Dream11 team for Barcelona Vs Real Sociedad
Marc-Andre Ter Stegen: Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has kept 20 clean sheets in all competitions so far. The German International has proved to be one of the best goalkeepers in recent history with tremendous consistency. He has lightning reflexes and makes plenty of saves.
Gerard Pique: Gerard Pique has been one of the best defenders this season. The Spanish International is the heart of Barcelona’s defence and will prove to be vital in the host’s hopes of keeping a clean sheet. Besides, he possesses a serious threat from the set pieces too.
Diego Llorente: Diego Llorente is the mainstay of Real Sociedad’s defence having attracted plenty of interest from hosts of European clubs. The Spanish International is yet to open his account in the La Liga, but he has done well in the defensive department to keep his name intact on the team sheet.
Samuel Umtiti: Samuel Umtiti’s majority of the season has been shackled due to the knee injury. The world cup winner has rarely been involved in the first string team and he could get a recall for Sunday’s game against Real Sociedad. Having formed a formidable partnership with Gerard Pique before, he would want to replicate the same.
Jordi Alba: Jordi Alba is one among the many players who have extraordinary telepathy with his teammates. The left-back has 10 assists this campaign and his linkup play with the forward makes him a joy to watch.
Mikel Merino: Mikel Merino is one of the best performers for Real Sociedad this season. Moving from Newcastle United, the Spanish International has had enough grip to hold his place in the starting lineup with consistent displays. He is a good passer and makes plenty of interceptions in the middle of the park.
Igor Zubeldia: 22-year-old Igor Zubeldia likes to sit back with the defence and dictate the play from the back. The midfielder has been one of the best players in recent weeks and he would like to continue his performance against FC Barcelona in the weekend.
Mikel Oyarzabal: Mikel Oyarzabal is Real Sociedad’s leading scorer this season with 12 goals in the La Liga this season. The Spanish International is the integral start in the front line with the capability of playing across the forward area. He is the main source of goals for the visitors and he would want to continue his finesse in front of the goal post.
Ousmane Dembele: Ousmane Dembele has recovered from an injury recently, but Philippe Coutinho has been trusted over the Frenchman. However, the Frenchman was in a tremendous form before sitting on the sidelines. He will be slotted in, having scored 11 goals in all competitions this campaign.
Lionel Messi: It is no brainer to have Lionel Messi as the captain. The Argentine International has made 59 goal contributions this season in all competitions and he is the main man for Barcelona. His inclusion will boost Barcelona’s hopes of scoring more against a moderate defence.
Luis Suarez: Luis Suarez is supposed to have an off-season, but he has managed to score 20 goals in the league this season. The 32-year-old will lead the line for Barcelona and he will surely have his say in front of the goal on Sunday.
