They have yet to play a full game together but I can already see flashes of brilliance between him and Schwein. What an awesome defensive midfield duo this is going to be.
for Gustavo who's bound to lose his starting spot.
well they are in a weak group in CL so they can easily rotate players so Javi, Shaqiri, Can, Muller, Mandzukic can get a lot of playing time
i see barca doing the same thing in CL in the group stages - Song, Thiago, Montoya, Tello, Cesc will play a lot
