VLD Vs BAR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Barcelona’s qualms continue with the side seeing its two match winning spree being curtailed.
Up against a regressing Valencia outfit, one which was left without a win in the league in its last five matches, Barcelona were widely touted to walk away with the three points. Where Valencia were making a meal of their fixtures, Barcelona were slowly rediscovering themselves as a setup to steadily climb up the ladder of the points tally.
However, the 2-2 draw Barcelona had to satisfy themselves with on the day proved that the club still has a long and bumpy road to scour before it can seriously launch a bid for the title. The result saw them remain on the cusp of the top 4, a barrier the side will be eager to break at the earliest plausible.
Up against relegation slumped Real Valladolid, Barcelona will be fancying their chances of reverting to winning ways as the side graces the land of the league once again after only a couple of days.

They were torrid defensively against Valencia but that display doesn’t faze us from opting for a trio of picks from Barcelona. If there’s any club capable of a cleansheet today, its them to see Jordi Alba, Sergino Dest and Ronald Araujo be our picks from the team.
Injuries have resulted in Pedro Gonzalez get escalated minutes out for Barcelona. And he’s made the most of them as well with him delivering one of his best performances this season against Valencia.
Frenkie de Jong is gradually reverting to his best and once again taking over control of the midfield for Barcelona. The opposition will meanwhile see us make Oscar Plano the first pick from the side owing to his ability to layup the ball for his counterparts, a skill set that has helped him to the four assists.
Fabian Orellana’s two goals see him accompany Plano.
Scoring for his side the last time around, Lionel Messi as ever finds a place in our team for the day. We are going to be partnering him up with Antoine Griezmann who has the three goals and two assists.
Shon Weissman makes a foray into our side from the other side courtesy of his two goals.
