BAR vs VLD Dream11 : Barcelona return to the bedlam of La Liga after protests saw their match against Real Madrid being called off at the weekend
They were slated to face off against Real Madrid in arguably one of the most colossal battles in La Liga but as unruly protestors engulfed the region, Barcelona were left bereft of action at the weekend. Their match against Real Madrid was postponed, leaving both of the title challengers with only nine matches played after 10 rounds of football in the league.
The set of events which unravelled saw Barcelona being displaced from top spot in the league with Granada moving into first place, a position the side will be looking to reclaim come today. Currently sitting in second position with 19 points, a win would see Barcelona go right back into the pinnacles of the points tally, something which will buoy the side when they take on Real Valladolid today.
Elsewhere, while Barcelona have ambitions of extending their current four match winning spree, Real Valladolid themselves are no longer the pushovers they looked in the opening exchanges of the season. After winning just once in their opening five matches, the side are unbeaten in their previous five matches to go an ascendancy in the league they’ll be looking to further extend come today.
The side come into today’s forthcoming clash having defeat Eibar 2-0 previously, a result which will make Barcelona extremely jittery when the two sides meet each other. This promises to be a cracker of a match, an affair where both the sides will indulge in a closely contested clash as either looks to come out of the ambit of this match unscathed.

BAR vs VLD Dream11 Picks
If Real Valladolid are going to have any chance of winning this match, the side will need their shot stopper Jordi Masip to be at the pinnacle of his game. The shot stopper is an extremely articulate shot stopper, a pair gloves who will amass a bagful of points given the save points he looks likely to pull off come today.
Despite both the sides having let in just the 19 goals in the 19 matches they have played in between them, we don’t see either pulling off a cleansheet today. Barcelona are always prone to slipping in atleast the one goal and Real Valladolid have shown their vulnerabilities infront of stellar attacking sides, seeing us go in with the bare minimum of three picks for this encounter.
We begin by getting in Charles Lenglet and Nelson Semedo from the home side for this encounter, two attackingly inclined defenders who are asked to consistently gallop their way down the park by the side. Elsewhere we have the one pick come in for us from the visiting side as well with Mohammed Salisu being our pick for this impending fixture after he found a goal for his side to emphasise his goal scoring capabilities.
A massive brunt of Real Valladolid’s attacking gameplan will rely on their top goal scorer, Oscar Plano for today’s clash. The player has scored four goals for his side along with picking up the one assist as well, a name who has been the focal point of his side’s attacking travails.
We have Toni Villa come in from the side as well for this encounter while we have brought in an akin combination from the other side as well in the form of Arthur Melo and Frenkie de Jong for this clash, players who’ll be asked to control the midfield for their side today.
His four goals and three assists make Antoine Griezmann the first name to be brought into this slot of our Dream 11 side with Lionel Messi coming in as well from Barcelona. These are two integral figures of Barcelona’s attacking plays, names the side will ask to rummage past the visiting side’s defence and guide their side to a win today.
After his goal in the previous encounter, Sergi Guardiola is our selection from the opposing side to wrap up our Dream 11 side for this fixture.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Semedo will be our captain for this encounter while Messi is being made the vice-captain.
