FC Barcelona, courtesy of a brilliant home win have already kept a foot in the semi-finals of this years UEFA Champions League. But we should still remember that we still have to negotiate Bayern at Germany to make it happen. Guardiola was able to give many of his stalwarts some rest in the 2-0 victory over Recreativo, especially the likes of Xavi and Eto. Guardiola has already announced the squad which will travel to Bayern for the second leg tie - Valdés, Pinto, Henry, Xavi, Piqué, Iniesta, Puyol, Cáceres, Sylvinho, Bojan, Eto’o , Messi, Hleb, Alves, Abidal, Keita, Gudjohnsen, Touré and Busquets. This would be the first time that Abidal is included in a away squad after his injury. The players to miss out are Pedro, Jorquera, Sanchez while Marquez is suspended for this leg.

The only change that is likely would happen at the back four. Puyol would be moving to centre and most probably Sylvinho will start as Left-Back. Alves and Pique should complete the defensive jig-saw. The midfield will remain unchanged with Xavi, Iniesta and Toure, so would the attacking line with Messi, Eto and Henry. Once again the midfield domination would be the key to the success at Bayern. This is going to be very tough for Bayern but it is not impossible. We had spectacularly catapulated at getafe couple of seasons back. Bayern defeated Eintracht 4-0 in the weekend, that shows they are capable of scoring. But it is difficult to see Barca throwing it all away at Bayern, I expect a more contained game with Barca winning 2-0.
