Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Lionel Messi – With 4 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games, Messi will easily be the biggest threat that Barca will offer. He has created 75 chances, pulled off 81 shots on target and completed an incredible 126 successful dribbles at a 62% success rate. Messi has 25 goals and 9 assists this season.

Antoine Griezmann – Antoine Griezmann has finally found his feet at the club with 11 goals and 6 assists so far. He has scored 4 goals in his last 3 games including both of Barca’s goals against Villarreal. Griezmann has created 41 chances as well completing 73% of his attempted dribbles.

Differential Pick

Roberto Soldado – The Spanish international has scored 9 goals in 15 starts this season and has a great shot conversion rate of 75%. Soldado has been in great form as well with 3 goals in his last 2 games, including a brace against Eibar and a late penalty against Sevilla. Soldado will look to get in behind the Barca defence and catch them lacking. Soldado will feed off of the crosses and through balls into the Barcelona 18-yard box.

BAR vs GRD Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Ter Stegen
Defenders – Alba, Roberto, Lenglet
Midfielders – de Jong, Herrera, Machis, Brice-Eteki
Forwards – Messi (C), Griezmann (VC), Soldado

Likely Winner:

Putting this down as a must-win for Barcelona is an understatement. After a season of trailing in second and third place, the Blaugrana finally have a chance to go top of the table. Barcelona also has a good record against Granada having beaten them twice this season already, scoring 9 times in the process. The BAR vs GRD Today Match Prediction is a pivotal one in the season for Barca while there isn’t a lot at stake for the away side. Granada would love to manage a late push for the Europa League spots but it is unlikely. This should be a routine win for Barcelona.
