Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: FC Barcelona v. Bayern Munich Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

FC Barcelona are in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after dispatching Napoli in the Round of 16, and they also easily topped Group F with 14 points. However, Los Blaugranas never looked like a convincing side and that notion was also on display at the domestic level, where they couldn't win neither La Liga nor Copa del Rey. Things were the complete opposite for Bayern Munich, as Die Roten steamrolled past their opponents in both Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. Their Champions League form has been up to the same standard with Bayern topping their group with 18 points out of six matches and, as if that wasn't enough, they also defeated Chelsea in the Round of 16 by a 7-1 aggregate score.

Top Picks

Lionel Messi, FC Barcelona: Barcelona might be underdogs, but that shouldn't have an impact on Messi's potential captaincy berth. The Argentina international is the most decisive player in the world and tends to become a better player in decisive instances when he has to carry his team. Friday's game is one of those matches, so he might be in line for an excellent performance against a Bayern side he has already eliminated in the past.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich: Lewandowski is the current top scorer in Champions League with 13 goals in only seven matches and is widely recognized as one of the most accomplished strikers in the world. If Bayern want to move into the semi-finals in what's arguably the toughest opponent they'll face in the competition so far, then the Poland international will have to be at his best in front of goal.

Captain Options

  1. Lionel Messi
  2. Robert Lewandowski
  3. Serge Gnabry
  4. Luis Suarez
