I’m emerging from my Saturday football manager stupor to host this here liveblog, y’all. I’m going back to that new blogging platform that everyone loves to hate, so don’t be alarmed – the actual liveblog won’t appear on this page until I start it (about 10 minutes before halftime, but I have to go get one of these, so I’ll probably be late).
On the sporting side, we have Pique and Puyol both back!
Starting XI: Valdes, Montoya, Pique, Puyol, Alba, Song, Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro, Messi, Villa
Bench: Pinto, Alves, Bartra, Mascherano, Dos Santos, Fabregas, Tello
