BAR vs ATL Dream11 team tips for La Liga 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suárez returns to Camp Nou with fans in attendance for the first time since leaving Barcelona. While the 35-year-old Uruguayan footballer has not been at his prolific best this season, he has netted seven La Liga goals already and will look to score against his former club on Sunday. Suárez will be a worthy fantasy pick for this clash.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Yannick Carrasco has been one of the standout players in La Liga this season. The Belgium international has been in impressive form for Atletico Madrid, providing five assists along with his two goals. Carrasco will once again play an important role against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Among the defenders, one must pick Ronald Araujo in your fantasy football team for this massive encounter. The FC Barcelona defender has been rock solid at the back, forming a formidable partnership with Gerard Pique. Araujo will be a great addition to the fantasy team against Atletico.
Between the sticks, fantasy players should draft in FC Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen instead of out-of-form Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid. Marc-Andre ter Stegen has already made 33 saves in 19 matches and will need to be at his very best against the likes of Luis Suárez, João Félix and Yannick Carrasco.
BAR vs ATL probable playing XI
BAR playing XI (probable): Marc-Andre ter Stegen (goalkeeper); Dani Alves, Ronald Araujo, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba; Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets (captain), Pedri; Adama Traore, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres
ATL playing XI (probable): Jan Oblak (goalkeeper); Šime Vrsaljko, José María Giménez, Mario Hermoso, Renan Lodi; Yannick Carrasco, Rodrigo De Paul, Koke, Thomas Lemar; Luis Suárez, João Félix
