BAY Vs SCH Dream11 Picks
Ralf Fahrmann is going to come across one of his sternest tests today. With Bayern Munich set to plunder his goal and pepper up shot after shot his way, the Schalke shot stopper is going to need to muster up all the strength he has to safeguard his side’s goal.
Fortuitously for the club, he’s a well endowed shot stopper, someone we envision pulling off some neat saves today.
Bayern Munich’s defensive resolve isn’t the only reason we decided to opt for a quartet from the club. Not only did the side’s defenders leave side’s distraught last term to let in the least number of goals but provided impeccable attacking support to the club as well.
One such player was fullback Alphonso Davies. The leftback had a pathbreaking season, one where his attacking penchant saw him make real inroads in his side’s playing 11.
Counterpart Benjamin Pavard was more than willing to maraud his way into the side’s attacks as well to make him the second pick from the side. Joshua Kimmich joins up with his affinity to pop up with the goals and assists in his midfield role making him a must have pick for today.
CB David Alaba will complete the four man docket from the club with a cleansheet extremely likely for Bayern Munich today.
The 12 goals and 11 assists Serge Gnabry ended up with last season saw him emerge as the second top scorer for the club to make him our first pick from Bayern Munich for the contest. Slotting in next to him is Muller who had the most number of assists in the league at 21, one he paired up with his 8 goals.
Schalke on the other hand see us opt for a duo as well. The side knows that the only way it can save itself from an embarrassing scoreline today is if these two names are at the pinnacle of their attacking game.
We begin with the side’s top scorer the last time around, Suat Serdar. His seven goals make him an instant pick for us along with Amine Harit, someone capable of using his searing speed to make like cumbersome for Bayern Munich.
Robert Lewandowski endured the campaign of his life the last time around. He ended up as the top scorer of all the three trophies he was a part of, a season which saw him quench his insatiable thirst for goals.
Elsewhere, the versatile Mark Uth will be our pick from Schalke for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 34 goals and 7 assists he had last season will see us make Robert our side’s captain while Joshua is the vice-captain.
