Victor Valdes has impressed Pep Guardiola very much in the champions league win over Rubin Kazan. B-team players Fontas and Victor Vazquez scored the goals that will give the Catalans a huge morale boost and allow them to look to the future with optimism.

With the group leadership already assured, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola rested key players, giving a chance to several B-team players as well as reserve goalkeeper Pinto, who was preferred to first choice keeper Victor Valdes. Bojan Krkic was also given a run out.

The Catalans had failed to beat Ruben in their previous meeting this season and lost twice when the two sides played last year.

Barcelona meet Real Madrid next week, and may have been resting their stars for that big Classico match.
