The time has come, and there are no surprises as Pep rolls out with:
Alves Pique Mascherano Puyol
Xavi Busquets Keita
Pedro Messi Villa
Bench: Pinto, Milito, Fontas, Roberto, Thiago, Afellay, Jeffren
Wet your appetite with Euler’s Tactical Preview, then come support the team with Kari and I!
This is going to be an emotionally charged game, from Pep’s press conference all the way down to the fan’s anxieties. Kari is going to be helping me out today, but I just want to make a couple things explicit:
1. The liveblog will start 10-15 minutes before game time so I can approve people well before kick off.
2. There are only 50 spots for contributors in the liveblog. We normally reach this limit during games so there is a chance it will be overcrowded today. Please be patient if you are not approved right away – but don’t be shy about reminding me you are waiting, and keep commenting as comments will be approved.
3. Please don’t swear. I can’t control myself during these games and swear under my breath all the time. That said if you type it in it has become a choice to post it. Consider this your warning.
