BRI vs DER Dream11 : Bristol City and Derby County target their second win in the league today when the two sides clash heads against each other
Undefeated in four matches across all formats, life after Frank Lampard has gotten off to a solid start for Derby County. Despite losing their manager to Chelsea, the club have only gone onto strengthen on the foundation built in the previous campaign to get off to a pulsating start.
After finishing sixth last year and going all the way to the final as they looked to earn promotion to the Premier League, Derby County will be well aware though that achieving the unprecedented success of the previous campaign won’t be an easy task. Although they are yet to lose a match after three clashes in the Championship, the side find themselves only in eighth place after playing out two draws with the solitary win.
Up against Bristol Country, a side they are undefeated against in 11 outings, losing way back in 2017 when they were defeated 4-1, Derby County will be out looking for a second elusive win today to help propel them in the league standings. It’s the same narrative which will buoy Bristol City as well with the club placed in 11th place after winning, drawing and losing one match a piece in the early exchanges for their campaign.

BRI vs DER Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for BRI vs DER Dream11
With a cleansheet tough today, we have opted for Bristol City’s goal-keeper for this one. Although both the sides have scored four goals till now in the league, Derby County have looked more fruitful and menacing infront of the opposition’s goal and they are bound to pepper Bristol’s goal with a carnage today.
It’s bound to see Daniel Bentley be heavily involved in saves, something which bodes well for our Dream 11 side, seeing us indulge in his services.
Defenders for BRI vs DER Dream11
Our three man defence sees us opt for the attack minded defenders, player known for marauding their way up the pitch to fortuitous effect. This sees us include Derby County’s fullback and centreback with Richard Keogh and Max Lowe both coming into our side for this encounter.
The two are not only an integral part of their side’s backline but are also quissential in moving forward and helping widen the pitch, making it difficult for opponent’s to restrain their attacking moves. From Bristol City we have decided to select only the one player with the influential Tomas Kalas coming into this one.
Midfielders for BRI vs DER Dream11
He’s managed to get just the one assist till now but having been earmarked as one of the best players for his outfit, someone who is expected to achieve huge things this season, we have Kasey Palmer come into our side from Bristol City. He’s a quissential part of his side’s attacking soirees, dutifully imbedding the due processes in place and could easily find himself get a goal or assist today.
Elsewhere we have roped in an entire trivalent from Derby County with Tom Lawrence coming in after scoring twice this season, accompanied by the duo of Kieran Dowell and Tom Huddleston.
Strikers for BRI vs DER Dream11
We compensate for the attacking pricks from Bristol City, getting in the duo of Andreas Weimann and Benik Afobe. Both have intertwined their skill set pinch perfectly to emerge as a dauntless attacking duo, getting the one goal apiece in the three clashes they have contested in till now.
Two goal man, Martyn Waghorm wraps up our Dream 11 side for this encounter.
