BAR vs VAL Dream11 Match Prediction

BAR vs VAL Dream11: Barcelona entertain Valencia Basket in the Copa del Rey quarter-final at Palau Blaugrana on Thursday night (IST). Barca are the team to beat in this competition, for they have been playing at a very high level all season. They are leading the Liga ACB and hold a one-game advantage over second-placed Real Madrid. They are alive and kicking in the EuroLeague as well, currently enjoying the view from the 3rd place. They should find no problem in qualifying for the playoffs.
That said, Valencia Basket won't be an easy fixture for the Catalan giants by any stretch of the imagination, for the visitors have exceeded the expectations this season, and have recorded some signature wins in Europe.


Head-to-head:

Barcelona won all three meetings against Valencia this season, two in EuroLeague and one in Liga ACB.
