I know most of us here will be watching, so I figured an open thread might be fun. Expect all sorts of diving, eye pokes, controversy, and complaining to the referees. There might actually be some brilliant soccer in there as well. Anyway, here are your starting lineups:

Real Madrid: Casillas, Altintop, Carvalho, Ramos, Coentrao, Diarra, Alonso, Pepe, Ronaldo, Higuain, Benzema

Subs: Adan, Albiol, Marcelo, Granero, Kaka, Ozil, Callejon

FC Barcelona: Pinto, Alves, Pique, Puyol, Abidal, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Fabregas, Sanchez

Subs: Valdes, Corriea, Mascherano, Dos Santos, Alcantara, Roberto, Cuenca

I'm still debating whether to switch off this stimulating Wolves/Birmingham FA Cup draw, but to each his own I guess. Have at it...
