FRA vs CHI Dream11 Prediction Team: Must win encounter for France sees the hosts take on a tricky Chile unit
France Vs Chile FIH Series Final Best Dream 11 Team
Heading into the showpiece tournament as the home side and the second highest ranked country with a world ranking of 15 in their artillery, France were touted to be the side to beat. And they’ve been a testament to the high status accorded to them up till now, playing a cautious game against Korea while obliterating Ukraine 9-1 in their second encounter.
Commencing just after the Indian leg of the FIH Series Final, the France edition of the tournament looks to add more teams to the Japan 2020 Olympic Qualifiers. With India and South Africa having qualified from the recently concluded tournament, from Pool B, all the eyes are on France to go all the way to the final.
In Chile though, France know they have an opponent more than capable of throwing a surprise their way. They managed to draw it out against Ukraine before managing to score one past Korea, a result which leaves them in the reckoning for a spot in the quarter-final. With Korea expected to dole out a regulation win against an agonising Ukraine side, France know they can’t afford to slip up on the night if they are to directly make it through to the top 4.
Given the ramifications of this match, expect France to be at their exquisite and scrumptious best when these two sides face off on Tuesday night. It’s been their attacking facet which has seen them subsequently make it the echelon of the group and against a Chile side prone to leak goals, France will be licking their lips.
In what should be an attacking feast from the hosts, one that leaves us mesmerised, we say them easily outscoring Chile here. They should get their second win of the tournament in the bag and the goal difference should see them just about outdo Korea for a place in the semi-finals.
Goal-Keeper for FRA vs CHI Dream11
We have decided to get in the shot stopper from Chile here. Their man between the sticks has been one of the finest performers for the side, showing immense acumen in keeping the ball out of his goal. France are going to be relentless in peppering him with shots and Henriquez will get solid points there.
Defenders for FRA vs CHI Dream11
France and Chile both are sides guilty of letting the ball slip into their goal under the slightest bit of onslaught. This should be an open, fast paced and attacking extravaganza of a match and given that we are opting for only the minimum three needed defenders.
It’s going to be both the goals corers from the French side who come into our Dream 11 side. Topping France’s goal scoring charts with his two successfully penalty corner routines is Charlet and the 10.5 credit man fully justifies his inclusion. Giving him company with the one goal is Bellenegr and against a Chile side prone to committing fouls in abundance we expect both these to get atleast the one goal in between them.
From Chile we have decided to pick up only the one player in Nicholas Renz.
Midfielders for FRA vs CHI Dream11
It going to be a reasonably close and feisty match, given that both the side’s play a similar brand of hockey. Akin to each other’s style of play, they love going on marauding attacks, losing cohesion at the back and exposing the empty spaces at the back.
It’s this perspective proposition that makes the midfield pivot’s role all the more crucial in this fixture. Both the sides will need to dole out a formation which revitalises the centre of the park for them, seeing them offer the much needed resilience needed in the midfield section,
Given that, we have opted for the four midfielders from both the outfits. Coming in from France for us are going to be Genestet and Masson wile Chile will be represented by Richter and Renz for today.
Forwards for FRA vs CHI Dream11
We’ve highly built up both these unit’s attacks and rightfully so. The goal scoring threat is colossal from both the sides and we are bound to be indulged in a myriad attacking gameplan from both the units.
Given that France are bound to get the better of Chile in the attacking facet, it’s a duo coming in from the home side. Gaspard and Branicki are the two men for us from their team while Chile see the lone pick of Rodriguez.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to hand over this crucial responsibility to both the French players here. Their striker Gaspard is our captain while Charlet is being made the vice-captain.
