Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: FC Barcelona v. Atletico Madrid Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are two of La Liga's best teams, though they seem to be in different echelons this season. While Los Blaugranas are locked in a two-team race with Real Madrid for the title, Los Colchoneros are in third and seem to be settling with a 2020-21 UEFA Champions League berth. The recent results, however, do not favor Barcelona. Even though they are currently riding a 19-game undefeated streak in league play against Atletico (W14, D5), they are also coming off a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo that diminished their title chances greatly. Atletico, on the other hand, arrive into this game on a four-game winning streak in league play.
