With Real Madrid only just two points behind, this season is going into quite a nail biting finish. Eventhough Real Madrid is hosting Sevilla tomorrow, their current home form will make it difficult for Sevilla to get a favourable result. Meanwhile we will be travelling to Almeria, and our last trip on road saw a miserable performance against Stuttgart. We may hope Sevilla to give us some breathing space, especially Valencia visiting Camp Nou next week. Pep Guardiola has announced a 18 man squad which will be travelling to Almeria - Valdés, Pinto, Alves, Puyol, Chygrynskiy, Márquez, Milito, Maxwell, Touré, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Jeffren, Bojan, Pedro, Messi, Henry, Ibrahimovic. Pique is suspended for this match and Keita and Abidal are out recovering from their injuries.

Xavi and Iniesta Key For Barca Midfield

Barca won against Almeria when they visited Camp Nou earlier this season. That match saw Xavi being man marked all the time. The recent interview by Almeria players reveals that they will go for the same tactic. So it become essential for Guardiola to have Iniesta partner Xavi in the midfield. The defense most probably would see Alves, Milito, Puyol and Maxwell infront of Valdes. It is to be seen how Milito and Puyol is going to perform together. I always have a feeling they don't compliment each other well (they are both of the same style). The midfield should see Toure partnering the midfield maestroes Xavi and Iniesta. Henry, Ibrahmovic and Messi should form the attacking trio. This could be a difficult challenge for Barca. But Barca has to raise their bar a few nothc from now on. I predict another 2-0 victory for Barca.
