Top Goal Scorer

We begin our set of picks with the selection of Manuel Neuer from Bayern Munich. Have been asked to stay back in Germany for the side’s visit to Spain, the goal-keeper is relatively well rested and will be looking to parry away everything RB Leipzig send down his way.
Angelino has turned into a real prized asset for RB Leipzig ever since his transfer from the Premier League. The club’s top scorer with four goals, he’s also their leading scorer in the Champions League currently. CB Ibrahima Konate links up owing to his ability to rifle through the tackles and blocks.
Bayern Munich will meanwhile see the duo of Lucas Hernandez and David Alaba be inducted in our team. The imperious defenders have turned attacks white as a sheet with the two refusing to get out of the hair of the opposition’s attacking plays.
Four goal man Serge Gnabry and midfielder Leon Goretzka will form the duo from Bayern Munich for today’s outing. The opposition will see us opt for the guile filled duo of the indomitable Christopher Nkunku and Kevin Kampl, two players who are capable of beating defenders to work their way past backlines with seamless ease.
Any match involving Bayern Munich means striker Robert Lewandowksi, the club’s top scorer is an instant pick for us. Thomas Muller who has the four goals and six assists will also retain his place in our team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 12 goals for Robert will make him our captain while Thomas is the vice-captain.
Manuel, Angelino, Lucas, Alaba, Konate, Serge, Leon, Nkunku, Kampl, Robert, Muller
