Barcelona FC: Team News

The lineup, that Enrique decided to form against Alaves, was not that quite bad, but something was really missing, namely Messi, Luis Suarez, Andreas Iniesta, Jordy Alba who could help the team at leats take some of points playing on the home ground. We all need to understand that decision made by Enrique is actually justified with the fact that a half of the team were called out for international duties and they had to be rested lest they get exhausted before the European competitions. The Supporters might strike in response to the criticism poured over themselves at "Camp Nou".
