After a shaky start to the La Liga season, Barcelona are firmly established in the title race, having cut Real Madrid's lead to just one point and looking strong again in domestic competiton.
Now the Blaugrana hope to maintain their continetal momentum and stay at the top of Group C in the UEFA Champions League. The group stage opener was spectacular, with a 7-0 rout of Celtic and the best performance of the season so far for Luis Enrique's side. But the next three games are the toughest tests for the Catalans, including two straight matches against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.
Before that glorious clash, though, a trip to Germany awaits, and facing Borussia Mönchengladbach on the road will not be easy. Gladbach have won the last 11 games at home in all competitions, have an exceptional fan base who create a hostile environment at the Borussia-Park, and the team is young, hungry, talented and very well coached by Andre Schubert.
Luis Enrique will certainly look to field the strongest possible lineup, which is why he rotated against Sporting Gijón on the weekend. Players like Mascherano, Alba, Rakitic and Iniesta will return to the side, but would they come back on your favorite lineup?
