BAR Vs VAL Dream 11 Team Prediction: The Sportsrush brings you the best Dream 11 picks from Barcelona Vs Valencia on Saturday.
With the completion of the international break, La Liga is set to return as all the players are back to their clubs. So, in this game-week Barcelona will face Valencia in the 5th game-week of the Spanish league.
However, the Catalan giants are marred with injuries, since Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is ruled out due to an injury and Luiz Suarez is also not match fit.
Although, alternatives used in Ansu Fati and Carles Perez has been successful so far for Ernesto Valverde, but a side like Valencia would be the toughest job to deal amidst such crisis.
On the other hand, Valencia are also not having bright days, as in a shocking news, they have sacked their manager Marcelino, who made Valencia win the Copa Del Rey against Barcelona.
Further, Los Ches replaced Marcelino with Albert Celades just a day prior to clash with Barcelona. Hence, Valencia are expected to be clueless tomorrow night.
Under such crisis, Barcelona have been able to survive due to the brilliance of Antoine Griezmann, who have been able to fetch points for the Blaugranas with his scoring spree.
Barcelona Vs Valencia
Marc Andre Ter Stegen: The German goalkeeper is among the top-3 goalkeepers in the world on current basis. Moreover, he is surely better than Jasper Cillessen, who was his deputy at Barcelona before moving to Valencia. Thus, Stegen is our keeper for thr team.
Jordi Alba: Alba is undoubtedly a fierce attacking force from the backline, his pinpoint crosses, and ability to link with midfield is defence-tearing. Unfortunately, Lionel Messi will not be there to make the pair complete. Yet, there is no doubt on Alba’s abilities.
Jose Gaya: Gaya is a great prospect to fetch points from defence and has been rock-solid with his performances. Gaya can surely fetch us crucial points.
Daniel Wass: Wass is no different from other two defenders. Even Wass is known for his attacking profiency, and have played in midfield at times due to his attacking proficiency.
Sergi Roberto: The Spanish midfielder is in the plans of Ernesto Valverde this season. However, tomorrow night, he might be played in place of Nelson Semedo, who is doubtful for tomorrow’s match. However, if he does not play and Semedo does, then you can either choose Semedo or Arthur Melo.
Frenkie De Jong: The new Barcelona signing has been promising so far but yet to flourish. However, he can still be crucial against Valencia, and set to feature on Saturday. Thus he is in our team.
Goncalo Guedes: Guedes is one of the regular players at Valencia, and with his experience, he is set to be handpicked by the new manager.
Daniel Parejo: Parejo is probably the best player in this Valencia team and can influence the game on his own. Moreover, he is clinical in front of the goal, and major source of earning points in our team, in the last match only, he scored a brace for Valencia. Thus, he is our vice-captain.
Antoine Griezmann: The sensational signing by Barcelona is slowly proving his worth, as he is single handedly making Barcelona win points in Messi’s absence. Undoubtedly, he will be the best player on the pitch, if the Argentine International does not play.
Carles Perez: The young La Masia talent has raised eye balls along with Ansu Fati. Perez has been impressive with his two chances with Barceloan, and it seems Valverde will once again trust him on Saturday.
Kevin Gameiro: Valencia’s forward player will play along with Rodrigo upfront and have certain chances of scoring. If he does it, we will fetch us points.
Note: Adjust your team if Lionel Messi plays, since we still got funds left even after picking this team. One can make certain inclusions to fit in Messi, if the Argentine international is declared fit for the match.
When we set out to make our Dream 11 side for this particular fixture, there were a slew of factors which were incorporated while selecting our players. The overall stature of the two teams partaking in the contest today, importance of the player to the side, their roles in the formation, defenders who are likely to score, players on penalty duties and pivotal players were in the attacking facet were given utmost importance.
