Week 29: Barca's defensive options

With the shock news that Barcelona defender Eric Abidal is undergoing surgery for a liver tumour this week, fantasy football liga players will be asking themselves who will come in to replace the Frenchman at the back against Getafe this weekend. As much as our sympathy goes out to this outstanding defender, we have to be asking ourselves if this is a chance to pick up a defensive bargain?

Simplyfutbol and other sources suggest it could be youngster Andreu Fontas, who Guardiola has already given first team experience this term. It could be an opportunity for Gabi Milito to assert himself at the back. He cost 20 million euros when he signed for Barca in 2007 but has not quite looked a Barca player when given the chance this year. Talisman Carles Puyol could be drafted back in following injury. But more likely, it will be Sergei Busquets dropping back to partner Gerard Pique, with Mascherano coming into DMC. Not much fun for ff players as Busquets cannot benefit from CS points as he is classed as a midfielder. :-(
