GAL vs BAR Dream11 prediction

It’s all to play for both teams in the second leg encounter after they failed to break the deadlock in the first leg at Camp Nou. The contrast in quality was visibly viable as Galatasaray attempted a mere three shots on goal in the first leg. 

The story at home, however, could be very different for the Turkish giants, given the exhilarating environment their fans produce. Regardless of that, though, Barcelona remain firm favourites to win the tie given that they have won each of their last three away games. On top of that, they have also scored at least two goals in all of those three outings.

GAL vs BAR Dream11 team tips for UEFA Europa League 2021-22

Top tip: Best forward

With 119 fantasy points already to his name, Barcelona's January signing Ferran Torres is a must-have player for this contest. He did fail to get on the scoresheet in the first leg, but his recent return of three goals in as many outings warrants him a place in your fantasy team.

Top tip: Best midfielder

Making it to the Dream Team in each of his last three Europa League outings, Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong is an outright pick for his contest. Given the advanced role he plays under Xavi, the former Ajax midfielder could prove to be a great coup for Thursday’s encounter.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Galatasaray’s Marcos Teixeira was brilliant in the first leg, completing two interceptions and putting as many successful tackles. This resulted in the Brazilian centre half accruing 49 fantasy points. Come Thursday, expect him to put on a similar show.

For a goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen should ideally prove to be a profitable investment as the German is more likely to keep a clean sheet.

GAL vs BAR probable playing XI

GAL playing XI (probable): Inaki Pena (goalkeeper); Omar Elabdellaoui, Marcos Teixeira, Victor Nelsson, Patrick Van Aanholt; Erick Pulgar; Berkan Kutlu; Olimpiu Morutan, Ryan Babel, Kerem Akturkoglu; Mostafa Mohamed
