BAR vs RB Dream11 : Barcelona look to recover after suffering a harrowing defeat on opening day when they take on Real Betis in gameweek 2 of La Liga
For current champions Barcelona, life in La Liga 2019-20 couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start. The side were defeated 1-0 by Athletic Bilbao, a stunning upset which saw them earn massive flak from the football fraternity after putting in a horrid performance despite spending a staggering amount in the transfer window.
It’s a performance they’ll be looking to forge when they clash heads against Real Betis today, a side who ended up suffering a sordid defeat against newly promoted Real Valladolid. In what was a disappointing performance by the outfit who were reduced to 10 men after goal-keeper Robles was given a red card, the side hardly inspired, failing to adjust to the man’s disadvantage they were left with.
Also what increases the anticipation of today’s encounter is the match we saw being played out last season between the two units, an enthralling 4-3 encounter. The seven goal thriller saw Real Betis come off with a sensational result, a performance the side will be looking to resonate today as they look to get their first three points on the points tally.

BAR vs RB Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With Real Betis bound to be plundered in this encounter with Barcelona breaching their defence at will, this encounter is one which asks for their goal-keeper to come in. With Dani Marin being accorded a chance to play for his side today after Robles is unavailable for this one, the shot stopper will be looking to seize the chance with both hands.
Expect him to make some good saves and get in a bagful of points in Dream 11 today.
Defenders for BAR vs RB Dream11
With Barcelona’s defence hardly looking solid either and Real Betis known to have a wavering backline, expect this to be a fixture where a cleansheet might be absent for both the outfits. This sees us opt for the attacking minded fullbacks, names who’ll be cantering their way into the opposition’s side of the park in a bid to provide support to their wide attacking players.
We are going with Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo and Clement Lenglet based off that narrative while from the opposition we have opted for their marauding fullback, Alfonso Pedraza.
Midfielders for BAR vs RB Dream11
We’ll be beginning with the picks from Real Betis first with this department holding players who’ll be holding immense roles for the side if they are to taste success today. New signing and CAM, Nabil Fekir comes in from the side along with Cristian Tello while we have the two players come in from Barcelona as well in the form of Ivan Rakitic and Frenkie de Jong.
Strikers for BAR vs RB Dream11
Lionel Messi missed out on the previous fixture for Barcelona but should be back for this one, seeing him be included into our Dream 11 side as well. We have also opted for new signing Antoine Griezmann, someone who was embroiled in an ugly transfer from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona with Barcelona using vested means to acquire him.
Elsewhere we have gone for Real Betis’ striker upfront as well, getting in Lorenzo Moron for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Tello is our captain for this encounter while Messi is our vice-captain.
