After a draw against Milan in their first group stage game, Guardiola has impressed upon his players the importance of this match, saying “if we don’t win here we will have to wait till the last day to guarantee qualification”. With this in mind he has rolled out with:
Starting XI* Valdes Alves Puyol Mascherano Abidal Xavi Keita Thiago Pedro Messi Villa
Bench Pinto Pique Fontas Maxwell Busquets Fabregas Adriano
* – I have no idea if they are in proper-formation order
