We begin our side with the selection of the world’s most astounding goal-keeper. Over the years, Jan Oblak has not only grown in stature as a goal-keeper but has also taken over the reigns of safeguarding Atletico Madrid’s traditionally sound and compact backline.
They might have gone onto concede four the last time around but come today’s tie, we envision Atletico Madrid pulling off a cleansheet. Where Bayern Munich are without their pivotal attacking players, Atletico Madrid are on a sensational cleansheet spree, one which sees them having let in a meagre 2 goals in 10 matches in the La Liga.
It sees us opt for Renan Lodi and Jose Gimenez who has scored on the one occasion from the side. Elsewhere, Bayern Munich will see a trio of picks represent the club with the side having been breached on just four occasions in four matches in the Champions League.
Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez and David Alaba will be inducted into our setup from Bayern Munich for the impending clash.
Having made his mark as a player in the Champions League initially Marcos Llorente has once again been impeccable in the tournament for the side. He’s scored the one goal to see him find a place in our team alongside Yannick Carrasco.
Leroy Sane will be our pick from the German club owing to the four goals he’s scored for the side in the Bundesliga.
Thomas Muller is yet to provide a substantial contribution in attack but this could be just the ideal match for him to break that rut as he’s asked to spearhead his side’s attacking soirees. Atletico Madrid will see us opt for Joao Felix owing to the two goals he’s struck for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With the one goal to his name, Gimenez steps into our side as the captain while Felix is the vice-captain.
Oblak, Jose, Lucas, Pavard, Lodi, Alaba, Llorente, Yannick, Sane, Felix, Thomas
