DIZ Vs MCI Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Dinamo Zagreb head out fighting for a spot in the ensuing round of the tournamnet today.
With Manchester city having sealed Group C of the Champions League 2019-20 in their favour, today’s match will be all about giving the lesser played players some time out in the middle for the group leaders. With the club holding a five point lead atop of the group, one which can’t be wiped away under any circumstances, the club will be looking to rest several of its key players and use this tie as a match to try out new combinations.
It’s a narrative which is pivotal to the club not only owing due to their encounter in the showpiece tournamnet today but also given the set of encounters they have lined up in the Premier League. With Arsenal and Leicester City becoming for Manchester City who are enduring a horrid season at the moment, one which has seen them fall 14 points behind Liverpool, the club knows it needs to keep all its star performers fit for the upcoming tie at the weekend against Arsenal.
While the club has floundered massively in the Premier League, the Champions League has managed to offer them some kind of solace with the club registering the three wins and two draws from their five matches. They are not a set of results which the club will be extremely proud of though with the side struggling to register wins against opponents they were widely touted to thump, a number which is telling of how the side have wavered this campaign.
And when they take on a Dinamo Zagreb side who are currently embroiled in the clamour of making it into the ensuing round, things can easily further regress for Manchester City. Currently in third place with just the one win from five matches, the home side will be looking to catapult a hurting and depleted Manchester City side in this one and make a late surge into the proceeding stage.

DIZ Vs MCI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Having shipped in the nine goals till now, if Dinamo Zagreb are to keep their ambitions intact of stunning Manchester City over here, they’ll be requiring their shot stopper to pull off a slew of saves. Although Dominik Livakovic looks likely to pull off a cleansheet on the day, he’s someone capable of garnering in a slew of save points to see us bring him in over here.
DIZ Vs MCI Dream11 Defenders
Although this has been a horrendous season for Manchester City in the backline, the side have managed to keep things tight and compact in the Champions League. They have let in just the three goals till now, making for a stout and level headed defensive unit and if any side are going to be able to pull off a cleansheet in this encounter, it’s going to be them.
It sees us move in with an entire trio of picks from the side with us opting for both the fullbacks in the form of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Jao Cancelo along with Eric Garcia who is set to play his first match for the side today.

He will be accompanied by Rodrio Hernandez for the day while from the home side we have gone in with the diminutive and indomitable partnership of Dani Olmo and Arijan Ademi.

His team’s top scorer with the five goals in the tournamnet till now, Mislav Orsic has taken the onus of coming up with outstanding match winning displays for his side.
