A huge match today against Valencia before the international break. Vilanova said in his press conference the team needs to concede less – and it would be nice to keep the first clean sheet in official games during the Vilanova era. Other than that, it’d be great to see Villa score a goal against his old team (or really see anyone other than Messi score a goal).
Starting XI: Valdés, Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Adriano, Song, Xavi, Fabregas, Pedro, Messi, Sanchez
Bench: Pinto, Bartra, Alba, Busquets, Iniesta, Tello, Villa
Montoya, Fontas, Dos Santos, and Thiago will watch from the stands
Match starts at 21:30 Barcelona time / 3:30 PM EST and the liveblog will start 5-10 minutes before that
