With Real Madrid cutting Barca's lead to nine with a not so convincing victory against Racing, Barca would be hoping to produce a repeat of Barca's performance at Gijon earlier this season. FC Barcelona destroyed Gijon when they met last time with a scoreline of 6-1.When they met last time in the league, Gijon were at the bottom of the league. But now they have moved to 12th place and they need more of that confidence to take some thing away from home. For FC Barcelona this is the perfect game to peak agains; their recent victories were all good but was a far cry from the excellent run of form prior to the winter break. Anyway the great puzzle of "How we will form the defense>" looks to have been solved for now. Alves got his yellow card revoked; Puyol has been given the all clear from the medics and Keita is back fit again. The players seemed to be a bit tired in recent games but with no midweek games for sometime, they would get some deserved rest.

As usual for the home games, Guardiola has not yet announced the squad.Valdes will return back to the goal. Alves and Abidal will be the full backs. Puyol most probably will partner Caceres in the centr of defense. Iniesta and Xavi should form the midfield along with Toure. Messi, Eto and Hleb should form the front trio. FC Barcelona are expected to roll away with this match; but it may be tougher that what we came to expect. Messi's return will surelyy be a boost for the team along with Xavi who was out for last two match due to gastroentitis. My prediction will be for Barca to win the game 4-1. I don't expect Barca to keep a clean sheet as the defense at the centre will look shaky. FC Barcelona is standing on 99 goal in all competition this season; any guess who will get the 100th? Also let me congratulate Iniesta who played his 250th match for Barcelona in the 2-0 victory against Mallorca
