BAR vs LET Dream11 prediction: Barcelona could wrap the league title up this weekend, and we take a look at fantasy tips for their game vs Levante.
Barcelona are well on course for a treble this season. After years of failure in the Champions League quarterfinals, Barca finally pulled the monkey off their back as they defeated Manchester United across the two legs to set up a semifinal showdown against Liverpool.
The side is in pole position to win a second consecutive league title as well, as they need only three points to become the La Liga champions.
With a final of Copa del Rey yet to come, the Barcelona fans are in for an exciting few weeks.
However, they need to overcome Levante who are fighting a relegation battle and could prove a tough opponent at Camp Nou. We take a look at the BAR vs LET Dream11 prediction.

BAR vs LET Dream11 prediction:
Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen
The German goalkeeper has been a rock at Barcelona this season. He has conceded the second-lowest number of goals in the La Liga so far – only behind Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.
The Barca keeper also registered the fourth-highest number of saves this season across the top-5 leagues, and is expected to start in the game as Valverde eyes the La Liga title this week.
Defence: Alba, Lenglet, Umtiti, Pier
I trust the Barcelona defence to be tight throughout the game as they play for the La Liga title. A win would guarantee a second-successive league triumph and the Catalan side is unlikely to be sloppy, especially when they have a Champions League semifinal sandwiching the league fixture next week.
27/4 Levante (H)
4/5 Celta (A)
12/5 Getafe (H)
19/5 Eibar (A)

Midfield: Rakitic, Dembele, Bardhi, Campana
I expect Valverde to play his strongest midfield for the game against Levante. And so, Ivan Rakitic could make a comeback into the starting XI. Along with the Croatian midfielder, Ousmane Dembele should be a good choice for the side, as he will aim to get back to goalscoring ahead of the Liverpool clash.
I picked two Levante players in Enis Bardhi and Jose Campana for the game. Levante will be fighting to survive in the La Liga as they’re only three points ahead of the 18th-placed Girona. Both, Bardhi and Campana have been a key part of the midfield and could prove tricky for the Catalan side.
Forward: Messi, Morales
Lionel Messi may get back in the starting XI as well, as Valverde would expect the Barcelona captain to finish the game in the early minutes. I didn’t pick Luis Suarez as he might be getting rest ahead of his return to Anfield.
Spanish media outlet Sport has also reported the Uruguayan striker could be rested alongside Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto, so Lionel Messi becomes the automatic choice for the game.

Morales has been decent for Levante this season and a lot would depend on the forward to give the relegation-battlers a chance in the game.
