1. Messi
2. Pedro
3. Villa
4. Pique
5. Iniesta

I put all forwards as the top three because sometimes a penalty kick round can be over in the first three shots, so it's best to have the best 3 from the very beginning to make sure you can kill it if the other team fails. Iniesta is the ultimate big game player, hence he can handle the pressure of being 5th pretty well, and Pique was left at 4th by the process of elimination.

Most important penalty is the 1st and the 5th. The 1st can give you a lead that adds a lot of pressure (60% of the time the 1st to shoo wins the penalties). The last is obviously very important.

1. Messi
2. Pedro (never seen him take a PK but he should just shoot it like he does)
3. Xavi (him or iniesta).
4. Abidal (never seen him take a PK but he is very cool)
5. Villa

For barrilete and puyol, why did u guys place pique over other players, say like Xavi, or Alves? I'm sure they're not miles ahead because pique is exceptional in front of goal, for being a big CB. But I cannot remember if he's featured in a shootout before. Does anyone know if he has?

For me,
1. Messi, as he is our penalty taker.
2. Pedro
3. Villa, since they're our strident.
4. Cesc. Lol, just joking, but I would place him at 4.
Real #4. Iniesta, since he obviously has scored massively important goals,
And 5. Alves, because when he doesn't f*** it up, his set piece is very very strong.

If any of these players were out for any reason, then I would have Xavi step in, since his set piece isn't too terrible either. And he's f'n Xavi!!!

Don't screw around... keep it simple and keep your best takers at the top. I've personally experienced the bad with trying to put your better takers later in the 5, what if its over before they even get their chance?

Just to shake things up though... the penalty shootout is after 120 minutes so there will have been subs... I doubt Iniesta and maybe Villa or Pedro will still be on, so would you use Afellay/Sanchez and Keita or maybe Pique and Alves?

Also very surprised you guys leave Xavi out... He's surely the number 3 taker at the moment. The most experienced player, cool & calm, knows how to take them. Certainly has to be there ahead of Pique, Iniesta and Alves... who are going for that 5th spot.

Has Xavi ever taken a penalty? Maybe yes, but I can't remember.

Can you explain why? I think Pedro handles pressure well and is a good goal scorer. So why not?

I'm surprised some people put Villa first, it seems to me that of all the forwards + iniesta he is the likeliest to mess up under pressure.

I've read that Pedro is the second best finisher in the squad from training

Ein english jewel?

I haven't thought of Busquets, but he is sooooo calm, that he might be a great Pk taker.

Alfred, Villa is a great penalty taker, I think he should be the main taker after Messi. Why you think he should mess up?
