VAL vs BAR Dream11 Prediction for La Liga Live Score, Preview Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

VAL vs BAR Dream11: Valencia come into this on the back of a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to relegation threatened Alaves last weekend. Jose Bordalas’ side are now winless in their last three matches in all competitions and six in La Liga. That run of form has seen them slip into the bottom-half ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures. They now come up against a Barcelona side that have improved under Xavi Hernandez but the Catalans do have some weakness, particularly defensively. They dominated their UEFA Europa League knockout playoff tie against Napoli in midweek but were exposed a few times with their high-line. A both teams to score bet looks a good one for this one.
