Dont know why Chelsea fans are being so dramatic about it, Shakhtar have won every game at home so far, they wont want to finish second in the group, and Chelsea should beat Nordsjælland, so its certainly not impossible
You think looking at our lineup it tells us he'll play a 4-3-3 vs city with fletch/scholes/carrick and rooney out on the winger and valencia/young on the other side.
Obviously clubs have the right to look after their own interests regarding resting their top players but I don't like this at all, especially when so much is on the line. Doesn't playing a "weakened side" in the prem get you a fine?
Hopefully it doesn't cost Celtic.
Think the Premier League scrapped that rule soon after they fined Blackpool for it a couple of seasons ago
I can understand why Barca are doing this, heck if Celtic did the same thing I sure as hell woouldn't be complaining but it does feel like a bit of a kick in the teeth when you consider that we had to Defend for our life's against the likes of Messi, Xavi, Sanchez, Villa, Pedro & Iniesta to get 3 points
