BAR vs RM Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Real Madrid and Barcelona, one of the biggest football rivalries in the world, will meet for the third time in a fortnight, this time in La Liga at Santiago Bernabéu, on Tuesday night (IST).
Having recorded a 1-1 draw at Camp Nou, Real Madrid had the upper hand in the Copa del Rey semi-final match against Barcelona. And the way first half panned out, where not only visitors failed to create any meaningful chance, Vinicius Junior could have scored a hat-trick. But Marc Andre Ter Stegen’s brilliant goalkeeping and the failure to bury the chances undid Real Madrid in the end.
To be true, the Copa del Rey was Madrid’s most realistic chance of winning the trophy this season. But Santiago Solari’s men can still prove this notion wrong as Los Blancos are still alive in the Champions League, and are 3rd in La Liga, 9 points adrift of leaders Barcelona.
So this is Madrid’s chance to cut the gap to six points and bring the league wide open.
But even if Madrid beat Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu at the weekend, it will take some turnaround to stop the reigning champions from winning the league this season.
As Real Madrid were launching missiles after missiles at Barcelona’s goal in the first half, manager Ernesto Valverde was seen sitting on his knees on the touchline, rather helpless and concerned at the events unfolding in front of his eyes.
If you did watch that match, you must have wondered about that unseen and decisive force called luck. Barcelona did ride that to its powerful best. On the other hand, Madrid looked bereft of it, and couldn’t go past the relentlessly looking unpierceable Ter Stegen.
But the fact of the matter is that Barca scored three unanswered goals in the 2nd half and moved into the fifth consecutive Copa del Rey final at the expense of their biggest rivals. Now they are favourites to land a trophy they have been winning since 2015.
Still, the biggest worry for Valverde from that match was the incompetence of his midfield. Rakitic, Busquets and Roberto were run over by Kroos, Casemiro and Modric, while Vinicius Junior terrorized Nelson Semedo for the most part of the game.
Barcelona and the manager must buckle up if they want to win the treble this season.

BAR vs RM Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Real Madrid’s fragile backline which has conceded 30 goals in La Liga this season, and Barcelona’s attack which has racked up 100 goals in all competitions, means the hosts will find it hard to nullify the visitors.
But Barca struggled to contain Vinicius Junior in the Copa del Rey and only if he can be decisive here, Gerard Pique and Co. could be in trouble as well.
Madrid must replicate their performance on Wednesday albeit by scoring few goals. But the battering that Barca gave them could prove to be a mental hurdle and that’s why we are backing the away side to win the match.
