Any other season, I would have preferred the prospect of facing Valencia at home over a clash at the Mestella. But with our home form this season, I am not so sure about this one. To make matters worse this one comes straight after an international break. Our performances after a break has always been a head-ache. There is no doubt where the footbaling world will be concentrated this weekend. But I would be keeping a close eye to see how the newly laid pitch behaves. The Camp Nou pitch has been a big dissappointment since the start of this season and the Mallorca clash saw the worst of it. Luckily the staffs used the international break to lay the new pitch and I hope it holds firm. As for Valencia is concerned, they have their own issues to prove. This is their first test to see whetehr they can realistically carry on the hope of winning the titles. This will be a match that could make them from Pretenders to contenders. Valencia's last visit to Cam Nou ended with Messi bagging a hat-trick and Barca fans will be hoping once again he repeat the performance. David Villa is declared fit to face Valencia but Guardiola still has to worry about the fitness of Xavi Hernandez.

FC Barcelona vs Valencia clashes is never short of action

Eventhough its pretty early in the season, courtesy of our poor home persons we are in a position where we have to win this encounter. A failure tomorrow will see once again our opponents moving ahead of us and that will increase the pressure on the team. On the positive we have done really well when posed with greater challenges this season. So we can expect a tough but hard performance from the team. Considering the importance of this match, I am pretty sure Guardiola will put both Xavi and Iniesta in the midfield along with Busquets as defensive midfielder. The defense is expected to have that familiar look of Puyol, Pique, Alves and Abidal. Pedro has been back from injury but I don't expect him to start. That should give Bojan one more chance along with Messi and Villa. This is going to be a tough match but we do have the character to win this one. Above all we have Messi, Xavi and Iniesta. I will go for a tight 2-1 victory for us.
