BAR vs ATH Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Barcelona’s season standing in peril of collapsing around them.
From asserting their positron atop of the points tally after Real Madrid slipped up and sitting in the position for a couple of game weeks, it looked like Barcelona had finally sealed the positron in their favour. However, the side was quick to show that its underlying issues were still very much alcove with the team slipping to second place after drawing 0-0 with Sevilla the last time around.
The drab draw was a complete surrender by the side, a listless performance at a time when the team should have been at its best. The result saw Real Madrid move above them into top spot, displacing Barcelona from the coveted spot by virtue of having defeated them earlier in the season.
Adding to that horrid performance s the news of Barcelona having decided to send Arthur to Juventus with Pjanic moving the other way. The latest development follows right before today’s imminent encounter, a move which is a testament of the shambles the side’s house is in at the moment.
Where Barcelona were rocked by their draw the last time around, Athletic Bilbao mustered up a 1-0 win to arrest their wheeling set of draws. The side’s defence is a sublime unit, a backline which had ended up shunting Barcelona out of the Copa del Ray the last time these two sides had squared off.
And the visiting team will make things a travesty for a Barcelona side in tatters today as well. We envision Barcelona stumbling across the 90 minutes but eventually managing to win this one by the one goal margin.
