ATL vs RM Dream11 Picks
The best goal-keeper in the world and widely regarded in the echelons of goal-keepers across the footballing fraternity, Atletcio Madrid’s Jan Oblak has been an understated shot stopper for way too long now. He’s an incredible pair of gloves, a name who has time and time again pulled off articulate saves to singlehandedly rescue matches for his side.
What adds to his tenacity is his ability to keep parrying the ball away consistency, becoming a bankable and dependable name, someone we envisage putting in a flawless display today as well.
With Real Madrid having managed to overhaul their defensive setup off late and keep two cleansheets in the previous couple of matches and Atletcio Madrid known for their defensive gameplan in such matches, this could easily be a low scoring affair. It sees us heavily pack our side with the defensive options, going for four names over here, the two apiece coming in from either side for us.
From Real Madrid we have opted for Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal whilst from the other side we have gone in with Stefan Savic and Santiago Arias, a CB and fullback pairing from either side.
Zidane was quick to slate Gareth Bale at the beginning of the season, making it clear he wanted to sell him but with a move not being fathomed and Bale being one of the only players performing in the attacking facet, Zidane has been quick to retract his actions. Gale has become a regular feature of the side now, both scoring and assisting for them to be picked up by us.
Eden Hazard comes in as well along with Federico Valverde while form Atletcio we have chosen Thomas Partey and Vitolo who has scored two goals till now for this match.
The side’s top scorer till now, Real Madrid’s lone striker up the park comes in to wrap up our Dream 11 for today’s impending clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Hazard is chosen as our captain for this math while we are making Bale our vice-captain.
