ATH vs BAR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The Blaugranas would hate themselves and also Gerard Pique for what he did in the last game. FC Barcelona lost their midweek game to a team who is struggling to stay above relegation zone and would come into this game hoping that they were not handed the same fate at home, this time as well. There were some rotation in the squad by Ernesto Valverde and that changes didn’t pay off. Thomas Vermaelen started in the right back position which was a complete surprise to both the fans and opponents. However, this is only the second league game defeat for FC Barcelona under Valverde so there is still time before they are discarded off in this game. It was a terrible night for the La Liga giants as FC Barcelona lost to Leganes CD, a few hours later Real Madrid got thrashed by a blistering Sevilla FC which both these giants started as favourites. However, that defeat put things on balance as FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are sharing the same points on the table. The hosts will start as favourites undoubtedly no matter how they are performing because they always come back owing to the magical left foot of Lionel Messi who seems to have taken the burden of carrying the team home everywhere. This game would not be much different since FC Barcelona would come into this game looking to tear down the wall of defence of their visitors.
Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, would be also coming into this game with battered spirits and morale after losing to Villarreal CF 3-0. It was terrible night for The Basque as their young keeper Unai Simon looked lost in front of the goal given the burden he had to shoulder on the absence of the club’s top three goalies on a regular basis. However, they would gain confidence from their draws with Real Betis and Real Madrid before their defeat to Villarreal CF. They have earned 6 points from the five games they have played in this season and they would be happy to settle for a draw if not beaten by the hosts.
