AVL Vs WOL Dream 11 Prediction: A resilient and gritty Wolverhampton side continues to keep itself in the clamour for a spot in the top 4.
Doling out clinical wins after wins, Wolverhampton has reinstated their bid for a spot in next season’s Champions League. Despite not having the biggest pool of players at their disposal, the side’s hunger for a spot in the top 4 has led their charge, a quest the side is sparing no expense in achieving this season.
Defeating Bournemouth 1-0 the last time around to muster their second straight win and fourth in five encounters, Wolverhampton took one further step towards sealing their spot in the coveted spots. Although the side still stares at a five point deficit, its an extremely attainable one if the side can emulate its current form as it ventures into the last stretch of outings in the Premier League.
Throwing open the doors of the upcoming gameweek, when Wolverhampton take on the 19th side in the league, this looks set to be another canter in the park for them. They are up against the most horrific defence, a backline which will fail to withstand the brunt of one of the most electric and progressive attacking lines in Europe.
A simple gameplan will be on show by both the sides across the 90 minutes today. Where Wolverhampton will revel in possession and line up attacking play after attacking play, the home side will try to soak in those attacks and leave everything today on their defence.
However, few sides have been able to withstand Wolverhampton’s attacking carnage and the league’s worst defence won’t fare of any better with the visiting team going onto win this tie.

Although Orjan Nyland needed some time to settle in with the shot stopper jittery in his first two ties since the league returned, his display against Newcastle United was a more reassuring one. He was the only reason the side was able to salvage a draw from that affair, showing resilience in the face of adversary.
Where the entire discourse around Wolverhampton and their consummate success has been immersed around the attacking ambit, the defence has gone around its task quietly. The side is currently the most stringent defence on form, a team which has kept four cleansheet in its last five encounter including the three on the bounce.
Adding to that discourse is the attacking penchant wingback Jonny has, one which will see him become the first pick for us today. We are pairing him alongside the gripping Roman Saiss, Conor Coady and Willy Boly, three CBs who have held fort for the side to shun sides in their attacking travails.
After a string of stellar showings, Adama Traore saw an injury halt his rise in the league, one which eventually affected his time out on the pitch for Wolverhampton. However, he’s returned to the league with a famish to once again stamp his authority, showcasing his credentials with two assists for Jimenez.
We are going to pair himself alongside one of the finest wingbacks in the league with Matt Doherty providing unstinted support to his side’s attacking travails every match. The home side on the other hand will see us opt for their top scorer with the 7 goals and 6 assists, Jack Grealish.
The three assists for Conor Hourihane see him come in as well from the side along with John McGinn, one of the most exceptional performers in a regressing Aston Villa side.
Scoring for the second match in a row, striker Raul Jimenez showed why his worth is growing with each passing gameweek. The Premier League’s leading scorer across all tournaments this season, the Wolverhampton man is truly a wordclass player, a player who has provided his side with an enigmatic brand of attacking football.

With 15 goals this season, Raul captains our side while Doherty is the vice-captain.
