BAR Vs ATL Dream11 Prediction: Barcelona Vs Atletico Madrid Best Dream 11 Team for Spanish Super Cup Semi-Final. Real Madrid awaits today’s winner in the summit clash.
Breaking away from the rut which the competition had become, the Spanish Super Cup threw its doors open to two more sides this edition. Barcelona and Real Madrid were joined by the other two sides in the op 4 of La Liga with the new format seeing Valencia and Atletcio Madrid dwell into the land of the tournamnet.
And Atletico Madrid will be getting their first taste of the Spanish Super Cup come today when they face off against Barcelona in the second semi-final. The winner of today’s tie will go onto lock heads against Real Madrid with the side having routed Valencia 3-1 yesterday.
For Atletcio Madrid, this clash comes at just the right time. After a languid start to the 2019-20 instalment of La Liga, the side have managed to register three wins in succession to move all the way into third place. It’s a set of events which have seen them beginning to unlock the true potential of the side, one which will be paid a massive testament to today with a win over Barcelona.
On the other hand, Barcelona had to endure a massively dejecting 2-2 draw against last placed Espanyol in their first outing of 2020. It was a calamitous result for the side, allowing Real Madrid to move level on points with them, a defensive display they know they can’t afford to repeat today.
It’s extremely dicey to determine a winner from this clash, especially with us unsure of how both the teams will be naming their playing 11s for the day. What just about sees Barcelona hold an edge today is the repertoire of attacking players in their kitty, names who are capable of fathoming up a goal at any juncture.

Dream 11 Picks
Although we would have loved to venture in with Jan Oblak for this encounter, we’ll be picking up Neto from Barcelona. It’s majorly due to the injuries Atletcio Madrid have suffered at the moment, ones which could see them be famished in their quest of scoring today.
Atletico Madrid are yet to regain the same sound and compact look in defence which has seen them being regarded in such high esteem but the side have managed to imbed some semblance into their defensive showings. They have let in a mere 12 goals all term, clamping down on the opposition judiciously to thrive defensively to see us entrust faith in the side’s backline for this one.
We begin with Felipe Monteiro with the CB having scored for the side in their most recent outing. Renan Lodi and Jose Giminez will be accompanying him for the outing while from the other side of the facet, Charles Lenglet completes our set of picks.
Frenkie de Jong has settled into this Barcelona side quite quickly, adjusting himself to the demands of the side to become ther best midfielder this season. He’s controlled possession for them astutely, seeing him being handed over a free hand to express himself freely in attack as well o make him our pick from Barcelona from the side.
Elsewhere, his side’s talisman in defence, Thomas Partey has been an instrumental figure for Atletcio Madrid in their bid of shunting out sides. Although he doesn’t come imbued with an attacking inclination, he’s set to roll in his way a slew of blocks and tackles to see us get him in from the side.
We are going to be accompanying him with Vitolo, someone who looks likely to play this one for Atletcio Madrid as they look to toy around with their playing 11 on the day.
Althouhg its extremely likely that Barcelona could end up massively shuffling their side, we just couldn’t ignore these two names. His side’s leading scorer with the 13 goals and 6 assists, Lionel Messi and with the 11 goals and 7 assists, Luis Suarez are both going to find a place in our side.
In case they don’t play, Antoine Griezmann and Charles Perez will replace them while from the opposition, their leading goal scorer with the goals to his name, Álvaro Morata will be ending proceedings for us for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are picking up Felipe as our side’s captain while Messi is the vice-captain.
