Deportivo La Coruna striker Luis Pizzi is hoping that the rumour making the rounds about Barcelona resting Lionel Messi for the clash against his team on Saturday, is true.
Messi played in both of Argentina's World Cup qualification wins over Uruguay and Chile and it has been suggested Tito Vilanova will bench his star man at Riazor, just as he did against Getafe earlier in the season.
- Of course it would be better if Messi didn't play, But Barca re not only Messi, they are Iniesta, and Xavi, Pizzi began at a Press conference.
- But you have to admit that Messi gives them that something extra, and if he's not playing, all good. He said
- Still, they're all good and we will try to stop them all. They are one of the best teams in the world, if not the best.
- You have to work hard, have luck and hope that they don't have a good day. We must defend and be together when Barca have the ball.
