Messi, Suarez, Griezmann, Neymar, Dembele, Coutinho.

Imagine the one that you spent 160m on is 6th choice.

Feel bad for Dembélé, he deserves playing time

After all the talk of Pogba we may see the same team of Madrid than some years ago with Isco, James or Bale in the lineup lol

Carvajal-Ramos-Varane-Marcelo
Casemiro
Modric-Kroos
James or Bale / Benzema / Hazard

Primera Liga kicks off in San Mames sans Leo but with new additions - unfortunately Valverde remains making it impossible to predict how the season will ultimately end. In Europe anyway because Barcelona should win the league again due to Messi and De Jong. Frenkie is every bit the generational talent he has shown to be for a couple years now, with elite teammates (Particularly Messi) I am optimistic of the entertaining possibilities going forward. FDJ was sensational in pre-season and has yet to actually play with Leo in a match - but he is a throwback to the profile of midfielder you simply do not see much of anymore. His impact will truly be special IMHO

Neymar sideshow aside, still issues to reconcile internally apart from Valverde. Coutinho, Rakitic & Vidal are all players that shouldn't be in the squad any longer while Puig absolutely should. Meanwile, Dembele is fit for his last chance at Barcelona - especially now with Griezmann to link up with on/off the pitch. Like B.Mendy @City, Dembouz has it all to prove or he will surely be shown the exit. I liked what I saw this summer and in training sessions, a lot to be optimistic about but injuries are impossible to predict

For those with coverage, ITV4 will be televising the match live

Frenkie and Arthur in the same midfield is really crazy to have. Great players on-the-ball. Curious to see griezman over the season. Feels like a total waste. He plays in the same space messi plays. Suarez is back to world class striking and I won't bench him at all. Messi back wide?? Griezman wide? I don't know but a Valverde problem...

Hopefully Atletico can put up a fight this year like a few years ago. Real I just can't see competing with those 2, but hopefully isco can re-discover his absolute world-class form from back during their 2nd CL win and make it competitive.

It'll be great to have a 3 way competition.

Looks like he will get his chance centrally after Suarez went off.

If he improves his finishing he can remind me of Samuel Eto'o.
