gazlfcforeverI think RDM might surprise everyone and use a 4-3-2-1 formation, this will make Barca change their shape in reaction. I'm thinking Iniesta might play more central with Xavi with Fabregas breaking forward to swap positions with Messi. Barca's shape will be initially 3-3-4 but I think the use of Torres with force them to use a more traditional back four. Mascherano will be exposed by Torres' pace.
I don't think Mata will play this leg in order to accommodate Torres, Busquets will drop into the back four and Chelsea will mark zonally in the midfield, there will be little space between the lines but Bara will insist on playing centrally.
I think Barca will win 2:1 on the night but lose overall there I said it. Lets hope RDM makes the surprise move to play Torres otherwise I think they'll lose the tie due to constant pressure.
gazlfcforeverI of course meant 4-3-1-2
david1993i expect Barcelona to bounce back and gather their form back for tonight match
iniesta and messi
JimmyGuitaristWell, they tried.
Barca know how to lose, there philosophy is as long as they tried there best to win and they did that.
I just had a feeling Chelsea might do it when Ramires scored. I thought Barca should've killed the momentum a bit when they went 2-0 up and waited till half-time.
david1993well done to chelsea i didnt think they could do it
but nothing is impossible
i if carragher said carroll goal against everton was woth 35million
