Dream11 Team and Analysis | FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid La Liga Dream11 Prediction 2019
Thibaut Courtois boasts of a better keeping record this season. However, Barcelona are playing at Camp Nou and with the home team playing a possession game, Ter Stegen is expected to get more of the ball. Stegen averages over 23 passes a game. What more, he also has an assist to his name!
The quick, hard-tackling Raphael Varane picks himself with his skipper and teammate Sergio Ramos, who is a much-needed presence in the backline given his experience in this fixture. Ramos also has a knack of scoring goals in high-profile games.
The pacey left-back Jordi Alba and his connection with Messi will be a highly effective one. In his career, Alba has assisted Messi on twenty occasions. An experienced Gerard Pique completes our back four.
A lot of talent here and a few tough choices to make. Busquets and De Jong are two Catalonians who make our Dream11 team for today. Busquets brings in his composure in holding midfield areas while De Jong will look to cause some trouble to the Madrid backline.
Toni Kroos gets the nod courtesy because he boasts of 68.3 passes per game with an accuracy of 93.1%. He also has two goals and two assists to his name. Luka Modric is an excellent choice considering his vast experience in the contest. He has two goals and four assists this season. However, it is important to know that he has started only six games this season.
You can also go forward with Casemiro as well, considering his crucial tackling and intercepting abilities. He averages 3.7 tackles per game apart from boasting of 2.3 interceptions. Moreover, Casemiro has a goal and an assist this season. The Brasilian will be vital in set-piece situations.
If the midfield is talented, the attack is something else. Everyone is world-class, and the choice is just based on form. Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema are our choice for a 2-man attacking option. Both the players have scored 12 goals each this season while Messi has 6 assists and Karim has 5.
