Preview: Granada vs FC Barcelona (game 24 liga 2012/13)

16 Feb

After a week watching others strut their stuff in the Champions League Barça are back in action tomorrow evening with a league fixture at Granada’s Los Cármenes stadium (Saturday 8 pm). Jordi Roura and Tito Vilanova have named a nineteen-man squad for the trip with the only first-team absentees being Johnathan dos Santos, Eric Abidal, David Villa, who has been in and out of hospital this week with kidney stone problems, and Xavi who trained normally today but who is being kept in reserve for next Wednesday’s Champions League game at AC Milan.The old adage in football is to take every game as it comes, and while for a player this is almost certainly the best philosophy, for a coach in the modern game there are surely situations when he finds himself looking at the coming fixtures with ample consideration for possible rotations. With Barça now twelve points clear of Atlético following their defeat at Rayo last Sunday it would be easy to give tomorrow’s game less priority given that in the following two weeks we play Milan and Sevilla before the cup and league clásicos with Real Madrid.
