Since then, they convincingly beat Athletic Bilbao 4-0 to clinch the Copa Del Rey.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Lionel Messi – Another stunning performance from Messi saw him score 2 goals as Barcelona won the Copa Del Rey. He will now look to add to his tally of 23 goals and 8 assists in the La Liga. Messi is a living legend of the game and Getafe will have to do very well to stop him.

Antoine Griezmann – Even Griezmann found himself on the scoresheet in the Copa Del Rey final and has 8 goals and 6 assists in La Liga this season. He has created 38 chances while maintaining a pass accuracy of 87%. The Frenchman seems to have finally found his rhythm at Barcelona and his partnership with Messi will be very difficult to stop.

Differential Pick

Frenkie de Jong – Frenkie de Jong has been a very crucial part of Barcelona’s side since signing from Ajax Amsterdam. He plays a facilitator role in midfield and has equal contributions on either side of the pitch. De Jong is also entering this game on the back of one of his best performances in a Barca shirt wherein he bagged a goal and 2 assists in the finals. The Dutchman has completed 46 successful dribbles at an 87% completion rate while maintaining an incredible pass accuracy of 92%.

BAR vs GEF Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Ter Stegen
Defenders – Alba, Dest, Lenglet
Midfielders – Maksimovic, Alena, de Jong, Cucurella
Forwards – Messi (C), Griezmann (VC), Mata

Likely Winner:

Barcelona goes into this game in 4th place, although they have 2 games in hand over their rivals. A win against Getafe can take them to 3rd place while a win in their 32nd match of the season will put them right on top of the table. As for Getafe, they are still 4 points from safety and the question is if they can recreate their showing against Real Madrid. However, the odds are stacked against them as Gerard Pique’s return has solidified the defence once more, as Busquets, de Jong and Pedri form an astute central midfield combination. The BAR vs GEF Today Match Prediction should be an easy win for the Cules.
