CEV Vs BAR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Last gasp effort needed from Barcelona in a bid to keep their title aspirations alive.
Down in the dumps against Athletic Bilbao with yet another uninspired attacking display threatening to push them further back in their La Liga title fight, Barcelona fortuitously managed to scram their way through to the three points on the day. The side squirmed its way through to a 1-0 win, a performance which saw them maintain their identity in this season’s skirmish.
While they are still in second place, the fact that only a superior record sees Real Madrid in first place will come across as some kind of solace for this beleaguered Barcelona side. The team has been bludgeoned ever since its draw to Sevilla, a result which had calamitous fallouts outside the pitch.
Where the style of play and high handedness of some players was once again berated at the club, the workings of the management were slated as well after the club decided to sell Arthur to Barcelona. This is a team in a pickle, a side which has over the last couple of years completely lost its way owing to a slew of unsavoury issues.
In the midst of this plight, a rejuvenated Celta Vigo side is the last team Barcelona would have wanted to come across. With two wins on the bounce, Celta Vigo have veered their way clear of the relegation zone, a rejuvenated side which has thrived to hit seven goals in those wins.
However, despite their rejuvenation, Barcelona make for way too staunch an opposition. This will be a second successive win for the visiting team, one which keeps them abreast with Real Madrid.

CEV Vs BAR Dream11 Picks
While Celta Vigo’s attack has been hailed and lauded for its electric brand of football across the last couple of encounters, the defence has quietly gone unnoticed. The team has pulled off two cleansheets in the same time, ones in which Ruben Blanco has had a massive part with the goal-keeper clobbering away shots at will.
Although Celta Vigo have gone onto score 7 in their last two clashes including a 6-0 win in that period, the side that the team has endured the majority of the season as a lax attack is still every much there for everyone to see. The side has a frugal 29 goals, a tedium which the team has failed to wrench out of to stay embroiled in the relegation zone quagmire.
Up against a Barcelona side which has kept five successive cleansheets, we envision Celta Vigo’s attacking travesties coming to the fore once again. This could easily end up as a cleansheet for the visiting team to see us opt for all of Gerard Pique, Charles Lenglet, Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba.
With the 6 assists this season, its safe to say that Denis Suarez has managed to imbue fresh life into his season. The Celta Vigo man is paired alongside Okay Yokuslu, tow names who’ll play a quiessential role for the side in their attacking travails, a duo massively responsible for the side’s reinvigoration.
Elsewhere, Arturo Vidal is picked up by us from Barcelona given his ability to control the middle area with his tackles and blocks.
Topping Barcelona’s scoring ranks for yet another season, Lionel Messi’s contributions have been more telling now than ever. At a time when the club is completely collapsing in the attacking front, the player has managed to roll in the 21 goals and 16 assists to make him a must have pick for us.
With 11 goals and 8 assists, striker Luis Suarez comes in from the side as well for us while Celta Vigo find their top scorer with the 11 goals and 2 assists, Iago Aspas wrap up our set of picks for the imminent affair.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 37 times he’s helped to craft goals for his side see Messi captain our side while Alba is the vice-captain.
