Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: FC Barcelona v. Leganes Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Barcelona currently sit at the top of the standings with 61 points and are coming off a commanding 4-0 win at Mallorca. It was their fourth win in their last five games, and that result also allowed them to maintain their two-point edge over Real Madrid. They own a near-perfect record at home (W13, D1, L0) and have averaged 3.2 goals per game while playing at their venue. They will now face a Leganes side that has been struggling in recent games, winning just once on the road during the current season. For what is worth, Los Pepineros own a W1, D2, L2 record in their previous five matches and, if the season ended today, they would be relegated.

Top Picks

Lionel Messi, Barcelona: Who else but Messi? The Argentina international couldn't dominate as many believed he would against Mallorca, but he still ended with one goal and one assist. He is a must-start player, as well as strong captaincy pick, every time he is expected to play.

Arturo Vidal, Barcelona: It's hard to trust Vidal on a weekly basis because he doesn't always start, but he could be a strong play based on what he did against Mallorca – he needed just two minutes to score the opening goal and was a constant force moving from behind. Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Martin Braithwaite could also be good secondary choices.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Lionel Messi
  2. Arturo Vidal
  3. Antoine Griezmann
  4. Marc-Andre ter Stegen
