GAL vs RM Dream11 : Bottom placed Real Madrid face yet another disruptive encounter when they take on a tricky Galatasaray side today
The biggest exasperation for Real Madrid supporters this season was understanding why the side were not able to emulate their form of La Liga in the Champions League. Where they were undefeated in Spain, the side were yet to record a single win in Group A of the Champions League, leaving everyone confounded at their peril.
However, things became far clearer at the weekend when the side ended up losing to Real Mallorca, a 1-0 defeat which finally saw the cracks in the side widen and become too bid to cover for them. It lead to an understanding of their form in the Champions League, one which was truer to the current distress the side find themselves in, an outfit which has looked drab and bereft of ideas in the attacking facet of their game.
They had managed to scrape their way through wins in La Liga but with none of them convincing, it wasn’t long before ther dire brand of football saw them collapse. It’s a predicament which has left them in the bottom of Group A in the Champions League, drawing the one and losing the one match apiece to sit in an unprecedented spot ahead of today’s impending clash against Galatasaray.
Where the match is a mammoth occasion for Real Madrid, Galatasaray also make a foray into the match having endured the same set of results as their opponents. They just about edge Real Madrid in third place on virtue of a better goal difference and will be looking to capitalise on the paper thin quality of this Real Madrid side which has done little less than paper over the cracks till now in the marquee tournamnet.

GAL vs RM Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Real Madrid’s failure across the last two seasons in the tournamnet can perhaps be summed up perfectly by the side deciding to side Thibaut Courtois. In the 60 matches he’s played for the side, the goal-keeper has shipped in more than 80 goals, undoubtedly their worst performer, a goal-keeper who hasn’t had the basic understanding of what it needs to stop shots.
Our reason for picking him up today is due to the shots he’s going to come across, a number which should be so high in magnitude that he should be able to register some good save points for us.
GAL vs RM Dream11 Defenders
They might have leaked in the 5 goals in the two matches they have played in till now but Real Madrid have managed to put in a more disciplined performance across La Liga. And with the side resting several of its regular players in the weekend for the upcoming clash, the backline should be a fresh one, a unit capable of imbedding a shutout in place.
It sees us move into this encounter with Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal from the side while we are choosing the two defenders from the opposition as well. Where CB Christian Luyindama comes in owing to the tackles and blocks he’ll be ingraining in place, fullback Mariano Ferreira offers us a more attacking pick, someone who is capable of contributing with either a goal or assist today.
GAL vs RM Dream11 Midfielders
Real Madrid supporters are known for their refusal to show patience with players, berating them after a couple of lacklustre showings and new signing Eden Hazard has been the latest player to learn this. He’s endured a howler of a time ever since moving from Chelsea and has been rampantly slammed by the club’s ardent supporters who have been unsparingly in the swipes they have directed towards his way.
However, he’s a worldclass performer, someone who will be least affected by all this, a player who is revered for his quality to rise to the occasion. It sees us getting him in from the side along with Federico Valverde while from the other side we are venturing in with CDM Jean Michael-Seri and Younes Belhanda.
GAL vs RM Dream11 Strikers
Real Madrid’s leading goal scorer, Karim Benzema with the 6 goals and 1 assist till now in La Liga is opted by us for this encounter with the player looking the likeliest to score for them at the moment. Especially with bale out due to an injury, he’ll see a slew of attacking plays come across his way, increasing his likelihood of adding to his tally.
The one player is chosen by us from the opposition as well with us opting to get in Andone from the side for today’s match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We will be entrusting Hazard to be our captain for today while Benzema is the vice-captain.
