BAR Vs EIB Dream 11 Team Prediction: The Sportsrush decides best dream 11 picks for the upcoming match between Eibar and Barcelona.
Barcelona will face Eibar in the next La Liga fixture, as the club football returns after tiring international fixtures. The Catalans had a sluggish start in the league but later recovered and now sits only 2 points away from league toppers Real Madrid.
The race for the Spanish league title is going to be tough, as the battle between both arch rival intensifies. But first, the Blaugranas have to go past Eibar this weekend before looking ahead in the league.
On the other hand, Eibar had an underwhelming start this season, as they have only won 2 games out of the 8 games played so far, meanwhile have played 3 draws and were defeated thrice.
Thus, surely it will be tough for Los Armeros to dominate over the mighty Barcelona, even though the former is playing at home. Barcelona has a good record at Ipurua Municipal Stadium.
On the other hand, Barcelona’s biggest star Lionel Messi is back in action, after missing out of majority action ever since the season started. Hence, it would be tough for Eibar’s defence to stop the trio of Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann.
Eibar Vs Barcelona Dream 11 Prediction
Marc Andre Ter Stegen: The German goalkeeper has been phenomenal for Barcelona since a long period of time. On top of that, he has already earned 40 points in Dream 11 so far. Plus, he is surely superior to his counterpart in terms of ability. Thus, he is in our lineup.
Jose Angel: The Spanish defender is a reliable option for Eibar at the left side of the defence. Although, he remained out of action due to an injury but now he is back with his side, whilst he has scored 1 goal in the last 4 matches he played this season.
Nelson Semedo: Semedo is the only proper fullback left in the Barcelona squad after Jordi Alba and Junior Firpo picked injuries. in the meantime, Semedo has been impressive for Barcelona and been handling the left side of the defence. In the 8 league games, he has provided 2 assists to the Catalans.
Clement Lenglet: The French defender is the incharge of defence in the upcoming fixture as Gerard Pique has been suspended for this fixture. Therefore, he has been included in our lineup, as he is probably the best defender in this tie.
Fabian Orellana: Orellana has been incredible for Eibar in this season. the Chilean International has amassed 3 goals and 2 assists in the 8 La Liga games he played this season. His blistering pace makes him a lethal option on the right-wing. Thus, he is a big threat to Barcelona in this tie.
Takashi Inui: The Japanese star has joined Eibar from Real Betis this season and is slowly settling in Eibar’s squad. His few moments of brilliance guarantees that he will be a success at the new club. So far in the last 6 games, he has given 2 assists to his side. hus, his potential to contribute in attack brings him in our team.
Edu Exposito: Exposito has also joined Eibar this summer and since then he has been a regular player at Eibar, featuring in all 8 games played by the club this season. In the 8 games he has played, he has scored once, not a glorious stat but certainly he is a crucial player to provide us points.
Arthur Melo: The Brazilian midfielder has arguably been the best midfielder for Barcelona this season in all the games played so far. Moreover, in the 7 games, he has played for Barcelona this season across all competitions, he has amassed 2 goals and 3 assists. Thus he will surely provide us with crucial points in this fixture.
Lionel Messi: There should not be any explanation for his inclusion, probably the best player in the world is back with his side to dominate once again, and he once again showed his calibre against Sevilla with his performance. Messi is our captain for this fixture.
Antoine Griezmann: The new Barcelona signing has been impressive for the Catalans this season and took on the burden of Barcelona when Suarez and Messi were out of action. In the 9 games he played for Barcelona across all competitions, he has scored 3 goals and gave 2 assists, an impressive stat considering he joined Barcelona just a few months ago. Thus, he is our vice-captain for this match.
Luis Suarez: The Urugyuan striker has been phenomenal this season and banging in all world-class goals. In the 8 games, he played for Barcelona this season across all competitions he has already amassed 6 goals. A phenomenal figure to boast, hence a sure inclusion in our lineup.
