. Thing at Milan was we lacked so much Width. With Tello and Villa it really stretches teams horizontally.

True. I don't understand the logic behind playing Iniesta as a LW, he's always drifting inside as you don't have the opportunity to stretch teams. Barca's style of play requires wing play. I can see Barca turning it around against Milan if Tello and Villa start, your a completely different team when you have players who actually want to take on defenders.

I don't want to jinx it but i can as well. By playing Iniesta we basically put every attack through the middle. Wing play was non existent. Milan knew every attack was going to go through the middle. They didn't stretch Milan it was so easy. Also the lack of pressing the man was concerning, so many times they just walked back when usually they hound the opposition for the ball. Right now Tello is justifying that he should have come on not Sanchez.

One thing that really annoys me is the automatic yellow for a hand ball but so many times the ref doesn't give it. Sometimes they give it then other times they don't. Isn't it supposed to be for every handball...

To be honest I have always assumed it is to accommodate Cesc. I certainly prefer Iniesta being central. He is more natural in that position and it means they can have an extra pure attacker on the field, be it Villa, Tello or Alexis.

But what do I know, i'm just some punk posting on TSR
