BAR Vs MRC Dream11 Team And Match Report: Lopsided tie set to be a canter for Barcelona who look set to cruise their way to a win today.
With the league being contested as tightly and vigorously as plausible as both Barcelona and Real Madrid find themselves level on points, this two man race sees no breathing space for either side. The slightest of slip ups could be hazardous for either side with both needing to keep snapping at each other’s heels in a bid to assert themselves as outright favourites for the La Liga title.
And its this gripping narrative which will make Barcelona extremely joyous with the tie they have been dished out for gameweek 16 in the league. The table toppers are squaring off against RCD Mallorca today, a side who look set to be plummeted into the relegation zone at the end of today’s encounter given the stern test laid out infront of them.
Where Barcelona are challenging for the title, RCD Mallorca have completely different aspirations with the club finding itself just the one point above relegation zone as things stand, a position befitting of the lacklustre brand of football they have indulged in this season. The side come into today’s contest with two straight defeats, the most recent being a 2-1 defeat against Real Betis to hand over the side their 9th defeat in 15 outings.
Elsewhere, partaking in a closely contested tie against Atletico Madrid the last time around, Barcelona just about managed to squirm their way to a 1-0 win, a result which will immensely buoy them ahead of this imminent tie. This looks set to be a foregone result, a match where a tiresome visiting unit will be put to bed with ease by a profound Barcelona side.

BAR Vs MRC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Forget a cleansheet for Mallorca today but despite this sure shot discourse, Manolo Reina still finds his place in our side for the day. The shot stopper is going to come across a carnage of shots, ones from which he should emerge with a good amount of save points to see him become our pick for the day.
BAR Vs MRC Dream11 Defenders
Althouhg Barcelona have hardly been assured in defence, Mallorca hardly look like a side who are going to perturb them too much infront of goal. Given the magnitude of play Barcelona are bound to control on the day, we don’t envisage RCD Mallorca having much chances to fathom up a goal in their favour with the likelihood of Barcelona keeping their second straight cleansheet of the bounce being gargantuan.
It sees us opt for the duo of Charles Lenglet and Junior Firpo from the outfit whilst from the other side of the segment we have gone in with a duo as well in the form of Antonio Raillo and Fran Gamez given their attacking persuasion.
BAR Vs MRC Dream11 Midfielders
Just the one pick for us from Barcelona given the spate of injuries riddling their midfield at the moment with us brining in Frenkie de Jong for this clash. From the visiting side meanwhile we begin with their leading goal scorer with four goal man, Lago Junior being our first pick from the outfit.
He’s scored his side’s previous three penalties, a role which makes him an instant pick for this contest with CDM Salva Sevilla coming in to partner him up given the tackles and blocks he’ll be pulling off on the day come today.
BAR Vs MRC Dream11 Strikers
With a goal in his last tie, Lionel Messi is now Barcelona’s leading goal scorer with the 9 goals and 4 assists to see him become a must have player from the side for the day. Antoine Griezmann will be accompanying him with the duo facing off against a disgruntled outfit today while from RCD Mallorca we have decided to move in with the selection of Ante Budimir.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lenglet will be stepping out as our captain for the day while Messi is our vice-captain.
