MLC Vs BAR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: League leaders Barcelona return to the field in a bid to keep cantering their way towards the glistening trophy
Having played hide and seek with Real Madrid all season long, Barcelona finally managed to squirm ahead of Real Madrid in the clamour of this season’s La Liga title. It’s been a story of cat and mouse between these two all season, one which has engulfed us in an enticing, topsy-turvy contest between the two sides.
With Real Madrid being defeated 2-1 by Real Betis, Barcelona ensured they were quick to pile on their opponents’ travesty. The side just about managed to scram its way through to a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad, a result which currently sees them on 58 points, the one point above Real Madrid at the moment.
Where Barcelona are fighting for the tile, Mallorca have completely different ambitions. The side is currently engulfed in the relegation battle with the 18th placed side sitting on the cusp of safety after defeating Eibar 2-1 in its last fixture in the league.
While Eibar have been hailed for their newly foraged fight and character, the side will fail to salvage anything from today’s encounter. Barcelona’s attacking unit is just way too well versed and dominant a force, one which will do more than enough to accumulate three points from the match.

- Leonardo and Lumor will both be sitting today’s fixture out for the home side with the players struggling with injuries.
- Dembele is currently suffering a long time on the sidelines due to his injury while Lenglet will be out for the encounter for Barcelona after being red carded.

MLC Vs BAR Dream11 Picks
Our Dream 11 side will begin with the selection of Pepe Raina from the home side. The goal-keeper has pulled off a string of saves this season for the side and given the absolute carnage which will be unleashed on him, he is set to rope in some solid points.
The second most languid and absurd attacking team in the league this season, Mallorca have managed to score on just 22 occasions in 27 ties. However, that was far from what shifted us towards indulging in a trio from Barcelona.
What really alluded us towards the three defenders from the side is the way in which they are going to control proceedings today. The majority of the ball will stay with them, leaving the home side with few chances to string together attacking plays.
It makes the likelihood of a cleansheet for Barcelona extremely high, one which will see us induct Gerard Pique, Jordi Alaba and Samuel Umtiti from the side.
His 5 goals this season have been pivotal to in Mallorca’s revival this season. More importantly, Daniel Rodriguez came up with those numbers at a time when Barcelona had ended up stealing their top scorer, Braithwaite from them in January.
We are also indulging in the services of Idrissu Baba and Takefusa Kuna, two names who are capable of making things treacherous for a Barcelona defence known to crumble under vicious attacks. Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick for us from the home side with us opting for Frenkie de Jong owing to the manner in which he’s settled down at the club in only his first season.
Torching their way to the 63 goals this season, all of Barcelona’s consummate success has been a direct result of their electric attacking component this season. And the leading the side’s scoring ranks has been Lionel Messi with the 19 goals and 12 assists to make him the first pick from the side.
At second place is the side’s second top scorer, striker Suarez who has the 11 goals and 7 assists with Antoine Griezmann completing the trio with his 8 goals and 4 assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With his 19 goals, we’ll be opting for Messi as our side’s captain while Suarez is the vice-captain.
