BAY vs MIL Dream11 Team: Bayern Munich look to win their second match on the bounce when they take on new entrants AC Milan.
The last win against Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup was a much needed one for Bayern Munich following their closely contested defeat against Arsenal. Trouncing Real Madrid in the previous match as they went onto record a 3-1 win on the night, Bayern Munich will be looking to build on that foundation when they take on AC Milan today.
For Bayern Munich it was not only the result but the manner in which it came about that massively impressed. With goals from Corentin Tolisso, Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry, Bayern Munich not only dominated in the attacking facet but also negated an exemplary Real Madrid attacking unit, one filled with some of the biggest names in the fraternity.
Now up against AC Milan, the gameplan will be simple for Bayern Munich. They know they are up against a side who not only are way below them in the playing field but will also be making an advent for the first time in the tournament, an outfit that will come out tentatively today as they go in search of regaining full match fitness.
The main issue of contention which continues to remain for Bayern Munich are the leftwing and right wing options with the club unable to rope in new players in the positions. With Manchester City sticking to their asking price of 100 million for Leroy Sane and Callum Hudson Odoi having signed a new five year contract at Chelsea, the options are running out for Bayern Munich who are in dire need of reinforcing these two spots.
Elsewhere for AC Milan, the preseason is all about addressing the glaring holes which perturbed the side during their previous campaign. Ending in 5th place in Serie A, Marco Giampaolowas appointed as the new manager and would be looking to imbed his gameplan in these encounters ahead of the upcoming new season of the Italian league.
Bayern Munich should go onto win this one easily as well. Not only are they more acclimatised to the tournament but have clear match winners in their squad, players who know what it takes to succeed at the highest level. Expect them to play out a majority of their main playing 11 in this one while AC Milan persistently chop as they look to give their entire contingent playing time.
Bayern Munich have never managed to defeat AC Milan till date in the two matches the two sides have squared off in but they should finally manage to get their first win of the clash today.
Goal-Keeper for BAY vs MIL Dream11
Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer is our pick for this one after Bayern Munich’s second choice goal-keeper Ulreich was handed a red card against Arsenal.
Defenders for BAY vs MIL Dream11
The one area where AC Milan are going to match Bayern Munich equally is in the attacking department with striker Krzysztof Piatek and a couple of other stellar names bound to rile up a Bayern Munich defence which has failed to keep a single cleansheet up till now.
And it’s this narrative which sees us opt for just the three defenders as we turn to the more attackingly inclined options over. This sees us go ahead with Niklas Sule and Joshua Kimmich from Bayern Munich with the two bound to trouble an AC Milan defence which hasn’t impressed recently.
Meanwhile from AC Milan we have gone ahead with only Alesso Roagnoli as we wrap up this segment with only the three requisite picks from the side.
Midfielders for BAY vs MIL Dream11
Someone who is bound to play in the wide areas up the pitch for now for Bayern Munich is Serge Gnabry along with Kinsley Coman and after his good showing against Real Madrid and Arsenal, we have gone ahead with Gnabry for this match. With a goal against Real Madrid, Corentin Tolisso comes into our playing 11 as well for this one.
Elsewhere it’s a two man partnership from AC Milan as well with Gianco Bonaventura and Hakan Calhanoglu becoming our picks over here. The two will be quissential to their side’s success up the pitch and if AC Milan are to rile up Bayern Munich’s defence, they’ll need this duo to deliver a pristine performance in unison.
Strikers for BAY vs MIL Dream11
The two strikers come in from Bayern Munich for us with Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller becoming our picks. AC Milan are a paper thin defensive setup, one which has struggled massively to keep away attacks and given the gaps in their backline, these two should easily score.
Krzysztof Piatek from AC Milan completes our Dream 11 side for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are going in with Piatek as our captain for this match with the striker expected to get good playing time while Lewandowski is our vice-captain.
Dream 11 Advice:
With this being a preseason match, expect both the sides to play different line-ups on either side of the half. With teams looking to try out their best possible 11 and formations during these encounters, no player should play the full 90 minutes and our picks are based off players who are expected to contribute the most during their time on the pitch.
