Today we face the 4-time defending Copa champions Barcelona without Messi & Dembele, 2 members of this supposed “new trident.” Advantage? Well, we also had a supposed advantage vs Real Madrid this weekend. I ain’t expecting much from this, I just want to see us compete. Here is the starting XI:
I like this from Machín. Amadou alongside Banega. It can either be the usual 3-5-2 or the seldom used 3-4-2-1. We shall see.
