Cesc and Messi lead the Barça attack against Leverkusen

Pep Guardiola will manage to cover the absence of Alexis in attack while on the axis of the rear Pique and Mascherano will try to forget about Puyol.

Barça are playing tonight reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the Camp Nou against Bayer Leverkusen. And so at minimum. Alexis recent injuries and Puyol have left the first team in -14 box-players, forcing Guardiola to pull the branch and meet the six homegrown absences.

In defense, Piqué and Mascherano are the central couple in the absence of Puyol, where the centre-back Barcelona will have to provide centimeter-plus to establish itself as the great shield azulgrana set-pieces in pieces, in which the attempt to Bayer Leverkusen make the most possible.

The Abidal allow low Adriano have more minutes in Champions as winger, trying to emulate his compatriot Dani Alves who completed the defensive line of four.

In the center of midfield Busquets provide its basic physical waste to stop the German fast game that Pep Guardiola warned newsroom. In this sense, is not ruled out the inclusion in the starting line of a Seydou Keita who is experiencing a great form.

However, Pep could go for surround 'Busi' both Xavi as Iniesta to have absolute control of the ball, but both options would be compatible if Iniesta advance a position and pass to register as a wing.

Cesc and Messi are the untouchables in the plot more offensive. Arenys The band could fall or be repositioned as a false front center. In any case, his versatility will allow the grass to re-enlist to strengthen the midfield and ball control that both Guardiola wants to dominate tonight to stop the Bayer run and make spaces.

The other attacking trio square has no clear owner although pointing to Pedro the owner. In the event that Keita finally entered in the team, the logic is that to occupy third place the offensive Iniesta, while in normal, Peter played his position as other homegrown Cuenca or Tello. (via SPORT)
