VIL vs BAR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Invigorated Villareal set to make life a travesty for.
The season looks to have finally covered itself in dust for Barcelona this season. With two draws on the bounce with the most recent one being a 2-2 shut down by Atletico Madrid, the club is currently four points behind Real Madrid, a deficit which looks too large a one to erase.
Although the slump in form is a sudden one, a predicament not many had envisaged when La Liga had restarted, the signs of the team crumbling were evident all season long. For a couple of years now, Barcelona has ended up as a toxic and unsavoury club to ply your trade in, a side which has seen the highhandedness and crackdown of a couple of players lead to the club’s downtick.
There last two deadlocks have been a testament to those issues with there being no cohesion on the pitch as tempers flare up consistently with players refusing to pass to each other. It’s a side Villareal will be rubbing their hands when they step out to take on, a team Villareal will be quietly confident of salvaging atleast the one point as they look to take their unbeaten run to six successive matches.
Registering their second win on the bounce and fourth overall in five ties as they defeated Real Betis 2-0 the last time around, Villareal’s rampant form has seen them make massive strides to climb all the way into 5th spot. The club has a very realistic chance of breaking into the top 4, a prize which is set to spur them on when they come across Barcelona.
We envision them one curtailing in a draw with neither side being able to do enough to hit the decisive goal on the day.

VIL Vs BAR Dream11 Picks
Sergio Asenjo has only gone from strength to strength since La Liga has returned. The goal-keeper has kept two cleansheets on the spin to take his tally to 4 in the last five clashes, showings which have seen his side become such a formidable opposition over the course of the last two weeks.
Although Barcelona have gone onto ship goals in their last two encounters, the fact that they had kept four cleansheets on the spin prior to that isn’t disguised by their recent predicaments. This is a team still very much capable of shutting down opponents, a team we are going to opt for a trivalent in from.
Along with the defensive side of the game, the trio of Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique and Charles Lenglet is all capable of making its presence in the attacking component for the side as well to make them our picks. Elsewhere, Raul Albiol is snagged by us from the home side, a player whose tenacity and guile has given teams a hard time when coming across the staunch figure.
Midfielder Santo Cazorla has been Villareal’s most consistent and dependable name this season. Even when the team wasn’t faring so well, his 8 goals and 8 assists saw him pluck out results for the side out of nothing, a player we just couldn’t’ do without for the encounter.
We are partnering him up with CDM Andre Zambo Anguissa, a player whose innate ability to herald his way tackles and blocks has left side’s in a quandary when up against him. Elsewhere, his ability to both shun attacks and traverse the ball from defence to attack sees us opt for Arturo Vidal from Barcelona.
The fulcrum of the home side’s attack with the 15 goals and 4 assists, Gerard Moreno was always going to be a must have pick for us. Elsewhere, Barcelona have their leading scorer, Lionel Messi made an advent into our side owing to his 22 goals and 14 assists with Luis Suarez coming in alongside him courtesy of his 13 goals and 8 assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 36 goal contributions, Messi was always going to captain our side with Cazorla easing his way into the vice-captain slot.
