BAR Vs RM Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Spanish rivals spar in an encounter set to take the league by aplomb this Saturday.
This weekend is all about the Barcelona- Real Madrid rivalry. With the sides’ footballing teams going at loggerheads later on Saturday, the basketball teams have their own battle to win when the two take on each other in the Euroleague 2020-21.
Well acclimatised with each other, this encounter has all the necessary ingredients to make it a jaffer of a contest. The field will be set alight when two sides who have hated squaring off meet once again on the court, a contest which holds colossal ramifications which far extend beyond the scope of the game.
For Real Madrid in particular, this is a contest the side just can’t afford to lose at any costs. The 78-70 defeat at the hands of Olimpia Milano the last time around was the club’s third defeat in four contests with this edition of the Euroleague just not swinging in the club’s favour.
BAR Vs RM Fantasy Probable Winner
Where Real Madrid are struggling to click as a unit, Barcelona on the other hand are fulfilling their designs of making massive strides in the league standings. In 6th place with three wins from four clashes, the side has clearly flourished in the competition unlike its adversaries.
However, form has counted for little when these two have locked heads. We are going to be in for a hotly and closely contested tie today, one we envisage just about swinging in Barcelona’s favour owing to their ability to drop points across the court.

As ever, Nick Calathes will be inducted in our side as the point guard from Barcelona. He’s the fulcrum of the team’s attack, a player who is doing everything within his resources to win games for the side, a narrative alluded to in his 14 point, 6 assist and 6 rebound showing the last time around.
Real Madrid on the other hand will see us opt for the services of Facundo Campazzo. Unlike the La Liga’ he’s failed to take the Euroleague by aplomb but continues to remain a pivotal name for his side given his explosiveness.
Cory Higgins from Barcelona makes for a must have pick for the impending fixture. The shooting guard came alive for 24 points the last time he stepped out onto the court, a performance which saw his side emerge on the greener side of the rub in that fixture.
Adam Hanga has failed to have a real breakthrough season uptill now due to his inconsistency. However, he’s still managed to emerge as a steady source of points for the club inside the paint to see him be our pick from Barcelona.
Real Madrid on the other hand will see us opt for the services of Alberto Abalde-Diaz. He was solid the last time around, making full use of his ability to backtrack and shoot the triples, a skill set which earned him 14 points.
Trey Thompkins has waged a lone battle for Real Madrid in the league. Despite a clear lack of assistance, he’s remained largely dissuaded with his ability to work his way past tight spaces and work the flanks seeing him deliver 15 points the last time around.
Walter Tavares needs to be at his pristine best if his side is to have any chance of pulling off a win today. The mainstay of his side’s defence, the Real Madrid man showed why he’s such a tricky name to score against with his 8 rebounds the last time around.
Brandon Davies, Barcelona’s centre, will also be finding representation here. His 20 point and 5 rebound display the last time around was responsible for his team taking the tie into overtime with Davies emerging as a real force to be reckoned with on the day.
Calathes will be our star player owing to his ability to work the court while Tavares is the pro player.
