Fantasy Team Picks
Jan Oblak needed little introduction with the La Liga outfit’s shot stopper largely considered as the best shot stopper in the world currently.
Although Atletico Madrid have waned in form off late, their current slump doesn’t take away from their defensive form this season. The side is the La Liga’s most sublime defensive unit, a club which was reeling in shut downs at will till a month back.
It sees us opt for Renan Lodi and Stefan Savic for the day’s clash from the club. Elsewhere, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta’s ability to maraud down the park sees the two be embedded in our framework from Chelsea.
At a time when his side has floundered, Marcos Llorente has continued to remain pristine as ever. He scored at the weekend for his side as well to see him be accompanied by Saul Niguez.
Mason Mount scored Chelsea’s penalty at the weekend, one which saw the side salvage a draw from the encounter. He’s joined by Jorginho who has the two penalties to his name in the last month.
Having accrued three goals in the Champions League till now, striker Timo Werner is our pick from the visiting side. Atletico Madrid will meanwhile see their top scorer in the La Liga, striker Luis Suarez make a foray into our fray.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His side’s leading scorer, Suarez is our captain while Timo is the vice-captain.
Oblak, Cesar, Alonso, Lodi, Savic, Llorente, Mount, Jorginho, Saul, Luis, Timo
