CAR vs LU Dream11 Picks
Cardiff City’s Alex Smithies will become the first name to be instilled in our Dream 11 slot for today’s impending encounter. The shot stopper is going to come across an onslaught today, one which should see him come out with a solid basketful of save points.
Although we have two sides who have hit the 108 goals in between them this season, we envision this being a clash where Leeds United have an extremely realistic chance of pulling off a cleansheet. The league’s fines defence, the side has emerged as a tough nut to crack with its backline hitting the rook owing to the frugal 30 goals its let in.
It’s a discourse which sees us rope in a trio of picks from the visiting team, a trivalent made up of Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas.
While the fact that Leeds United have scored the 56 goals was more than enough for us to opt for a slew of names from the side, the fact that Cardiff City have shipped in 50 made the narrative more prudent. This is a tie where Leeds United’s attacking names are going to assiduously canter their way into the attacking docket and rip a waning Cardiff City side into shreds.
With a staggering 5 goals and 7 assists this season, Jack Harrison will become the first name to be snagged from the team with four assist man Mateusz Klich being roped in alongside him. With a gargantuan 6 goals and 6 assists, Pablo Hernandez made for the ideal third selection from the side to close out our three man facet from the team.
Cardiff City on the other hand are themselves capable of perturbing Leeds United defensively today. And at the forefront of their attacking sorties will be 6 goal man Joe Ralls to make him a must have pick along with Callum Paterson.
Leeds United’s top scorer with the 13 goals, striker Patrick Bamford was never to go anywhere for us today. The home side elsewhere will also see their spearhead and leading scorer, Lee Tomlin with the 7 goals and 7 assists cajole his way into our ambit.
