Barça Atlétic v Orihuela

While most of us are caught up in the Barça-Sevilla match tonight, we're forgetting that tomorrow is the final round of Segunda B!

Atlétic face seventh-place (and Copa del Rey contenders) Orihuela at Los Arcos at 18.00. Atlétic have already secured a place in the play-off round for promotion, but are in second place five points behind Sant Andreu. They will close out the regular season as the runners-up whether or not they win on Sunday. Not bad considering the squad's shaky start and injury plague.

Defenders Marc Muniesa and Andreu Fontàs are out injured for four weeks and three months respectively, and midfielder Jonathan dos Santos isn't expected to return for another week. Muniesa has already been out for four with a hamstring tear, Fontàs was injured in training and had surgery this week, and dos Santos has a minor hamstring strain he suffered two weeks ago. Marc Bartra, Oriol Romeu, and Armando Lozano were injured for last week's win against València Mestalla, and only Armando may be cleared to play.

Jonathan Soriano remains the squad's top scorer with 18 goals, and is expected to start. Luis Enrique faces a challenge in choosing the rest of the starting eleven, especially his back line and keeper. Oier and Masip have both been playing well on somewhat of a rotation, with Masip playing against Mestalla.

Bona sort i Visca Barça!

El Clasico: coming right up!

Quote of the day:

"We will not beat Madrid 6-0, or 5-0, I can assure you of that. We've already won the media game 6-0. Brilliant. But the real game starts on Saturday at 10." - Pep Guardiola

Video of the day:

Barcelona's last win at Camp Nou in 2004, the game which many saw as a turning point for both Barca and Real - Barca on their way to dominance and Real, to decline. So it proved.

+ Surprise! Andres Iniesta is back in full training and may even be fit enough to be on the bench. It's a very slim chance, but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

On Real's side, Sneijder has been included in their squad, but may not be fit enough to feature. So the final list of probably absences for Real looks like this:

Injured: Van Nistelrooy, Diarra, De la Red, Heinze, Sneijder, Miguel Torres, Pepe
Suspended: Robben, Marcelo

+ There are outlandish rumours that Juande Ramos will play 5 defenders. Which isn't a very Real Madrid thing to do, is it?

+ Marca appears to suggest that Sergio Ramos will be the one with the fun, fun task of marking Leo Messi. (You'll notice that they're assuming that Messi will play on the right, which with Pep isn't exactly a certainty.)

+ Former players Mark van Bommel, Juliano Belletti, and Gio van Bronckhorst on El Clasico.

Soapbox time: form means nothing in this game. It's not going to be easy, no matter what it seems like. Personally, I agree with Xavi and co.: getting the 3 points is the most importance consideration here.

Please join us here for the live freak-out reaction post, Saturday 10PM local time. I'll be freaking out at work by myself, desperate to know the result. Pity me. *g*

Visca el Barca!
