Barcelona derby tonight will be FC Barcelona's last La Liga match of this year. The team will be off to UAE to take part in FIFA World Club Championship. FC Barcelona currently have a five point lead over Real Madrid who has played a game less. This is the best oppurtunity to increase or maintain the lead. Barca meanwhile will be without the service of Lionel Messi, who has been injured in Kiev. Espanyol always is a very tough team for Barca to beat. Thei last visit to Camp NOu ended in a 2-1 victory for them. That match saw a howler from Valdes. Valdes has been repeating the same in the last two matches, but will do good if curb hgi tendencies tonight. The good news for Barca is De la Peña and Tamudo may not feature in tonight's encounter. These two players always use to trouble our side. Toure Yaya may finally get a starting call, but even if that happen he may ot feature in next season's Barca team. Meanwhile Guardiola would be tempted to rest some players so that they could feature in the world championships. But then local derby is not a match where you want to send a weakned side.
Valdes as usual will guard the goal. Let's hope he don't do anything silly in this match. The defense most probabaly will have Alves, Chygrynskiy, Marquez and Maxwell. Iniesta, Toure and Xavi may feature in the midfield. The attacking line mostly probably will have Pedro, Ibra and Henry. This encounter has never been a push-over as far as Barca is concerned. But the absence of Tamudo and Pena might already have swung the encounter in our favour. I expect Barca to notch up a comfortable victory by a scorline of 3-0.
