    Though I don't think this is necessarily "must win" in terms of the rest of the season, it's certainly "must not lose". We have to play with the mentality that we absolutely have to win though.

    no, it's a must win!

    talking about mentality, Masch should be on the bench with his submissive attitude, Puyol will never say shit like this:

    "Cristiano is an extraordinary player who has won the Ballon d'Or for that exact reason. He can score a goal from out of nowhere, he has a lot of quality and a tough job awaits when we face him. It will be hard to stop him and I hope that he will not be at his best on Sunday. We will try to keep him on a tight leash and not give him any space, but he's the kind of player who can still hurt you even if you mark him tight.

    "In the end, players like him are among the best in the world. With Ronaldo, his goals are often the result of his ability rather than of defensive mistakes."

    its ok to praise a rival

    Masch seems like the sort of guy that does his talking on the pitch, much like Puyol

    Now we will play AM at least 3 times and RM at least twice. All title still possible, although I'm afraid the team will be focusing solely on CL if we drop 3 point in this classico.

    Heads up, folks in the US:

    Europe doesn't change to Daylight Savings until March 30, so this match kicks off at 4pm EDT/1pm PDT.

    I agree. Sort of... just hope Barca doesn't go into the match thinking they desperately need to win at all costs! What I mean is, a draw is still better than a loss so in that sense its not strictly a "must win". Don't totally go all out if the match is still tied and throw the game away on a counter like 2 years ago. LPB's next game is away to Sevilla then away to Sociedad soon after. It's not impossible that Barca will still only find themselves 1-2 points behind two weeks from now even if they draw this one.

    I understand your point; however, Masch typically leaves his submissive attitude on the bench while playing.

    being respectful is not the same as being submissive.
    there's nothing submissive about El Jefe

    Despite some of the fans saying that we should go 4-3-3 for this match, I guess i am i the minority to root for the 4-3-1-2.

    I am happy in that Tito will almost certainly go with 4 midfielders And 2 attackers, which I BTW, think is the best formation given our players at the moment. The only place I don't agree with Tito is starting Neymar instead of Pedro.

    I believ, we have a great chance to win this match. However, we should not go gung ho And wait for the right moment to strike. The players have played their best in every big match this season and I hope the trend will continue in this match.

    I hope so, it's one thing to praise a player but saying we can't stop him and suggest we raise the white flag is not an attitude before going to war.

    Anyway, I have faith in our players and Tata. We did well against big teams while Real look good but only against smaller teams.

    Tata will play with same exact formation he played against City. Now the question is who to start Sanchez, Neymar or Pedro?

    Its going to be a hell of a game. We will definately start with Bus, Xavi, Cesc and Iniesta to keep possession. For this game I would actually go with Adriano at left back to start. And on form Pedro should get the starting nod above Neymar...but because of politics, there is a small chance of that happening. Neymar scored in the last classico anyways, so maybe that is enough justification.
