    As in all-La Masia? One step more realistical is Cesc in place of, say, Tello.

    Think there will ever be a Catalunya vs. (rest of) España match? And who would win?

    I doubt it. Not in the near future with the current generation of players, anyway.
    Take away the number of dates available for friendlies (FIFA dates are often used for EURO or World Cup qualifying) and the number of open dates for friendlies are few. And with Spain currently taking full advantage of their status as World and European champions by playing friendlies to. basically, the highest bidder there's really nothing to be gained by playing a friendly against Cataluyna, Euskadi or any of the other autonomous regions.
    Also, the amount of 'morbo' that would be displayed if such an encounter were to occur is probably reason enough not to schedule the matchup. Heck, not counting the '92 Barcelona Olympic Games you have to go back to 1987 to find the last time Spain played an international at Camp Nou. (Although the last time Spain played at the Montjuic Olympico was 2004.)

    Fwiw...
    Whenever one of the autonomous regions schedules a friendly the RFEF (Spanish federation) has the power to cancel the match if the game is scheduled close to when the Spanish national team is due to play.
    For example, in 2007 Catalunya had agreed and announced a friendly against the United States in Barcelona for October 14. Despite a commitment by the Catalan Football Federation (FCF) to not call up any Spanish internationals, the RFEF cancelled the friendly since Spain were due to play on October 13 (EURO 2008 qualifier v Denmark) and October 17 (friendly v Finland).
    RFEF spokesman Jorge Carretero stated at the time:
    "There is an agreement that has been adopted to preserve the normalcy and preeminence of Spanish national team games. There is an agreement between the territorial federations and clubs that non-league games should be held on dates that do not prejudice the normal development of the championship, which always coincides with Christmas. Ratifying that agreement is the only motive for cancelling the friendly match scheduled for October 14. The decision is final. Of course, everything is negotiable, but in general these types of decisions are not appealed."
    So for now I'm just hoping the rumored friendly between Catalunya and Madrid is still on the cards for June as Spain's first match at the Confederations Cup is set for June 16.

    and for us is it better than RM or Man U win their first game for when we play RM in the return lef of the CDR?

    Manchester United is the (much) lesser of two evils. Plus, if it comes to it, I would rather we play Manchester United later in the CL than LPB.

    It is always good when Real Madrid loses any match.

    Even in, say, against At.Madrid in this year's Liga. The worse they play, the better.

    BUT if RM lose the 1st macth against Man U, then they might think we have to beat Barca in the CDR OR they might think F the CR and lets rest players for the 2nd leg of the champions league?

    CR7 is looking to close the Pichichi gap. He's down to -11 right now. Slow and steady wins the race, no?

    What happened to the days when Sevilla used to beat (or at least draw) LPB? Their encounters aren't so competitive these days.

    They beat them in the Pizjuan back in September, but they've been well and truly beaten today. Ronaldo on form ahead of the United tie.

    Man Utd @ LPB is going to be must-watch. That tie could become truly epic.

    In form, or inconsistent? Scored 3 goals in his previous La Liga home game too before disappearing for 2 matches.

    Can Sevilla spread their butt cheeks any wider?

    Just ask yourself, did LPB win their group?

    He didn't disappear, he scored the decisive goal last week. :D

    Two hattricks in a row at the Bernabeu in La Liga, and the first leg is at home on Wednesday. Now he's got some extra resting time as well, he'll be a major danger for United's defense in this kind of form.

    The Pichichi race will only get tighter towards the end of the season, especially once LPB are mathematically out of the running for La Liga. From that point on C.Ronaldo will be taking even more shots from outrageous angles and distances than he does now and he'll likely score hattricks and pokers by the boatload and maybe even a repoker or two in those worthless Liga games. He thrives in such situations, grabbing the ball from the back of the net after scoring and rushing back to the center circle so that the match can quickly restart. Such a competitor. From LPB's viewpoint, the earlier La Liga is officially lost, the more interesting the Pichichi race will become.
