Before the tocopillano Keita only in 2008-09 and Chygrynskiy debut in 2009-10 had formed in the starting and completing the Barca game. In the case of Mali Barça - Wisla played the previous Champions and in the ' Chygro ', a Getafe - Barcelona to league . Three other high ( Alves , Ibra and Mascherano ) started as headlines, but were replaced by the technician 76 minutes respectively, 70 and 45, while, Villa , Piqué , Adriano and Hleb also played role in his first official shock, but as substitutes used for 35 ', 19', 9 'and 4 minutes.

Excluding of Fabregas for having closed yesterday, the remaining 14 signings made ​​Guardiola went on trial 10, then, in action at first, but only 6 were starters and only three acted from beginning to end. Pep preferred to Keita on Touré in his official debut as coach Blaugrana, the commitment Chygrynskiy was perhaps the result of pressure by their cost, and Alexis debuted gallons because Guardiola believes in him because Afellay is injured and because Bojan and Jeffren are gone. The Chilean responded and were Pedro and Villa who divided the other place.

Indignation for the unpunished violence of Real Madrid


When last season Muñiz Fernández and Undiano Mallenco enabled Madrid to resort to violence against Barcelona , Mourinho knew he was winning impunity for the clásicos of the future. The college opened Asturias and Navarre the ban in those wild five days in April ( League at the Bernabeu and Cup final ) that allows everything: COSCORRON Marcelo with a closed fist, stomping off the ball of that side and Arbeloa , chilling entries Pepe ... Wood was a cast as varied and brutal, everything seems to come after little, at least for the arbiters of domestic competitions because Europe is not intimidated by the onslaught of the Portuguese verbal, as demonstrated by the two pulses the semifinal of the Champions . Conscious, Madrid tried to reduce its extreme hardness until Pepe out of control.

Indeed, the first clásico 'national' back, Mou recovered stick tactics. The kicks were more sporadic than in April, but some deserved more punishment than the yellow and, of course, did a blind eye Teixeira Vitienes in flight karateka Khedira the face of Abidal , in yet another 'round pot' of Pepe on Alves or both stomping of Marcelo without the ball to Messi and Alexis . And there were more than Alonso and Ramos , but he has spoken very little about them because Mou has normalize the violence of his team. It is dangerously institutionalized. (via MD)

Where and when to play Cesc at Barca?

These are the tactical options that would include Cesc in the drawing of Pep Guardiola.


When debut Cesc to Barca ? And what river? Once signed Fabregas are the two big questions that arise in their immediate future. The answer to the first question yesterday began giving the player himself.

At the moment, not be ruled out that Cesc tengaya his first minutes in el clásico, also to debut in Malaga on the opening day of league called off the strike if it does or Monday as the lure of Gamper , before the Napoli . It is the second question: where will act?

His versatility on the line in your favor more and better equipped workforce, lamedia. In the usual 4-3-3, as normal is that Cesc is inside in either flank. Of course in those parties that occur from time to time in the Nou Camp , 3-4-3 gives an option to take anywhere, whether midfielder, inside or even 'false 9', much closer to the area . With six races, there are parties to see it in all positions, including the bench. The first success and will play, given the extraordinary competition. (via MD)
