ALA vs ATL Dream11 : Regressing Alaves face a stern and dicey fixture when they take on a ruthless Atletico Madrid outfit today.
For today’s home side, the ongoing campaign of LA Liga has not quite transpired in their favour. Deportivo Alaves have managed to scrimmage together a mere three wins in ten encounters, finding themselves having strung together a mere 11 points to sit all the way in a lowly 14th place ahead of today’s impending encounter.
They and Atletcio Madrid begin proceedings in gameweek 11 of the league in a match which couldn’t have been more lopsided in nature. Where the hosts are languishing in the lower ends of the league standings, the visiting side are making a claim for top spot, a clash which looks to be a foregone result even before we get underway with proceedings here.
With both Barcelona and Real Madrid not playing at the weekend with their face off against each other postponed owing to clashes in the country, Atletcio Madrid gained ground in the clamour to challenging for the title with a clinical 2-0 win over Bilbao. The result was pivotal for them not only owing to the three points it came bearing but with it helping them snap out of a three match drawing spree, giving them momentum ahead of today’s encounter.
And when they take on Deportivo Alaves in this encounter, the side will be quietly confident of making it two straight wins against a side who were routed 4-1 by Villarreal in their previous match. The side have managed to scramble their way to two wins in their last five matches but what stands out is the three defeats they have been subjected to in the same time, something which points at the bleak and meek nature of their side.

ALA vs ATL Dream11 Team Picks
With Alaves having managed to scramble together just 8 goals in 10 encounters, this looks set to be a match where Atletcio Madrid’s typical stringent defence locks down the opponent. And when you have a goal-keeper of the calibre of Jan Oblak, its only rightful to make him the first pick in your Dream 11 side for this fixture, making us go in with the Atletcio Madrid shot stopper as the first name in our side.
Despite Atletcio Madrid suffering a spate of injuries, one which has particularly hampered their backline, the side’ depth in defence has come to the fore in these circumstances. They have conceded a paltry five goals in the league and up against a side who have offered little in the way of attacking exuberance, we had to heavily bolster up our side with defensive choices from the visiting unit.
We are getting in both their CBs in the form of Felipe Monteiro and Mario Hermoso for this one along with the more attacking inclined Renan Lodi Mario Hermoso with the fullback persistently galloping his way down the opposition’s side of the park with luscious ease. The one pick for us from the home side as well owing to the tackles and blocks he looks set to enshrine in place today, seeing us move in for Ruben Duarte for this one.
Where Deportivo Alaves have lacked in their attacking sorties, the side haven’t done any better in the defensive side of things either. The four goal they shipped in the previous match took their goals conceded tally to 13, a calamity Atletico Madrid will use in their favour to further disrupt the home side’s campaign.
It sees us move in with Vitolo, Thomas Partey and Thomas Lemar for this impending clash with the tri set to intertwine their skill set and get atleast the one goal or assist in between them today. We have a pair come in from Alaves meanwhile, going in with Manu Garcia and Aleix Vidal for this one, two players who have looked their biggest threats while moving forward till season.
John Guidetti from the home side will come in to wrap up proceedings for this impending clash with the striker bound to get an escalated role for his side in this hectic and congested schedule.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lodi comes into our side as our captain for this one while we are making Oblak the vice-captain for today.
