BAR Vs ELC Fantasy Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Barcelona fail to make the most of Atletico Madrid’s waning form.
Not only did their 1-1 draw to Cadiz at the weekend curb their five match winning spree but more importantly, the result also saw the side fail to capitalise on Atletico Madrid’s plight.
The club also plummeted into fourth position with the result with the deficit between them and the table toppers sitting at a behemoth 8 points. The fallout from the draw were not just in terms of the league but the ramifications came out of the pitch as well.
The club’s supporters decided to take to the streets, hitting the grounds to engulf Charles Lenglet. The side’s CB was moved to tears after being hounded as the boisterous crowd made its feelings towards the last penalty Lenglet had conceded abundantly clear.

Fantasy Team Picks
Edgar Badia was responsible for Elche’s win the last time around with the shot stopper working in backdrop to record a cleansheet for the side.
Although Barcelona have been guilty of not bolstering their backline, the club can easily come up with a cleansheet today. The team is up against a unit which has the second least number of goals this term, a frugal attack which sees us opt for Samuel Umtiti, Gerard Pique and Junior Firpo.
Not only have Elche failed to boost their backline but the side has seen its defensive setup vanish up in the smoke as well. This is a side Ousmane Dembele can easily end up clobbering to see us opt for the player and Francisco Trincao who scored twice against Deportivo Alaves.
Sergio Busquets completes the trio from the club. Elche on the other hand see us immerse in the services of Jose Antonio Pomares, the club’s leading scorer with the four goals and two assists.
Emiliano Rigoni is going to be partnered alongside him, two names who can make the most of Barcelona’s defensive setup.
Lionel Messi scored for the club at the weekend to see him as ever line up for us from Barcelona.
Elche on the other hand see us immerse in the services of Lucas Boye who has accrued four goals to his name this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 16 goals to his name, Lionel is our captain while Dembele is the vice-captain.
Badia, Pique, Firpo, Samuel, Sergio, Dembele Trincao, Rigoni, Jose, Lionel, Boye
