ARS vs RM Dream11 Team: Real Madrid look to comeback from their defeat against Bayern Munich while Arsenal look to wrap up their tournament with another win
For a club which is going through so much turmoil outside the footfall pitch, Arsenal’s preseason results have for extremely impressive viewing. The Premier League side haven’t let the bickering among supporters and owners in relation to transfers affect their form, recording impressive wins on the bounce in the International Champions Cup.
Defeating Bayern Munich with a late goal from Nketiah, Arsenal followed it up with an equally impressive showing against Fiorentina despite most of their playing 11 not starting the match. And the side will be looking to further build on the platform imbedded in the previous two encounters against what is arguably their toughest opposition as they face off against Real Madrid today.
Playing in their final encounter of the preseason tournament, expect Arsenal to rope back their main playing 11 for this match as Unai Emery looks to get an insight into his preferred 11 for one final time today. On the other hand, for Real Madrid who are playing only their second preseason match, the agenda for Zinedine Zidane would be to comeback from a harrowing 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich.
Rolling out a slew of their recent worldclass signings, Real Madrid massively underachieved despite the perusal of star performers at their disposal. It is clear that this side is far from the finished product, one that still needs plenty of work to be done on it before the side can go onto once again find themselves in the echelons of world football.
Despite Arsenal being clearly the inferior outfit when it comes to the players imbedded in the either side, the side are clearly the quicker, sharper and brighter team when it comes to both these sides. Their preparations for the upcoming Premier League are well underway with club having already played a slew of matches, successfully emerging as winners in all of them.
Real Madrid on the other hand will be looking to use this encounter as yet another fixture to test out players and get a clearer understanding of which position is best suited to which player. Despite them losing to Bayern Munich in the previous match, we are going to go ahead with them as winners for this one given the number of match winners the side have at their disposal.
Goal-Keeper for ARS vs RM Dream11
Arsenal’s Bernd Leno is our pick over here given the fact that Real Madrid should be a more ell functioning attacking force today. With Arsenal’s defence far from well disciplined, Leno will be called upon several times to come up with crucial saves to keep his side in the match.
Defenders for ARS vs RM Dream11
With a preseason match bringing with it the possibility of no player being ascertained of playing the full 90 minutes, we are going in with the defenders most inclined to finding themselves contribute in the side’s attacking soirees.
This sees us go ahead with Ainsley Maitland Niles from Arsenal while from Real Madrid we have rightback Dani Carvajal and centreback Sergio Ramos come in. In Ramos, Madrid have their highest scoring goal-keeper and given how Arsenal fail to keep out the corners and free-kicks, he could easily find himself get a headed goal today.
Midfielders for ARS vs RM Dream11
Our most heavily packed segment, the pool of outstanding performers to choose from here left us overwhelmed. The first player who caught our eye in particular was Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard with the left-winger having always loved playing against Arsenal in his time in the PL with Chelsea.
Hazard had singlehandedly trounced Arsenal on several occasions with the side one of his most preferred opponent and we see him coming up with atleast a goal today as well as he looks to impress his new side. We are pairing him up with Luka Modric and Isco from the side, while from Arsenal we have the lone selection of Joe Willock.
Strikers for ARS vs RM Dream11
While it was all Real Madrid in the previous segment, this one threw our way some stellar performers from Arsenal. It was a tricky proposition to pick out two players from the side here but we have gone ahead with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Edie Nketiah. Nketiah has managed to score in every preseason match and expect him to start this one as well.
From Real Madrid we have gone with new signing Rodrygo Goes after his free-kick in the closing minutes against Bayern Munich became the only goal his side managed on the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Eden Hazard has been selected to be our captain for this match while we have gone ahead with Aubameyang as the vice-captain.

Leno, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Willock, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Özil, Aubameyang, Nketiah
Dream 11 Advice: With this being a preseason match, expect both the sides to play different line-ups on either side of the half. With teams looking to try out their best possible 11 and formations during these encounters, no player should play the full 90 minutes and our picks are based off players who are expected to contribute the most during their time on the pitch.
