SPANISH CUP | FC BARCELONA POSSIBLE STARTING 11 LINE-UP

Atmosphere building up at Barcelona as the 2º leg of the Spanish Cup (Copa del Rey) semi-final against Real Madrid is just a day away. The tie is open as the 1º leg home game finished in a 1 - 1 draw. 

While Real Madrid contemplates their starting 11 line-up on whether Kaka starts in place of Di Maria, Barcelona has its own thinking to do as well. The loss in Champions League against AC Milan brought on criticism that Barça hasn´t a "Plan B" when teams put up a defensive strategy. Barça plays its possession game but bounces into & off the "wall" set up by their defensively situated opponents.  Caretaker Coach Roura is meditating the starting 11, as his habitual "star" line-up has only managed 2 wins from the last 5 games. Added to this Barcelona is being scored goals above the rate that we all have been accustomed to in the last seasons.

The speculated starting 11 at this precise moment is most likely:
Pinto ( goalie used for Spanish Cup ) , Alves, Pique, Puyol, Alva, Busquets, Xavi, Cesc , Iniesta, Messi & Pedro.
