BAR vs VAL Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Barcelona vs Valencia Laliga Live Score October 18


BAR vs VAL Dream11: Barcelona has had a poor start to the season in both the league and Europe, as well as an off-the-field problem. Barca is seriously concerned about finishing in the top four this season, let alone reaching the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds, due to the well-documented concerns. They will now face Jose Bordalas’ Valencia, who are a strong and intense team. Bordalas, who led Getafe to 18th, 20th, and 20th place in the fair play table in each of his three full seasons in charge in La Liga, is not the type of opponent you want to face when you’re feeling vulnerable. The visitors’ determined and aggressive style of play, as well as Barcelona’s lack of coordination in attack, this matchup should be tight and low-scoring.

Date: October 18, Monday
Kick-Off: 12:30 AM (IST)
Venue: Camp-Nou, Barcelona

Laliga Table:

In Laliga this season, Barcelona are at 9th spot in the points table, while, Valencia sit in the 8th place.

MID: Sergi Roberto, Frenkie de Jong, Daniel Wass
FOR: Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati, Goncalo Guedes

Likely Winner:

  • Ronald Koeman is under fire after a 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid before the international break. He needs a win tonight. In all competitions, Barcelona has only won one of their last six matches.
  • Valencia have not won in four games following a promising start to the season, however they have drew the last two after back-to-back defeats. Only one of Los Che’s last 14 league road games has resulted in a victory.
  • Barcelona’s loss of Ronald Araujo is a significant blow, and fans may be treated to a goal-fest at Camp Nou on Sunday night as a result.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a draw in this clash is 1.98.
