BAR vs VAL Fantasy Prediction: Two wins in succession see Barcelona ease closer to the Top Four.
Although they are far from their best off late, Barcelona have somehow managed to scamper their way to two wins on the bounce. The result whilst far from convincing have seen the club make massive strides in the league to climb as high as fifth place.
Sitting on the anvil of the top 4, Barcelona will be extremely eager to reclaim their lost glory come today. A win would see them once again lay claim on a Champions League spot, a prize set to bolster the unit when it takes to the middle.
And with Valencia shambolically falling apart and losing their way this season, Barcelona will be quietly confident of a win. Valencia’s defence has left them crestfallen with the 13th placed side failing to register a win in its last four matches.
Barcelona will capitalise on this crumbling defence to record a largely straightforward win for itself.
Fati, Roberto and Pique are all out with injury issues for Barcelona.
Kevin and Jasper are injured while Toni has tested positive for COVID.

BAR vs VAL Fantasy Prediction
He’s been massively overworked and overburdened this season but despite that, Jaume Domenech has refused to down tools. The only player interested in bolstering his side’s backline, the Valencia goal-keeper has shown the stomach for a fight in every tie.
Daniel Wass’ versatility and ability to make his presence felt up the park sees him be our pick from Valencia. Barcelona on the other hand will see an entire triad make its way into our setup with the club letting in just the one goal across its last couple of wins. We have Charles Lenglet, Sergino Dest and Jordi Alba who has the three assists all lining up for us from the team.
His club’s top scorer, Carlos Soler has been one of the most integral names for Valencia this season owing to the five goals he’s helped forage. Barcelona will see the midfield duo of Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets make its way into our setup, two names who come courtesy of their ability to transition the ball from defence to attack.
The team’s top scorer, Lionel Messi will be partnered by Antoine Griezmann owing to his three goals and two assists. The visitors on the other hand will see striker Maxi Gomez be inducted into our setup courtesy of his three goals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Messi’s five goals were enough to make him our captain while Antoine is the vice-captain.
Domenech, Alba, Wass, Charles, Dest, Soler, Jong, Busquets, Messi, Antoine, Gomez.
