After a nice Copa del Rey blowout win, Barcelona enter a very important 4-day stretch. First, there's the La Liga encounter with Barça's biggest Catalan rival, Espanyol. Then, the all-star UEFA Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain, that will decide who's coming out on top at Group F, as well as to test the Blaugrana in a very, very difficult match.

Of course the PSG game is impossible to forget, but the Espanyol game should also be fundamental on the schedule. Not only because it's a rivalry match, but also because Barça can't let Real Madrid get away with a bigger gap in the standings. Barça are also chasing a record: the first six-game win streak against Espanyol in the history of the Catalunya Derby.

Andrés Iniesta is back, as he showed in the Copa win against Huesca. The midfielder is ready for selection, and he's expected to play again. Rafinha Alcântara scored his first goal as a Blaugrana, and he wants to keep the momentum going. It's up to coach Luis Enrique to decide whether or not the Brazilian will play.

So how about playing Lucho and deciding which lineup will play on Sunday against Espanyol? It's simple: please fill out the attached form below and select the eleven lads you want to see starting, as long as the seven bench players. Don't forget to also use the comment section below to state why you chose a specific squad, so we can all have a nice discussion. Have fun!
